“Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half!” – John Wannamaker

It’s a very famous quote, and a founding principle behind Concept’s TV Advertising.  We’ve spent many thousands in the development of CAIT Analytics – a powerful tool to determine and understand the real value of TV advertising.  But you don’t need to look too far to see how TV compares with other mediums.

Does that mean TV advertising is better than social advertising?

We encourage a cross marketing strategy via a well thought out marketing mix.  It is important that people are able to find you on social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter – and that you deploy a brand-consistent strategy throughout.  At Concept, we enjoy a strong digital presence.  However, when it comes to the medium of choice at the heart of your marketing, we know TV advertising is where it should begin.

In terms of raw cost per view, there is a startling difference between a digital medium such as Facebook and some of the rates available in TV advertising.  With the figures below, it’s not hard to decide where to place the lion’s share of marketing spend…

As an example of the significant difference in costs between Facebook and TV Advertising :

Concept TV have launched the new TV Advertising Campaign for the Morphy Richards 9-in-1 Steam Cleaner.

Following some filming at a stunning location in the Cotswolds, Concept TV fired off  the new TV Advertising Campaign to support the Launch of the new 9-in-1 Steam Cleaner from Morphy Richards.

“We wanted to do something a bit different with this ad.” says Concept TV’s Director, Paul Emerton.  “Like other ads, we like to get our hands on the product before we start the creative process.  It’s about understanding the product from a consumer perspective, which leads to a better communication.  Our production team took the new Steam Cleaner home to put it though it’s paces.  At it really delivered”.

About the TV Advertising

The ad demonstrates real-life scenarios – and all the visuals are real.  It was important to show real mud on the floors and the real dirt you’d get in places like bathrooms and kitchens.  The actors stepped up to the job and really “mucked” in to deliver an authentic creative.  This included stomping around in the mud outside the location during the footprint scene.  Paul recounts “it wasn’t the warmest of days, being shot in February, but our talent and crew were on the ball”.

The campaign launched onto screen across the UK from the 25th March with a national TV Advertising campaign.

TV Advertising – its not just about TV…

When is TV Advertising not just about advertising on TV?

As a company that serves a broad range of clients – both in terms of proposition and size, we are in the fortunate position of being able to be involved in some very interesting projects.  Some of our most rewarding times involve collaborations in activity with synergistic goals.

TV Advertising is a promotional tool within the Marketing Mix.

TV Advertising can be one Communication or Promotion component within the Marketing Mix.  Our intentions are not to teach you to suck eggs here – but its surprising how often TV Advertising is considered independently of all other activities.  Like other promotional or communication tools available, TV Advertising will deliver increased results if its message is echoed across other mediums.

How can we promote our TV Advertising?

In most cases, TV Advertising will be the flagship component of any marketing strategy.  and it is likely that you have allocated the largest proportion of your marketing budget to it.  So what options exist that will increase exposure and perception values?

  • Use Social Media.  If you’ve built a good quality base of fans and followers in your social media circles, they are likely to be interested in seeing your TV advert.  Communicate via social posts just prior to the launch (if commercial sensitivity agenda allows) stating that you are about to begin TV advertising.  If commercial sensitivity prohibits pre-launch disclosure, make sure you post on the day the TV Advertising schedule starts.  Upload your TV ad to both YouTube and social media sites directly – such as Facebook.  In all cases, apply your usual social media rules when engaging with fans and followers.
  • Inform your stakeholders.  Some of the TV Advertising done for our clients at Concept is planned as a communication of confidence to stakeholders.  A re-enforced message helps strengthen the relationship between parties and defines commitment to a project.  As such, if it is possible to do so, it is a fantastic idea to communicate your strategies prior to launch.  In some cases, stakeholders may wish to contribute to your activity; for example, they may be a retailer stocking your product that wishes to include their logo in your ad – or display the ad on screens in-store.  Collaborative efforts aid better results!  Your stakeholders may also wish to refer or feature your TV Advertising in their communications which further extends its potential reach.
  • Engagement via product packaging.  A simple QR Code or NFC tag on packaging will allow prospective customers to view the latest TV ad featuring the product.  More and more people are choosing to ‘scan’ products, articles and adverts, wishing to engage further with your proposition.  You should direct consumers to a controllable page on your website and embed a YouTube video within the page (this approach ensures that you stay in control of what your customers see and enables you to react in the case of ASA actions).
  • Promotion via other advertising.  A QR code or short URL could be presented in press and outdoor advertising that links in the same way suggested via product packaging.  Of course, when using QR Codes or NFC, ensure you can track responses from individual placements.
  • Support your TV commercial via other advertising mediums.Next, the major fashion highstreet retailer, ran a TV ad promoting their late delivery service where consumers could order a product upto 9pm that day and still have it delivered the following day!  The company then also ran a radio ad in which two ladies discussed the TV ad – one saying how she had seen the a TV ad, the other listening and enthusing.  Although not a Concept TV ad, we though this was a brilliant use of communication and re-enforcement strategy that was likely to increase exposure and perception.

When advertising on TV – don’t forget…

The above options are only a few of the different cross-promotional tools available.  When embracing TV Advertising, think about how you can increase its chances of success with other routes of communication that you have access to.
