    • UNILEVERPLAN FOR GOOD ADVERTISING
    • Plan for Good Advertising
      Conclusions of an International Advertising Conference in London.
      Not a new way of making good advertising, “but this is what we do!”
      Plan is composed of elements which have been used and shown to be sound – a tightly disciplined procedure than has usually been achieved consistently in the past.
      Accepted by all concerned with Unilever’s advertising the world over.
    • Unilever’S definition of Good Advertising
      “Good Brand Advertising is that which builds
      up preference in the consumer’s mind for
      one particular brand, and thereby persuades
      her to try it and continue to use it.”
    • 10 Principles of Good Brand Advertising
      It is Consumer Oriented
      It is based on fundamental consumer need, attitudes, and interests. It reflects the consumer point of view, rather than the manufacturers’ or dealers’ preferences or interests.
    • It concentrates on One Selling Idea
      It does not scatter its efforts or diffuse its impact. It focuses on one single idea (selected basic consumer benefit) that can establish a penetrating, memorable reason for trial.
    • It concentrates on the most Important and Persuasive Idea available
      Effective advertising represents and registers the most powerful and persuasive appeal available – the true key to the consumers mind.
    • It presents a Unique and Competitive Idea
      It contains the promise of a unique competitive advantage. It creates a distinctive quality and brand identity. It is highly competitive in its impression and effect.
    • It involves the Consumer
      Effective advertising recognises that the consumer’s motivation to buy comes from the head and heart.
      Effective advertising is personal – it appeals to the consumer’s self interest.
    • It is Credible and Sincere
      Where ever, it documents and demonstrates, or proves its claims. It provides assurance, is straightforward and hones in the concept and presentation.
      It recognizes that the consumer is not a moron – she is your wife.
    • It is Simple, Clear and Complete
      There are no alternative meanings, no possibility of confusion or misunderstanding. It is uncomplicated, completely understandable.
    • It clearly associates the Selling Idea with the Brand Name
      It tells the consumer what the brand is used for. It clearly registers the brand name and links it with the selling idea.
    • It takes full advantage of the Medium
      Certain ideas are better fitted to one medium than another. Effective advertising varies its presentation of the selling idea to capitalise on the physical characteristics and mood of the medium.
      Medium is the Message! – Marshall McLuhan
    • It demands Action that will lead to the Sale
      Effective advertising transforms passive acceptance or interest into action. It demands immediate response – and a long-term favourable attitude. It implants in the consumer the urge to buy.
    • How to Apply the Principles
      No automatic lead to creativity. Unless creative ability is at a high level the advertising will not be good enough.
      In picking the right WHAT to say.
      After that HOW.
      WHAT must be supported by consumer research – the benefit the brand is going to promise is if vital interest to the consumer.
    • Procedure of Company Action
      Write the Brand’s Marketing Strategy
      Company responsibility, with Ad Agency collaboration.
      Define:
      The Market
      The consumer aimed at
      Brand information
      The Competition
      Marketing and Sales Objectives – short-term and
      long-term
    • Write the Brand’s Copy Strategy
      Agency responsibility – but agreed and adhered to by the company. It defines what to say, but not how to say it, yet.
      Three Statements :
      The selected basic consumer benefit
      Supporting Evidence
      The desired Brand Image
    • Check that the Product supports the selected basic Consumer Benefit
      The consumer must be satisfied the product delivers the promised benefit. Especially the difference viz competition.
    • Establish a regular programme of research to provide basis for decisions
      Best available methods to provide a firm basis for making informed judments.
      This is needed to support decisins stated in the BMS, creative strategy, and the effectiveness of the advertising – pre and post release.
    • The HOW !
      The How
      – the way in which the What is communicated
      to the consumer is the agency’s responsibility,
      and must be judged and approved by the
      company.
      The creative quality of the How can be judged in two stages:
      Answering the questions on effectiveness internally.
      By Pre-Testing method of research – motivation towards purchase. Not only recall.
    • The How
      Questions you must ask about the advertising
      produced:
      Does it promise a basic consumer benefit. What’s in it for me?
      Does it offer a convincing reason why? Persuades?
      Is it unique and competitive? Differentiating?
      Does it clearly identify the brand? Name and image?
      Does it involve the consumer? Evokes empathy, emotional connect? Arouses desire and leads to action?
      Is it clear and uncomplicated? Comprehendible and meaningful as desired.
    • Responsibility for advertising judgement should be clearly assigned and given to senior people (experts) in the company
      Judgment??
      Skill. Expertise. Knowledge. Encouragement and inspiration.
      Authority? Veto?
      Fortunes depend on the decision!!
    • Prepare company/Agency procedures – Document – clearly stating responsibilities involved and checks to be used
      BMS
      Agency Brief
      Creative and Media Strategy
