Humor in Advertising
Humor can be a great marketing
tool, but be careful, not everyone thinks the same things are funny. What seems
funny to one may be offensive to another.
Most people enjoy funny
television commercials, and during the Super Bowl funny commercials become a
second attraction. However, the same commercial in print may not come across as
humorous. Each medium offers it self to a different type of humor and it is
important that we keep this in mind as we develop our advertising.
humorous comic may illustrate a point on your website but it may be difficult to
translate that humor to radio. The tone or inflection in the voice of a radio or
television announcer may create a humorous atmosphere that simply can’t be
captured in print. To avoid problems, Ads should be tested before they are shown
to the public.
Large marketing firms often test ads and promotions with
focus groups to test their effectiveness before beginning a broader campaign. A
focus group can offer their feelings and perceptions regarding an ad and help
avert marketing mistakes. Friends and family members can take the place of a
focus group but be sure to explain why you are asking them to review your ad so
they don’t try to spare your feelings.
Always view attempts at using
humor in your marketing with a critical eye, if the viewer doesn't thinks it's
funny we should be certain that at least it can't be seen as offensive.
