Effective Advertising Mailers & Flyers
Mailer #1 – The $6 Million Dollar Man
Law – is a very competitive industry.
So, we wanted to give Charles McCorquodale Law a great introduction to his neighbors in Mobile, Alabama…
We chose a fun story –
Ever Watch the TV Show – The $6 Million Dollar Man?
Steve Austin is an astronaut who is in an accident and gets put back together – with stronger, faster parts!
Isn’t this exactly what you’d want if you were in an accident?
To have the pieces of your life put back together in a way where you are better, faster, and stronger…
While Charles McCorquodale can’t give you superpowers, it’s his goal to see you fully compensated for your injuries and loss, so you can live a better life!
These are the kinds of connecting stories – we create for YOU – when you hire the Content Creators at Effective Advertising.
Mailer #2 – You Need a Lawyer, Because the World’s Not Fair!
When the world is fair – you won’t need a lawyer! Until then… I’m here for YOU!
We introduce Charles as a superhero. His big smile sets him apart from other lawyers who fold their arms and list their accolades.
We put a cape on him because Charles McCorquodale could save your life (financially) like a Superhero – if you’ve been injured!
With the same inviting slogan – When it happens to you – I’m here for you!
We know what matters most to you is –
Getting fair treatment.
Charles is the family man here, passing along his wisdom to his son – “The world isn’t fair – and that’s why we all need a good lawyer.”
That’s the real story, and it’s why we all need someone like Charles at times.
Telling stories like this – is how we connect with your audience and bring you extra financial success. We serve you by giving your message the refining polish and time a great product, service, or event deserves.
