软销售和硬文章之间看上去很像,但它们之间微妙的区别是,文章要有立场,而推销重在利益,

Soft sales ads and hard core advertisements look a lot alike, but the subtle difference between them is that the advertisement needs to have a position and the soft promotion focuses on the benefits...
比如一个号翻脸比翻书还快,昨天才告诉你我已经不想取悦任何人明天宣称懂生活的人,会用心经营自己的朋友
bǐrú yī ge hào fānliǎn bǐ fān shū hái kuài ,zuótiān cái gàosu nǐ wǒ yǐjīng bùxiǎng qǔyuè rènhérèn míngtiān xuānchēng dǒng shēnghuó de rén ,huì yòngxīn jīngyíng zìjǐ de péngyou
Such as a number turning faster than a book, and only telling you yesterday that "I don't want to please anyone who "declares tomorrow" to understand life, will manage his own circle of friends with his heart."
一切软文的感染力其实都是有套路的,含蓄型的会用桀骜不逊或放浪不羁的态度来获取精神优越和自信,从而引领你的消费方向

The influential power of all soft-sell promotions is a set up, and the subtle ones will use rakish or unrestrained drives to gain a superior and self-confident spirit, and thus “influence your consumption direction”.
直白型的会赤裸裸地用社会地位和阶层感来诱惑,就如同英国男装业的领头羊波尔顿服装公司宣称,他们家西装带给所有男人一种尊严
zhíbái xíng de huì chìluǒluǒ de yòng shèhuì dìwèi hé jiēcéng gǎn lái yòuhuò ,jiù rútóng Yīngguó nánzhuāng yè de lǐngtóuyáng bōěrdùn fúzhuāng gōngsī xuānchēng ,tāmen jiā xīzhuāng dàigěi suǒyǒu nánrén yīzhǒng zūnyán
The straightforward type sedulously tempts by using social status and a sense of class, just as the British men's wear industry leader, Bolton Fashion Co. Ltd., claims that their men’s fashion line brings all men a measure of dignity.
