Such advertising can beaimed at promoting specificproducts or at changing ormodifyingthe image of a particularbrand.Alternatively, the advertising can be aimed at improving,orinsomewaychangingtheimageofcompaniesororganizations. The amount spent on advertising, the potentialbenefits of good advertising, as well as the dangers of adopting the wrong advertising strategy, make thorough research of each aspect of advertising essential. Eachsuccessfuladvertisingcampaignisclearlyalogicalpartofawider marketingandsaleseffort,orof a corporate identity drive.Suchefforts start with an understanding of the strengths and weaknessesof each brand and manufacturer operating in the market. These are the strengths and weaknesses as perceived by customers, or potential customer and not those that are imagined to exist by company employees,whooftenhaveaninaccurateideaofhowtheircompanyorproductsareperceived.Inthis respect Usage and Attitude surveys, as well as market segmentation studies can help companies definethemarketingandsalesopportunitiesthatreallyexist.

Advertising agencies canoftendevelop severalideasthat couldbeused to aid creative staff to begin this process and to check, at various stages that the creative direction is likely to have the desired effect, an in-depth understanding of the perceptions and motivations of customers is required.Forthis,groupdiscussionsareusuallyundertaken.insomecasesbyplannersorresearchers employedbytheadvertisingagency,andinsomecasesbyoutsideconsultants. Thisprocessmayinvolveseveralelementsofresearchcheckingatvarious stagesinthedevelopment of the advertising, and will usually involve discussion with the client decider on the next stage in the refinementanddevelopmentofamorefinishedadvertisingcampaign. In the UK,this pretesting of advertising ideas isusually conducted through qualitative researchandnot quantitativetechniques.Thisissomewhatstrange,asinothercountries,quantitativemethodsareused more widely to test the communication points of individual advertisements. However, effective quantitative techniques can only be used when advertisements are in a near finished format. At this stage, some voices might whisper a negative result which contradicts the previous qualitative finding, leading to some red faces in the advertising agency. While this may indeed be somewhat uncharitable,itwouldseemsensible,atleast,toemployindependentqualitativeresearchexpertstogive an outside view on the work of the agency. Otherwise, advertising personnel are placed in an impossible position of attempting to provide impartial research and in some cases, criticizing theirown work.

While US style DAR surveys should not be used as a main measure of the effectiveness of an advertisingcampaign,UKstylepre-andpost-advertisingsurveysseemequallyinadequate.Forthistype of research,a large sampleof peopleare interviewed before the start of theadvertising campaignand asked questionstodeterminethelevelsofawarenessandimageofthebrandor company.Exactlythe same exercise is conducted immediatelyafter the end of theadvertising,andchanges which have occurred between the pre-and the post-stage can be isolated. However, such research cannot reveal what has happened during the campaign.

In addition, the research cannot show what happens in the months after the end of the campaign, only whether the changes in awareness or attitudes are short or long - lived. This 'wear out' can be crucial in coming to a final verdict on the campaignanddecidingonthenextadvertisingmoveanditstiming. For this reason, advertising tracking surveys are increasing in popularity.
