All the business building used the same name:: MORE LONDON, following by 1, 2 until 6, MORE LONDON 7 is under construction.

告诉我

告诉我。。当一个人情绪低落时。。能做什么?
身边发生的事情,十分的匪夷所思,堪称荒谬。。

我能做什么??
一切都不在我的控制范围,撇开这不说,我还能说什么?

我一直都感觉到我是能的。。
我能比我现在更好。。我是能成功的。。
但似乎又有点过分自信了。。

真的很低落。。也许自信是促使我低落点达到我的底线。。
一直在问, 我真的做得不好吗?
我甚至不敢面对一些对我有期望的人。。包括我在内
我是极度的沮丧。。。
当人有经过历练,也许会对一些很执着,我是~

我梦想有天能在事业上创高峰。。
也许有一天。。
但仿佛以遥不可及了。。。

她来听我的演唱会

作曲:梁文福 作词:黄中岳
 

她来听我的演唱会
在十七岁的初恋第一次约会

男孩为了她彻夜排队
半年的积蓄买了门票一对

我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎
三年的感情一封信就要收回

她记得月台汽笛声声在催
播我的歌陪着人们流泪

嘿 陪人们流泪


她来听我的演唱会
在二十五岁恋爱是风光明媚

男朋友背着她送人玫瑰
她不听电话夜夜听歌不睡


我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎
成年人分手后都像无所谓

和朋友一起买醉卡拉OK
唱我的歌陪着画面流泪

嘿 陪着流眼泪



我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎
在三十三岁真爱那么珍贵

年轻的女孩求她让一让位
让男人决定跟谁远走高飞

嘿 谁在远走高飞



我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎
她努力不让自己看来很累

岁月在听我们唱无怨无悔
在掌声里唱到自己流泪

嘿 唱到自己流泪
 


她来听我的演唱会
在四十岁后听歌的女人很美
小孩在问她为什么流泪
身边的男人早已渐渐入睡

她静静听着我的演唱会




一首诠释着一个女人的一生。。
也许也可以发生在男人身上。。
很有意境。。
听了后。。。回想一下。。

大卫·奥格威经典语录 David Ogilvy quote

People

I admire people with gentle manners who treat other people as human beings. I abhor quarrelsome people. I abhor people who wage paper-warfare. Confessions of an Advertising Man
我佩服温文有礼,以诚待人者。我憎恶那些争论不休的人。我痛恨那些打笔战的人。
If you always hire people who are smallerthan you are,we shall become a company of dwarfs. If,on the other hand,you always hire people who are bigger than you are, we shall become a company of giants.
如果你经常雇用比你弱小的人,将来我们就会变成侏儒公司;如果你每次都雇用比你能干的人,日后我们必定成为一家巨人公司。
If you ever find a man who is better than you are-hire him. If necessary,pay him more than you pay yourself. Principles of Management
当你发掘到一个比你还杰出的人才,立即雇用他。必要时,付给他比自己还高的薪水。
I despise toadies who suck up to their bosses;they are generally the same people who bully their subordinates.
我鄙视对上司谄媚奉承的马屁精;这种人通常也擅于欺凌威协他们的下属。

ADVERTISING PEOPLE
广告人

Advertising is a business of words,but advertising agencies are infested with men and women who cannot write. They are as helpless as deaf mutes on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera.
Confessions of an Advertising Man
广告是一个文字的行业,但很多广告代理商却充斥着无法写作的男女。他们就像在大都会歌剧院舞台上的聋哑人,一样的茫然无助。
I don't believe in this specialisation. Who said that there's one breed of cat which is an account executive,and then there are the creative people-and they are quite different? This has been perpetuated by both sides for years. It's nonsense.
我从来不相信所谓的专科分类。谁说有些人是天生的业务人员,而另一些就该是创意人员—真的有那么不同吗?双方人员长久以来所信奉的分类,其实是毫无意义的。
In most agencies,account executives outnumber the copywriters two to one. If you were a dairy farmer,would you employ twice as many milkers as you had cows
在大部分的广告代理商,业务人员的数目,往往是文案人员的两倍。如果你是个酪农,你所雇用的挤牛奶工人,会比牛只数目多一倍吗?

