The actual study is dedicated to the analysis of reading text common for printing and interactive advertisement that national consumer watches on billboards, in the shops, in printed booklets, in monitors and another advertising medium. It is well known that usually an assessment of ads perception based on sociological methods that are limited for many reasons. The most crucial limitations relate to the period of ads design when there is no possibility of building statistics on real consumer’s behavior parameters, number of sales etc. The results of the study lead to the expansion of knowledge of text ads assessment based on new objective methods. Review of automatic algorithms for text complexity assessment presented in the article. Studies of psychophysiological parameters in reading are also reviewed. The actual study contains two series of experiments: the pilot experiment and the main experiment in which the repeatability and reproducibility of the results were checked as well as their comparison on different categories of ads. During the presentation of commercial texts oculomotor activity (parameters of eye movements) was recorded while respondents were reading texts and also answers to specifying questions were analyzed. The answers clarify the perception and understanding of the proposed texts. The results show that the indicator of complexity correlates with text understanding, and the indicator of constraint complements it comprehensively that is efficient in case of complexity mismatch. Thus basing on these two factors one may objectively evaluate text ads as well as compare alternative examples of advertisement. The method especially well appliсable to ads with a significant volume of text which is very actual for example in the field of bank lending, mortgage programs, as well as in many other categories of advertising with text.

The article is devoted to the study of the values of university students as a target audience in the market of educational services. The authors offer an interpretation of online questioning technology of the target audience through social networks: placement of posts in student groups, placement of relevant publications at the peak of attendance of virtual student communities in social networks. The novelty of the author’s approach is the combination of the use of a number of factors such as: anonymity of the survey; publication of the responses without identifying the sender, city and educational institutions; one-time placement positions in each of the communities, etc. In further analysis of the responses, summary “portraits” and “profiles” of respondents were formed based on behavioral, demographic, economic, and other characteristics. The information obtained during the preparation of the portrait of student’s values of higher educational institutions will allow the University administration to develop a competent and effective marketing strategy for the development of the University and attract new entrants with minimal costs.
