Ad Anaylsis

...such as the Crystal Light ad. The magazine's popularity alone ensures that any ad among its pages will receive countless views from readers. However, an audience is not the only requirement for an ad to be effective; it is also necessary that the ad is presented in a way that is relevant to the specific clientele targeted by the magazine. The Crystal Light ad is effective in reaching its target audience by appealing to a woman's emotions, incorporating logic, and using captivating and inclusive imagery. The Crystal Light ad reaches its target audience by succinctly penetrating deep into the emotional desires of women universally. The first phrase says, “Take a moment to drink it all in.” Women long to enjoy life. Often the most enjoyable past time is miraculously having a break from the routine and mundane things done on a daily basis. Many women long to do as the old proverb said and have time to stop and smell the roses. In this ad, the wording is integral in resounding with the reader's emotions. The desire to simply have a break is reiterated in the next phrase which says, “Enjoy life one sip at a time.” The simple yet precise phrases of the Crystal Light ad hit the core of numerous emotional longings of women. The Crystal Light ad also incorporates logic to effectively sway women into choosing their product. It is difficult for the average female juggling family, work, and personal needs to follow a rigorous low calorie diet. Therefore the ad logically boasts......

Daisy Ad

...the Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy Ad” and the “I’m Mad” advertisement by Ronald Regan for support of Barry Goldwater, there are similarities between the two videos as well as vast differences. The Johnson campaign committee made a very dramatic dramatization of what would happen if the people of the United States elected Goldwater for president in 1964, portraying that if Goldwater were elected the entire nation would be thrown into war. During this terrible time frame which was referred to as the Cold War, people were constantly on edge of fear of a nuclear attack from the Soviet Union and its allies, many U.S. citizens were accused of treason and blackballed. Johnson wanted to use the fear and gullibility of the nation at that time to gain an advantage in the presidential campaign. Meanwhile, Regan spent the entirety of the Goldwater ad attempting to clear the dirt away from the Goldwater family. But, in this advertisement for Goldwater, Regan does little to retract the statements made by the Johnson ad, instead he tries to justify that the country needs someone impulsive to keep the nation on edge and to keep the nations defenses at a maximum. Both videos portray attempts by both candidates to manipulate the voters through fear of an imminent attack on the U.S. by Soviet forces. The only differences in the videos is how they catered the message to the viewers, with the Johnson ad being a direct attempt to slander the opponent, whilst the Goldwater ad was a mere rebuke by......

Ad Techniques

...recognizable forms of print marketing. Each medium has its benefits and downfalls, such as billboards provide the reader with information that is hard to avoid but it is also hard for the reader to spend enough time reading the billboards so they have to be simple and to the point. Newspapers and magazines provide the advertisers with an easy and relatively cheap way to reach an audience. Readers can peruse newspapers and magazines at their leisure and consider each ad carefully. Using large print and concise headlines grab the reader’s attention in a newspaper where ads are cluttered and frequent. While print media is relatively inexpensive, broadcast media can reach a wider audience. Television, radio, and social media are some examples of broadcast media. Advertisers use commercials that can be aired on television and radio to reach a larger audience than print media. Researching target audiences is a must in this form of marketing. Advertisers have to know what time, channel, and station their audience tunes into. Radio ads must be aired several times before the information will really sink into the listeners mind so the timing and station is very important for the advertisement to be cost effective. Television requires a strong audio and video combination. These components need to function well alone so the viewer can still get the idea of the advertisement if they are not paying attention to the picture or sound. For the advertisers and mediums to be......

To What Extent Did Emperors Successfully Manage to Elect a Successor During the Period 31 Bc to Ad 96?

...To what extent did emperors successfully manage to elect a successor during the period 31 BC to AD 96? Nominating a successor was definitely a focal problem with every emperor recorded in Roman history, and doing it successfully was undeniably a problem that needed a solution for the Roman Empire, as no one was ever happy about what had been decided. However, it was a much more complex issue for all the emperors of the period 31 BC to AD 96; nonetheless there was no single solution to this problem. However not every appropriate successor elected meant that they would be successful in becoming the next definite emperor, as many died even before the emperor of that time did, or they were challenged and then under suspicious circumstances, murdered. The central reason of all the convolutions involved in trying to find an adequate successor, was mainly due to the Roman belief that family praise and glory were the most important things any Roman with authority should consider. And it by no doubt dominated the Romans on how they behaved. Augustus had introduced laws that the princeps or the title of the emperor could not be passed down like a monarchy, but could only be approved by the senate, but it eventually became inheritable. The senate had historically been allowed to pass on their status to their descendants, and so succession within the family was by no doubt acceptable, we can prove this by highlighting the fact that Augustus himself wanted to choose a successor who had...

