Structure and techniques of television adverts
In terms of structure and techniques, our advert falls into the following criteria;
The advert we have made is targeted at the working class, people who have to work and would do food shopping.The Psychographic profile groups are as follows:
In regard to psychographic profile groups, my target audience would be ‘MAINSTREAMERS SEEK SECURITY’, ‘EXPLORERS SEEKS DISCOVERY’ & ‘STRUGGLERS SEEKS ESCAPE’.
‘MAINSTREAMER, SEEKS SECURITY’ because Doritos are a family product, they are aimed at everyone from all walks of life, even children so they will therefore appeal to the masses.
‘EXPLORER, SEEKS DISCOVERY’ because in regard to product advertising, for a while their adverts have been quite exciting. They tend to do adverts with a lot of humour and they like to include action, this can include stunts like a man jumping into a window or things along those kinds of lines.
‘STRUGGLER, SEEKS ESCAPE’ because when looking at the product from a health point of view you have to consider that this product isn’t really that healthy and would probably fall under the junk food category and so this would mean that it would appeal to people who would fall under this specific profile group.
In regard to a demographic profile our product advert would mainly be targeted at working class males aged between 18-40 but also women too. You can also refer to this as people who would fall under the C1, C2, D and E social grade.
When working on an advert and planning it, it is important to consider the regulations set by the ASA so that any messages, hidden or not are acceptable to show to the general public and especially if the advert is aired before the watershed.
First of all our advert is on fairly safe grounds, because It has a very simple theme involving sharing, and we knew that the theme was a safe one with no concerns, but it is not always this way. Often documentary style or humorous adverts with hidden themes have to reconsider ideas due to the ASA because they would cause offense to viewers. Companies have to think a lot before they release any advert anyway because if the advert is taken down for breaking the codes, it will cost a lot to remake and air again.
Graphical adverts can sometimes be taken down for being over graphic, such as anti smoking adverts or anti drinking adverts. As much as those types of adverts must be graphic to scare people, they cannot be horrifically 18+ scary. Especially before the watershed, when children are watching television as well as over 18s.
Using research on BARB we have determined that for our Doritos advert we need to advertise on a selection of channels all roughly after the watershed. The specificity of the channels is determined by the target audience (of which ours is 16 to 25s)
Channel4, channel 5, 5 USA, Dave, E4, Film4, Pick TV, Really, Sky Living; These channels have been picked partly because of the style of the programs they air, (comedy programs and programs aimed at 16 to 25s) this means that the audience is going to be captured easily by the advert.
The psychographics are also very important when making an advert because they come before choosing anything audience related, to help aim the advert better. Obviously our advert is aimed at 16 to 25s but our psychographic will help us determine WHICH 16 to 25s we want.
-likes listening to music when out and about
-work weekdays/part time
-loves watching TV and films
-listens to the radio
-love going to the cinema
So as you can see psychographics are a good way to find out what the average Doritos buyer will be doing on a day to day basis in their lives and what they enjoy doing in their spare time, these can be achieved through surveys, which can be created on surveymonkey.com to gather information on clients, which is something we did before our advert was made, in order for us to determine the best profiles for our potential clients, using statistics and percentages.
Daily reach of viewers for the chosen channels
