NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In The Creative Copywriter's Companion, an innovative new how-to book by one of America's most award-winning copywriters, Tom Attea shares many original guidelines for copywriting in traditional and digital media. Attea conducted the copywriting training program for five years at advertising agency Young & Rubicam in New York and today is often the #1 ranked copywriter on Upwork, the world's largest freelance website.
Different From Traditional Copywriting Guidelines
Attea explains the advertising creative process, so copywriters can work with it intelligently, and he offers his unique Creative Exploratory as a way to solve difficult creative problems.
He thinks the traditional Unique Selling Proposition, or USP, while still useful, is not sufficiently consumer-focused and offers the guideline, "Make the most appealing brand promise you can and prove it with every credible support point you have."
He thinks the AIDA principle – to seek Attention, Interest, Desire, and Action – asks for effects, which he says can't be controlled, and he offers causes.
Attea believes his guidelines enable copywriters to go beyond the usual "good" or "great" advertising to advertising that is consistently strategically right and creatively bright.
