Review for Test # 3 1. Understand the requirements for writing ad copy for webpages; the special challenges that reading off a computer screen creates for copywriters. ● Writing ad copy on webpages: ○ Use fragments, not complete grammatical sentences; people only scan web ads and don’t read thoroughly ○ Ads should be interactive (i.e., clickable) ○ Write in objective rather than persuasive/promotional language ○ Use scannable text ● Challenges of reading off computer screen ○ The fovea the visual center of the retina, which determines how we read fonts limits field of vision on webpages ○ Print is naturally easier to read than computer screens; this may change over time as humans adapt to ubiquitous technology, but for now, copywriters have to consider fonts carefully 2. What are the positive attributes of advertising on the Web? The negative attributes? ● Positives: ○ Easier to target customers b/c of software that integrates devices into a single user profile ○ Allows communication b/w company and customers ● Negatives: ○ Interactive marketing in general: ■ Many people want to visit store, not online or 1800 venue ● Smart Cars suffered for selling online only b/c people couldn’t test drive vehicles; company eventually reverted to BMW formula and set up showrooms ● Perfumes also hard to sell without sampling ■ A product not affiliated with a store or ad venue may suffer from not being associated with prestige of venue ■ Clutter, including popups ■ Violation of privacy, with cookiederived marketing data sold to other businesses ○ Google Ads: ■ Web ads are not memorable; they rely on interactivity ■ Videos that start on their own can annoy users ■ Media planner often has little control over where AdSense ads run ads could end up on porn site, for example ■ Internet is full of bots that act as fraudulent ad counters ■ There is no software that limits AdSense when premium sites are filled 3. When you produce ads for radio and TV, what are some things to keep in mind? ● Radio: ○ Make big idea clear ○ Mention the product’s name early and often ○ Take time to set scene, establish premise ○ Use familiar sound effects ○ Paint pictures with words ○ Make every word count ○ Be outrageous ● TV: ○ Words should enhance/highlight pictures ■ Don’t let audio & visual elements clash, as they do in the giraffe ad ○ Make visual demonstrations of product dramatic, but don’t deceive audience with exaggerated visual effects ○ Keep it simple 4. Know the difference between advertising and sales promotion…the 60/40 rule. ● Advertising: introducing product, developing loyal following (i.e., branding) ● Sales promotion: a marketing technique that gives consumers incentives to buy (discounts, prizes, coupons); induces nonpatrons to begin patronizing product ● The 60/40 rule refers to the ratio between spending on advertising and spending on sales promotion ○ Historically, spending on advertising has been greater, but in modern times, the trend has reversed 5. What happens when you, for instance, put 80% of a client’s money into sales promotion and only 20% in advertising? What about 80% in advertising and 20% in sales promotion? ● Too much sales promo + not enough advertising = loss of revenue and damage to brand name ● Too much advertising + not enough sales promo = insufficient volume buying 6. What is brand equity? ● Brand equity is the principle that a wellknown brand name with a good reputation will generate more money for a product. 7. Ad campaigns’ costs can easily get out of control. What’s the principal reason? ● Lack of planning (e.g., KState sports screwup) ○ Factors that increase expenses include production luxuries, overtime, special equipment, and issues with executives 8. What is an increasingly big problem facing advertisers in traditional media such as TV, radio, and in print venues? ● Analogical media lack twoway communication with consumers 9. What are AdWords, AdSense, buttons, banners, rich mail, interstitials? ● AdWords: short textbased ads with links to advertisers’ webpages; found on results page of a Google search and are based on keywords from that query ● AdSense: found on right side of a webpage; websites agree to fill certain amount of space for ads, and targeted ads appear in that space when page loads ● Buttons: small icons that take clicker to the advertiser’s website ● Banners: image ads across top of webpages ● Rich mail: emails that have video or open to advertiser’s website ● Interstitials: also known as popups, these interrupt navigation through a website to an ad (and are widely considered to be nuisances, especially on mobile devices) 10. What do cookies do? What are they? ● Cookies are small pieces of text data created by a website and stored in a user’s web browser ● Cookies determine RFM formula (recency, frequency, money)