CREATIVE PEOPLE
创意人

Few of the great creators have bland personalities. They are cantankerous egotists,the kind of men who are unwelcome in the modern corporation. Confessions of an Advertising Man
伟大的创作家很少具有温和的个性。他们是不易相处的自我主义者,是现代企业中不受欢迎的一群。

ACCOUNT EXECUTIVES
业务人员

Madison Avenue is full of masochists who unconsciously provoke rejection by their clients. I now brilliant men who have lost every account they have ever handled. Confessions of an Advertising Man
麦迪逊大道充塞着许多被虐待狂,他们总在无意识中煽动起客户的排拒感;我认识一些出色能干的人,总被客户辞退。
One of the most brilliant colleagues I ever had was blackballed by three clients in one year;the experience hurt him so badly that he left the agency business for ever. If you are too thin-skinned to survive this hazard,you should not become an account executive in an advertising agency.
我曾与一个极为出色的人共事,他在一年之内被三个客户解雇;这经验对他伤害极深,并教他永永远远离开广告这行业。假如你是个脸皮薄、无法在险运中生存的人,就不要在广告公司担任业务人员。

COMMITTEES
委员会

A lot of advertisements and television commercials look like minutes of a committee meeting,and that is what they are. Advertising seems to sell most when it is written by a solitary individual. He must study the product,the research and the precedents. Then he must shut the door of his office and write the advertisements.
许多平面及电视广告,看起来就像委员会开会的会议记录,事实也是如此。最具销售力的广告,往往是由个人独立完成的作品。他必先深入研究产品,调查资料及其他案例,然后关紧办公室大门,埋首做广告。
Nowadays it is the fashion to pretend that no single individual is ever responsible for a successful advertising campaign. This emphasis on "teamwork"is bunkum-a conspiracy of the mediocre majority.
很多人认为,一个成功的广告活动不是一人之功。这种强调「团队合作」的论调其实是欺人之谈—是平凡庸碌之辈的阴谋。

LEADERSHIP
领导

Do not summon people to your office-it frightens them. Instead go to see them in their offices. This makes you visible throughout the agency. A Chairman who never wanders about his agency becomes a hermit,out of touch with his staff.
叫人到你的办公室,只会吓怕他们;走到他们的办公室看看吧!你将更了解公司的状况。一个从不四处走动的管理人员,久而久之将形同离群索居的隐士,与员工失去联系。
Our offices must always be headed by the kind of men who command respect. Not phonies,zeros or bastards.
公司应该由备受敬重的人领导,而不是伪君子、一无是处的小人,或拙劣之徒。

CLIENTS
客户

I always use my clients' products. This is not toadyism but elementary good manners.
我总是用客户的产品。这并不是谄媚奉承,而是良好的基本态度。
Don't expect your agency to pay for all the dry holes they drill on your behalf. Confessions of an Advertising Man
当代理商为你在荒井掘泉之际,不应期望他们负担所有的费用。
The best way to get new accounts is to create for our present clients the kind of advertising that will attract prospective clients. We do not have new business departments in our offices. No first class man will take the job;no second class man can do it effectively.
赢得新客户的最好方法,就是为现有客户创造出色的广告,从而吸引潜在客户。在我们的公司里没有专门开发新客户的部门,因为一流的人才不会做这样的工作,而二流的人则做不好。
If you resign accounts every time you feel like doing so,you will empty your portfolio every year.
如果你每次想辞退客户时,就真的这么做,那你的客户名单将所剩无几。

CONSUMERS
消费者

You aren't advertising to a standing army;you are advertising to a moving parade. Three million consumers get married every year. The advertisement which sold a refrigerator to those who got married last year will probably be just as successful with those who'll get married next year. Advertisement is just like a radar sweep, constantly hunting new prospects as they come into the market. Get a good radar and keep it sweeping.
你不是对一群站立不动的士兵做广告,而是针对正在前进的游行队伍。每年有三百万的消费者结为连理。若一个针对新婚夫妇的电冰箱广告,于今年创下佳绩,对明年将结婚的人也可能会一样成功。广告好比雷达扫描器一般,在新的消费者进入市场的同时,持续不断的猎取潜在顾客。找一个好雷达,并让它持续运转吧。
The consumer isn't a moron,she is your wife. You insult her intelligence if you assume that a mere slogan and a few vapid adjectives will persuade her to buy anything. She wants all the information you can give her.
消费者不是白痴;她是你的妻子。如果你认为只要一句广告词配上一些索然无味的形容词,就可以说服她去买任何东西,那你是在侮辱她的智慧。她要的是所有你能提供的资讯

