You have to prove that the Freberg way will sell their product better than if they just did straight advertising. Whenever I give a lecture or seminar, that’s what I try to get across to people. I hear very few radio commercials that sound like I could have written them or that they got the idea.

We only need so much to survive, but this world we live in tells us we need more stuff to be happy. We’re inundated with our televisions, the Internet and advertising that says in order to be happy you have to have these things. When you say, ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme,’ you will always be in short supply.
– Wayne Dyer
We think we have to work because the advertising industry has elevated wants into needs. The newspapers and the television batter us incessantly with the latest ‘must-haves’, whether that’s shoes, videogames or patio heaters. As a result, mums think they ‘have’ to work at Tesco in order to buy expensive trainers.
