Environmental issues such as social, political, economical and technological can all affect advertising. For instance advertising gives consumers information about a product and thereby making it popular among consumers. Also advertising raises the cost of production this means this can have a negative impact on the product. Another social issue associated with advertising is deception.

Advertising campaigns can be evaluated either through ?pre-testing? or campaign evaluation (post-testing). Pre-testing is also known as copy testing, and is a specialized field of marketing research that determines an ad?s effectiveness based on consumer responses, feedback, and behaviour. The most common methods used to pre-test advertisements are concept testing, focus groups, consumer juries, dummy vehicles, readability, theatre and physiological tests. The practical objective of pre-testing unfinished and finished creative work is that it is more effective for an advertiser to terminate an advertisement before costs become so large and commitment too final. On the other hand post-testing or campaign evaluation provides either periodic or continuous in-market research monitoring a brand?s performance, including brand awareness, brand preference, product usage and attitudes. Some post-testing approaches simply track changes over time, while others use various methods to quantify the specific changes produced by advertising?either the campaign as a whole or by the different media utilized. Overall, advertisers use post-testing to plan future advertising campaigns, so the approaches that provide the most detailed information on the accomplishments of the campaign are most valued. Under post testing the main element to evaluate are awareness, liking, interest, enjoyment and action. Evaluation takes place to assess how well (or not) the objectives have been achieved Already our product is owned by Coca-Cola therefore we already enjoy a product place. Distribution of our products will be successful. ...read more.
