  • 1. Know your target
    Research
    Studies, focus groups, friendly chat
    Discover their insights
    What and where they eat and drink, where they spend their free time, who are their role models, what magazine they read etc.
  • Did you know?
    From a choice of six role model types for a daughter respondents chose:
    life-saving doctor – 47%
    Nobel prize-winning scientist - 20%
    Olympic gold medalist – 14%
    Best-selling novelist – 9%
    5% of respondents chose a celebrity or pop star as a suitable role models for young girls*
    More than half of teenagers do not want a career - they just want to be famous. Asked the question "What would you like to do for your career?”, 54 per cent answered "Become a celebrity”**
    *Study by ICM for the Royal Society
    **A survey on 1032 16-years-old done in 2010 in UK
  • 2. Chose the right channel
    The right channel is the channel that your target uses, not the one you use.
  • Did you know?
    Top 10 magazines for teenagers include: Cheerleader, Girls’ Life Magazine, Seventeen, TeenVogue etc. (allyoucanread.com)
    The Daily Telegraph is Britain's biggest-selling quality daily newspaper, but readers between 15 and 24 are only 5% of total readership*, while most readers are 45+ which makes it a perfect channel if you target are… adults.

  • 3. Speak your target’s language
    The secret of all effective advertising is not the creation of new and tricky words and pictures, but one of putting familiar words and pictures into new relationships. (Leo Burnett)
    Use the words and style that your target uses, the images, characters and situations that are familiar to your target group.
