THICKE: This is Ed Thicke.
DULL: And Ted Dull.
THICKE: With a message from the Monolith Brick Company.
DULL: About strong, hard, rectangular…
THICKE: Monolith Bricks.
DULL: Ladies, Monolith Bricks are sturdy and reliable.
THICKE: And now, with Monolith’s new expanded line of products,
you can get them in your choice of two beautiful designer shapes: Wide or Tall.
DULL: Ed, I think the tall one is just a wide one standing on end.
SFX: CLUNK OF BRICK FALLING OVER ON ITS SIDE
THICKE: So it is. Well, I guess Monolith doesn’t offer all that much variety.
But aren’t there lots of great cosmetic and housekeeping uses for these hard, lifeless objects, Ted?
DULL: Could be, Ed. But we don’t really have to get into all that.
THICKE: I guess that’s true. Tell ‘em why, Ted.
DULL: You see, ladies, the Monolith Brick Company has just placed such an obese media buy
that it hardly matters what we say.
THICKE: We thought about just bluntly reading our marketing strategy at you—
DULL: But we don’t even have to do that, let alone capture your imagination or sell you on the benefits,
if there are any, of Monolith Bricks.
THICKE: No, all we have to do is keep hitting you with these boring brick commercials night and day
till you stagger off and buy some.
DULL: And don’t even think about switching stations.
THICKE: No, we’re on every station right now.
DULL: And will be again every five minutes till we reach our sales goals.
THICKE: So you see, ladies, it’s sort of a blackmail situation.
DULL: And it’s truly in your own best interests to think up your own uses for Monolith Bricks.
THICKE: We know you don’t want to hear from us.
DULL: And we don’t particularly like to talk to you.
THICKE: So what it really comes down to is—
DULL: Buy us or we’ll bore you.
THICKE: Say, that’d make a sell tagline, Ted.
DULL: We don’t need one, Ed.

I just learned from eHow that writing 30-second radio ad scripts is “deceptively easy.”
Well, I guess it is in the same way that attaining everlasting world peace is deceptively easy…
How to attain world peace:
Simply gather every individual on the planet into a comfy room and convince everyone to see things through everyone else’s eyes. A group hug seals the deal forever.
How to create 30-second radio ad scripts:
Just come up with a brilliant, compelling concept that dramatically conveys the listener’s problem and how the advertiser’s product solves it.
After that, all you have to do is animate your revelation with clever dialogue after you take a few minutes to develop a keen sense of humor and some verbal wit. Then start typing the 60 or so words that will naturally flow out of you.
Now ehow easy was that? Writing great radio ad scripts may be a little more complicated than attaining everlasting world peace, but still, a piece of cake.
As a freelance copywriter, I only wish I’d realized all this sooner. I might have chosen an alternative career path, perhaps more in the direction of Best World Leader Ever.
Get the rest of the easy details here and plug this approach into every goal in your life…
Hey you! Wanna discover the incredibly simple secret to writing a script for a 30-second radio spot? What?! You’re asking me, “Why should I want to write effective scripts for 30-second radio spots?” Many consider 30-second radio spots the bread and butter of radio advertising. Most radio ad scripts play for 30 seconds. Longer ads lose the listener’s attention (or cause her to change the dial). Shorter ads don’t have the time to accomplish anything other than brand-name recognition. If you can write an effective script for a 30-second radio spot, advertisers, producers and businesses will come knocking at your creative door.
Read this article and you will uncover the deceptively easy and popular method to writing successful 30-second radio ad scripts. What is it? Simple, you just tell a story in 23 seconds. Here’s how…
