Definition of 'DAGMAR'

DAGMAR is an acronym for Defining Advertising Goals for Measured Advertising Results. It is a framework for developing and evaluating advertising campaigns. DAGMAR was developed in the 1960s by Russell Colley, who was then the research director at the Association of National Advertisers (ANA).

DAGMAR is based on the idea that advertising should be used to achieve specific, measurable results. The first step in the DAGMAR process is to define the objective of the advertising campaign. This objective should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound.

Once the objective has been defined, the next step is to develop a message that will achieve the objective. The message should be relevant to the target audience and should be persuasive enough to motivate them to take action.

The third step in the DAGMAR process is to select the media that will be used to deliver the message. The media should be chosen based on the target audience and the objective of the campaign.

The fourth step in the DAGMAR process is to develop a budget for the campaign. The budget should be based on the objective of the campaign and the media that will be used.

The fifth and final step in the DAGMAR process is to evaluate the results of the campaign. The results should be measured against the objective that was set at the beginning of the campaign.

DAGMAR is a useful framework for developing and evaluating advertising campaigns. It can help marketers to ensure that their campaigns are effective and are achieving the desired results.
