News & Opinion: The Three Essential Elements
Every promotion of any kind must have three essential elements to have any chance for success.
- You must create Excitement - though visuals and/or sound
- Your promotion must have real news value
- You need a compelling call to action- "Why should I drop everything right now and go buy your product or service!"
And make sure your promotions are crystal clear on Point 3. Make the call to action the HERO of your ad as in--"Call Us Now! You will get right through to an experienced professional ready and able to assist you!"
