Adverts That Work

by | Sep 11, 2019

Here at Codebreak, we regularly place successful adverts across a range of digital and print media, so we know what it takes to grab your audience’s attention. With our advice, you’ll never have to worry about wasting money or time again because your marketing will hit the spot consistently.

Continue reading to find out more about what you can do to revolutionise your advertising effort and secure more leads and conversions.

Know Your Audience

Unless you know your audience, you won’t know what strategies to use and which platforms to target. Different demographics consume media differently, from print newspapers to television to social media, so you should be aware of whether Facebook advertising will be a hit or a waste of time.

There are lots of ways to do it, but asking questions in the form of a survey is still the most straightforward method. You should also gauge how they respond online – are they leaving likes and comments? If so, are they positive? Last but not least, look at your competitors and analyse their strategy.

Solve A Problem

Your product or service needs to solve a problem, which is why you should offer them a solution. An excellent tool is a map. By writing down what the customer wants, you should be able to find a gap in the market to target. Links are also useful. A digital ad is interactive, so take advantage of this by linking to a how-to guide or an instructional video for their information.

Hit The Right Tone

Developing your tone of voice isn’t simple, yet it’s essential for success. The key is to keep it professional but to be friendly, welcoming and funny wherever possible. Social media is perfect for witty banter between followers and brands, for example. Of course, you should take the product or service into account. If it’s sad or dark, lighthearted won’t work.

Place Your Adverts In The Right Place

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all policy here because every group is different. However, social media is always a good inclusion as it lets you break down your targets. Are you looking to show ads to women in their 30s in Oxford who have young children and like tennis? No problem because facebook lets you target people by interests, job titles, age, and gender.

Use analytic software to determine your target audience so that you’re marketing in the right place.

Call Them To Action

Your advert may do all of the above and still not get a response. The reason is simple – there wasn’t a call to action. Encouraging your audience to go out and try your service can convince them to make a purchase, but your calls to action have to be powerful. Today, the best ones offer value and solve problems simultaneously. For example, a free trial gets people to try your product by giving them something for nothing. Hopefully, after a week or a month (the choice is yours), they’ll continue to use your brand and stay loyal.
