Most marketers using Lasswell’s model of communication from World War II • In his 1948 article, The Structure and Function of Communication in Society, Professor Harold Lasswell wrote that “a convenient way to describe an act of communication is to answer the following questions: – Who – Says What – In Which Channel – To Whom – With What Effect?” Source: Harold Lasswell, Director of War Communication Research, US Library of Congress, 1939-45
  • 4. Most agencies aren’t measuring the outcome or effect of communication • In the late 1980s, my father was the director of marketing at Oldsmobile. • He launched the classic ad campaign, “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile.” • But sales fell from 900,000 in 1987 before the campaign to under 450,000 in 1991. • So, he asked his ad agency, Leo Burnett, how they were measuring the ad campaign. • “GRPs”, they replied. • Dad asked, “How many GRPs do we need to sell a car?” Source: Greg Jarboe, YouTube and Video Marketing: An Hour a Day, First Edition, August 2009