THE POWER OF ADVERTISING
广告的力量

I once found myself conspiring with a President of the Board of Trade as to how we might persuade H.M. Treasury to cough up more money for the British Travel advertising in America. Said Sir David Eccles "Why does any American in his senses spend his holidays in the cold damp of an English summer when he could equally well bask under Italian skies? I can only suppose
that your advertising is the answer. "Quite so.
有一次我和英国的内阁阁员共襄大事——我们计划如何说服英皇陛下的财务大臣,使其同意提高英国旅游业在美国推广的预算。他说道:「为什么一个意识清醒的美国人,要在又湿又冷的英国夏季耗掉他的假日,而其实他右以选择在意大利的蓝天下享受日光浴?我想你的广告便是答案。」一语中的。

PROFESSIONAL DISCIPLINE
专业锻炼

I frequently hear the Magic Lanterns described as rules. They are not rules. They are reports. Reports on how consumers react to different stimuli. If it were possible to create great advertising merely by studying the Lanterns, any damn fool could do it. More is required: innovative genius. The Lanterns only light the way for genius, indicating the most fruitful path to explore.
我经常听到「神灯系列」被奉为圭臬。「神灯」并非金科玉律,而是几篇有关消费者如何回应不同外在刺激的报告。如果只靠研读「神灯」就可以创作出好广告,那任何一个白痴都做得到。好广告更需要勇于创新的天才。「神灯」只为天才们引路,指向那条等待发掘的丰沛途径。

创意会议报告
Shakespeare wrote his sonnets within a strict discipline, fourteen lines of iambic pentameter, rhyming in three quatrains and a couplet. Were his sonnets dull? Mozart wrote sonatas within an equally rigid discipline-exposition ,development, and recapitulation.
Were they dull?
莎士比亚以严格的规则写十四行诗,其中节拍鲜明,抑扬顿挫,隐含着韵律之美。难道他的十四行诗沉闷吗?莫扎特写奏鸣曲也是遵循一个相当严格的法则——起、承、转、合。难道他的乐曲沉闷吗?
Supposing you've got an acute appendicitis. You've got to be operated on tonight. Would you like to have a surgeon who's read some books of anatomy and knows how to do that operation-or would you prefer to have a surgeon who refused to read all books about anatomy and relied on his own instinct? Why should a manufacturer bet his money-perhaps the future of his company-on your instinct?
假设你患了急性阑尾炎,必须在今天晚上动手术。你希望是一个研读过解剖学的外科医生,还是一个拒绝阅读有关书籍,只相信自己直觉的人来替你动这个手术呢?为什么厂商愿意拿金钱——甚至是他公司的前途——压注在你的直觉上呢?
I had a friend who was the King's surge on in England. One day I asked him what makes a great surgeon. He replied, "What distinguishes a great surgeon is his knowledge. He knows more than other surgeons. During an operation he finds something which he wasn't expecting, recognizes it and knows what to do about it."
It's the same thing with advertising people. The good ones know more. How do you get to know more? By reading books about advertising. By picking the brains of people who know more than you do. From the Magic Lanterns. And from experience. I can't stand callow amateurs who aren't
sufficiently interested in the craft of advertising to assume the posture of students.
我有个朋友是英国的御用外科医生。有一天,我问他如何成为一个优秀的外科医师。他回答道:「外科医师的朗窳在于其知识渊博的程度。优秀的外科医师懂得比其他人多。在手术的过程中,当他发现超乎他预期的问题时,他可以辨识出症结所在,并懂得如何处理。」广告人也是一样。懂得愈多的人愈优秀。如何知道得更多呢?阅读更多有关广告的书籍,从那些懂得比你多的人的身上学习,由「神灯系列」及经验中,发掘更多的知识。我无法忍受并不热衷于广告的外行人,装扮成学生的样子。

