Commercial Campaign Review Project

Commercials are created to get a company’s product recognized for present or future use. They’re many different kinds of commercials, some are created to make you hungry, help with pain, offer healthier food for your dogs, and especially to make your kids beg you for toys they see on the television. Commercials are the most effective marketing technique as far as getting a product recognized and publicly known. I personally love funny commercials and the ones I have decided to talk about have made me laugh and have left an impression in my mind of their products. The first commercial I am reviewing looks like it takes place in 1950’s, it edgy, different and funny. Progressive Insurance commercials have had a few funny ad campaigns, and this one is no different. Taking place in a time when women were the ‘stay at home moms’ and the fathers were the breadwinners, this commercial takes it another step and criticizes a women who’s trying to take matters in her own hands by price checking other companies to try and save money. As she talks a Man keeps interrupting her as to why she isn’t cooking or taking care of the kids, while she tries to put him in his place, the commercial ends with the man asking where her husband was? I didn’t grow up in the 50’s, so I could see how an older generation could be affected by this Ad. However I was not, it’s a witty commercial that makes me think about how things use to be. Progressive is a huge corporate company that sells every kind of insurance there pretty much is, such as auto, home, renters, motorcycle, R.V and even boat insurance. As a billion dollar company they can afford lavish and entertaining television commercials to entice anyone to use their company. From the college student using them for their inexpensive car insurance and renters insurance for their apartment, to a…...

Web Campaign

...WEB CAMPAIGN Objectives: * Drive targeted traffic to the Facebook page and increase “Likes” of Social Magazine by 300 in a 6 month period. * Increase followers on Twitter * Develop customer relations through social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook * Establish the company in local search * Increase the customer database by 20% each week. Through the Web Campaign we aim to use the company’s Facebook page as a dominant source of information since the company’s website is currently under construction. Through this campaign, our aim is to spread awareness of the magazine, attract new readers, and keep current readers from switching over to other magazines. This will be done in the following ways: 1. Content Teasers Without giving away the whole story, social media sites offer publishers a chance to give readers a glimpse of what’s in their current issues, with the hopes of either redirecting readers to a web version of their print publication, or to a magazine stand to purchase a hard copy. Either way, headline glimpses are a great way to hook readers who might otherwise have missed a story in which they have interest. 2. Content Enhancement Since Social magazine does not offer digital versions of their print publications, social media sites let magazine publishers take advantage of the benefits of digital publishing and the large audiences who have become faithful social media users. Photo galleries, video sidebars and the many other......

Daisy Ad

...the Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy Ad” and the “I’m Mad” advertisement by Ronald Regan for support of Barry Goldwater, there are similarities between the two videos as well as vast differences. The Johnson campaign committee made a very dramatic dramatization of what would happen if the people of the United States elected Goldwater for president in 1964, portraying that if Goldwater were elected the entire nation would be thrown into war. During this terrible time frame which was referred to as the Cold War, people were constantly on edge of fear of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union and its allies, many U.S. citizens were accused of treason and blackballed. Johnson wanted to use the fear and gullibility of the nation at that time to gain an advantage in the presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Regan spent the entirety of the Goldwater ad attempting to clear the dirt away from the Goldwater family. But, in this advertisement for Goldwater, Regan does little to retract the statements made by the Johnson ad, instead he tries to justify that the country needs someone impulsive to keep the nation on edge and to keep the nations defenses at a maximum. Both videos portray attempts by both candidates to manipulate the voters through fear of an imminent attack on the U.S. by Soviet forces. The only differences in the videos is how they catered the message to the viewers, with the Johnson ad being a direct attempt to slander the opponent, whilst the Goldwater ad was a mere rebuke by......

Marketing Campaign

...The Old Spice “Smell Like a Man, Man” Campaign In 2010 the “Smell like a Man, Man” campaign was born. Proctor & Gamble (Old Spice’s parent company) launched this brilliant campaign in the United States, to market their Red Zone After Hours body wash for men. The main objective of the campaign was starting a conversation between men and women about body wash. Essentially they wanted to get people talking about their brand and to generate enough interest to boost sales. In order to achieve this goal, P & G did their market research and realized that 60% of all body washes are purchased by women. In order to increase sales, Old Spice would first have to win over female shoppers. Old Spice then hired former football player, Isaiah Mustafa as the new face behind their brand. He was the perfect spokesperson- funny, manly, and oozing with sex appeal. With women being their target audience, he became “the man your man could smell like.” By using a clever combination of short television ads, word of mouth and social media platforms like YouTube, twitter and face book, the “Smell like a Man, Man” campaign became one of the fastest growing and most popular interactive campaigns in history. To really appreciate the success of this campaign, it is essential to have some background information about the brand. Old Spice is an American male grooming brand that has been in existence since 1934. Given the longevity of the brand, Old Spice tends to appeal to an older......

