What do advertisers want?

Seth Godin Blog

Advertisers (mostly) want mass. It's also the trend, and advertisers love trends. The march toward data has been going on since the early online days, at least 1999, the dawn of internet advertising, because the internet can't be a mass medium. In this week's Akimbo , I talk about being there at the beginning of the surveillance race, as well as the option that advertisers and the public can (surprisingly) agree on: limits.

The "Beauty" Behind False Advertising

Think Customers

But advertisers continue to disseminate messaging that promises to solve everyone's self-esteem issues with one magical miracle product.

Strategy+Business

Three kinds of advertising

Seth Godin Blog

Google''s business is driven by direct response advertising. This is old school advertising, the first kind that appeared on TV. This is advertising that tells a story, advertising about belief, not necessarily action. Direct response ads pay for themselves (at least they do when they work). Socially acceptable paid-for interruption leads to response, and the response (a sale, generally) generates revenue and you can run the ad again.

The imbalance between media and advertisers

Seth Godin Blog

And that means that if a consumer sees an ad on platform A vs. platform B, the advertiser doesn’t really care. For a very long time, major magazines and TV networks were very strict about the ads that they would run. The format, content and impact of an ad had to be approved before it showed up on network TV or The New Yorker. There weren’t many good places to run ads, so the media companies had the power.

American Airlines doesn't know what to say. And they're having a lot of trouble saying it. And so, they hired a fancy ad agency and started to run full-page, two-sided, glossy inserts in newspapers. The single ad I'm looking at cost at least $100,000.
