- Headline Focus: Be concise and entice the reader to read the rest of the copy.
- Typefaces: Utilize bold, italics and spacing without mixing a variety of typefaces.
- White Space: Make sure there is enough open space in your ad, not too busy.
- Reason: Create a sense of urgency; give a reason to buy now.
- Simplify: Say what you want to say but keep it simple, not wordy.
- Images: Logos and photos attract attention and are recognizable.
