Congratulations to AWAI’s Great Books Club August Winners!

Each month, as part of AWAI’s Great Books Club, we give away 10 copies of the book for the upcoming meeting. The August selection is Ogilvy on Advertising by legendary adman David Ogilvy.

Ogilvy has had a huge influence on the worlds of marketing and copywriting. As David Deutsch, the A-list copywriter who will join Club moderator Marcella Allison to discuss the book in August, said: “If you haven't read and studied Ogilvy On Advertising, you are flying blind.”

This month, the lucky winners (chosen at random) are:

  • Suzanne Lieurance
  • Kathleen Stepp
  • Thomas Appiah
  • William Burch
  • Erin Jay
  • Kimberly Yoghourtjian
  • Shawn Maus
  • Chris Thornton
  • Donna Orlich
  • Molly Carter

Winners: Expect your book in the next week or so from Amazon.

If you didn’t win, it’s still easy to take part. First, sign up for the Great Books Club here. It’s easy and free. Then you can order the book here on Amazon.

The August teleconference will be on August 21st at 3 p.m. You’ll listen in as David and Marcella pull out the top tips from Ogilvy’s book and show you how you can apply his winning strategies to your copy projects.

When you register, you’ll also be eligible to win a copy of the Great Books Club selection for September, The War of Art by Steven Pressfield.

One of the best ways to perfect your copywriting skills and learn to be a profitable freelancer is to read the works of the best copywriters, entrepreneurs, and thinkers in the world. And each month, the Great Books Club offers an in-depth exploration of these life- and career-changing books.
