Barrett’s Law of Subjectivity:
… confirmed by Gerald Ratner
The odd thing is, most people think they can. This is one of TEN REASONS why communications GO WRONG so often.
advertising slogan – just six words - killed an entire
£multi-million brand !!!
These are just three examples (plus poor Gerald) from our 'library' of Case Studies - even by marketing experts - that demonstrate the (un)reliability of conventional pre-tests … another reason why communications GO WRONG.
|Nobody applied Quality Assurance

Lord Leverhume famously complained: “50% of my advertising budget is wasted, but I don’t know which half”
We found TEN Reasons
... and ONE Solution: AdQA
When we analysed the causes of the hundreds of our Case Studies of costly Communications mistakes - even by experts - we identified TEN core reasons why comms go wrong, so often.
Every single day we see and hear communications that contain ‘obvious’ faults that a rigorous quality assurance system (such as AdQA) would have easily and quickly identified. Their effectiveness would have been significantly improved at minimal cost.
Most of these ‘faulty’ communications will have had some form of pre-testing by the clients or their agencies.
Cadbury's Gorilla tv ad is a classic example of the difficulty in judging communications. At an internal review before launch the Chief Executive didn't like it and almost killed it. The ad went on to break records for brand recall despite the brand name appearing for only three seconds. Its success had to rely on pure instinct by the Marketing Director.
