Communication in ads

Topic: General


April 25, 2016


My name is Robin and I'm French student in KEDGE BS in Marseille.

I'm really interested in communication and I would like to work in communication when I will be graduated.

I would like to have your opinion about two questions that I ask myself.

What are the components to succeed in communication and ads campaigns ?

How do consumer perceive ads and company communication ?

I would like to have a professional opinion that's why I contact you.

Hope to hear from you soon and I wish you a good day.

PS : Sorry If I have a bad english.

Thank you.


Robin - France



Ideally, an ad campaign is aimed at a specific audience, where you know their interests. Unfortunately, too many ad campaigns have no focus.

It is good to use the AIDA formula in ads. That is: get Attention, create Interest, encourage Desire for the product, and then have a call to Action.

Some ads can be appealing to the consumer, especially if they give useful information, or at the least are entertaining. However, I see so many ads and commercials on television where I am not sure what they are selling. That is annoying and wastes my time.

think of the ads and commercials you have seen and consider your opinion of their effectiveness.

I hope these ideas help. Best wishes for success in your studies.

Communication model

"no communication model is self-sufficient' may you discuss this!

Enock - Tanzania



A communication model is an effort to explain the components and factors in human communication. In some situations, the communication may require components not stated in the given model. Also, both the sender and receiver of the communication need to be clear about what they would like to discuss.

You may need to use a specific model for a specific case.

I hope this helps. Best wishes for success in your studies.

Feeling stressed and doesn't want to talk

Topic: General


April 6, 2015

what should i do when stressed and doesn't feel like talking?

what is the best thing to do to prevent quarreling?

Rosemary - Kenya



Many people get stressed out for one reason or another. It is good to take a break from what you are doing and just try to relax. Sometimes taking several deep breaths will help reduce the stress.

However, if you are stressed and someone expects you to talk, you can just politely say that you would prefer not to talk at this time. Usually other people want to talk, so you could simply ask a question and let the other person do the talking.

Quarreling usually starts with a disagreement about something. You can express your views once, but if you see it will start to become an argument, it is best to deflect the discussion to something else. For example, if someone wants to argue about politics, you might deflect the conversation to talking about your sports team.

But it is difficult to avoid losing your temper in a quarrel. Ask yourself, "Is this really worth getting angry about?" Often you can lose a friend over a silly quarrel.

Is slang like a verbal virus?

Topic: General


October 19, 2014

Are slangs also considered as verbal viruses?

Eudu - Uganda



The expression "verbal virus" is actually a slang expression. Verbal virus really means a meaningless filler word--such as "um" or "ah"--that a person will habitually use.

Slang is an informal expression that a group of people may often use.

Why is effective communication important?

Topic: General


March 15, 2014

why effective communication is the key to personal and career success?

Linny - New Guinea



In your personal life, being able to express yourself, as well as to listen to others, is important in establishing good relationships. This includes verbal communication, writing, and even texting.

Likewise in your career, you want to be able to understand what is required, as well as to communicate to your supervisors about the work you are doing. This makes a good impression and helps your career.

Why is communication important for success?

Topic: General


April 22, 2013

Why is effective communication important for success in life?

Paras - India



Communication that is ineffective means that the other person will not understand what you are trying to say or may be confused by your words.

For example, a supervisor who does not effectively communicate directions can end up in the wrong things being done.

Likewise, if you seek a promotion at work but are ineffective in expressing your goal, the job may go to someone else.

You need clear and effective communication to more forward in life.

Confused how communication is critical

Topic: General


April 18, 2012

GoodGood day i am confused in this question (communication is critical in the presentation and acceptance oc total quality management).

Thapelo - India



If you have a proposal about how to improve a company through the use of TQM, you need to be able to clearly explain it to your management. Also, if you are implementing TQM in the company, you need to clearly communicate the benefits and actions take to the workers.

People need to understand the subject and the concepts stated. Otherwise they will simply ignore you.
