Examples of advertising products can be found anywhere and can take on a wide variety of forms, including memorable jingles, witty slogans, and creative displays on public transportation vehicles.
According to Yankelovich, a company that specializes in market research, the average person was subjected to as many as 5,000 advertisements per day in 2007. It is anticipated that this number will range from 6,000 to 10,000 advertisements each day in 2021.
But given how much noise there is and how much competition there is, how does one go about developing an advertising campaign that is both effective and creative?
An advertisement is defined as a notice or announcement that is published in a public medium to promote a good, service, or event. This definition comes from Oxford Languages. However, this isn't the only definition of advertising that can be found.
In 1975, Jeremy Bullmore of the Advertising Association of the United Kingdom came up with a definition of advertising that stated it to be any communication that is paid for with the intention to inform and/or influence. Later, he revised this to include advertisements that were not paid for.
These definitions are fairly imprecise because it is difficult to define advertisements in any great detail due to the wide variety of mediums that advertisements can appear in.
For instance, a creative online advertising campaign on Facebook or Instagram is very different from an advertisement that is printed on a bench in a public park.
When it comes to marketing, determining the goals of your advertising is essential, and this is true regardless of the manner in which you choose to carry out your advertising campaigns.
In the following paragraphs, we are going to discuss the significance of advertising as well as the different types of advertising. We will also provide a number of successful advertisements as examples that you can use to generate ideas for your own advertisements.
Establishing the necessity of the advertisements is the initial step in the implementation of any marketing strategy. Are you getting the word out about a fantastic new product, or are you working on getting your fledgling business off the ground? Do you have a very important message to relay, or maybe you need to extend an apology to someone?
When it comes to marketing, there are a wide variety of factors that may contribute to a company's desire for a successful advertising campaign; however, these factors can typically be grouped into the following five categories:
Within the target market, increasing awareness and exposure can be accomplished through the use of an informational advertising campaign.
Informing people about a new product, a change in your business practices, unique features or services, or even just letting customers know that you exist in the first place are all examples of effective customer communication.
The majority of people are under the impression that the primary purpose of advertising is to persuade people to purchase a product.
Even though this is not the only goal, it is without a doubt one of the most important aspects of any advertising campaign.
Having said that, the aim of the persuasion might not simply be to get you to make a purchase. Some businesses may use advertising to rectify an injustice or to encourage customers to reconsider their preconceived notions regarding the company's brand.
Reminding customers of the vision of your company through advertising can also be an effective and valuable strategy. A strong marketing strategy will not only ensure that you are not easily forgotten (I occasionally still hum Dumb Ways to Die), but it will also help with marketing through word of mouth.
On occasion, advertising can also serve the purpose of setting things right or providing a clarification.
One of the best illustrations of this was the catastrophe that occurred in 2018 when KFC ran out of chicken in the United Kingdom.
KFC took the initiative to apologize by purchasing a stand-alone print advertisement that depicted an empty bucket with the letters rearranged to read FCK.
This witty and humorous advertisement was the company's attempt to make amends for the error, and it certainly won't be forgotten so quickly!
When it comes to motivating a target audience to feel a certain way about your brand, a creative product advertisement can go a long way toward accomplishing this goal. A successful advertising campaign is beneficial to the company as well as to the individual customer.
The following are the primary advantages enjoyed by the customer:
A successful advertising campaign has the potential to do the following for the advertiser:
You are able to do it as well.
Imagine a piece of marketing for a product that you've seen in the past. There is a good chance that you are recalling a recent commercial that you watched on television or perhaps a print advertisement that you read in your local newspaper, right?
Although these are some good examples, advertisements for products can take a wide variety of forms—many of which you probably aren't even aware of.
In the year 2000 BC, the Egyptians carved public notices into steel, which is the earliest known example of advertising. However, the first print advertisement in the sense that we are familiar with it was created in England in 1472 to promote the sale of a prayer book.
This kind of advertising can be found virtually anywhere we look, including in your local newspaper, magazine brochures, flyers, posters, and so on.
The terms "broadcast advertising" and "radio advertising" are commonly used interchangeably; however, in this day and age, it's highly unlikely that you'll come across a television commercial that isn't also widely accessible on the internet!
This type of advertising is typically accompanied by a memorable jingle or slogan that helps to make the ad more interesting and memorable to the target audience.
