7 Golden Rules for Writing Effective Ads

Ads are an integral part of marketing. Ads are the first touch point between a business and a potential customer. Writing an effective ad is an art and a science. A good ad is a result of understanding of the target customers, creativity from the ad copywriter and most importantly, the ad man needs to understand the fundamentals of advertising.

Having a strong foundation in advertising is an asset for any marketer or businessman. To build a strong foundation in the fundamentals of advertising we need to look at history.

Advertising came into existence when there was a possibility of sending the same message to multiple people at once – using technology. The first form of this technology was printing press. Then came the radio, then the TV and then the internet.

The mass media revolution is what has given birth to the concept of advertising. Before that, the only way was to sell at a market place or sell door to door.

HighTraffic Summit™ Bangalore: Transparency Report

I have always loved going through financial reports of other businesses and entrepreneurs. And I have a huge respect for people who are transparent. Sometimes, it is better to be transparent, especially when you have critics. Being transparent builds a strong brand. In fact, public companies cannot operate without transparency in accounting – so let’s say I am building that habit from now!

So as a first time exercise, I decided to release a financial report for my HighTraffic Summit™ powered by ResellerClub which was conducted in Bangalore on February 24th.

I was motivated to do this report because I got a lot of replies saying that the ticket price is too high and I should be charging less and I should do the event at a cheaper venue.

It is a mammoth task to do an event successfully because there are so many moving parts. There are so many things that have a potential to go wrong. The mic could stop working, the lights could go off, the food won’t be prepared on time and there are 100 such things. All that headache is removed when you do it at a good venue and get a reliable event management company.
