Variety of researchers including consumers behavior, psychological as well as advertising have been associated with advertising research from many years in order to attain the desired advertising objectives effectively. The most important creative strategy decision is to decide on critical areas of an advertisement including source, message and channel factors for developing an effective advertisement. It is believed that a smart approach for developing effective ads common types of message appeals include fear, humor and comparative advertising. Primary data was collected using the close ended questionnaire which was administered to the target audience after exposing them to advertisements consisting of different appeals. The secondary data has been collected from journals, magazines, newspapers, thesis, books and electronic resources. This study reveals that Individual differences affect intensity play a major role in individual’s response to advertising appeals while they are exposed to Positive and Negative emotional appeals, neutral and logical appeals portraying advertisements. Recommendations are made for advertising agencies/firms themselves to select either emotional or rational appeal to be included in their advertisement, It is also suggested to gauge through research using random samples that whether the more number of High Aims exist in their target audience or more number of Low Aims exist and select the advertising appeal to be used accordingly. Furthermore emotional appeal should be used when more number of High AIM subjects exists in the target audience. Non-emotional, rational, logical appeal should be used when large number of Low AIM subjects exists.