The Egyptians, around the year 2000 B.C., are credited with inventing the first form of outdoor advertising, although we might think of it in a slightly different way today.
Billboards, bus stops, advertisements placed on park benches, and even creative bus advertisements or wraps for other vehicles are all examples of outdoor advertising options.
At one point in time, the term "digital advertising" could have been easily defined as any advertisement that appeared on the internet or a digital device.
Online digital advertising, on the other hand, is probably the most important medium for marketers to use these days because this is where most of us spend our time.
Because of this, the definition of digital advertising is particularly broad and can encompass a wide range of marketing strategies, including but not limited to creative social media marketing, native display advertising, blogs, Pay Per Click affiliate marketing, and influencer marketing, to name just a few examples.
If something is posted online, it should be considered valid.
Product placement, which can be covert at times but is typically glaringly obvious, is something that has always been present in television shows, movies, and pretty much any other form of entertainment medium.
If you have the financial resources available, this can be a very fruitful marketing strategy; however, it is more expensive than other options.
At the conclusion of Zombieland, who among us didn't have a craving for a tasty Twinkie?
After watching The Matrix, I remember pleading with my parents to let me have a Nokia mobile phone.
Now that we understand what an advertisement is and the significance it plays, let's take a look at some of the most successful advertisements throughout the course of human history.
These examples of advertisements should, with any luck, provide some insight into the qualities that distinguish a great, classic advertisement and serve as a source of motivation for developing your own marketing strategies.
The print advertising campaign for Absolut began in 1980 and was an incredible success from the very beginning. This was the longest continuous advertising campaign in history, lasting for 25 years and featuring more than 1,500 unique images.
The result was a significant increase in Absolut's share of the market for vodka in the United States.
This innovative marketing campaign involved using everyday items and scenery to mimic the shape of the Absolut vodka bottle, which resulted in an exciting narrative that was enjoyed by everyone.
Despite the relatively unremarkable appearance of the bottle, the campaign was a success.
You can still make your product interesting and one of a kind even if it has an uninspiring appearance by applying some creativity to the process.
The Got Milk? campaign, run by the California Milk Processor Board and considered to be one of the most well-known print advertisements in the world, was successful in increasing milk sales in the state of California by 7% in a single year and capturing the imagination of people all over the world. Considering how memes and parodies are still widely used today!
The advertising firm Goodby, Silverstein & Partners developed the campaign, which targeted people who already consume milk with the reasoning that the only time people really think about milk is when they are out of it. The campaign was aimed at people who already consume milk.
The advertisement was broadcast for more than a decade across a variety of mediums, including print, television, radio, and billboards.
There are times when it is more beneficial to appeal to your existing market rather than to look for a new one.
This print advertisement was created in 1957, at a time when it was socially unacceptable to dye one's hair with artificial dyes.
Following a real conversation that took place between copywriter Shirley Polykoff and her mother-in-law, the phrase "does she, or doesn't she?" came to be used. This phrase plays off of the idea that a woman's hair coloring may be something that she only discusses with her hairdresser.
In 1957, when the print advertisement was first put into circulation, only one in fifteen women admitted to having colored their hair.
By the time the campaign was over (11 years later), this proportion had grown to one in two!
It's better to show than tell.
When the BBC wanted to promote their new show, Dracula, they took outdoor advertising to a whole new level and had it appeared all over the United Kingdom toward the end of 2019.
This billboard had a white background with a design that looked like several steaks being hammered into it during the day. acceptable for a television show about vampires, don't you think?
Nevertheless, once night fell, the steaks' ingenious design and strategic positioning caused a shadow to be cast across the white background, and it was clear that this shadow was meant to be a representation of the well-known count.
One of the most original and creative examples of advertising that we have ever seen.
Taking a creative approach to the use of tried-and-true advertising methods can help you come up with an idea that is truly one of a kind.
Before the launch of the Just Do It campaign by Nike in the late 1980s, the retailer of athletic apparel catered almost entirely to the needs of professional athletes and marathon runners.
This massive campaign was able to change people's perceptions of the brand by capitalizing on the most recent fitness trend to sweep the United States and rebranding itself as an apparel store catering to the general public.
The people who conceptualized this campaign believe that the advertisement captures our fundamental purpose.
Throughout the years, it has been published in a variety of formats, including a forward-thinking poster that is entirely in braille.
