A great ad can become a bad one when it’s out of context. Witness the billboard raising awareness of childhood obesity placed beside another for a fast-food giant. This week, Terry explores the importance of context in the craft of persuasion. He’ll show how great ad writers play with context to create memorable messages. He’ll explain why advertisers have come to relate to consumers in the context of a servant/master relationship, and how consumers punish marketers who stray bound those boundaries.
