East Arlington, TX (PressExposure) December 22, 2009 -- Do you really know how posters persuades readers? Posters are not just a simple picture with words. True poster printing is made up of a variety of factors that jointly induces some purposeful persuasion to readers.
To understand what really is happening in terms of message delivery and persuasion in color posters, here are a few facts that you might want to know about.
â¢ Image persuasion - The image is the main part of your poster. In terms of persuading people though, its vital role is at the start. These types attract people primarily via their images. Therefore, this means that the images that you need to put in there should be very well composed. Your target market must recognize the image, they must know about it, and they must engage with your image in an emotional level. You do not just stick good-looking models in your color posters. There must be a story in the picture. There must be a message so that you can persuade people that your posters mean something.
â¢ Text persuasion - The text in color posters are there if images just cannot articulate your message of persuasion fully. For your text to be really persuasive though, you must be good with words. You must be able to add excitement and action into your words for people to really respond to them. So for example, you should not just put the text "Buy this!" in your sales posters, you should try a more exciting version like "Limited stocks only, buy now!" Adding that sense of urgency to your text can be very persuasive. If you find the right blend of words to achieve this, your marketing tools should be more effective with its goals.
â¢ Color persuasion - Colors are also a big factor in posters. You should not choose a dominant color just because it is your favorite. You must choose the color based on the emotion that you want to have. Therefore, if your advertising materials need energy and dynamism, then you can persuade more people by using warm and energetic colors like yellow, red, and neon colors.
However, if you are creating inspirational ones, then you can persuade more people to be more inspired by using cooler and more serene colors like light blue, cyan, or blue green. These things have a subtle effect but they will add the emotion that should add that extra persuasive factor in your poster designs.
â¢ Quality persuasion - Finally, the quality is also a factor in making it more persuasive. Nobody trusts a poster that looks dirty or is all torn and folded up. This means that to be really persuasive with your posters you should ramp up the quality of the poster materials and make things tough. Using posters that are water and dirt resistance, with a thick paper material is good. Your marketing tools like this will always look good wherever you put them and will last longer. As long as they look like high quality, people will trust them and will become more persuaded by them. This is a clear advantage over much lower quality ones.
Therefore, these four factors determine the persuasive factor of your marketing materials. Try to combine these things properly with your own posters so that you can persuade as many people as you can with your message. Good Luck!
