In our day to day we are surrounded by advertising campaigns. If you have a company, whether large or SME, then we are going to show you what steps you have to follow to create an advertising campaign yourself.
The first and most important thing is to define what objective you want to achieve with the advertising campaign. It is important that it be something specific , because if it is something too general, the message will be dispersed and you will not be able to reach your goal.
Also, you will need to quantify it . Setting a numerical goal will allow you to assess whether the campaign has been done well and will serve as a guide to know if you are on the right track. Remember that the goal must be realistic and take into account your strengths and weaknesses.
The next step is to establish the target you want to target. In this phase, you must define what type of public you want to reach, who your potential clients are (men, women, young people, adults, children…), if you want to reach people who live in a specific geographical area, etc.
Then, you must select the advertising medium based on the previous points and the budget you have. The more you adjust the medium and the public to which your product or service is directed, the more possibilities you will have to reach your objective. For this, it can be very useful for you to carry out a market study , which allows you to know the current real situation of the sector as well as your competition.
Once you have defined the previous steps, you must create the message, whether it is a television spot, a radio spot, messages on social networks, an insertion in a printed or online medium, billboards in the streets, etc. As you can see, the possibilities are multiple. You must establish a claim or phrase that defines the qualities of your product or service, that is simple and at the same time attractive to your audience.
When you have all these points clear, it is time to launch your advertising campaign in the selected media. Set a start and end date, as well as the frequency of appearance or the place where you want it to appear.
Once your advertising campaign is over, you must evaluate the results obtained based on the objectives you set at the beginning. This will be very helpful when planning the next campaign.
