Teen advertising that works.
For retailers who think that teens and twenty-somethings are hard groups to target, think again. A new study by Zandl Group, a New York, N.Y-based trends research firm, indicates that this may not be the case. A nationwide panel of consumers in these age groups gave examples of products they had bought because of advertising. The study notes that most of the effective advertising is product focused. Advertisements should also provide visual excitement, entertainment value and news in the form of innovative new products or packaging, promotional offers or sale pricing. "Contrary to the misconception that teens do not want to be advertised to, most teens like advertising because it alerts them to new options. And an advertising presence helps to validate a brand in their eyes because most of the major brands are supported by advertising," says Irma Zandl, president. Zandl Group.
