Every seller on the planet knows the term psychology in advertising; if they don’t their advertising agencies must have this psychological knowledge in hand. Every product in market is not useful to the consumer, but their advertisement with sentiment and humor make consumer to build a use of that product in their life.

There are some terms of psychology.

Humor

Well, every one of us like to laugh and it is very good thing. But have you ever notice that the bad product uses the most amount of humor to sell their product. We have seen the advertisement of chewing gum or chocolates which have a plenty of humor that we remember them because of their humorous ad not for the quality of their product.

 

Anthropomorphism  

This is the psychological term of giving animal or any non-human object a human characteristic. When we see any animal that expresses human emotion easily and behave very smart. We love to see that and we actually love it, but have we realized how much training or suffering that creature has to through!?

 

Insecurity

They make us to feel self-doubt by injecting inadequate qualities in our mind. Most of the cosmetic brand uses this notorious psychology to make us buy their product and complete our self, using Photoshop for their model in advertisement.  

 

Reverse psychology

It involves influencing consumer to do what you want by pretending not to want it. Patagonia applied this concept to their print ad declaring, “Don’t buy this jacket”, which of course worked in reverse on the public.

 

Rebates

Fifty percent less is the best misinterpretation of any advertisement.You must aware of that unfilled rebates go back to the manufacturer and clearing house

 

Social proof

 Tech shows on T.V. and reviews of the product in newspaper or in online blog are the best way to sell. They know that we value the consumer feedback much than ours own. Companies know this, and that is why they use LIKES and UPVOTES for advertisement of their product.

 

Fear

This is the edge of tactics which is used to consumer like “kya aapke tooth pest me namak hai…?”, “kya aapako pata hai…?”Or “use clinically proven lotion, shampoo or medicine” etc…

 

Pseudoscience

Cosmetic industry many time claims that they can repair DNA damage repair your cell in no time. They claim to rejuvenate the cell and turn back the clock.

 

Sexuality

It is a major area of moral concern. A scientific reason, when we see someone attractive our body releases hormones and our minds subconsciously connect with the feeling to product.  

 

 

Misleading visuals

Technologies like visual effect and graphics shows the different ad than the reality. Fast food ad, cold drinks, ice-cream, beautiful body images are shown to us like never seen before which really as fake as hell artificial.  Using potatoes instead of ice-cream and spraying food with colors or use the Photoshop to make the model perfect. Misleading visuals are the worst thing of all which damages the psychology of most probably of children.

 

 

There are many more psychological tactics which is used by many brands to promote their product. Feelings, nostalgia, cute faces, hot models and others as well. Try to spot it!

Bas 2-Minute… Maggi Noodles rise and down!

"What Xerox is to photocopier and Colgate to toothpaste, Maggi is to noodles in India."  A two minute made food has become one of the most popular brands in India. Have fall down after 33 years journey!

History

A major FMCG company in the country and a subsidiary of the Switzerland-based Nestlé Group known as Nestlé India Ltd. (NIL) started Maggi Noodles in 1982, which has rapidly changed the traditional food habits of Indian children.

During the 1990s, the sales of Maggi noodles declined, and this was attributed partly to the growing popularity of Top Ramen , another instant noodles product. In order to improve sales and attract more consumers, NIL changed the formulation of Maggi noodles in 1997. However, this proved to be a mistake, as consumers did not like the taste of the new noodles. In March 1999, NIL reintroduced the old formulation of the noodles, after which the sales revived. Over the years, NIL also introduced several other products like soups and cooking aids under the Maggi brand. 

In the early 2000s, Maggi was the leader in the branded instant noodles segment. In 2005 Vegetable Atta Noodles a 'healthy' instant noodles product made of whole wheat flour and vegetables (instead of refined flour) Over the years, NIL also introduced several other products like soups and cooking aids under the Maggi brand.

Amitabh-maggi

Advertising Campaign

NIL positioned Maggi as a 'fun' food for kids which mothers could prepare easily. Taglines like 'Mummy, bhookh lagi hai' (Mom, I'm hungry), 'Bas 2-Minute,' (Only 2 minutes) and 'Fast to Cook Good to Eat' effectively communicated the product's benefits to target consumers.

