ADVERTISING
“Advertising presents the most persuasive
possible selling message to the right
prospects for the product or service at the
lowest possible cost.”
– The Institute of Practitioners in Advertising
REPUTATION:
“Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly
be possessed of – for credit is like fire; when once you have
kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once
extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it
again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavour
to be what you desire to appear.”
Source: Socrates (469 BC – 399 BC)
SOME KEY CONSIDERATIONS
• Reputation is everything.
• People only buy from companies they like.
• They need to know you to like you.
THE REPUTATION PREMIUM
• Over half (58%) of consumers will pay a premium to the
company they believe has the best reputation (CBI
survey)
• 43% will pay a 5% premium
• 29% will pay a 6-10% premium
• 16% will pay a 10% premium
Source: CBI Survey 2008

Editor's Notes

  1. 'Organisation' can be a government body, a business, a profession, a public service or a body concerned with health, culture, education - indeed any corporate or voluntary body large or small. 'Publics' are audiences that are important to the organisation. They include customers - existing and potential; employees and management; investors; media; government; suppliers; opinion-formers.'Understanding' is a two-way process. To be effective, an organisation needs to listen to the opinions of those with whom it deals and not solely provide information. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT? REPUTATION FTSE 100 valued £842bn (1998) of which goodwill accounted for 71%. Compare 1988 only 44%.

  3. FREDDIE STARR STORY Clifford made his name in the UK for his role with client Freddie Starr in one of the most famous British tabloid newspaper headlines of all time. On 13 March 1986 The Sun carried as its main headline: FREDDIE STARR ATE MY HAMSTER. According to the story, Starr had been staying at the home of Vince McCaffrey and his 23-year old girlfriend Lea La Salle in Birchwood, Cheshire when the incident took place. Starr was claimed to allegedly returned home from a performance at a Manchester nightclub in the small hours of the morning and demanded that Lea La Salle make him a sandwich. When she refused, he went into the kitchen and put her pet hamster Supersonic between two slices of bread and proceeded to eat it. This, in more recent times, has been rebutted by Starr, who however in interviews has admitted to the fact that it was very much a much-needed publicity coup, if not factually correct. OJ SIMPSON Orenthal James Simpson (born July 9, 1947, San Francisco, California), publicly known by his initials as O. J., and nicknamed The Juice, is a former college and professional football player and film actor. Although considered one of the greatest running backs of all time, Simpson is most recognizable for being charged with the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994. He was acquitted in criminal court in 1995 after a lengthy, highly publicized trial (often called the "Trial of the Century"). Later, in 1997, Simpson was found liable for their deaths in civil court.
