In advertising, there is always something more than meets the eye. People are bombarded with so many messages per day that it becomes necessary to make your voice heard and your product sold. But there is something else to the argument. Something that may be difficult to see from an advertisers perspective.
And that is, because people are given so much sensory processing, that it becomes necessary for them to begin to be wary of any advertisement period. Sometimes the best thing that an advertiser can do is know when to rein it in.
How to do this
It stands to reason that even if you are trying to be lest heavy handed about your advertising approach that you would advertise less, right? The answer to this is no. Advertising less will simply mean that you have fewer chances to reach your audience through all of the advertising clutter they have to navigate every day.
It means changing the nature of you ads to be something more peaceful, more thoughtful than loud, something that makes them want to pay attention rather than being forced to. In this way, it becomes much easier to maximize the influence of your advertisements rather than contributing to the noise that people have to experience daily.
Today, the average consumer is much more savvy and immune to the effects of advertising. In order to captivate your target audience, it becomes necessary to develop advertisements that speak to their intellectual self rather than their consumer self.
