UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIXCOMMENTS FOR AD #3 The style of ad is a simple banner located usually on the middle of a news page. Simple animation style. Use of the brand colors although the type seems more refined. Mention of two specific publishers “ The New Yorker” and “Vanity Fair: Partnership The ad can be found just in the online sites of the Conde Nast publications Awareness and Call to action “Get involved” The type of publisher can be categorized as fashion & entertainment with a wide target that captures: Adults between the ages of 25 to 45 with a household income of 65K+ With a Bachelor degree and currently working. This is not for people looking for an academic program, this is for adults who want to discuss certain national problems, like education. The landing page is not University of Phoenix, is the publisher’s Vanity Fair. (Is this a Conde Nast effort using University of Phoenix as a partner or the other way around) Simple and stylish Offers a daily question that encourages public discussion
DEGREE VERSION: Website and landing page are very similar. Only difference is layout and presence on Faculty and School news. The ad looks somehow cheap and cluttered. Sometimes it can pass as an old style banner normally used by spam and online scams. The official website has a very clean look that we can associate with a young, up to date institution. The landing page is something in between website and banner: Is not interactive, looks boring. Gives information step by step. They don’t display all the information as they do on the website. The process ad – landing page is fluid and it makes sense Some who is interested in the UP and wants to find out about the University (and their identity) will Google it and the search results will direct them to the official website The ones that find the online ad attractive, might be because of the program offerings and the landing page provides information just about that.