It's never too late to rebrand yourself and make your product or service more approachable to a new audience.
Under the umbrella of the Share a Coke with campaign, the vast majority of people are already familiar with the Coca-Cola bottles, cans, and advertisements that feature a huge variety of people's names.
What began in Australia in 2011 with 150 of that country's most popular names has since evolved into a phenomenon that is sweeping the globe. In fact, you can now contact Coca Cola to order a personalized bottle with a nickname or company logo printed on it.
The customization of a product that was only available for a limited time was incredibly inventive and led to other Coke campaigns featuring labels that featured song lyrics, holiday destinations, and other types of information.
In addition to the personalized labels, Coca-Cola advertised their motivational campaign on billboards all over the world.
Furthermore, individuals had the opportunity to text in their names in order to have them displayed on the billboards for all to see.
Naturally, Pepsi released its own advertisements to make fun of the competing company, but this certainly did not hinder the success of this particular campaign!
A personal connection can be sparked by anything, even something that is disposable or mass produced.
With one catchy slogan, DeBeers effectively altered the diamond industry as well as the institution of marriage for all of time.
This may go down as one of the most successful advertising campaigns of all time. A diamond will last a lifetime.
Before the launch of this advertising campaign, diamond engagement rings were nowhere near as common as they are now, which meant that DeBeers was essentially responsible for starting the entire industry from scratch.
Demonstrating how the right marketing campaign, executed at the right time, with the right words, and supported by the right visual, can completely alter a market.
Since 1948, each and every advertisement for DeBeers has included the slogan "A diamond is forever," and in 1999, AdAge ranked the campaign as the Number One Slogan of the Century.
You should never undervalue the role that advertising plays in the creation of luxury and value.
The most memorable advertisements continue to have an impact on us long after they have stopped airing, and Budweiser has always done an excellent job of tapping into the humor and ingenuity of its target demographic through clever advertising.
The first broadcast of the Whassup television commercial took place in 1999 and continued through 2002.
Those of us who are old enough to remember the 1990s were given a catchphrase that would remain popular for many years to come.
It depicted a group of friends who were watching a game together while drinking Budweiser.
This highly successful campaign was reimagined by Budweiser in 2020 as a quarantine edition with the tagline "checking up on mates is whassup."
You don't have to be offensive or veer off brand to create a funny advertisement that captivates the attention of your audience and inspires them to take action.
Commercials on television aren't always comedic. The powerful campaign that was run during the 2010 Games in Vancouver, the 2011 Special Olympics, and the 2012 Olympic Games in London touched the hearts of everyone who participated in them.
The advertising agency for Procter & Gamble (P&G) caught our attention with a clever video that demonstrates how P&G products are relevant to everyone's lives by delving deeper into the personal stories of professional athletes and the mothers who are largely responsible for their achievements.
Linked by the slogan or catchphrase This was the most successful global advertising campaign that P&G ever ran in its entire 175-year history, and it sparked the creativity of users all over the world. P&G is a proud sponsor of mothers.
It resulted in more than 370 million interactions across social media and drove an increase of over $500 million in sales for P&G.
It is critical that you establish an emotional connection with your audience. Do not be afraid to showcase the fact that you are a part of a larger or more universal story if this is the case.
The Always #LikeAGirl ad campaign inspired audiences when it ran in the 2015 Super Bowl with a ground breaking message that inspired people all over the world.
This campaign is an excellent example of how a great video can translate into a viral social media sensation.
The advertisement challenges the notion that participating in sports in a manner typical of a female is something to be ashamed of, and the hashtag is still used on social media today. In addition, 44 new girl power emojis are now available on mobile and social platforms around the world.
Because the message was so motivational, 94% of people think that #LikeAGirl has helped girls feel more confident, and there are now three times as many girls who associate the phrase "like a girl" with a positive connotation. Amazing!
Inspiring passion in your audience by acknowledging the challenges they face and delivering an impactful message can demonstrate to your customers that you are on their side.
This commercial just reeks of sophistication and coolness all over the place. The concept that drove the advertising campaign was that even if your man isn't quite as sophisticated and hip as the Old Spice Guy, with this cologne, he can be the next best thing!
The video for this campaign on YouTube currently has well over 59 million views, and the campaign itself went viral very quickly.
Mustafa (the Old Spice Man), who even recorded personalized video responses for online fans, was a big part of the success of this campaign by responding to people on social media in the way that the advertising agency did.
