Over and Over Again

If you figure that commercials and advertisements are always successful because constantly presenting an idea over and over again will eventually make that idea or product familiar to a person it just doesn’t hurt to say the same thing over and over again.

I think most folks tend to stick with what they know.  Younger folks tend to try new things.  If you are a company and are concerned about who is going to buy your product one of the things you’re going to think about is who has money to spend on it.  Then, your campaign is planned along those lines; you’re going to go after a specific age group with money to spend. 

So, you make a television commercial.  Or, you target all sorts of advertising in addition to television, like printed ads, bloggers you pay to write about your stuff and ads on the internet.

I found an interesting article on the internet that suggested a person needs to see an advertisement 3, 7 or 20 times before they buy the product.  I am inclined to think 20 times is what it would take.  From the article came this wonderful list purported to come from Thomas Smith in 1885:

The first time people look at any given ad, they don’t even see it.
The second time, they don’t notice it.
The third time, they are aware that it is there.
The fourth time, they have a fleeting sense that they’ve seen it somewhere before.
The fifth time, they actually read the ad.
The sixth time they thumb their nose at it.
The seventh time, they start to get a little irritated with it.
The eighth time, they start to think, “Here’s that confounded ad again.”
The ninth time, they start to wonder if they’re missing out on something.
The tenth time, they ask their friends and neighbors if they’ve tried it.
The eleventh time, they wonder how the company is paying for all these ads.
The twelfth time, they start to think that it must be a good product.
The thirteenth time, they start to feel the product has value.
The fourteenth time, they start to remember wanting a product exactly like this for a long time.
The fifteenth time, they start to year for it because they can’t afford to buy it.
The sixteenth time, they accept the fact that they will buy it sometime in the future.
The seventeenth time, they make a note to buy the product.
The eighteenth time, they curse their poverty for not allowing them to buy this terrific product.
The nineteenth time, they count their money very carefully.
The twentieth time prospects see the ad, they buy what is offering.
I also base my experience on the emails and comments I get from my websites and blogs.  The questions people ask are very often the same or variations; the same ones I asked before I began to channel.

Some of the questions people ask me: 

What is it like when a person dies?
Where do they go?
Can I ever talk to my Spirit Guide?
What does Spirit sound like?
Why doesn’t Spirit talk to me?
I think an evil entity has attached itself to me.  What do I do?
How do you tell if a psychic is real or not?
Is my loved one at peace?
I keep having dreams of my loved one.  Is there something they want me to do?
Does God really exist?
When I pray does anybody actually listen to my prayers?

There are more.  I intend to address these and others in future blogs.
