Effective advertising

We believe that advertising should be measurable. So if you can’t work out whether it is helping, don’t do it!

To create successful ads (and to know what ‘success’ looks like) advertising campaigns need an objective. For example:

  • Explain the core benefit of your product or service (USP)
  • Introduce a new benefit or feature
  • Encourage a trial or visit
  • Adjust perceptions
  • Extend your reach within existing customer companies

Advertising needs to be repeated for success. Messages aren’t retained until we have heard them several times. Repetition, then a break, then more repetition has been shown to deliver the most effective results. This approach can be built into your ad campaign schedule.

Advertising needs to be repeated for success. That's right! Adverts work best when they're repeated.