Burger King's Horrible, Creepy Ad Campaign Isn't Working

...King's Horrible, Creepy Ad Campaign Isn't Working DEREK THOMPSONJUN 22 2009, 2:30 PM ET 0 inShare More To the surprise of nobody, Burger King's horrible, creepy advertisement campaign is not working, and the company finds itself falling further behind McDonald's according to just-released figures. This strikes a huge blow to the idea that what Americans want from their fast food joint is a Bobblehead King doll who sneaks into your bed, raps about square butts, and terrorizes you from outside your bedroom window. Yes, those were advertisements for hamburgers. In other words, thank you America, for compelling our elites to put the strategic back into strategic advertising. Gawker has been on this story for a while, and they point out that the advertisement firm in charge of creeping out the country was the award-winning team at Crispin Porter Bogusky. Unfortunately for BK and Crispin, they don't award marketshare at advertisement gatherings and in this most crucial category, the company is not keeping track: Between 2003 -- the year before Burger King hired Crispin as agency of record -- and 2008, Burger King's share of the burger-chain market fell to 14.2% from 15.6%, according to Technomic, while McDonald's share rose to 46.8% from 43.6%. McDonald's has posted average annual sales growth of 6.3% compared with BK's 2.9% gain during that period. McDonald's is a behemoth, so maybe catching up isn't possible, with or without a marketing campaign that seems designed to......

Ad Campaign Analysis

...Individual Report The purpose of this paper is to review an ad campaign and analyze it through the lens of a consumer behavior theory. The goal is to be able to explain the success of an ad campaign by the use of a certain consumer behavior theory. The campaign I chose to analyze is titled, “How BBL bashed through to a lost generation of Australians” which was being advertised by Cricket Australia. The concept of involvement plays a significant role in determining the success of this ad campaign, and determining the consumer behavior theory that best explains the success of the campaign. CA (Cricket Australia) emphasized the importance between the correlation of involvement and behavior change, “The degree of involvement has a very significant effect on consumer behavior.”(slideshare.net) I will first provide a short summary of the campaign and then link the success of the campaign to the Social Judgement Theory. The concept involvement “has been discussed for over “two decades in the consumer behavior literature and even longer in psychology.” (Muncy, 1984) CA took aim in getting a specified target audience who was not engaged with the sport then raising their awareness about the sport and in turn getting them to take action by watching it through the television, or actually watching the games live. The goal was not simply to increase traffic in their television broadcasts or their live game turn ups, instead CA wanted the fans to ignite a passion for the game of......

...Altruism in Society Campaign and Presentation Demetrius Gaskin PSY/400 March 16, 2015 Richard Daigneault Altruism in Society Campaign and Presentation Two Elements of Persuasion communicating information to the public about domestic violence is obtainable in a variety of ways; to provide assistance to those involved in domestic violence; past, present, and future. How the message is interpreted is of the utmost of importance. In most cases, the art of persuasion can influence emotions in domestic violence, but it will also play a vital role in a successful campaign. Altruistic behavior helps maintain an environment of concern and helpfulness. Television and radio commercials will have people who care about a cause which can readily spread a wealth of information to the public actually. Non-profit corporations have individuals who are advocates of domestic violence and can create informative ways of reaching out to children by way of schools asking them if "members of the family" are upset at one another. Non-profit corporations can begin to display pictures, videos, and movies of individuals who have been abused by domestic violence. Case managers and social workers will be provided to ensure confidentiality. Not only is this information aided by children, but adults who care and just want to be a part of something that combats an evil will participate. Communities will be asked to participate also, a sufficient amount of persuasion will be used. There are......

'Like a Girl' Consumer Behaviour Ad Campaign

...Real World Application Exercise: Always “Like A Girl” Video Ad Campaign Procter & Gamble’s Always brand, known for selling feminine hygiene products, launched the first video of their “like a girl” campaign this past June. Always sponsored a social experiment where participants of varying ages from both genders, although predominantly females, were asked to act out phrases such as “fight like a girl” and “run like a girl.” The older participants exaggerated their movements and appeared weak and unsuccessful in their actions, while the younger girls tried their best and acted as they would normally would. The viewers are then asked when the phrase, “like a girl” became an insult, and question why it can’t mean good things, such as, “win the race.” The fact that girls’ confidence plummets during puberty is displayed, and then the older females get the opportunity to retry their actions and complete them with certainty and confidence. Always claims that they want to redefine the phrase “like a girl” to be interpreted positively so that girls everywhere will feel proud and confident when they do things “like a girl” (Herzfeld, 2014). Always Brand Director Amanda Hill hopes it is the beginning of a long-term campaign to change the meaning of the phrase “like a girl,” while building brand loyalty (Neff, 2014). The campaign targets females who may be approaching puberty, in the midst, or post-puberty who need that confidence boost and restored empowerment. Always uses a......

