If you’re not reading Seth Godin’s blog, you may want to make it a New Year’s Resolution to start!

He recently had a pithy blog post on improving copywriting using the slogan on the sign in a Peets’ Coffee store “Unlike Any Coffee You’ve Ever Tasted Before.”

He then goes through the steps to bring it to a truly great marketing offer:
