A Full-Page Ad is Twice As Good as a Half-Page Ad

ANSWER: FALSE! "Bigger is better" does not necessarily apply to advertising. Studies show that there is not a one-to-one relationship between ad size and response. Findings show that a 1/4-page ad is not noted only 25% as often, as might be expected, but 60% as often. A half-page ad is noted not 50% as frequently, but 70%. Advertisers will benefit from running, for example, a 1/4-page ad four times a month rather than a full-page ad only once a month.
Bottom-line? Frequency is more important than size.

In 180 Fast-Paced Minutes,
I'll Teach Your Chamber Members...

"What a tremendous program packed with strategies and tactics that really work. I recommend it unreservedly."

Nido Qubein, author of Nightingale-Conant's
"How to Be a Great Communicator"

Listen: This is not your average chamber of commerce event. It's a fast-paced, "educational roller coaster ride" that delivers more heavy-duty "How-To" content than most other business seminars in the country today.

Best of all, it's totally turn-key and has received excellent reviews from sponsors across the United States, who say...

"It's Not Just Informative... It's Also Entertaining"

That's because I don't stand still for more than a moment. I whisper, shout, talk to myself, throw up my arms and get very dramatic. All to create an educational experience that impacts and resonates throughout the audience much longer than the typical, dull business seminar.

"A must for anyone
seeking to persuade."

Roger Dawson, author of "Secrets of Power Negotiating"


It's better to show a product's package than to show it being used because it's simpler and less complicated.

ANSWER: FALSE! Showing your product being used lends the feeling of "action" to an otherwise motionless ad. Your job is install a "mental movie" in your prospects' heads. You want them to imagine using your product or service. Showing a boring box does NOT do this.

The 3-hour CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course gets rave reviews across the U.S. from business people in all industries. It teaches your audience how to DOUBLE... TRIPLE... QUADRUPLE their advertising results without spending a penny more.

"Good ideas presented in
an enthusiastic style."

Paul Edwards, co-author of "Getting
Business to Come to You"

Here's How It Works...

As a Chamber exec, you're busy. I understand that. That's why I've made this chamber of commerce event easy to host. In fact, everything runs like clockwork on this tried and true 12-week schedule:

I send you my Speaking Agreement for your approval.

You Receive my TURN-KEY PACK which Includes:

Powerful Cover Letter--Ready for your letterhead. Include it with your brochures for maximum response
Customized Press Releases--Approved by you & then sent by me to your local newspapers and radio stations for Free Publicity
Camera-Ready Flyer--For easy reproduction in your organization's newsletter
Hand-Out Pak Master--Ready to photocopy. Overflowing with ready-to-use information.
Customized Speaker Introduction & Closing written for your organization.
Sheets--To easily record those who attend
Copy of Speaking Agreement--For your files
I fax your approved press release to your list of local media for free publicity.
I call you to check on registrations and offer to assist you in any way I can.
(I'm with you every step of the way.)
Last minute check-in. I call you one last time before I hop aboard the jet to your city.


I arrive in your city 1 day before the seminar date. If I arrive during business hours, I'll call you to let you know I've arrived. (Most folks really appreciate this!) Next, I check out the seminar room and prearrange the furniture. After that, I'm ready for a big meal and a big sleep in preparation for our big day. (I'll probably ask you to suggest the name of a good local Italian restaurant. Carb-loading does wonders for me the day before the presentation!)
I begin setting up 2-1/2 hours prior to the seminar starting time. (For morning seminars, I'm up before the roosters!) I finalize the room arrangement and then set up my audio & video equipment and props.

Next, I distribute Rating Sheets for immediate post-seminar feedback. I tape down the projector wires for safety... prepare the Registration Table...and give you (or your assistant) a supply of name/admission badges to give to attendees as they come in.

Then I greet your Members as they arrive... shake hands... make everyone comfortable and happy... and then deliver one of the best darned advertising seminars they've ever experienced!

I clean up... return to my hotel room... freshen up... tour your city... patronize your shops... and celebrate a great presentation by finding a really good Mexican restaurant and eating enchiladas. I'll ask you to suggest some interesting places to visit. And since I easily get lost, I'll also ask you for a map.
1) I send you a compilation of the feedback your audience gave on the feedback sheets. 2) You send me an honest letter telling me you thought about my performance.

