Feelings, nothing more than feelings

How will the audience feel when they use your clients product or service?  If you can transmit that emotional experience in a commercial, youll get listeners to visit the advertiser or even begin using the product or service in their minds. Their imaginations will provide the most powerful test drive on the planet. Create a story that will put the listener in the situation where theyll experience those feelings.

Another approach: Have the audience feel what life would be like without the product or service in their lives, and then how much better theyll feel with it. It takes the problem/solution scenario and turbo charges it with emotion. Make the feelings come alive with sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. Make them want it. Then show them how easy it is to get that feeling  go to the store, call the number, or log onto the website.

We all want to be happy. Write your commercial to show us how we can be happy. Help us picture in our minds being happy using your clients product or service. Its the ultimate benefit-sell.

Your mind is bursting with questions and you want answers. You cant stand it anymore. You have to tell someone, someone wholl understand. Quickly you email for your very own free copy of Hedquists List of 329 Commercial Cliches, guaranteed to reduce commercial effectiveness.
