Sensational, attractive, eye catching, informative, wild, comical, and serious are some of the words used to describe advertising. Advertising is a method of communication that lets customers see the product, develop an impression of the product and motivates them to purchase the product. A strong advertisement can bring in dollars and increase the return on investment. There are a number of key components to strong advertisements.
Marketing is more required in business today than at any point in the past. With the advent of online marketing competition has grown to such a frenzy that getting a presence in the marketplace can be very difficult. With the proper placement and eye-catching ads businesses can outperform the market average. The goal of any business is to increase profits and this is most easily done by simple changes in advertisement.
One of the first things a business owner should be aware of is that marketing is most of their business. Without proper marketing you really don’t have a business because you don’t have high paying customers. When the economy gets tough business owners should get tough on their marketing and draw in newer and more lucrative clients.
Business owners could choose between online and print marketing. Sometimes a combination of the both would be best. Local print advertising is great for drawing in local customers that live within a certain radius. Online advertising works best with e-commerce when the locality of the customer is not very important. More and more local customers are using online searches to find local businesses.
Advertisements should be catchy and easy to understand. Simplicity is the best method when it comes to drawing in customers. A simple picture or slogan may give the customer much of what they need to know in order to attract their interest. For example, a classy looking man in a nice sweater standing on some country road may appeal to professional males and prompt them to consider your clothing line. Each advertisement should include a picture, a slogan, and a place they can obtain the product.
The message should also be simple and motivating. It should be very clear and easy to understand in language that is easily readable to the most amounts of people. Something like, “It tingles your taste buds!” might work great. It is easy to understand has taps into a feeling or sense. The message and the image should support each other.
Advertising displays should also have simple and clear directions for customers to purchase the product. These simple and clear directions should include phrases that a sense of urgency. For example, “limited time offer”, “purchase now while supplies last”, and “call today for discount” are all acceptable. The statement should be simple, concise, clear and action driven. Many businesses simply put an address, website, or phone number with the message.
Business is about marketing and without the development of strong marketing advertisements the right kind of customer is not going to be drawn in to make purchases. The return on investment related to the dollar amount spent per the purchase can also be impacted by the strength of the message. As you develop your marketing products make sure you make sure your message builds enthusiasm, is simple, eye catching and give appropriate direction.