Reason for No. 1

Maggi

Major reason like distribution network, flavor, price, healthy  are suited to Indians…

  1. When Nestle launched Maggi in 1982 in India, Indians were reluctant to go for instant food. They targeted the right segment for this which was the major factor in deciding its success.
  2. Nestle targeted kids. They were the ones who were ready to accept a tasty food, compared to older people who were still reluctant. It appealed to kids because of  two reasons – distinguished taste and two minutes factor. Simple. There was not much competition around. It clicked. Kids who were growing up at that stage would one day become their loyal customers, Nestle knew that.

  3. Nestle promoted working women concept in India during 1980s. This was a wonderful strategy to promote their own product. As housewives moved to the offices, they earned more money but had lesser time. So the idea of instant food was spreading.

  4. Nestle marketed Maggi not as the main food item but as a snack in the evening, that too for the kids. They knew they cannot compete in the main food items. But the snacks market had a huge scope in India at that point of time.

  5. Nestle kept it simple. They didn't do many experiments with the taste part of Maggi. They knew it was addictive. 

  6. They accepted the challenge when in the last few years, increasing concern of health was getting prevalent among the Indians. Nestle just at the right time, came up with the concept of Taste Bhi-Health Bhi…that kept them in the market. Had any other product taken advantage of health factor, they would have faced severe challenge.

  7.  

    More than anything else it's the Maggi Brand that Nestle has created. Players like Top Ramen had existed even before Maggi. But Top Ramen could never connect to the common man as Maggi did (like Coke), despite the fact that Top Ramen actually tastes nice. Bottomline is, marketing does matter.

     

Fall down…

nstant noodles also have chemicals, just like other processed foods do.

Maggi 2-minute noodles in India contains hydrolysed groundnut protein, It contains MSG (Monosodium glutamate) used as a flavor enhancer, which is made using Bactosoytone, itself made from soy protein using a catalyst enzyme porcine (taken from intestine of Pig) Hydrolysed vegetable protein can contain high levels of glutamate, but still mentions “NO ADDED MSG” on the pack.. According to the United States FDA, this practice is misleading to consumers, as hydrolysed protein leads to formation of monosodium glutamate MSG after cooking.

On May 11, the regulator — the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) — had issued a note alongside a set of ‘Comprehensive Scheme and Guidelines on Product Approvals’, in which its CEO YS Malik made a pointed reference to the “industry’s anguish” on the “highly contentious issue of product approvals.

Nestle case has now reached the Bombay High Court, it holds in balance the fate of what is perhaps the country’s fastest-growing sunrise sector — the processed food industry — and the debate on whether the regulations governing this sector, and the regulatory apparatus itself, have failed to keep pace.

The battle lines were drawn well before the country’s food regulator passed its June 5 order that imposed a country-wide ban on Nestle India’s Maggi noodles.

May good time ahead for Maggi and Maggi noodles lover, right now a big vacuum for instant food makers…

Advertising in India : History 

As per report Indian’s buying capacity has a large potential and it’s still growing. Marketing mix on its pick, though advertising has flooded. More than 5000 Thousand Crore advertising business has made this industry one of the biggest industries today.

But some day it was zero and it was born less. Let’s back to the history and find some evolution phase.

Advertising history began with classified advertising. Ads started appearing for the first time in print in Hickey’s Bengal Gazette which was India’s first newspaper. Major advertisers during that time were retailers like Spencer’s, Army & Navy and White away and Laidlaw.

B Dattaram and Co. claims to be the oldest existing Indian agency in Mumbai which was started in 1902. Later, Indian ad agencies were slowly established and they started entering foreign owned ad agencies. Ogilvy and Mater and Hindustan Thompson Associate agencies were formed in the early 1920s. In 1939, Lever’s advertising department launched Dalda – the first major example of a brand and a marketing campaign specifically developed for India.

In the 1950s, various advertising associations were set up to safeguard the interests of various advertisers in the industry.  It was the decade when Indian advertising took baby steps in creativity. Indian advertising began to do creative work in India. Earlier, most creative work would be done out of Fleet Street.

