Advertising Is an Art—and a Science

IMG_0799.JPG

William Bernbach, one of the giants of American advertising in the 1960s and 1970s (the period-piece TV show Mad Men often refers to him), famously said of his profession, “Advertising is fundamentally persuasion and persuasion happens to be not a science, but an art.”

That may still be true. But the case for advertising as a science is surely getting stronger. This month’s Spotlight on the Future of Advertising takes a look at the industry’s dramatic transformation and highlights some of the approaches and campaigns that have been most successful.

The biggest change, of course, is the explosion of data now available to advertisers as they try to connect with consumers across a multitude of platforms. The big question: How do managers make sense of all those metrics?

In “Advertising Analytics 2.0,” Wes Nichols, cofounder of MarketShare, shows how firms can craft strategies that use new mathematical modeling to generate more sales. Companies, he says, now can achieve a far more sophisticated understanding of how their messages touch consumers, and can change their strategies, if necessary, on the fly. Getting it right can mean lifting marketing performance by as much as 30%.

In an accompanying piece, Jeffrey Rayport, managing partner of digital strategy firm MarketspaceNext, explains what companies need to do to get their message heard in an era where interruption and repetition are no longer effective. And Sunil Gupta, of Harvard Business School, demonstrates how top marketers are mastering the smartphone—not with tiny ads, which no one seems to like or even notice, but with apps that provide customers with real value.

And be sure to look at our review of recent ad campaigns that truly stand out. Bernbach would no doubt be impressed. “[I]t would be easy to conclude that advertising has flipped to all science and no art,” writes HBR’s Julia Kirby. “But then along comes fresh creative to show us what really sells.”

God’s Canvass That Is Katrina

Katrina, may God’s canvass that you are, be filled with the vibrance of the all his universe. Featured Image -- 1895Sharing our page which you can fill in so we can both monitor how we are doing in terms of learning. http://wp.me/P4Olw5-ng

Your piece of work

God and his blank canvass

 that I have reblogged can be worked into several intelligences which I am directing you (in the table) to accomplish:

Course Requirements and Assessment
What have I done to develop my Multiple Intelligences in Relation to Science?
EXAMS 10% PROJECTS 90% 3 done as individual. 1 with family. 1 with neighbor. 1 with churchmate. 1 with classmate. 1 with countryman. 1 with foreigner (among these 5 done with science majors, 4 done with non-science majors)
Musical-Rythmic and Harmonic 10% you can record your voice reciting the poem and mix it with music. (Better if the music is original). You can upload it as audio.
Visual – Spatial 10% you can make a video. For the video, I think it will work if you video yourself painting the images you describe. Dramatizing the scenes like waking up, reading a science book, observing nature etc. The painting is another output. The painting can be scanned and you can layout the text and make it a photo quote.
Verbal – Linguistic 10%  This poem / prayer
Logical – Mathematical 10%  Record your budget for this project and you can post about this too.
Bodily – Kinesthetic 10%  performing in the video both to dramatise and to paint the art works
Interpersonal 10%  you will have to solicit the help of a friend for this project and you can take note of your interpersonal interactions
Intrapersonal 10%  take note of the learning process as you do this project.
Naturalistic 10%  your poem touches on nature and so video the actual nature that you are taking care of. Do you have a garden, a pet? They can be the ones that you include in your video
Existential 10% your poem prayer touches much on human existence as canvass.

Engines of Commerce

We are all a blank canvass,

I am a canvass, you are a canvass.

Every morning is a blank one,

we fill it with different hues of color.

Different techniques to make it unique.

God used his mind and eyes

to paint galaxies and skies.

We used our experiences and stories

to paint our life and ideas.

The palette we use defines who we are.

Dark colors for a bad day,

bright ones for a happiness.

Make every day worth it,

and don’t regret every stroke.

But just look closely, just closely.

We are all just stars in the universe

that God created and molded.

Waiting for the right time

to finally burst in the universe.

To finally, leave our mark

in the world He created.

Outbreak (Warner Bros. 1995)

Outbreak Movie Poster

“While Surfing: On the Ebola Virus” by Hannah Ledesma reminded me to share the movie, Outbreak (Warner Bros. 1995) which dramatizes the possible medical emergency scenario caused by Ebola Virus.

While watching, try to situate yourself in this scenario:

Who are you in this event? How will you act?

As an advertising student with 6 units of science courses, what do you do to make use of this Advertising and Science Education?

Embedding the video found by co-author “While Surfing: On the Ebola Virus”

NS102 with Hama

Following the recent global anxiety about great mortality rates of citizens in west Africa, several Youtube channels have covered this story with the intent to educate and inform the rest of the world on this dangerous albeit unfamiliar disease.

 

While surfing one of my favourite science channels, SciShow, I saw this video summarizing the Ebola virus’ casualties, a synopsis of its history, transmission and the current state in Africa. The link below will lead you to the video.

  • Coined “Ebola” because of its place origin, the Ebola river
