A Practical Guide That Made a Visible Difference to My Business
"After one year of relative success as a marketing consultant, I read Persuading On Paper by Marcia Yudkin and recognized that I was trying to sell my product instead of 'stating the problem clearly in order to connect with my customers' concerns and motivating them to act right away.' (Chapter 2)  In short, I was too busy trying to sell them, that I wasn't just letting my customer buy!

"I also realized that I was telling them why they should buy instead of helping them specifically see why they needed what I had to sell. By implementing the guidelines on page 16 and using an informal voice (Chapter 4), my flyers went from boring and crowded to conveying clear, direct information that was entertaining to read.  Thank you, Marcia, for a practical and applicable book." - Jo Lembo, Independent Marketing Consultant