...Rita Kumar 11 November 2009 AD Analysis of Reebok Advertisements The articles I chose come from the same exact magazine just different publish dates. They are targeting the exact same youth but in very different ways. My goal is to break the their interpretations and show what the ads are trying to represent in the companies eye. Reaching the target audience is the key for sales and with marketing departments being the the crucial part of business you know they are always coming up with ways to find them. My first Reebok article is cut in half. On one side of the photograph is superstar rap artists Jay-Z. The other side of the photograph is a picture of the projects he grew up in. You are able to catch a glimpse of a drug dealer's arm which has abut six rubber bands around it. In Jay-Z's part of the photograph he's in the penthouse suite overlooking downtown New York City. He's in a professional suit and is sitting in an expensive brown lunge chair. The other side of the photograph is black and white unlike Jay-Z's portion. Your able to really see the details of the photograph of an image portraying a younger Shawn Carter “aka” Jay-Z. This little article has an amazing amount of subtle messages. At first glance it's hard to figure out what exactly is the advertisement trying to sell. You see a strategically place Reebok symbol place in the lower right hand corner of the photo. It makes the reader have to search and by doing that that get what the article is trying......

Ad Influence

...of positive memories and feelings that over time people’s beliefs are effected. Could it be that advertising shapes our desire for a more creative lifestyle like those portrayed in ads? In Advertising as Art Michael Schudson questions whether advertising consciously gets people to have faith and buy the advertised product, or subconsciously works when attitudes and assumptions implied in advertising become real to the people surrounded by ads. Today’s advertisements don’t ask to be taken literally, yet marketers have to be careful to not be misleading when targeting a certain group of audience. For instance, in a Bergdorf Goodman magazine ad a male model is wearing a blue suit with a small smirk on his face. Bold-white font writing brings the viewer’s attention to the phrase “A Goodman finishes first.” Everything in this ad seems it can be true to those who wear suits. The ad successfully targets middle class or white-collar men who seek fulfillment in their lives. The phrase from the ad is trying to prompt the audience to believe that they will get what they desire, whether it’s girls, a raise, or attractiveness, by wearing the suit. The male model looks confident standing in an upright position with one hand in his pocket and the other hand by his side. A description is on the bottom of the ad that describes that the model is a political affairs officer. The ad’s assumes that successful and good-looking men shop at Goodman’s Men’s Store. This assumption will make men......

Ad Analysis

...Taylor Williams Ad Analysis Feb. 28, 2013 "This is where families form unbreakable bonds. Where sharing a moment means creating a memory. And where your family getaway is something you'll return to forever. Come share this unforgettable experience. In a land called Colorado." This particular ad is a description of a visit to the state of Colorado. Convincing more tourism is the purpose for this ad. The targeted audience for this ad is seen visually in the painting of a family surrounded by a camp-wood fire in the middle of nowhere. Families, and mainly people who love to travel, are called through this promotion. This ad appeals to families of a certain socio-economic and educational level. There are advertising techniques used to symbolize these things. Plain folks, the most seen technique, is a suggestion that the product is a practical product of good value for ordinary people. When you look at the Colorado ad, you can easily visualize your "ordinary" family around that camp fire in the wilderness. However, families who cannot provide the "perfect" life for their children cannot replace the people that are photographed in the picture. Families that are poor or unstable, such as drug addicts, alcoholics, and abusive will not be seen taking a plane, bus, or car al the way to Colorado to see the mountains. The ideal family is seen here. Using the consumer's imagination, they are finishing up riding their horses around for a nature walk, settling down around a fire......

Ad Paper

...MM522: Marketing Management Professor: Dr. James Frazee Keller Graduate School of Management: Winter 2008 Session Effectiveness of a Marketing Ad Introduction: There is not doubt that the name Trump calls the public’s attention; hence, I chose the ad for Ivanka Trump’s jewelry collection. Trump is already an established brand name; thus, it is easily marketable. However, Ivanka especially, has had immense achievements. I am greatly impressed to see how ambitious and entrepreneurial this young woman is. Despite having been born into wealth, as the daughter of real estate mogul Donald Trump, she is nothing like other young celebrities, i.e., Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Ritchie and/or Britney Spears. She is the heiress to an empire, composed not only of real estate properties worldwide, but also casinos, television series, and mainly her father’s assets and entire net worth. This young woman clearly does not need to work. Ivanka could very well dedicate her time to create celebrity gossip, be a party girl, and have her picture taken. Indeed, money is certainly not an obstacle for her. Background: Although some could argue that Ivanka has had it easy, as her father’s empire was given to her, this is far from the truth. Ivanka Trump graduated from the Wharton School of Finance. As one of most prestigious universities in the nation, at Wharton only outstanding candidates are considered for admission. Furthermore, she graduated with honors,......

