John Carlton’s Best Ads: Butt-Ugly Golf: Marketing

John Carlton’s Best Ads: Butt-Ugly Golf

I’ve written something like 4,000 direct mail letters and direct response ads for golf products now. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but not much.

Sometimes, the best ads come from sheer desperation. I was hitting the very bottom of my bag of tricks last year, when my client requested yet another “killer” letter for another new golf product.

I’d just come from a real-estate seminar, where I was a featured speaker. And at that event, I met a ballsy agent with a good bit of salesman’s blood in him. He’d been running a small ad in local papers with the headline: Butt-Ugly! The ad described a house that would politely be called a fixer-upper.

It was the biggest-pulling ad he’d ever run.
