Creating an advertisement for your business, whether it's print, web, media, or outdoor, is a process that should be strategically planned based on your target customer. There are a few approaches you can take to creating an effective ad that will impact specifically your customer and help grow your business.
Make it Memorable
A successful ad will not only grab your target customer's attention, but remain circling in their mind after they've seen it. There are many ways to make a memorable ad. Using clever humor, exciting imagery, or heartfelt emotions are all examples of ways to leave a lasting impression on your audience.
Make it Relatable
Giving your audience a vision of themselves in your advertising makes them feel seen and heard. So representing your target customer in your ad will form a powerful connection and give them a reason to trust you. So be genuine and tell a story making the customer the hero.
Fulfill a Need
One of the most practical methods for an effective ad is to create a need and then offer to fill it. Sometimes the need is already there, all you have to do is remind the audience it exists. And sometimes the need is something you'll have to educate your audience on. Either way, make sure you have a solution better than anyone else.
State Your Values
Your business values should be aligned with those of your target customer. So making them known through your advertising will give your customer a desire to support your business and what it stands for. This can be political or religious beliefs, a social or environmental perspective, passion for the location where your business is based, or even loyalty to a sports team.
Go Big or Go Home
Sometimes you just need to pull out all the stops and establish yourself as the best. Investing in powerful, dynamic advertising to essentially show off and outdo your competitors gives you professional credibility, which is exactly what some customers are looking for.