Ín 1960s, it was decade of professionalism in the advertising industry as advertising agencies and clients established long-term relationships. The 60s saw the birth of the 'utterly butterly delicious' campaign of Amul. In 1970s, The Decade Advertising became more scientific as National readership Survey (NRS) happened and MBAs from B-schools were hired for client servicing roles.

In 1967, the first commercial was aired on Vividh Bharati and later in 1978; the first television commercial was seen. After the colour telecast of Asiad games 1980s, television took off in India. The golden age of Indian advertising had just begun.

1990 India liberalized. Global brands entered in to India. Advertising agency has widen up their strength. Later electronic media became stronger and stronger. Today more than 500 channels on air and broadcasting 24 hours and of course advertising taking about 33% of it!

2005s time has open up new media called Web or Internet. Today only in India internet marketing budget  is more than 3000 crore! Also smart mobile has covers rest.

From journey 1902 to 2015 is more than a hundred years shown us advertising is everything. We watch it, think it and follow it. It’s an amazing journey of Indian advertising industry.

Advertisement and Copy writing

Well, to advertise means to promote or to selling the thing, ideas or products. It should be in a way to fulfill the target. Simply it should be your magic wind if it works it will turn in to positive result, Simple.

So copywriting is an art, science, sociology, psychology and commerce all mix. Who can have the power to understand the product, target and medium they can have chances to win.

Copy can take many forms, be it a slogan, tagline, headline, letter, script, white-paper – and with these different situations there come many rules and guidelines a copywriter has to be mindful of.

Here are few key elements of copywriting to be a successful copy writer…

  •  Audience

Who will read the copy? What are their likes, priorities, worries and dreams? What situation will they be in when they read the copy?

  • Features

What does the product or service do? How does it work? What is new, different or unique about it?

  • Aim

If we talk about print medium advertising followed with caption or tagline, second part is body.

The tag line or caption must be easy, catchy and unique, which grabs the attention of readers.  Rest of the thing depends on picture, model or product itself. Remaining descriptive part is body should be enhancing the thing and short and sweet. Finally contact detail in a nutshell.

Women in Advertising: Good, Bad & Ugly

As we know, advertising is the foundation and economic lifeblood of the mass media. The primary purpose of the mass media is to deliver an audience to advertisers, just as the primary purpose of television programs is to deliver an audience for commercials.
As a viewer, we are surrounded by thousand of advertising from different medium every day, how would be an advertiser get satisfied about their goal? How to get an impression in viewers or mind ?
The advertiser has to pay lot of thing to get only attention, n not the guarantee of business. Product gets sold not only by an advertisement but its quality and price is matter.
But main thing how to attract and get attention, here human (men’s) psychology comes and ad-makers use it from the beginning. As we know human interest is in opposite sex or women. So men or women both attract if there is women before anything. So media and advertisers always uses this weaker point of entire human being.
We often found lots of advertising there are no relevance of women at all. One more thing is women has also an objection as they have been using in advertising unnecessary or improperly. Degrading women’s is unfavorable. But this discussion is endless.
People love and want women in everywhere then why not in advertisement. If they presented properly and in decent manner than there should be no objection women shouldn’t have.
Women should get benefits from it and proud to be a most important saleable part of billion dollar economics. There are in India a private body ASCI monitoring it and any one can complain against that advertisement if found women guilty.

Good Side :
• More viewers more selling
• Job for women
• Part of growing economy

Bad Side :
• Unnecessary utilization
• Bad impact
• Mislead
• Wrong way to marketing
• Wrong message for kid and teenager

Ugly side :
• Waste of Money
• Women’s disrespect
• Immatureness of society

Generally in western country women’s are equally treated and getting respects for everything. Self employed is important for them. Getting paid for what they have. New era and dimension for them. Its their hole and sole decision to be a part of media industry or not, weather it is good, bad or ugly!!!
Lets have some example…

Advertising means to attract, involves and making think about your product or services. It’s all about physiology and art of publishing it. To grab the attention of viewers, the first rule is to show something which is connected with them majority.

So the person who is presenting in advertising if they are film stars or sportsmen or specially cricketers than attention part will be succeeding, because stars and cricketers are always in their mind and well known faces. Also they have some image and attraction point. If there is a woman then its impact becomes double!
