Why 50 Words?
Dr. Seuss was challenged by his publisher, Bennett Cerf, to see if he could write a children's book with a vocabulary of less than 50 words so first-graders and even kindergarteners could learn to read it themselves. He did it with 50 words and, in fact, 49 of them are monosyllabic. The result: Green Eggs and Ham, first published in 1960 and still one of the best—selling and most memorable children’s books around.
Their philosophy – keep it simple – fits us perfectly, and so we've adopted it for our name. And because 50 Words makes your marketing planning, execution and assessment simple, your business will succeed long—term and has the potential to become one of the most memorable around.
