Sarah Klongerbo Podcast Episode on Stuff Marketers Say Podcast

“Keeping it short and sweet is probably the best thing that you can do when you’re writing ad copy. Whether you’re new to copywriting or you’re an experienced copywriter, the tendency is to want to insert our own ego in there and be witty or try out something new.
