Agency secrets
Agency “secrets”

  • Agencies also have some “secrets” which they use while preparing advertising campaigns to help sell their products.


Theme
Theme

  • First, the agency decides on a theme for the campaign. The theme is the main message of the ad.

  • “Chevy trucks are built to last.”

  • Allstate – “Mayhem is coming.”

  • The theme gets attention, gets the message across quickly and simply, and often provides a catchy slogan.


Slogan
Slogan

  • The slogan is often the only thing that the audience remembers when the ad is over.

  • The slogan must be simple, contain the product’s name, and contain only one important message.

  • “Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger.”

  • “Finger-lickin’ good.”

  • “Taste the Rainbow.”


Sex appeal
Sex Appeal

  • The desire to attract the opposite sex has built industries such as Revlon, Ralph Lauren, Max Factor, Clairol, etc.

  • Hundreds of other products from cars to soft drinks also use sex appeal to help sell their products.


Endorsements
Endorsements

  • Endorsements - person’s approval of a product. The person states that the product is good and should be bought and used.

  • If Chuck Norris or Peyton Manning say that a product is the best, then it must be so.

  • Famous athletes and movie stars are paid to tell the public which car, suit, or soft drink to buy.


Guarantees and special offers
Guarantees and special offers

  • People feel safer or believe they are getting a better value for their money.

  • Special offers, coupons, and free samples give the customer the feeling that he is getting something extra for his money.

  • Important when many similar products are on the market and the buyer must choose only one.


Statistics and polls

  • TV commercials show men dressed in white coats talking about recent surveys where nine out of ten doctors preferred Brand X aspirin.


Humor children and animals
Humor, children, and animals

  • Most people love to laugh and to look at pretty little girls, cute boys, and frisky animals.

  • Therefore, ads are full of clever remarks, humorous happenings, and all kinds of kids and animals.


Promises
Promises

  • Advertisers promise loss of weight, more sex appeal, and eternal youth.

  • Product names such as Burger King and Dairy Queen all help make the product strong, large, and important.


Color
Color

  • The psychology of color is a relatively new science that has changed many ideas about advertising.

  • Among the things that agencies have learned is that color advertising sells most products much better than black and white advertising.

  • Studies show that cool colors such as greens and blues create calm, easy feelings that help sell products like aftershaves, and perfume.

  • Warm colors like reds, oranges, and yellows help sell items like sports cars.
