News: Why advertising can follow suit

14th September 2017

News has the ability to proliferate and burgeon across the web with ease: it is worth talking about – ensure your advertising is too

NEWS Continues to compel your consumers, foster debate and dominate both the TV and online viewing spheres: advertising take note.

TV advertising has long been served its death sentence as other more accountable, measurable and actionable means of advertising have delivered lower costs and more targeted results.

What has lacked in online’s roster invariably has been the transparency of true ad consumption, placement, display and fears of fraud.

At a time where TV has continued to remain steadfast in its ability to remain successful, offering lucrative and versatile solutions for myriad businesses, advertising’s ability to resonate online has been inherently compromised by the very virtues that have compelled many to TV contemporarily, and online for SVOD.

The issue of convenience has stymied many brands as they look to circumvent the disruptive nature of banner ads, pre-rolled video ads and generic PPC.

TV and increasingly online driven catch-up services viewed on lap-tops and tablets have served to entertain and satisfy consumer desire for enrichment, inspiration and relaxation.

The overall mindset of consumers juxtaposes wildly between online and TV – well historically at least – from one driven towards being influenced in the case of TV and the other towards convenience.

Thus in a world where convenience dominates the world of online, fostering a rhetoric that assists in the processing of facts, narratives and issues will be prudent for your company.

News provides the daily satisfaction and knowledge of current and other more esoteric affairs, dependant on the preferences of the consumer.

The similarities between news and advertising, in terms of how they interact with advertising is tangible.

Of course every news outlet, whether it be print, online or broadcast will have its own agenda or preference of copy usage; ultimately it delivers what is in the public interest.

Thus in the interest of boosting both short and long-term commerce your company should seek to follow such a model: one of authority and credibility in the niche you are situated in, notwithstanding providing the products and services that can be generally newsworthy.

Given the power of search and what is necessary to command authority over the algorithms in Google is the credible, prolific commentary within your industry.

As you harness the means of advertising and connecting with your consumers via direct response ads, ascertaining the terms and access routes of your consumers to your online outlets is invaluable to you tailoring your future campaigns to them.

News and the credibility of it determines the depth of people that view and potentially engage with it.

Through being news in the first instance it has to be in the public interest and provide something fresh, groundbreaking or a change at least from any previous eventuality.

Thus as you seek to collate the qualitative, granular data for your advertising campaigns, ensuring that it is reflective of the terms your audience actually deem search worthy and want to engage with is imperative.

Moreover within the stimulus of your advertising, which based on long-term effectiveness should be TV, your overall brand ethos needs to be reflected in any future response campaigns, copy and commentary your business disseminates for a consistent style guide to develop.

Ultimately unless you are a retailing conglomerate you will be looking to celebrate and vindicate your niche business, therefore the precedent must be to showcase originality; alternatives; improvements to everyday life, which subsequently can be newsworthy.

Through innovations and products or services that challenge, your advertising can proliferate like the news.

The caveat to this directive though should be to equally remain communicative with publications, higher representatives and experts within your industry or trade, ensuring that you can harness their leverage to further advocate your business.

While this will be crucial within response advertising online and also through mobile and VOD via connected software, celebrating such innovations ensures it will be easier to cement the virtues of your brand upon consumers across linear and increasingly targeted TV.

Although emotion is pivotal to the cementation of your brand and ads on TV and beyond, information and how it is conveyed is equally paramount.

The quality of your ads is underpinned by the quality of your actors, artists and producers.

Thus as well as utilising the qualities of credible production companies, who can optimise the power of symbolism in subject matter to imbue your message on consumers, the actors – akin to presenters in broadcast or journalists in print and online – equally come to the fore.

Your ability to influence the consumer in both a response and brand indexation sense is dependant on the ease and quality in which you convey facts.

When processing facts communicated in an articulate and vivid manner, the human mind is stimulated, it enforces emotive resonance and memorability, ensuring your ads will be relevant and memorable.
