Wisdom of David Ogilvy

April 15, 2008

I just found this quote attributed to David Ogilvy, in his book Confessions of an Advertising Man:

People do not buy from bad-mannered liars.

Well, not twice, anyhow.

Considering that David Ogilvy is sometimes called the Father of Advertising, one might do worse than think about his statement.

For some reason, I feel like all of my thousands of words on Cluetrain marketing and so forth just got summed up in those eight words.
