Advertising Agencies Have To Adapt With New Media

Advertising agencies have dramatically changed over the last twenty years thanks to the Internet and online advertising. Most businesses realize the importance of getting online and using the hip new methods and processes associated with forms of Internet advertising.

Few could have imagined in the early 80s what role advertising agencies would take on today. The Internet has changed the way we live and do business. It has forever changed consumer habits. What was once the lifeblood of advertising, newspapers and magazines, is now on the decline and has evolved from direct response advertising to branding.

Advertising agencies have added such methods as search engine positioning, pay per click marketing and social media marketing to their arsenals. Not only do agencies develop video ads for television slots, they now create video ads for the internet and viral videos for YouTube.

Offline marketing has changed as well. Readership has dropped for many big newspapers and magazines. New services like transport ads have come into play. Even stationary billboards have gone high tech by playing full color video advertisements. There are more options today in offline advertising than ever before.

Advertising agencies have to create a larger variety of ads. They must design banner ads that are effective at getting clicks. They need to create videos that are accepted by social communities online that walk the fine line between advertising and entertainment.

Advertising agencies today have to be quick to adopt new trends since Internet media is constantly and rapidly changing. What works today may be ineffective next year.

Choosing the right advertising agency for your business will take a little work. You want to make sure you sign with a company that is on the cutting edge of adverting methods and not one that is stuck in the old methods of print media only.

It is more convenient for you if you sign with an ad agency that can handle your entire advertising campaign. They should be able to run PPC accounts, make YouTube videos and place print ads. It helps if they can design and create your ads for you. Having everything done by one company will help you stay organized and should save you money.

Look for an ad agency that has a strong reputation among its customers. View their portfolio of ads and go over their statistics. They should offer the ability to track and analyze the results you get from your ads as well.

Advertising costs must be cost effective no matter how you approach it. You need to be smart with your money and make sure the money you spend gets results in the form of a healthy return on your investment. That is why you need a strong agency that utilizes today’s latest advertising methods.

Effectiveness Of Brochure Printing In Advertising

Companies nowadays have a lot of ways to reach out to their target market especially with the continuous advancement of technology. Among all these options, one way that has been proven effective and used for a long time is brochure printing.

Before discussing this further, let us first define the word brochure. Brochures are also known as pamphlets or leaflets. It is a tool for advertisement where brief and important facts about the companys products or services are written. These informative materials are then distributed by mail, displayed on rack stands, or handed out personally by representatives to potential product end-users or consumers.

Brochure printing can be very effective because of the following reasons: Easy to read: In a fast-paced world that we are living in today, companies who need to advertise their product or service must relay their message in the easiest and simplest way possible, since some people no longer have the time to stop and divert their attention to things that they do not normally do, like, reading advertisements or write-ups that do not catch their attention. Especially if you are selling a new product, you need to at least have the opportunity to grab a little time of your prospects and gain their interest, the fastest way. Brochure printing can be a perfect way to attain this goal. Your reader can easily grasp the message that you want to convey, since the information written are kept short and simple.

Portable guide: When you are advertising, the main purpose of doing so is to introduce your product and to make it known to as many people as possible. Since brochures are handy, you can easily distribute them to the people strolling in malls, or the professionals walking along the busy streets. If your product or service catches their interest, they can readily pass it on, or lend it to, someone whom they want to share the information with. Also, brochures do not only contain the direct information regarding your product or service, you can also include your companys address, email address, and contact numbers. This can serve as an alternative for calling cards which a client can bring whenever they want to purchase your product or avail your services.

Access to those who do not own a ready internet connection: Although, in todays world, a lot of advertisements are posted on social networking sites or web pages, we need to consider that not everyone has the opportunity to readily access the internet in their homes. Especially if you are marketing products that can be used by people from all walks of life, i.e. personal necessities, you have a wider scope of buyers to cater. This is when hard copies or tangible materials like brochures step in. By giving out hard copies of advertisements, the company can also reach out not only to those who are computer-literate or internet savvy, but also to those computer-illiterate ones, or even those people who are temporarily or permanently internet-deprived.

The Disadvantages Of Subliminal Advertising

Due to the complexity of the human mind, it has various levels of consciousness: the state of dreaming, conscious-rational and lastly the subconscious level. This last level is one which is not able to function through logic or reasoning abilities, and cannot differentiate between what is real and what is fictional.

Subliminal messages sent into the subconscious mind gives it the foundation to grow the message into reality. It is a form of thought-controlling, as there is a link of communication between the subconscious and the conscious mind, allowing it to affect each other. Hence, there is much controversy surrounding the use of these subliminal messages, as hidden persuasive messages have been used to influence audiences. Such incidents are commonly found in commercials and advertising, and in rock music. There has been much criticism on the use of insidious subliminal messages to maximize revenue.

Subliminal messages used in advertising or subliminal advertising, are most of the time consisting of brief visual or audio messages that our brain does not consciously register what it has seen or heard. Most of the time, there is less than 25% chance that the message will be picked up by the conscious, and is used to provide stimulus for action.

Subliminal advertising does exist. In actual fact, very little marketing agencies endeavor to input such messages due to the powerful impact that they can place on the audience, which would lead to overwhelming bad press that would be received if the subliminal message was found out. This puts off any potential benefit that the subliminal advertising may bring.

According to an April 2006 issue of the New Scientist, research has proven that subliminal advertising messages do work, under the right conditions. The researchers also found that priming only works when the prime is goal-relevant. In plain English, this means youre potentially going to buy a product that quenches your thirst only if you were already thirsty anyway. Subliminal messages are therefore more effective in priming a target audience to choose one brand over another, rather than in recreating an real need for the product.

While it is has yet to be sufficiently proven that the brief subliminal messages can affect your behavior without you knowing, it is still arguable that subliminal advertising can be more effective than normal means of promotional communications which people are consciously aware of.
