How to Add Warmth, Color & Texture to Your Advertisements
Copyright 2007 by Michele Jai Johnson
"…A powerful agent is the right word…" --Mark Twain
And what true words those are! Your marketing efforts have the ability to
succeed…or to fail…based on the words you choose to represent your products,
services, and yourself in your ads.
You have the ability to choose any words you desire. The problem is,
sometimes, we draw a blank. Our minds seem amiss of anything creative to say.
This is when a diverse collection of pre-written phrases, designed to bring
miraculous changes to your ads, comes in handy.
A collection of pre-written phrases, which you can drop right into your ad
text, offers a lot of magic, a good deal of choices, and an incredible journey
through words which develop warmth, color, and add texture to your ads. With
pre-written buzz-word phrases, you can bring your ad to life - immediately.
So how do you come up with these phrases and buzz words?
Step one is to become aware of every advertisement you're exposed to, whether
it be on television, in a newspaper, in email, or in a magazine. Just pay
attention and study those ads.
Step two involves gathering your pre-written phrases. Write down words which
make an impact on you. Make a notebook, or a computer document, and as you are
exposed to the ads around you, jot down those phrases and buzz words. Here's
some phrases and words I jotted down recently:
- Accept nothing but the best
- Because you're worth it
- Consider it a gift from you…to you
The third step is to take these phrases and integrate them into your ads. The
best way to do this is work with an ad which you've already written. How much
impact does it have? How much sparkle and pizzaz does it possess? Does your
already-written ad grab your attention? If the answer is NO, then it's time to
input some marketing miracle phrases - sprinkle them about your ad, pick some
from your list which fit with your product or service - and revise.

Let's take a look at an ad I found written by someone who is not using
marketing miracle phrases:
"New ladies brown leather coat. Size XL."
The ad for this item really didn't capture my attention. The photo of the
item did - it's a nice product! Let's see how the actual ad can be spruced up
with the use of some marketing miracle phrases:
"Give radiance to everything when you wear this exquisite, full-length,
chocolate brown leather coat. For lovers of fine quality everywhere, you'll
experience comfort and luxury, for just a fraction of the retail price.
Handsomely crafted, it will make a chic addition to your winter wardrobe. Ladies
See the difference? Using marketing miracle words gives you a new way of
impacting your buyers with words and phrases designed to bypass the mind, get
your product deep into their heart and soul, and reach the core of their deepest
So why not try it with your own ads? Just follow the three steps in this
article to add warmth, color and texture to your ads. See the change in your
ads, and the change in your bottom line sales figures. Good luck!

How Do You Define a Good Logo Design?
Copyright 2007 by Ray Smith
Everyone wants his company logo to be the best but how good is good? How do
we define a good logo? Is it necessary to be colorful or an exquisite piece of
art? Can a simple design work as a good logo? We are often in a dilemma.
Now to define a good logo design we first need to understand the purpose of
having a logo. A corporate logo is one of the most essential branding elements
for your company. It should be instrumental in building your corporate identity
and should successfully exude the company’s attitude. The viewers must have some
idea about the disposition, character, or fundamental values of your company
through your logo. The functionality of a logo does not end here, I have not yet
mentioned the most important function of a corporate logo. Your logo should be
able to build a positive, strong and long lasting impression on existing and
prospective customers. The very moment a person views your logo, even a part of
it, he should think of your company.
Just think of some of the all time great logos, McDonalds’, IBM, Nike— the
moment you see their logos, even if you see a part of it or may be in Black and
White (there comes another important aspect!) are you able to think of anything
else than the respective company? The answer is definitely NO! The first thing
that comes to your mind is the name of the company. This shows how strong an
impression their logo leaves in our mind. Isn’t that, what all of us are looking
How do you get your logo to leave such a strong long lasting impression? The
key to this question is to make it easy to remember. Companies often make the
mistake of thinking that a complicated artistic design might work well for them,
while the reverse is true, in most cases. The simpler your logo is, the easier
it is to remember and so it leaves a stronger impression on the people.
You also need to think of all the possible mediums where you are going to use
your logo. You are not going to use your logo in only one medium, you might use
it on your business cards and stationery, you might use it in your website, you
might also use it in the conventional media like newspaper classifieds and
magazines. This is why it is most important to inform your logo designers about
the possible mediums where you are going to use your logo. You should also check
if your logo looks good in Black and White, because tomorrow if you need to get
a document in black and white with your logo on it, it should be very easily
compatible to that as well.
In the beginning of this article, I have mentioned, that your logo can
successfully convey the character and nature of your business to its viewers.
How do we do that? There are a host of factors that are considered before
designing a logo. When you place an order for a logo design, as a client it is
your responsibility to give a clear brief of your company profile, the industry
you are in and the nature of logo that you are looking for, to the designers. If
you are not sure about the nature of logo that suits your company, let the logo
design firm decide on that. There are many logo design companies who are
experienced and they will be much better equipped to suggest you the correct
type of logos. Any good logo design firm would conduct a market research about
the different types of logos used in your industry by your competitors and their
impact on the people. Based on that they will deliver you a set of logos from
which you can choose any one and then they will customize !

that to your perfection.
If you have any corporate colors, as we have red for McDonalds’, it will be
wise to suggest the designers to use that color in your logo-any good designer
would anyhow do that.
One last word, as with any other industry, it is definitely beneficial to buy
professional service than to go for any amateur designs just to save a few
dollars. You might be the best in your industry but they know their job better
than you, so if you want to get a good result, try to depend on your logo design
company. I do understand that there are certain logo design companies that
charge exorbitant rate to create a logo design but the industry is changing.
These days there are companies that offer excellent logos for nominal charges

for your logo design, check the portfolio of the company and then check the
price tag. You can definitely find some professional logo designs at affordable