POSITIONING
品牌定位

The most important decision is how to position your product. How to Create Advertising that Sells
最重要的决策是如何替你的产品定位。
A lot of successful advertising was created before POSITIONING was invented. And a lot of today's campaigns are based on optimum positioning but are totally ineffective-because they are dull, or badly constructed, or ineptly written. If nobody reads your advertisement or looks at your commercial, it doesn't do you much good to have the right positioning.
有很多成功的广告是在「定位」前创造的。现时有许多活动是以最理想的品牌定位为前题,但却完全不见彰效——因为它们索然无味,或是架构很差,或者是用字遣词不适当。即使有合适的品牌定位,如果没有人去读去看你的平面或电视广告,一切也是无效。

BRAND IMAGE
品牌形象

Every advertisement must contribute to the complex symbol which is the brand image.
所有广告都应该有助于建立一个复杂的象征符号,即品牌形象。
Most manufacturers are reluctant to accept any limitation on the image of their brand. They want it to be all things to all people. They want their brand to be a male brand and a female brand. An upper class brand and a plebeian brand. They generally end up with a brand which has no personality of any kind, a wishy washy neuter. No capon ever rules the roost.
大多数的厂商都不愿意接受自己的品牌形象有局限;他们想要面面俱圆的大众品牌——属于男性也属于女性,是上流社会也是市井小民的品牌。这种四处讨好的心理只会让品牌完全丧失个性,而成为平淡无味的无性商品。自古至今,太监无法当皇帝,正是同样的道理。
It takes uncommon guts to stick to one style in the face of all the pressures to "come up with something new" every six months. It is tragically easy to be stampeded into change. But golden rewards await the advertiser who has the brains to create a coherent image, and the stability to stick with it over a long period.
广告人平均每六个月就要承受「来点新花样」的强大压力。在这样的情况下,坚持一致的形式实在需要很大的勇气,而迎合改变却是容易的。然而,美好的报偿却等着那些肯努力创作一致形象,并经年累月地忠于此形象的广告商。
The mail order advertiser has no retailers to shrink and expand their inventories, to push his product or to hide it under the counter. He must rely on his advertisements to do the entire selling job. Either the reader clips the coupon or he doesn't. A few days after his advertisement appears, the mail order writer knows whether it is profitable or not. For twenty seven years I have kept my eyes riveted on what mail order advertisers do in their advertisements.
邮购商没有零售商来帮他减少、增加、促销或收藏其存货。他必须完全依靠邮购广告来销售他的产品。消费者看到广告后,可能会剪下传单上的折价券,也可能完全置之不理。只要在广告刊登后的几天内,邮购撰文者便可知道这则广告是否具有销售力。二十七年来,我一直密切观察邮购商如何做广告。

COPYWRITING
文案

It is a mistake to use highfalutin language when you advertise to uneducated people. I once used the word OBSOLETE in a headline, only to discover that 33% of housewives had no idea of what it meant. In another headline, I used the word INEFFABLE, only to discover that I didn't know what it meant myself.
当你针对未受教育的人做广告,别用艰涩难懂的字眼。我有一次用了「废弛」在广告标题中,发现有百分之三十三的家庭主妇根本不知道它的意思。在另一个标题中,我用了「不可名状」,才发现连我自己也搞不清我想讲什么。