Captions under photographs are the least read copy in any ad.

ANSWER: FALSE! Captions -- even tiny ones -- are read up to 2x as often as body copy. People will often read the captions first, before reading a word of your ad's body copy. ALWAYS put captions under your photos. TIP: Since readership is so high, it's smart to put SELLING, rather than descriptive, captions under your photos.

This is NOT Your Average (Y-A-W-N!) Business Training

There's no sleeping in this presentation!
It's fast-paced. High energy. Interactive. Including over 130 color graphics ... audience participation... experiments in consumer psychology"... lots of real-life examples... packed with practical, nuts & bolts techniques your members can start using immediately.

Excellent Reasons to Host

1. Effective Advertising Is Vital to Business Success

LET'S FACE IT: No matter how great your product or service, if you can't communicate it effectively, you'll soon be out of business. In 180 "roller-coaster" minutes, The CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course teaches your audience more about how to create powerful ads, brochures, flyers, sales letters, e-mails and web sites than most of their competitors will know in their entire careers. GUARANTEED.

2. Business People Desperately Need More Education On This Important Subject

No matter how many seminars you offer on things such as taxes, employees, OSHA regulations, etc., if you don't teach your members how to build their business, all the other seminars mean very little. Fact is, most business people are disgusted with their advertising results, but they don't know what to do about it! This program tells them EXACTLY what to do... in a fun and entertaining way they'll never forget.

3. Helps Your Chamber Members Make & Save Money

IT'S A FACT: Most ads fail because advertisers continually break the rules of effective advertising. Without knowing the causes of an ad's poor results, your people will likely repeat the same mistakes over and over... throwing away good money after bad. Knowing ONCE AND FOR ALL what DOES and does NOT work BEFORE they place their ads can mean a significant boost in their results and bottom line.

4. It's Directly Related to Increasing Your Members' Bottom Line

This chamber of commerce event is entertaining, but the main thrust is to help your trainees grow their businesses.

5. It's a Big Time Saver for Business People

Most business people don't have the time to read dozens of books on the subject. This training is like the "Cliff's Notes" of advertising. It's designed especially for business people who want to learn the most important lessons in the shortest time possible.

6. It's a Super-High-Content Presentation

The CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course is extremely heavy in practical content, which means high value for participants. This reflects favorably on the Chambers that host and sponsor it.

7. It Has Very Broad Appeal & Demand

This training has received extremely positive reviews by participants in a wide variety of industries, including:

  Publishing   Funeral Homes
  Leasing Services   Jewelers
  Moving & Storage   Lumber Supply
  Charities   Carpet Supply
  Hospitals   Travel Agents
  Libraries   Fabric supply
  Card & Giftshops   Bridal Shops
  Advertising Agencies   Restaurants
  Hotels & Motels   Veterinary Clinics
  Public Utilities   Independent Consultants
  Independent Sales People   Home-Bases-Business
  Automobile Dealers   Entrepreneurs
  Computer Industry   Real Estate agencies
  Banks   AND MANY MORE...
  Temporary Help Services      

Why Not Just Use a Local Business Person for
Advertising Training?

8. It's More than Just Knowledge

As a professional trainer, Drew brings more than just information to the platform. He also brings your members a dynamic style and professional presentation skills that make the training not only informative, but entertaining and enjoyable as well. CHAMBERTI$ING is unlike any other training you have ever experienced. It cannot be compared to an off-the-cuff presentation by a non-professional presenter.

In fact, according to Association Management Magazine...

9. Out-of-Town Author & Expert = A Special Event

An out-of-town expert lends an air of excitement to a presentation. The result is often greater enthusiasm and participation among attendees, essential elements for a successful training.

10. Tested & Proven in Front of Live Audiences

The CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course is the result of years of research and development. It has been tested nationwide in front of live audiences and is continually being revised, updated and improved. It's a performance as much as a training.

11. This Topic is Extremely Popular Among Small to Mid-Sized Business People

Most small & mid-sized businesses do not use the services of ad agencies or similar professionals, but prepare their advertising (or direct the preparation of it) by themselves. They appreciate the opportunity to learn how to make their advertising more effective.

