How does advertising work

How does advertising work?


What do we know about advertising effectiveness

What do we know about Advertising Effectiveness?

  • “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted;

  • the trouble is I don't know which half. “

    • John Wanamaker,

    • US department store merchant (1838 - 1922)


What do we need now and in the future to measure advertising success

“The only purpose of advertising is to sell.

It has no other justification worth mentioning.”

Ray Rubicam

1893-1978


What do we need now and in the future to measure advertising success

“Anybody in advertising who doesn’t say his purpose is to sell that

piece of merchandise is a phoney.”

Bill Bernbach

1911-1982


What do we need now and in the future to measure advertising success

“I have seen one mail-order advertisement actually sell, not twice as much, not three times as much, but 19 ½ times as much merchandise as another ad for the same product.

Both advertisements occupied the same space.

Both were run in the same publication.

Both had photographic illustrations.

Both had carefully written copy.

The difference was that one used the right appeal and the other used the wrong appeal”

(John Caples, Tested Advertising Methods, 1931)


Short term or long term

Short-term or Long-term?

  • “Andrew Ehrenberg has derived from these models of buyer behaviour (NBD/LSD and Dirichlet) a view on advertising for established brands. It mostly serves to publicise the advertised brand, but seldom seems to persuade. Promotions have only a short-term effect , and do not affect a brand's subsequent sales or brand loyalty. The extra buyers during the promotion have been seen almost all to have bought it before the promotion rather than being the hoped for new buyers”

  • And, advertising normally DOESN’T have much effect on short-term sales

  • It seems to protect existing loyalty and repeat purchase through LONG-TERM effects

  • . . . . . and how do we measure the ABSENCE of change?


How does advertising work1

How does advertising work?

  • Advertising has the objective of increasing sales

  • Or not (Road Safety, Health, Fire Prevention, Programme trailers, Nutrition Advice, etc.)

  • Sales when?

  • Different ads work with different levels of success

    • Work in different ways

    • Work in the same way but better or worse


How does advertising work2

How does advertising work?

  • Er, we don’t know

  • It seems pretty certain that different campaigns work in different ways

  • It seems pretty certain that different ads within campaigns work with varying success – and sometimes work in different ways

  • It seems pretty certain that long-term effects greatly outweigh short-term effects (N.B. This is normally not true for brand launches and even less true for category launches)


How is advertising effectiveness measured

How is advertising effectiveness measured?


The problem with evaluating ads effectiveness

The problem with evaluating ads’ effectiveness

  • “Its a good campaign, if sales go up”

  • “Its a bad campaign, if sales go down”

  • “Unfortunately, neither of these statements is always true. They are very often false”(Rosser Reeves, Reality in Advertising, 1961)


The problem with evaluating ads effectiveness1

The problem with evaluating ads’ effectiveness

“Recently a group of marketing men, almost idly, at a

luncheon table, listed thirty-seven factors, any or all of

which could cause the total sales of a brand to move up

or down.

Advertising was only one of these.

The product may be wrong. Price may be at fault.

Distribution may be poor. The sales force may not be

adequate. Budget may be too low. A better product may

be sweeping the market. A competitor may be outwitting

you with strong deals.

And when a wheel has many spokes, who can say which

spoke is supporting the wheel?”

Rosser Reeves


Advertising effectiveness measurement the last 30 shameful years

Advertising Effectiveness Measurement – The Last 30 Shameful Years

  • Broadly, the methods for judging advertising success or failure are the same now as they were 30 years ago – only worse (despite around $10 trillion at 2000 prices being spent on advertising in mainstream media, globally, over this period)

    • Sales (but usually short-term)

    • Pre- and Post- Awareness, Usage and Attitude

    • Tracking (more prevalent now)

    • Econometric Modeling (but almost always based on short-term sales response – sometimes with some lag effects) (more prevalent now)

    • Etc


Problems with modeling

Problems with Modeling

  • Multivariate statistical techniques are being used more and more frequently to evaluate advertising effectiveness (and media mix, regional upweights, etc)

    • Criterion variable tends to be short-term sales – thus ignoring the main, long-term, contribution made by advertising

    • The statistical tools tend to be more robust than the data – like using a road drill for dentistry

    • The tools find relationships within the data – but this merely DESCRIBES the data – it does not necessarily prove CAUSALITY

So what does this mean for media measurement

So what does this mean for media measurement?

  • We don’t know how advertising works

  • We do know that different campaigns and even different ads within a campaign work in different ways

  • We don’t know how to measure its effectiveness

  • Thus, media measurement (for advertisers) should restrict itself to the measurement of EXPOSURE (as now) rather than other factors (engagement?)

  • Even exposure is going to be harder to measure – or it will present different challenges – in the changing media landscape

“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

We all know what happened

We all know what happened…

  • TV viewing constant or growing

  • Print still read avidly

  • Cinema attendances increase

  • Despite growth of DVD’s and PVR’s plenty of 30” ads

It’s the people spinning the globe.

Not the technology.

Retail consolidation new media force

Retail consolidation – new media force

  • With impressive retail consolidation comes a newly viable and buyable media phenomena – in-store media

  • Retailers are now so big that their in-store media can have larger daily reach than TV shows and stations, or press and radio packages

  • These media will become increasingly important as retailers continue to consolidate, mass media fragments, and usage occasions change to more impulse and channel specific.

Media ownership development

Media ownership development

1983:

  • 50 corporations “dominated” mass media

  • $340 million biggest merger

    2000:

  • Number dominating companies down to six

  • AOL & Time Warner merger $350 billion – a thousand times larger!


One company endless possibilities

Editorial coverage in the company’s Time and People magazines, by reviews on CNN and by advertising on the AOL internet service (in fact the company, which plans and buys most of its media in-house, is itself one of America’s largest advertisers).

Some tentative conclusions

Some, Tentative, Conclusions

  • Media research should restrict itself to determining levels of exposure for advertising

  • With increasing amounts of media transmitted via the internet and via different platforms, should we maintain current research methodologies? Are peoplemeters dead?

  • The reports of the death of TV have been greatly exaggerated.

  • The store is becoming a significant medium

  • Development of multi-channel communication plans – from multi-channel media owners – and the importance of holistic research for planning and evaluation

  • Project Apollo may finally provide a plausible explanation of advertising effects?

  • The consumer has never been easier to reach but never harder to connect or involve – and advertising has never been less involving

  • TV advertising has reduced power – owing to clutter – or poor creative?
