Today on the Persuasion Play Podcast, episode 008…

I welcome a very special guest, Mr. Drayton Bird!


Drayton Bird is an old-school direct marketer and advertiser. He worked along side fellow greats such as Eugene Schwartz and David Ogilvy, who famously claimed that…

Drayton knew more about direct marketing than anyone else in the world!

High praise from David Ogilvy.

  • Dropping out of school because it wasn’t as fun as his parents’ pub!

  • What he learned during his 60-plus years in Advertising… and why he continues to write today!
  • The secrets to success in the service industry!
  • The difficulty of living under a false name!
