What can we learn from the world of advertising? That ads that are intrusive or annoying might stand out for most. But seriously: billions are spent each year, in every country of the world, online and offline – surely something has been learned that can have direct applicability to us?
Effective advertising shares a number of key attributes. Consider this advertising checklist:
All common sense, yet whenever we “advertise” our message, in proposals, presenteations, or even our resumes, our efforts rarely measure up. We become lazy, relying on boilerplate, memorized presentations, and content that is irrelevant at best.
It’s not just sales pitches that can be improved, but all of our communications: from simple emails, to blog posts, to group presentations, to complex proposals. This week, make sure that whatever you say or write catches the eye (or ear) of the audience. Before delivering it, run it through the advertising checklist first.
