Ads to Icons

The second edition of Ads to Icons examines current and future trends in advertising. Through 50 updated international case studies of new and iconic advertising campaigns, author Paul Springer identifies why they were successful and analyses their contribution to the continued development of advertising.

The growing potential of the Internet as an advertising vehicle is illustrated. This updated new edition includes an online campaign entitled Non Stop Fernando, a campaign that exploits the potential of online film.

The author shows how traditional media have been revitalised by the adoption of revolutionary approaches to their use, making the resulting adverts more creative and impactful than before. Other campaigns have extended beyond conventional formats, including the first personal SMS text messaging campaign for Cadbury chocolate and Levi’s creation of a brand character, Flat Eric, to drive viral communication before the television commercials aired.

Finally, the impact on the structure of agencies and job functions is discussed, illustrated by profiles of industry professionals.

Spending Advertising Money in the Digital Age

Seismic changes are occurring in the world of advertising due to the inexorable rise of new technologies and the way consumers are using new media. These changes in behaviour are challenging accepted ways of using the media to build brands. Based on data from the IPA Effectiveness Awards databank and from IPA TouchPoints, the world’s first customer-centric media habits survey, plus research from Nielsen and Millward Brown, the authors propose a new model, ‘F.A.I.P.A’, for media and communications planning. This model describes how to select the right media channel to promote a brand from the many that are now available, and if you are employing a range of ‘bought’, ‘owned’ and ‘earned’ media, which to concentrate on, and how to allocate the budget between them. Spending Advertising Money in the Digital Age also has contributions from leading figures in the media industry and contains many examples of top campaigns with demonstrable results in the marketplace.
