Excerpt from the book:
"Copywriting can differ from business writing in its use of grammar. It's been called
the rebel son of business writing - and traditional English composition in general.
Copywriters will unabashedly use colloquilisms, cliches, contractions, repition,
underlining, and italics to get their point across. Ads and brochures may be riddled with
sentences starting with And, But, or Or. Sentence fragments are also common.
Copywriters have always strived to make their writing conversational. Why? Because
one-to-one conversations are the most persuasive form of communications. They are direct
and personal (even if they are mailed to thousands of people)."