This campaign's success can be attributed in large part to the innovative and astute idea of having personalized mini ads made in order to respond to fans on social platforms.
This helped to ensure that the content remained relevant and surprisingly personal for an extended period of time.
If people start paying attention to your content, you should capitalize on their interest by producing original new content that you can share on social media. Maintain active engagement with the customer base.
This piece of online content may not be the most well-known example on our list; however, it is an excellent illustration of how a company can use the ideas of its customers in novel and inventive ways.
In point of fact, Google has been producing content titled "Year in Search" on an annual basis ever since 2016.
This video is shown every year to users as a way to remind them of how much they utilize and depend on the search engine in their day-to-day lives.
The purpose of the video is to promote Google's services. The videos each convey an important message and recount an event that took place within the past year.
The responsibility of producing content does not always fall on your shoulders.
You can create an emotional connection with your customers and promote your services in new ways by repurposing things that your users post or by highlighting how your company has helped in the past.
We have already discussed how people can be compelled to pay attention through the use of an original and memorable jingle (and get your tune stuck in their heads all day). The Metro Trains in Australia are a great illustration of how taking a fresh perspective on familiar phenomena can assist one in developing creative content that is ideally suited to conveying a particular message.
It didn't take long for Dumb Ways to Die to become an internet phenomenon; the song has even been played on the radio, and a mobile game based on Metro's design has even been developed!
The concept that underpinned this campaign was straightforward.
It's a stupid idea to fool around near the train tracks. In point of fact, it is just as stupid as passing away because you poked a grizzly bear, took off your helmet while you were in space, or ate food that had gone bad.
The message that messing around near trains is dangerous is conveyed with ease and humor in Metro Trains, which features humorous content that avoids giving the impression that it is lecturing the audience.
Even if your topic is morbid, there is no reason why you can't communicate with your audience by using creative content or cute design ideas.
Native advertising is available in the same places you would expect to find advertisements, such as newspapers, magazines, and television, but in a slightly different format. The use of this paid content by marketers is an alternative method for conveying their messages in a manner that is more understated.
There is a good chance that you will encounter native advertising on a daily basis. It might be in a blog post or even a newspaper article, and the topic will be something that is pertinent to the thing that is being marketed; however, the article won't necessarily be about the business itself.
In order for an article to be considered a native advertisement as opposed to an overt advertisement, it must be written in the same fashion and with the same tone of voice as the company or publication that is presenting it.
A great example of native advertising is the use of guest or sponsored blog posts on a website. However, native advertising can also be found in banner ads and other places.
Affiliate marketing and Pay Per Click marketing are both generally considered native advertising.
If you want to determine whether the article you are reading was written to promote a specific company, look for a logo that says "sponsored" or for other similar indicators. It might surprise you to learn how widespread these are!
You might feel that using native advertising to promote your business is a sneaky way to do so; however, the blog post itself will frequently be full of truly valuable ideas and content, so you shouldn't be immediately put off by the idea.
Any post that contains affiliate links or that is being compensated for the content must make it abundantly clear somewhere within the post that they are doing so.
Buzzfeed is loaded with sponsored posts and other forms of native advertising. Although the majority of the content on the Shopping pages, in particular, is geared toward making a purchase from you, some of the other pages on the website may also contain native advertisements.
If you get your news from Forbes, then it's likely that you've seen examples of native advertising in the form of guest posts. This is similar to the situation with Buzzfeed. They will let you know when a post has been written by another company by including the tag "BrandVoice" in the post.
Just like Buzzfeed, the fact that a post was written by another company to promote their own services does not automatically mean that the content is not worthwhile.
According to Forbes, these articles offer both storytelling and the expertise of various marketers, which is probably an accurate definition of what they provide.
For instance, the financial services company Fidelity is a frequent contributor to the website and has written an informative article on how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in the development of your company.
If you are interested in this topic, you may also find our article about chatbots to be of interest.
You should now be ready to get creative and design the next best marketing campaign, but before you do so, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself first.
Now that you have some ideas on what makes a great ad campaign (and maybe you've also checked out your competitors' ads on social media), you should be ready to get creative and design the next best marketing campaign.
When you have determined the Who, What, Where, and When of your advertisements, you will be well on your way to developing an innovative marketing campaign that will assist your company in standing out for all of the reasons that are positive.
