and the picture of a cocoa bean will be used consistently to link all the aspects together and create an impact towards the target audience. Media * Television Because of the impact that television can generate (Fill 2009) it is an optimal medium to convey the emotional appeal of the message. The message will be conveyed through scenes that illustrate each emotion and benefit that the product brings (happiness, opportunities, quality and taste), finishing with the source of these benefits: the high content of cocoa. At the end of the advert the product itself will be shown along with a close-up of the "Lindt for Life" logo on the packaging and the website address of the campaign. Picture 1: TVC * Magazine As one of the most important and beneficial medium amongst the whole set of traditional media, print media continues to provide a competitive edge to companies who utilise it. This media, through its different forms, provides a segmented, niche, distinctively targeted scope of advertising (Katz 2007). As a form of printed media, magazines are very efficient in delivering the required message as images and the written word can be used to explain the message of the campaign (Fill 2009). In the magazines the written word will be specifically used to explain the company objective of improving the life of the farmers and their families, i.e.: "Lind for Life" and how the company aims to set a precedent in the chocolate industry and other industries in order to create a better future for all. Furthermore technical information about the "Lind for Life" will be stated in order to clarify the campaign and create credibility, for example how the money is invested in Ghana. In this way, through 'Excellence', the company will be seen as an ethical and fair company aligning itself in the ethical movement, which is especially important for the Excellence target audience. ...read more.
