A commercial is a highly effective marketing medium because it is one of the most stimulating media. It is a dynamic presentation that satisfies our sense of sight and hearing and stimulates our limbic system (the part of the brain in charge of our emotions). With all of these factors done right, you can capture your audience.
In this article, we will be sharing the important aspects that your television or Internet commercial must have to make it kick-ass.
Mind you (and remember!) there is no absolute format or formula for the perfect kick-ass commercial. It does not even always need to have that Big Bang effect. It is different depending on your company or organization’s branding and what you want to say. But here are the essential factors to making that commercial that will make the people watch it twice.
Just like the recent video of the Volkswagen which bade farewell to the production of the famous Volkswagen Beetle cars after 81 years. This video, while not necessarily a commercial, evoked a strong sense of sadness, happiness, and most of all nostalgia among the people even if they have never owned this type of car in their lives.
In just over a minute and a half, it got people to well up. In five days, the video has over a million views on Youtube alone, not counting the views on their Facebook page. While the video was to bid farewell the production of the Beetle car, this has certainly raised excitement among the people on what Volkswagen will be producing in the next years.
A message that is clear is a simple call of action. After watching this video, what kind of action do you want the viewers to take? Do you want them to check your website? Buy a bag of chips from the nearest convenience store? Or do you want them to remember this particular product?
To convey the emotion and send the message across to your audience, a high-quality visual presentation is a must. It is said that our visual communication is the most effective way of passing information, because the human mind mostly processes things in images. So if you are going for a live commercial, this means that you will not be using animations, so you need a good camera team to set your visual communication in place.