Rave Review from
Calgary, Alberta Canada...

12. No Crazy "Take-It-Or-Leave-It" Training Fees... and a Free-to-Your- Chamber Option

Many trainers demand a flat fee which says, in effect, "Take it or leave it." If the host cannot afford the fee, many people miss the benefits of the training. Drew's philosophy is different: He's bringing The CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course to as many people as possible and he's flexible with his hosting options. After all, what good is it for him to state a fee that's entirely out of your reach? The only reasonable way is to give you a choice of hosting options: a flat fee paid by your organization - OR-  a low ticket price paid by each attendee. This per-attendee option means the program can cost your Chamber nothing. To determine the number of attendees you'd need for a no-cost-to-your-Chamber training, simply answer the questions in the contact format the end of this page.

13. Length of Training Is Right

A 3-hour program is convenient for most participants. It's long enough for a thorough learning experience... and short enough so people can get back to business quickly.

When selling a product for men, it's best to show men, not women.

ANSWER: TRUE! Seems counter-intuitive, doesn't it? Fact is, men would rather see men in ads for men's products, and women, women. Psychologists say it's because it helps us imagine ourselves using the product and allows us to become that person momentarily. A woman reading an ad for a fitness center, for example, sees a photo of a lean, attractive woman working out. She identifies with this woman, and becomes lean and attractive herself. Interesting, isn't it?

14. Drew Provides Equipment & Materials FREE

This includes: Sign-In Sheets... Hand Out Pack Master Copy... Professional Visual Presentation... "Props" that keep your audience engaged... Post-Seminar Rating Sheets (So you know how your audience liked the training)... and more.

15. You Receive FREE Promotional Materials help attract maximum participation.

Drew does not solicit your members for advertising services of any kind. If they ask, he's happy to help, however he comes to train, not sell.

22. CHAMBERTI$ING Is Interactive and Engaging

Drew interacts with your participants throughout the workshop... calls them by name... involves them in "experiments in consumer psychology." It's a blast... and they love it!

23. Unlike Ordinary Seminars, CHAMBERTI$ING Is Fun and Entertaining

Drew's style is dynamic, upbeat, humorous and dramatic. Your members will be talking about the training long after it's over. Others, who couldn't attend, will be asking when you can repeat it.
(It's happened many times before.)

24. This Chamber of Commerce Event Is 100% Practical

The Chamber of Commerce CHAMBERTI$ING Crash Course focuses on usable ideas, not dumb jokes and boring stories. Your members will be equipped to put the information they learned into action the very next day. When the program is over, they will feel they've gotten more than their money's worth. They will be thankful to your Chamber for bringing them practical, worthwhile training.

25. Drew Does Not Sell Products During the Workshop

Unlike some other trainers, Drew uses his time for training only. Participants interested in Drew's products may purchase C.O.D. by checking a box on the back of the rating sheets. No hard-sell tactics are ever used and no money for products is ever collected or requested at the training.

26. 100% Money-Back Guarantee for Every Paying Attendee

If a participant is not 100% satisfied for any reason, Drew will personally refund the ticket price he or she paid for the seminar, via US Mail, if requested of him by the participant, within 7 days after the workshop, no questions asked. This guarantee appears in the workshop brochures. Drew stakes his international reputation on it.

"A galaxy of 5-star ideas.
Drew Eric Whitman is a genius."

Dottie Walters, author "Speak & Grow Rich"


Paying extra for color is a waste of money because it doesn't affect readership.

ANSWER: FALSE! The Journal of the Society of Newspaper Design conducted a study that asked readers to react to 3 page treatments: 1) FULL-COLOR 2) PAGES WITH SPOT COLOR, and 3) BLACK AND WHITE. Here's what they found:
Readers said the full-color page and the pages with spot color were more interesting and pleasant to read. B) Pages with color were more powerful, bolder, and more exciting. C) The full-color page was the most modern and easiest to read
The page with a spot of blue was reported as easier to read than the page with a spot of red. E) Readers said the black and white page was the most difficult to read and more weak, timid, and dull by contrast to the color pages. According to Starch Research, the use of color increases depth of readership by 60% over black and white-only ads... and 40% over two-color only ads. So splash on the color and reap the rewards!
