 Content

4.  Is there a central theme behind your ad?
5.  Does your headline and sub-headline stick to the key offer and reinforce the ultimate benefit?
6.  Is your product or service dramatized to its best advantage by format and/or presentation?
7.  Are good quality drawings or photographs used to portray the product?
8.  Do you show widely adaptable examples of your product or service in use?