ART
艺术

Once upon a time I was riding on the top of a First Avenue bus,when I heard a mythical housewife say to another,"Molly,my dear,I would have bought that new brand of toilet soap if only they hadn't set the body copy in ten point Garamond." Don't you believe it. What really decides consumers to buy or not to buy is the content of your advertising,not its form.
有一次我坐在第一大道的巴士上层,听到一位主妇和另外一位主妇说道:「我亲爱的茉莉啊,要不是他们放十级的Garamond字形在这个广告上,我早就买了这个新的香皂。」千万别相信这一套。真正决定消费者购买与否的关键在于广告的内容,而不是它的结构形式。
Most of the art schools which train unsuspecting students for careers in advertising still subscribe to the mystique of the Bauhaus. They hold that the success of an advertisement depends on such things as"balance","movement",and "design" but can they prove it? My research suggest that
these aesthetic intangibles do not increase sales,and I cannot conceal my hostility to the old school of art directors whotake such preachments seriously .
许多培育懵懂学生成为广告人的艺术学校至今仍赞同包浩斯的秘诀。他们认为一个成功的广告需要靠「均衡」、「动感」和「设计」来达成,但是他们可以证明吗?我的研究却指出,这些无形的艺术美学并不会增加销售。对于那些执着于这类大道理的老学院艺术指导师,我实在无法隐藏敌意。包浩斯—1919年创立于德国威玛的一所学校,专门研究艺术、设计与建筑,以其实用建筑形式之发展及建筑材料之实验应用而著名。
"Making the logo twice the size" is often a good thing to do ,because most advertisements are deficient in brand identification. "Showing the clients'faces" is also a better stuatagem than it may sound,because the public is more interested in personalities than in corporations. Some clients can be projected as human symbols oftheir own products.
「把商标放大一倍」是可行之道,因为大多数的广告都缺少品牌识别。「展现客户的面貌」也许是更佳的计策,因为消费大众对于人格特性比对企业团体更有兴趣。有些客户本身就是代表其产品的象征。
H.L.Menchen once said that nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public. That is not true. I have come to believe that it pays to make all your layouts project a feeling of good taste,provided that you do it unobtrusively. An ugly layout suggests an ugly produ
ct. There are very few products which do not benefit from being given a first class ticket through life.
孟肯曾经说过没有人会因为低估美国大众的品味而破产。这并不是真的。我渐渐地相信,赋予广告稿一种好品味是值得的。丑陋的广告意味着品质低劣的商品。在贴上一流标签之后,极少产品不因此而获利终生。

LAYOUTS
版面

Most headlines are set too big to be legible in the magazines or newspaper. Never approve a layout until you have seen it pasted into the magazine or newspaper for which it is destined. If you pin up the layouts on a lulletin board and appraise them from fifteen feet,you will produce posters.
许多在杂志或报纸中的广告标题都因为太大而不易辨读。无论是登在哪里,若你没有看过它贴在该杂志或报纸上的效果,绝对不要放行。如果你把这个设计稿钉在公布栏上,并在十五尺远处来评鉴它,你的作品将会是海报。
Today,almost all our layouts look "addy".Too bad. How do you sell editorial layouts to clients? Try saying,"would you like the editors of half a dozen magazines to devote a whole page to your product?" The client will reply,"Yes,of course. But it is impossible." You say,"It is possible.
You buy the space and I will put an editorial in it. Look,here is your editorial.Better than any advertisement,isn't it?"
现在,我们大部份广告版面的编排方式都有太过「广告化」。糟糕极了。你该如何将「编辑式」的版面卖给客户呢?试试这样询问你的客户:「你是否希望多数杂志的主编,提供全页的版面给你的产品?」客户会回答道:「当然希望呀!但那是不可能的。」你说:「这是可能的,你只要负责买版面,我就可以让编辑式的手法深入其中。瞧!这就是你的编辑式平面稿。怎么样,比其他广告还好,不是吗?」
Most readers look at the photograph first.If you put it in the middle of the page,the reader will start by looking in the middle.Then her eye must go up to read the headline;this doesn't work ,because people have a habit of scanning downwards.However,suppose a few readers do read the headline after seeing the photograph below it.After that,you require them to jump down past the photograph which they have already seen.Not bloody likely.
大部份的读者都会先看照片。如果你把照片放在整篇广告的中间,读者便会从中间开始阅读。此时,他们必须将眼光往上移去读标题?这是不自然的,因为人们在阅读时都会有往下浏览的习惯。然而,假设真的有少部份人看过下方的照片后,又回头念了标题,你还希望他们跳过已经看过照片,继续地往下阅读?不太可能吧!
It has been found that the less an advertisement looks like an advertisement,and the more it looks like an editorial, the more readers stop,look and read. Therefore,study the graphics used by editors and imitate them. Study the graphics used in advertisements,and avoid them.
有人发现一篇「编辑式」的广告比「广告化」的广告吸引更多读者注意、观看及阅读。所以,应该学习和仿效杂志的图文编排手法;并设法避免使用一般广告版面设计。
All too often the bottoms of advertisements are littered with miscellaneous crap,gadgets,etc. Get rid of them;they contribute to an appearance of untidiness which reduces"impact"and readership.
在广告版面的底部,最常见到杂乱无章的垃圾及小玩意儿。拿掉它们;它们所带来的凌乱感觉只会让广告的「影响力」打折扣,并减少读者人数。

