INTRODUCTION
The main marketing communications applications are advertising, publicity, sales promotion, and personal
selling
ADVERTISING
Advertising expenditures as a proportion of sales vary among industries and companies
Advertisers depend on research to understand the markets that they are attempting to reach
Understanding consumer behaviour has become an important aspect of advertising strategy
Increased knowledge of such factors as lifestyle and personal attitudes has led to improved advertising
decisions
Advertising provides an efficient, inexpensive, and fast method of reaching consumers
The Advertising Campaign: Integrated Marketing Communications
A company that develops a marketing communications strategy often does not restrict its plan to
advertising alone
The elements of the communications mix are blended to provide maximum consumer impact
Creating an Advertisement
A major step in the advertising process is developing and preparing an advertisement
oThe advertisement should flow logically from this carefully excited strategy process
Advertisements should accomplish the following
oGain attention and interest
oInform or persuade
oEventually lead to a buying action
Stimulating buying action is difficult, since an advertisement cannot close a sale
Too many advertisers fail to suggest how receivers of the message can buy the product if they so desire
Categories of Advertisements
Product advertising is nonpersonal selling of a particular good or service
Institutional advertising is promoting a concept, idea, or philosophy, or the goodwill of an industry,
company, or organization
Informative Product Advertising
Informative product advertising is advertising that seeks to develop demand through presenting factual
information on the attributes of a product or service
oTends to be used in promoting new products
oOften seen in introductory stages of the product life cycle
Persuasive Product Advertising
Persuasive Product Advertising is advertising that emphasizing using words or images to try to create an
image for a product and to influence attitudes about it
oContains little objective information
oGenerally used in the growth and maturity stages of the product life cycle
Reminder-Oriented Product Advertising
www.notesolution.com
Reminder-Oriented Advertising is advertising whose goal is to reinforce previous promotional activity by
keeping the product or service name in front of the public
oUsed in the maturity and decline phases of the product life cycle
Retail Advertising
Retail advertising is the advertising done by stores that sell goods or services directly to consumers
oAccounts for a sizable portion of total advertising expenditure
Cooperative advertising is the sharing of advertising costs between the retailer and the manufacturer
oBenefits both retailer and manufacturer
Retailer secures additional advertising that it would not otherwise have
Manufacturers benefit from retailers sharing advertising costs
Institutional Advertising
Seeks to increase public knowledge of a concept, idea, philosophy, industry, or company
Techniques for Delivering Advertising Messages
Structure
Since readers tend to skim advertising, a number of subheadings that summarize the entire message are
usually an advantage
oBold headlines, colour, sound effects, loud sound during a television commercial and unusual
images
Use of Humour, Sex, and Fear
Humour must not detract from the central message the advertiser wishes to deliver
Many attempts at humour in advertising are not that funny
Sexual images are not helpful to gain attention
Society has become resistant to advertisers who seem to be exploiting people in their advertising
As erotic content increases, the probability of people correctly recalling the associated brand decreases
Advertisements sometimes appeal to peoples fear of social stigma in their ads for deodorants, breath
sweeteners, and dandruff treatments
Research has shown that fear appeals can be effective unless the appeal is so strong that individuals
psychologically repress the message because it disturbs them too much
Comparative Advertising
Comparative Advertising is advertising that makes direct promotional comparisons with competitive
brands
oBest employed by firms that do not lead the market
Many advertisers are now choosing to compare their products directly with those of competitors
The comparison can sometimes take the form of an attack on the competition
Marketers who contemplate using comparative advertising should ensure that they can prove their claims,
because such advertising has the potential of producing lawsuits
Using Celebrities to Promote the Company and Its Products
Celebrity Marketing is having celebrities lend their name and influence to the promotion of a product
www.notesolution.com
oCompanies believe this is worth the cost of paying the celebrity for his or her endorsement of the
product
oMarketers feel that there will be a positive association between the public acceptance of the
celebrity and the acceptance of their product
oIf the celebrity falls out of favour, the company has to try to quickly dissociate itself from that
person
Role Model Marketing is a marketing technique that associates a product with the positive perception of a
type of individual or a role
oThe role model association for NAYA pure water is with 150 healthy looking lifeguards
Buzz marketing is giving a significant person in a social system a product to use in the hope that others
will see and want to buy the product
Media Selection
If you want to advertise to consumers who prefer vinyl records over CDs, the proper approach would be
find an advertising medium that is more focused on that group
Research should identify the target market, determine its size and characteristics, and then match the target
with the audience and effectiveness of the available media
The objective is to achieve adequate media coverage without advertising beyond the identifiable limits of
the potential market
Alternative costs are compared to determine the best possible media purchase
Television
Largest advertising medium
A nationalspot refers to non-network broadcasting used by a general advertiser
Television advertising offers the following advantages
oImpact
oMass coverage
oRepetition
oFlexibility
oPrestige
Television advertising offers the following disadvantages
oTemporary nature of the message
oHigh costs
oHigh mortality rate for commercials
oSome evidence of public distrust
oLack of selectivity
Newspapers
Advantages
oFlexibility
oCommunity prestige
oIntense coverage
oReader control of exposure to the advertising message
