    3. The Advertising Agency Advertising agencies work jointly with business clients to develop advertising campaigns. An advertising campaign involves the creation and coordination of a series of advertisements (both broadcast and print) around a particular theme

    5. Developing Print Advertisements Print ads are very important to most campaigns. They usually contain four key elements Headline Copy Illustrations Signature Each element enhances the overall theme of a product promotion

    6. Headline The headline is the saying that gets the readers attention, arouses their interest by providing a benefit, and leads them to read the rest of the ad. More than 80% of the people who look at a print ad just read the headlines. A headline provides a benefit to the reader

    12. Writing Effective Headlines Most are brief many people cannot take in more than seven words at a time. Every headline should have a single focus or main idea. Techniques you can use when writing headlines: Alliteration (repeating initial consonant sounds) -- Win with Wireless (Samsung) Paradox (a seeming contradiction that could be true) Its an environmental movement all by itself. (Honda Insight) Rhyme Bounty. The Quicker Picker-Upper Pun ( a humorous use of a word that suggests two or more of its meanings or the meaning of another work similar in sound --Beauty and the Beef (Ball Park Franks) Play on Words For Soft Babies and Baby Soft Hands

    15. Copy The copy is the selling message in a written advertisement. It expands on the information in the headline or the product shown in the illustration. It should be simple and direct It should appeal to the senses Tell the who, what, when, why, where, and how of your product Key words used in copy, such as compare, introducing, now, price, save, easy, and new, establish immediate contact with the reader. It should provide a call to action to shoppers

    18. Illustration The photograph or drawing used in a print advertisement. Its primary function is to attract attention It should transmit a total message that would be hard to communicate just with words. Illustrations may show the product, how the product works, and its features.

    21. Signature No advertisement is complete without naming its sponsor. The signature, or logotype (logo), is the distinctive identification symbol for a business. Well-designed signatures get instant recognition for a business.
