Other than that, there are several principles of effective advertising such as repeated tastiness, simplicity and identifiable selling point with the ambition of visual image and illustration.Firstly, repeated tastiness is visual consistency combined with consistent tastiness can be a powerful approach.
Tagging must remain the same when the ad is change.

MIMIC MEDIA TOOLS Traditional media channels such as advertising on television, radio, and newspaper play an important role in developing a fully integrated marketing program.

For the television advertising, it allows great creative flexibility with the integration of sight, sound, and motion, and makes possible dramatic presentations of the product.
Furthermore, it also offers advertisers the ability to reach highly segmented market through the many cable channels that are available now. By using this media, the advertising has greater clutter such as changing channels during the advertising time, voice from outsiders and so on.Outdoor advertising will consists entirely of billboards, and they are permanent and cannot be turned off by the customers like television. But it has only short exposure time and only brief message to the target audience. Newspaper advertising allows for individualized local advertising and it is a tedium capable of reaching numerous market segments. The disadvantages of newspaper advertising are short life span and major clutter for the target audiences especially holidays. On the other hand, traditional media channels restricted to the place of performances, and the reach is limited.
