Advertising campaign

The advertising campaign is the groups of advertising messages which are similar in nature. They share same messages and themes placed on different types of media at some fixed times. The time frames of the ad campaign are fixed and specifically defined.

The very prime thing before making an ad campaign is to know- Why you are advertising and what are you advertising? Click To Tweet

Why refers to the objective of an ad campaign. The objective of an ad campaign is to

  • Inform people about your product
  • Convince them to buy the product
  • Make your product available to the customers

The process of making an advertising campaign is as follows:

Research work: First step is to do a market research for the product to be advertised. One needs to find out the product demand, competitors, etc.

Know the target audience: One needs to know who is going to buy the product and who should be targeted.

Budgeting: The next step is to set the budget, keeping in mind all the factors like media, presentations, paper works, etc., which have a role in the process of advertising and the places where there is a need of funds.

Theme based: The theme for the campaign has to be decided as in the colors to be used, the graphics should be similar or almost similar in all ads, the music and the voices to be used, the designing of the ads, the way the message will be delivered, the language to be used, jingles, etc. For digital media, a theme-based banner ad can be useful.

Selection of media: The media or number of media selected should be the one which will reach the target customers. Currently, the Facebook ad campaign is in top priority.

Media scheduling: The scheduling has to be done accurately so that the ad will be visible or be read or be audible to the targeted customers at the right time.

Executing the campaign: Finally, the campaign has to be executed and then the feedback has to be noted. The right type of campaign certainly creates the right brand image.

Mostly used media tools are print media and electronic media. Print media includes newspaper, magazines, pamphlets, banners, and hoardings. Electronic media includes radio, television, e-mails, sending a message on mobiles, and telephonic advertising. The only point to remember is getting a proper frequency for the ad campaign so that the ad is visible and grasping time for customers is good enough.

All advertising campaigns do not have fix duration. Some campaigns are seasonal and some run all year round. All campaigns differ in timings. Some ad campaign is media based, some are area based, some are product based, and some are objective based. It is seen that generally, ad campaign run successfully, but in case if the purpose is not solved in any case, then the theory is redone, required changes are made using the experience, and the remaining advertising campaign is carried forward. For a great result, a great advertising campaign execution is needed.
