    Creating good quality content is worth every effort one puts in. It actually does a preselling, instead of one trying to convince.

    Thanks for sharing this image Brian.
    All the best,

    Nice one Brian..

    Here’s one I like from Ogilvy: “If it doesn’t sell, it isn’t creative” -Creative content helps us sell products, but also “sell” our ideas and the way we think. If it doesn’t do that, then it’s back to the drawing board.

    Not to mention he would not approve of the design of this flyer, as it is opposed to one of his principal philosophies concerning type & background. :)

    Okay, this sounds stupid, but I have never been above stupidity:
    Where, exactly, on a blog post or web page would I paste this code? Create a link and put it in the post somewhere? Put it somewhere (where?) on the back end of the WordPress post?
    I honestly don’t know, but thanks for the info. Always great.

      You’d go into your “HTML” view on your content editor (works the same for a page or a post) and just paste the code in. Then your viewers would see just what you see here, the graphic image.

      If you’re not on WordPress, there’s nearly always a “code” or “html” window for this kind of thing.

      Does that make sense?
