Your Advertising Checklist

When it comes to advertising, whether it is for a specific product, an event, or a company as a whole, the same principals will usually apply. Firstly you need to ensure you know the best places to advertise and then you need to ensure that you are doing that advertising in the most effective way.

Different mediums will be more effective (and more attainable) for different companies, and understanding the right medium for a specific brand or campaign is the first step to making sure that a campaign is a success. However, it is also worth remembering that even if a specific medium is extremely attractive and likely to be very effective, if your budget will not let you focus upon it in the best way, it may well be better to use a less costly avenue as using something such as large format printing to create a large number of attractive posters and boards may well be far more effective than just producing one or two adverts.

However, it is not just choosing the medium that is important. Whether you choose large format printing, banner stands or a televised campaign, there are many specific things you should look at in your approach to increase your chances of success.

Firstly ensure that the campaign is aimed at a specific audience. Target those who are most likely to be interested in what you are advertising – making something too general may seem like a good way to attract a larger audience, but it can often fail to really hit home with anyone, whilst being specific should help you hook a precise kind of clientele.

Whether you are creating banner stands or hi-tech 3D holograms, you will need to do some research, not just into the medium and product, but also into the market as a whole. On top of this, advertising should be imbued with a sense of urgency, as well as a concise appraisal of the benefits of such a product or event.
