Resonance – 1) The ad strikes a chord or resonates with the viewer
2) The milk ads which show over choice – “Low fat, no fat, reduced fat, high calcium” is something milk buyers can relate to.
Affective – 1) Appeals to the viewers on a purely emotional level.

Given bellow is the feedback given by the lecturer.
Just an overall thing to take note of:
Some initiatives do not make sense (like you are using National TV for a small cafe) Think about this - in real life, you will not have the money to do so and it is not needed nor relevant. The initiatives that you select need to be relevant to the consumer. So if it is a Gen Y, then traditional channels like TV are not applicable. The tools need to reflect the objectives too.
Set a scene at the introduction. You need to establish what is happening (opening a new restaurant / gym / shop; generating more business for sluggish sales, repositioning to gain a new segment) Tell me what is happening so that I know why there is a need for the campaign.
Using Canva to create sample designs would be a great way to communicate your ideas,
