  • 4. 4 Steps to Creating an Iconic Ad
    STEP 1 – Contribute to the consumer’s self-expression and personal identity:

    This could be a link to their past or how they see themselves in an ideal world.

    STEP 2 - Be simple and repetitious enough to be absorbed easily
    If an ad becomes too complicated or needs to be explained, it won't easily be assimilated in the brain and will therefore be easily forgotten.
    It takes the average human at least 8-9 viewings of most advert's before they will be remembered - so if the ad fails to make enough impressions on an individual through repeated exposure, the ad will not be assimilated.

    STEP 3 - Be courageous enough to create something different (extraordinary) from the industry norms
    All the truly iconic ads were created by stepping outside the norm. This requires great courage and fortitude.
    A safety first approach will land you right in the middle of the cluster - your only way out here is a big budget. Be courageous. Take a chance!

    STEP 4 – Tell a great story
    Tell a story that people will re-tell. Not only does this give you viral potential, it also has the power of memory reinforcement, because when someone re-tells a story they tend to remember the message much longer.
