One of my favorite things to do is travel around the State and visit with our members. This week I had the privilege of criss-crossing the Commonwealth, from Paducah to Pikeville and points in between, with sales guru and creative wiz, Paul Weyland. For those of you who attended one of our 6 sessions this week, you undoubtedly left with a new perspective on producing genuine, relatable spots without the overwhelming abundance of stereotypical cliches. After all, we don’t converse with each other in sentences that sound like a Father’s Day weekend sale at the local car lot. In fact, Paul suggests that you use the “best friend test” and never say anything in a commercial that you wouldn’t say to your best friend. Paul also taught attendees about gross profit margin and the importance of calculating realistic expectations for a schedule or promotion. With expressions like “get it off me”, “black hairy tongue” and “like getting slapped across the belly with a sack full of wet mice”, attendees were certainly kept on their toes with Paul’s quick whit and humorous delivery. Training sessions like these are just one example of the tremendous benefits made available to KBA members throughout the year.

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"
