WHAT MAKES AN EFFECTIVE ADVERT DO'S DON'TS Integrated marketing communication or IMC is simply the plan of attack businesses have to achieve certain goals in marketing; to do this many methods are used in effective ways. For example this includes paid advertisements on different media, uses of social media, promotion and earned media/PR, if this is done correctly it can positively affect the target audiences aspect and knowledgeof a brand. American association of advertising agencies define IMC as recognizes the value of a comprehensive plan that evaluates the strategic roles of a variety of communication disciplines advertising, public relations, personal selling and sales promotion and combines them to provide clarity and consistency and maximum communication impact. IMC SHOULD BE A SYMPHONY When advertising effectively you must go for a certain audience which is most suitable for your product, making an advertisement generic is a very negative ay of advertising as it doesnt grab any particle audience and there fore isnt as effective as possible. Also advertisements must be able to send across the message of why their product is beneficial to the audience and why it is better than similar products in the market. It is not enough to have a clever ad a without showing the pros of your product your product is still on the same level as the others, an effective advert should indicate to the audience why their product is better than the rest and why theirs should be used, without doing that the advert looses the amount of impact it has on its audience. dont advertise in the wrong places! adverts should be placed in the correct places so it reaches the right audience or else your ad becomes pointless. this includes the correct time aslwell,for example if your target audience was children under 11, then cartoon channels on tv would be the best place to advertise as they re much more likely to see the advertisement, time also effects how much impact the advert has, if youre advertising to children on a cartoon channel then 12 oclock a night would have hardly any impact as not many children would be able to see it. for an advert to be effectiveit must reach its target audience effectively, have an impacting logo, be different to their competitors and there are some general do'sand dont's about how to create an advert Stand out! creating a unite and enjoyable ad will be more effective than the average advert and won't need to be shown so many times.understand your target audience! this is so the adverts can effect a group of people more than ever Done correctly, IMC can be compared to a symphony; each instrument produces a particular sound, and all instruments in unison make beautiful music.

One instrument playing on its own may intrigue a passerby, but all instruments playing in unison draws a paying crowd thats if the instruments are in harmony (consistency) and people like the music (relevancy) and that is IMC. There are many ways at looking at advertising- as a business, as a creative communication process, a social phenomenon, and a fundamental ingredient of the free-enterprise system. There are many ways to connect to potential customers by using adverts through many different medias such as; TV, through websites, emails, posters, newspaper ads radio and telephone marketing.
