- Sell the sizzle, not the stake.
If you consider those, it means advertisers believe that we don’t buy products or services based solely on facts and need, and that our brand preference is based more on image than on information.
How, in a market where we mute the ads, surf to another station, or simply record and zap the ads, do the TV ads work so well?
