My Uncle’s profession?
Well, he told fortunes, and he stole horses. Often, he would tell a man that his horse would be stolen, and they would marvel at his powers when it was.
This quote from “Peaky blinders” ain’t getting old any time soon.
Watch this show if you haven’t already.
In case you didn’t noticed I just presented a promotion before you. (Producer didn’t pay me though)
Now smart ones must’ve already predicted that.
Those who didn’t- What was the promotion in this post?
“Watch the TV show Peaky blinders”
I can bet on my original passport that 98% of you people don’t like these promotion as well as advertisement.
Well uhh most of you.
Just to be clear there is a hell lot of difference between a promotion and an advertisement.
Advertising is a one-way communication whose purpose is to inform potential customers about products and services and how to obtain them. Promotion involves disseminating information about a product, product line, brand, or company. It is one of the four key aspects of the marketing mix. Advertising may be one forms of promotion.
Promotions that are run with a time limit create a sense of urgency. Humans are driven to seek out pleasure and to avoid pain. The pain associated with missing out on a special promotion will drive us to snap up the offer. We don’t want to miss out. To encourage this impulse, retailers use signs to indicate that stock is running low or time is running out.
Talking about TV shows precisely–
We seldom buy things that we have not seen or tested in some capacity, which is why trailers are absolutely essential to marketing films & TV shows.
For content to spread at a compound rate i.e. ‘go viral’, it must push the audience to experience an emotional extreme. This can be through humor, fear, sadness, enlightenment, anger, lust, or any other strong emotional trigger.
Putting the need of something creatively whether useful or useless will definitely gain the attention. Proven fact!!
You can put humorous statements too. (Make sure it isn’t negative- The Conception of the negative “humor”)
Puns are also effective. See below some of’em.
An unfortunate pun::
“I went to a seafood disco last week…and pulled a mussel.”
A pun that’s almost worth using:
“I wasn’t originally going to get a brain transplant, but then I changed my mind.”
Here’s a pun that could be worth using:
“I put all my spare cash into an origami business. It folded.
See through your mind and you’ll find that “you promote and you live”
