Hi,

Welcome to REAL's winter newsletter. How time flies! The last time we were in touch our ice creams were melting in the searing heat of the summer. Now we're scraping the ice off our windscreens!

So with just a month to go until yuletide is upon us, the media is awash with a multitude of adverts designed to get you all geed up and in the mood for spending. But did you ever wonder how the words for these ads come about? Cue the really clever link into our VERY special offer centred all around the fascinating subject of copy writing - exclusive to you, our lovely client!

Growing a Mo for Charity

And just before you grab that hot drink and settle down for a 5-minute escape into our latest e-newsletter, a quick word about Movember. The Mo, slang for moustache, and November come together each year for ... Movember.

Movember!

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men's health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men's health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.

MacGyver Tip
Keep Fresh Flowers Lasting Longer with Crushed Aspirin

If you don't have a green thumb, keeping that beautiful bouquet of flowers alive may seem difficult. But if you've got some aspirin lying around, household blog DIY Life has a tip for making them last longer - no green thumb required.

The next time you get a fresh bouquet, crush a few aspirin tablets using the back of a spoon and add the powder to a vase filled with water. The salicylic acid in the aspirin will help keep the water clean and free of flower-damaging bacteria.

If you don't like the aspirin idea, you can also try this solution of sugar, bleach, and lemon juice to keep your flowers lasting longer.

Copywriting - Read this, it will change your life! (And it involves FREE stuff!)

Well that got your attention! That's what strong headlines and great copy do. They grab your attention and hold it till you are convinced you need to pick up the phone or buy now.

The thing is, the headline needs to have the right appeal, otherwise it just won't work. Jump in with 'Free Jimmy Choos' and you'll turn the heads of many a glamorous lady. But your regular everyday guy probably won't bat an eyelid. On the other hand, 'Get your DIY done free for a year' would probably do the trick. OK it's a bit of an obvious comparison, but you get the idea.
