Advertsing

Originally written May 15th, 2017

Beth Hendricks talked to us today about the opportunities in marketing and advertising. She really emphasized the importance of a portfolio, to have something we can show an employer. Because I’m a video production emphasis, it really got me thinking about starting a film reel and working to make a name for myself. Another way to do that that I had not thought of was to enter competitions. There are so many opportunities for us students that we don’t take advantage of. Some students even win money and get hired because of their entries.

Another thing she talked about was the 4 P’s: Product, Price, Place (Distribution) and Promotion. However, recently they added a 5th P: People. This is to say that you must think about how people will respond to your ad. In a sense, as a filmmaker I am always thinking about how people will react to my videos, so it’s interesting that that is a recent thing they added. This was very interesting to me because it is very likely that in my video production career I will have to make a commercial and I need to apply all these principles when creating it.
