The writer firmly believed that copywriting is an art where you learn to deliver “what your customer already wants”, so when you closely read his writing and examples of his work.
You will see that he greatly empathizes with people’s desire, the idea was to write in a way to make them believe that your product is what they desire.
Simplicity does the trick, the writing style of this writer had a very simple and direct approach, if we had to quote him that will be “Write to the chimpanzee brain – simply and directly.”