TELEVISION COMMERCIALS
电视广告

I have found that it is easier to double the selling power of a commercial than to double the audience of a programme. Thismay come as news to the Hollywood hidalgos who produce programmes,and look down their noses at us obscure copywriters who write the commercials.
我发现要令电视广告的销售力倍增,比令节目观众倍增容易得多了。这项发现,对于轻视我们这群名不经传的广告撰文者的好莱坞节目制作人来说,可能是新闻。
The purpose of a commercial is not to entertain the viewer but to sell him. Horace Schwerin reports that there is no correlation between people liking commercials and being sold by them. But this does not mean that your commercials should be deliberately badmannered. On the contrary,there is reason to believe that is pays to make them human and friendly,if you can do so without being unctuous.
电视广告的目的并不是娱乐大众,而是将产品卖给他们。贺瑞斯·史威林在报告指出,广告的受欢迎程度和产品的销量是不相关的。但这并不表示你的广告就要刻意地以很恶劣的态度呈现给大众。相反,如果你可以不虚伪地让广告既人性化又亲切的呈现出来,其实是值得的。盖洛普博士的报告指出,如果你在述说某件事时不能佐以图例说明的话,那观众很快就会忘记你所说的话。我的看法是,如果你不把它展示,那实在没有说它的必要。试关掉声音来观看你的电视广告,如果它不能传达出你想说的信息,这广告便是毫无用处了。
Research has shown that commercials which open with a dramatic visual hold their a udience better than commercials which don't. if you are advertisinfg a fire-extinguisher,open with the fire.
研究指出,以戏剧化的视觉效果做开场的广告,比一般的广告容易抓住观众。如果你做灭火器的广告,就在广告的开端放把火吧!

JINGLES
广告歌曲

Candor compells me to admit that I have no conclusive research to support my view that jingles are less persuasive than the spoken word. It is based on the difficulty I always experience in hearing the wordsin jingles,and on my experience as a door-to-door salesman;I never sang to my prospects. The advertisers who believe in the selling power of jingles have never had to sell anything.
虽然我没有真实的研究数据支持,但我深信广告歌的说服力不如口头的述说。我一向难以听清楚广告歌歌词,而我当推销员的时候,从来不会对我的潜在顾客唱歌。那些对广告歌曲销售力深信不疑的广告主可从来没有亲身卖过任何东西。
Next time you decide to have the salespitch sung in a television or radio commercial,play the song to half-a-dozen people who know nothing about the product. Then ask them what it said.
当你决定在比稿的电视或广播广告中唱歌时,请把歌曲播放给一些完全不了解这个产品的人听一听,并问他们这首歌曲说了些什么。

POSTERS
海报

I have never liked posters. The passing motorist does not have time to read more than six words on a poster,and my early experience as a door-to-door salesman convinced me that it is impossible to sell anything with only six words. In a newspaper or magazine advertisement,I can use hund
reds of words. Posters are for sloganeers.
我从来没有喜欢过海报。匆匆驶过的驾车者通常没有时间看超过六个字;而根据我做推销员的经验,想用六个字就把产品推销出去,绝不可能。在报纸或杂志的广告中,我却可以用上百个字辞。海报是给那些「标语专家」用的。

ADVERTISING AWARDS
广告奖

It is the professional duty of the advertising agent to conceal his artifice. When Aeschines spoke,they said,"How well he speaks." But when Demosthenes spoke,they said,"Let us march against Philip."
隐藏自己的技巧,是广告公司的专业责任。当艾斯奇演讲,听众说:「多么美好的演说!」但是狄摩斯在演说时,人人却喊:「打倒菲利浦王!」我支持狄摩斯派。
Resist the temptation to write the kind of copy which wins awards. I am always gratified when I win an award,but most of the campaigns which produce results never win awards because they don't draw attention to themselves.
务必抗拒那种为得奖而写广告文案的诱惑。我得奖时,总是很满足;但是大部份有成果的广告活动都没有得过奖,因为广告活动发展的源头并不是以得奖为目的。

