The Top 8 Quotes About Advertising

Advertising has come a long way since the days of five-cent newspaper ads.
From mothers with three kids in Utah buying cleaning products off of infomercials to the social media guru sharing an ad in Los Angeles, we’ve all played a part in advertising. Here’s what the experts have to say about advertising.

Mark Twain

“Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.”

David Ogilvy

“If you ever have the good fortune to create a great advertising campaign, you will soon see another agency steal it. This is irritating, but don’t let it worry you; nobody has ever built a brand by imitating somebody else’s advertising.”

Leo Burnett

“The secret of all originality in advertising is not the creation of new and tricky words and pictures, but one of putting familiar words and pictures into new relationships.”

Simon Mainwaring

“Transforming a brand into a socially responsible leader doesn’t happen overnight by simply writing new marketing and advertising strategies. It takes effort to identify a vision that your customers will find credible and aligned with their values.”

Marshall McLuhan

“Advertising is the greatest art form of the 20th century.”

David Ogilvy

“The relationship between a manufacturer and his advertising agency is almost as intimate as the relationship between a patient and his doctor. Make sure that you can live happily with your perspective client before you accept his account.”

Leo Burnett

“The work of an advertising agency is warmly and immediately human. It deals with human needs, wants, dreams and hopes. Its ‘product’ cannot be turned out on an assembly line.”

Morris Hite

“It takes good clients to make a good advertising agency. Regardless of how much talent an ad agency may have, it is ineffective without good products and services to advertise.”
