Five great writing tips: They're not just for ads

Even if you've never looked at Twitter and you'll never advertise, you should take the time to read "what can Twitter teach us about advertising?"

The IDTAGS blog's five tips include
  1. Be brief.
  2. Be impactful.
  3. Less is more.
  4. No one likes to read.
  5. Just give us the headlines.
That almost sums up what I spend 60-180 minutes discussing in my writing workshops.

If you visit theIDTAGS blog, you'll see the power of brevity combined with visual images.

Thank you, @MarkRaganCEO, for pointing me to this IDTAGS piece.
