“If you know your market well and if you know who you’re talking to and know your customer, then you’ll know exactly what to say to get them to at least hear you out and read what you have to say. Then the only people that you hear back from are the people who are the most interested. So it saves you all of this time.” – Ben Settle
“A copywriter should have an understanding of people, an insight into them, a sympathy toward them.” – George Gribbin
