The good qualities of a great advertisement are the ad should be simple, to the point, suggestive, have a memorizing appeal, and educate your audience, customer and people.
Advertising is the life of a business. You must advertise in order to stay in business. NEWSPAPER ADVERTISING Every advertising medium has characteristics that give it natural advantages and limitations. As you look through your newspaper(s), you’ll notice some businesses that advertise regularly. Observe who they are and how they advertise their products and services. More than likely, their advertising investment is working if it’s selling! Almost every home in the United States receives a newspaper, either by newsstand or home delivery. Reading the newspaper is a habit for most families. And, there is something for everybody — sports, comics, crosswords, news, classifieds, etc. You can reach certain types of people by placing your ad in different sections of the paper. People expect advertising in the newspaper. In fact, many people buy the paper just to read the ads from the supermarket, movies or department stores. Unlike advertising on TV and radio, advertising in the newspaper can be examined at your leisure. A newspaper ad can contain details, such as prices and telephone numbers or coupons. There are many advantages to advertising in the newspaper. From the advertiser’s point-of-view, newspaper advertising can be convenient because production changes can be made quickly, if necessary, and you can often insert a new advertisement on short notice. Another advantage is the large variety of ad sizes newspaper advertising offers. Even though you may not have a lot of money in your budget, you can still place a series of small ads, without making a sacrifice. Some Disadvantages with Newspaper Advertising Advertising in the newspaper offers many advantages, but it is not without its inherent disadvantages, such as: 1. Newspapers usually are read once and stay in the house for just a day. 2. The print quality of newspapers isn’t always the best, especially for photographs. So use simple artwork and line drawings for best results. 3. The page size of a newspaper is fairly large and small ads can look minuscule. 4. Your ad must compete with other ads for the reader’s attention. 5. You’re not assured that every person who gets the newspaper will read your ad. They may not read the section you advertised in, or they may simply have skipped the page because they were not interested in e news on it. How Should I Work with my Newspaper Representative? Every newspaper has its own sales staff, and you’re normally given a personal newspaper “sales representative.” A newspaper sales rep can be very helpful. He or she can keep you posted on special sections or promotions that may apply to your business, but always keep in mind it is the sales rep’s job to sell you advertising. Your sales rep might say that the newspaper can lay out any of your ads, pre-prepared or not. But these ads are assembly line products and are not often very creative or eye-catching. Consider using an artist or agency for your ads. In addition, your sales rep can sometimes be instrumental in making sure your story or upcoming announcement “finds” the right reporter because the relationship between the advertising and editorial staff is chummier than most people think, despite claims of total independence. Buying Newspaper Advertising Space Since the Expanded Standard Advertising Unit System was adopted back in 1984, it is now easier to buy advertising space in newspapers. Advertising is sold by column and inch, instead of just line rates. You can determine the size ad you want just by looking in the newspaper in which you want to advertise. If you can’t locate an ad that’s the size you want, just measure the columns across and the inches down. For example, an ad that measures 3 columns across and 7 inches down would be a 21-inch ad. If the inch rate is $45.67, your ad will cost $959.07. In case your newspaper is still on the line rate system, remember there are 14 lines to an inch. So, if the line rate is $3.75, multiply it by 14 and you will have the cost of an inch rate. (The rate would be $45.50 an inch.) Here are some other things to remember: 1. Newspaper circulation drops on Saturdays and increases on Sundays, which is also the day a newspaper is read most thoroughly. 2. Position is important, so specify in what section you want your ad to appear. Sometimes there’s a surcharge for exact position … but don’t be afraid to pay for it if you need it. 3. Request an outside position for ads that have coupons. That makes them easier to cut out. 4. If a newspaper is delivered twice daily (morning/evening),it often offers “combination” rates or discounts for advertising in both papers. You usually can reach more readers, so this kind of advertising may be something to consider. Other important tips to remember are: ! Before you advertise, have in mind a definite plan for what it is you want to sell. ! Create short, descriptive copy for your ad. Include prices if applicable. Consider using a copywriter or ask your newspaper for free copy assistance. ! Face your products toward the inside of the ad. If the product you want to use faces right, change your copy layout to the left. ! Be sure to include your company name and logo, address and telephone number in the ad. ! Neat, uncluttered and orderly ads encourage readership. Don’t try to crowd everything you can in the layout. If the newspaper helps you with the layout, be sure to request a proof of the final version so you can approve it or make changes before it is printed. ! Always make sure you are satisfied with what your advertising says and how it looks before it goes to print.
