Constructing Business Advertisements

What many may consider the most important part of advertising is writing an effective ad. The information provided in a classified ad may be the deciding factor if it is successful or a, "bomb". In addition, there are three important angles to consider when writing business advertisements.

Choosing the angle of your advertising may vary depending on what is offered. Writing a business Ad is not much different than writing an essay, with the exception of a literary work. Here are three well known angles to utilize when constructing a business advertisement.

Expressive Advertisements

An expressive advertisement is very personal. Expressive ads may be a good idea for a small business wanting to utilize a personal approach. Think of writing an excerpt of the day in a journal. As the writer of the advertisement, express personal feelings, thoughts, or opinions related to the offerings. For example, a Business Opportunity may be advertised as, "I made over $100,000.00 in one year. I cannot believe how easy it was". This eliminates the need to use examples or testimonials, as the author becomes the example.

Persuasive Advertisements

A persuasive advertisement is used to convince the reader or change their opinion. To be successful with a persuasive ad, the writer needs to have a firm, direct, and clear point. The goal is to evoke a reaction that causes the reader to have the same point-of-view.

A common form of advertising, using a Persuasive approach, is the Governments, "Register to Vote," advertisements. They generally are direct and to the point. They provide a concise reason why the reader should register to vote, "Make your voice heard". By pointing out a simple benefit, they are achieving the task of persuasion.

Informative Advertisements

Informative advertisements provide detailed information. They explain all the details of a product or service. When constructing such an advertisement, the author should demonstrate observations, ideas, facts, statistics, or research data.

This is becoming common on the internet, as consumers are noticeably, "information hungry". Consumers want to know what they are buying. In addition, this is a wise choice if consumers cannot physically see the item for sale.

An example of Informative Advertising is an Auto Manufactures advertisement for their vehicles (Not Dealerships). They generally print large advertisements that inform readers of the Vehicles Engine Horsepower, Torque, Maintenance Schedule, Improvements from prior models, available colors, Wheelbase, seating, trunk size, etc... All the information is based on facts and research. It allows consumers to compare their vehicles to similar Models, prior to taking a test drive.

With some thought and planning, an advertiser can present their information with an angle that sells. It takes monitoring, trial and error, and careful construction. Clearly indicate the next step by including a call to action. If the audience does not recognize an ordering process, it is likely the advertisement will not produce results.