History of Ads

...estimate that on average, the typical North American will see 3000 ads per day (2010). With such a high level of advertising around consumers every day, is it likely that advertising shapes society, or that it merely mirrors pre-existing social trends? This is important because should advertising shape society, the high numbers of advertisements in existence could have a substantial impact to society’s wellbeing, as well as the ethical issues surrounding the messages and behaviours advertisers are trying to achieve. The question of advertising as a mirror vs. creator of culture is one of the most debated issues of the relationship between advertising and society. Does the image of woman represented in advertising shapes society or mirrors already prevailing social trends? Hypothesis The advertising media produces messages,images and ideas of woman, which therefore affect the process of social change. Conclusion The controversy between critical media sociologists, who emphasize the value producing function of advertising, and empirics, who are foremost interested in demonstrating how social reality is reflected in advertising, seems to have subsided in recent years, resulting in a compromise integrating both approaches The history and change of woman portrayed in advertising Depression and war: Changing roles The Great Depression and World War II left indelible marks on society. Through the 1930s, ad copy continued to portray women primarily as homemakers......

Campaign Financin

...CAMPAIGN FINANCING Using financial clout to influence the outcome of an election is an age-old practice in America's politics, and all 50 states have published code sections that money is spent during such. These code sections are placed to provide both accountability and transparency. Elections and campaigns continue to become more expensive and the involved candidates are forced to seek funding from the private sector to cover these costs. The use of money to influence an election's outcome is seen as an expression of free speech by many. However, others believe that money has a corruptive influence on the candidates, which results in a net negative outcome. Each state, therefore, has the designated duty to regulate campaign finance either by imposing disclosure, by setting limits of contribution or by providing a system where elections are publicly funded, all these to promote political equality. I believe that campaign finance reform has failed to prevent corruption and to promote even political equality, and thus I oppose it. An article written in 2003 in the journal of economic perspectives published the results of a study of about forty peer reviewed studies that had been published from the year 1972. The study showed that more contributions had no significant statistical effects with regards to legislation; the legislators were staunch to stand by their beliefs, those of their voters and even stood by their parties. A corrupt legislator will not be swayed by the......

Marketing Definition and Importance of Good Ad Campaign

...businesses, the marketing department has to be a central part of the organization; otherwise companies that are driven by consumer sales will not be as successful as desired. There was a recent article written on the Coors Brewing Company, when it teamed up with HP’s marketing department to come up with a way for the local distributors to produce a marketing campaign and still hold fast to the ideology that the Coors Company had relied upon since its inception. The marketing plan gave the local suppliers the capability to come up with a promotion that was geared towards area target groups. Through the joint venture with HP, Coors was also able to develop another business venture with those selling the Coors products by allowing those distributors to modify the products to gear them in the direction of their target group. In the past, every supplier was given the same type of advertising equipment or product, by changing their way of thinking, the Coors Company saw a jump in sales due, in part to the change the POS (point of sale) campaigns. The arena of soft-drinks is another area where a marketing campaign can either make or break a product. For example Coco-Cola; On April 23, 1985 Coca-Cola had the bright idea of changing the formula that had been a true testament of American ingenuity and the result was “New Coke”. This was an ultimate failure and Coca-Cola, after many consumer complaints, realized the error of their ways and on July 11, 1985 pulled......

...Roger David is the market leader in young men's fashion and accessories The above image (smh.com.au) shows the banned advertisement from Roger David. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY In mid 2011 Roger David released an advertisement for their new clothing line “New Love Club” through an email campaign to their existing customer base.

It is reported in the ASB Case Report (2011), that he Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) received complaints from the public that the advertisement was offensive due to its representation of young girls as vulnerable and slaves and lacks sensitivity to the growing child exploitation and sexist depiction of girls and women. Upon investigation by the Advertising Standards Board the advertisement was found to have breached the AANA’s Code of Ethics. ASB Case Report (2011). Section 2.3 of the AANA Code (2009) states that an advertisement shall treat sex, sexuality and nudity with sensitivity to the relevant audience. On this basis, the Board determined that this section of the Code was breached and the advertisement was discontinued.