GOOD TASTE
好品味

While you are responsible to your clientsfor sales results,you are also responsible to consumers for the kind of advertising you bring into their homes. I abhor advertising that is blatant,dull,or dishonest. Agencies which transgress this principle are not widely respected.
你对客户的销售业绩负责,也对深入消费者家庭的广告影片负责。我痛恨那些华而不实、平淡无奇、或自欺欺人的广告。与此原则背道而驰的代理商势必无法广受尊崇。
Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your own family to read. You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine.
你不愿让家人看到的广告,不要做。你不会对你的妻子说谎,那么也不要对我的妻子说谎。

IDEAS
创意

Senior men have no monopoly on great ideas. Nor do creative people. Some of the best ideas come from account executives,researchers and others. Encourage this;you need all the ideas you can get .
资深人员没有独揽好创意的特权,创意人员也不行。有些绝佳创意来自业务人员、研究人员或其他人员。鼓励大家参与创作,因我们需要极多创意。管理的原则
Unless your advertising is built on a BIGI DEA it will pass like a ship in the night.
除非你的广告源自「大创意」,否则它就像黑夜中驶过汪洋的船只,无人知晓。
Encourage innovation. Change is our life-blood,stagnation our death knell.鼓励创新。改变是我们的生命血脉,停滞则如同敲起丧钟。

RESEARCH
研究

The most important word in the vocabulary of advertising is TEST. Test your promise. Test your media. Test your headlines and your illustrations. Test the size of your advertisements. Test your frequency. Test your level of expenditure. Test your commercials. Never stop testing,and your
advertising will never stop improving.
在广告界中,测试最重要。测试你的承诺。测试你的媒体选择。测试你的标题及图片。测试你广告的版面大小。测试你的刊播频度。测试你的广告花费。测试你的广告影片。不断测试,那么你的广告将会不断的进步。

PROMOTIONS
促销

A steady diet of price-off promotions lowers the esteem in which the consumer holds the product;can anything which is always sold at a discount be desirable?
经年不变的减价促销活动,会使消费者减低对产品的评价。试问一个老是打折扣的产品怎么可能引人渴求?

JARGON
专业术语

Our business is infested with idiots who try to impress by using pretentious jargon. They say that commercials for food products must include "an affirmative eatingexperience". The latest horror is SUBOPTIMIZE.
我们这一行有群自命不凡的白痴,爱使用专业术语以吸引大众目光。他们说食品广告必需涵括「一种确定的饮食经验」。最近出现的一个令人憎恶的词汇是「次完美化」。

WORK
工作

I figure that my staff will be less reluctant to work overtime if I work longer hours than they do.
我发现当我的工作时间比下属长,他们较乐意加班。
I believe in the Scottish proverb:"Hard work never killed a man." Men die of boredom,psychological conflict and disease. They do not die of hard work.
我深信苏格兰的一句谚语:「辛勤工作绝不会置人于死地。」人们死于厌烦、心理冲突和疾病。但他们不会死于辛勤工作。
Agencies which frequently work nights and weekends are more stimulating,more successful-and more profitable. A tight ship is a happy ship-provided it is an informalship.
一家日以继夜、持续不断工作的广告代理商不仅比较刺激、比较成功、而且获利也比较高。一个效率高、又不拘形式的工作环境是令人心旷神怡的。

EFFICIENCY
效率

In the best establishments,promises are always kept,whatever it may cost in agony and overtime.
首屈一指的公司,为了信守承诺,会付出精神痛苦与加班熬夜,不惜一切。
To keep your ship moving through the water at maximum efficiency,you have to keep scraping the barnacles off its bottom. It is rare for a department head to recommend the abolition of a job,or even the elimination of a man;the pressure from below is always for adding. If the initiative
for barnacle-scraping does not come from management,barnacles will never be scraped.
在湍急的河流中,要让船只以最快的速度前进,你必须不断刮除积附在船底的障碍物。部门主管很少主动建议废除某项职位或甚至辞退某个职员;来自下层的压力总是要求加入。如果管理阶层不能采取主动当机立断,障碍物永远无法铲除。
It is the inescapable duty of management to fire incompetent people.
辞退能力不足的人是管理阶层无可避免的责任。

EXCELLENCE
卓越

The pursuit of excellence is less profitable than the pursuit of bigness,but it can be more satisfying.
