Principle # 01
KEEP IT SIMPLE:-
One most common mistake that marketing and advertising people do is that they say a lot through their ads. so keep it simple so it remains in mind of consumer for longer period of time. because one big idea is best. Example:-

2. Nestle on health.
3. Nike say just do it
4. Addidas say impossible is nothing.
5. Gulahmad of high class
6. Sana safina quality lawn for summers.
7. Daewoo express provide safe and timely journey.
On average one person is hit by 500-1000 ads in one day. consumer cannot saturate all of them. It should be personal and simple means talk about consumer, tell how customer can get maximum benefit through it. Principle # 02

WORD OF MOUTH PRODUCE IN MASSES:-
This rule builds the brand. its difficult to build brand only through advertising. its important to build advertising and public relation side by side. many dots and cons fails to build brand. those who survived only through media, public relations and word of mouth. PUBLIC RELATION ACTIVIST:-

SHAAN MASALA was local brand but now it is international one. STARBUKS harward idea in mid 1980 to create chain of coffee houses. TOY R US initially just they store on small scale; now leading kids store for toys; video games; dolls; action figures. Belong to different nice but being focused and different is best. scattered messages on too many traits ;rather be focused on single/few traits is in effective way. One cannot be every thing to every one.
