Drayton Bird is the Godfather of Direct mail advertising and marketing. Some say he was David Ogilvy’s Secret Advertising Weapon.
Drayton’s been writing for a living since he was 19. He’s just turned 85 in August.
There’s not a living person who can come close to his experience in direct response marketing and advertising copy.
In fact, Drayton worked with the man who is the main character in which the TV series . . . ‘Mad Men’ was created.
In 2003, the Chartered Institute of Marketing named Drayton Bird one of 50 living individuals who have shaped today’s marketing.
He’s worked with many of the world’s greatest brands including;
- American Express
- British Airways,
- Deutsche Post
- Procter & Gamble
- Visa and Volkswagen
And he’s sold everything from airbuses to Peppa Pig.
Ogilvy himself said:
“Drayton Bird knows more about direct marketing than anyone in the world.”