Bk Ad

...Sexual Connotation in the BK Ad Andrea Farias Sheridan College Over the course of many years, advertising agencies have been using various methods to advertise their products. Such methods can include repetition, claims, association, following what others do or even promotions. An advertisement agency in Singapore produced a Burger King ad that has a sexual connotation; the new “BK Super Seven Incher”. Burger King was always facing fierce competition with McDonald’s. This pushed Burger King to be desperate about their promotion of the new product in Singapore. However the use of the context for the advertisement has made it ineffective. It is quite clear that the new “BK Super Seven Incher” has used sexual connotation. Using the facial expression of the woman having her mouth agape, the use of a seven inch sandwich and the words “IT’LL BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY” create a fellatio connotation. This use of association does not appeal to the general audience. For the advertisement to be successful, it should not only appeal to hormonal teenagers and men, but to others. Parents with young children would most likely stray away from buying this product. Furthermore, it is a well-known fact that the eastern mindset is much less liberal with their sexuality. Consequently, Burger King risks having family oriented customers boycott their restaurant. The ad is neither family oriented nor friendly, and the sandwich does not look anything close to healthy. Another audience that this......

Ad Analysis

...Ad Analysis It happens once a month. It lasts for five to seven days. It is a time when a female becomes physically, emotionally, and mentally affected. It has been known to be a women’s worse nightmare. It’s the infamous menstrual cycle. The only thing that makes this time manageable is a good, reliable tampon. The Tampax Pearl ad persuades buyers to purchase their product through role models, settings, and props. The ad context is directed towards the teenage female population. A high school football field is the setting for the ad. The main characters portrayed are high school cheerleaders. They are all dressed in matching uniforms with blue and white tops, white skirts, and white shoes. They are perceived to be cheering in the middle of a high school football game. There is a girl doing a toe touch as she is tossed into the air by three other cheerleaders. There is a look of uncertainty on her face, as she attempts to smile. This brings a bit of humor to the ad. Above her head is the text reading “At a moment like THIS, I don’t care if my tampons came in a little black box.” The other 4 cheerleaders are doing individual jumps in the background. Near the bottom of the ad is a Tampax box that has the shape of a heart on the front of the package. Beneath the logo are the words “Outsmart Mother Nature,” outlined in pink. The bottom center of the ad also reads “Tampax Pearl with Cleanguard protects better than Kotex.” To persuade potential buyers the......

Ad Analysis

...Subject: Analysis of Pamela Anderson PeTA ad Human VS. Animal Introduction Men and women are exposed to advertisements every day, weather they think they are or not. Unfortunately, there are more and more that goes against women and degrades them. The design features of this PeTA ad uses and focuses of female stereotypes, in order to persuade men and women to become a vegetarian. There are ways this could be portrayed as a stereotypical ad, from the model, to how she is sitting and what she is wearing, or even with what the text says, to the color choices. Description The ad was smaller when it was pulled it up on the internet, but the model is Pamela Anderson. There are limited colors of white, blue, black, and the skin and hair color of the model. It is obvious that she is trying to be sexy in every aspect. It looks as if she is sitting on a bed. She is wearing a revealing two-piece blue bikini, slightly showing some cleavage, and her hair and make-up are done, which pulls attention to the look on her face. Clearly, the look she is trying to go for is innocent. Also, her body is sectioned into parts just as a cow’s body would be when processed for meat. The text also plays a big part in this ad. Along the top of the ad it says: “ALL ANIMALS HAVE THE SAME PARTS,” and “HAVE A HEART, GO VEGETARIAN,” which surprisingly matches the color of her bikini, which also pulls the attention to her chest and face. Target Audience This ad reaches out to both men and......

History of Ads

...American will see 3000 ads per day (2010). With such a high level of advertising around consumers every day, is it likely that advertising shapes society, or that it merely mirrors pre-existing social trends? This is important because should advertising shape society, the high numbers of advertisements in existence could have a substantial impact to society’s wellbeing, as well as the ethical issues surrounding the messages and behaviours advertisers are trying to achieve. The question of advertising as a mirror vs. creator of culture is one of the most debated issues of the relationship between advertising and society. Does the image of woman represented in advertising shapes society or mirrors already prevailing social trends? Hypothesis The advertising media produces messages,images and ideas of woman, which therefore affect the process of social change. Conclusion The controversy between critical media sociologists, who emphasize the value producing function of advertising, and empirics, who are foremost interested in demonstrating how social reality is reflected in advertising, seems to have subsided in recent years, resulting in a compromise integrating both approaches The history and change of woman portrayed in advertising Depression and war: Changing roles The Great Depression and World War II left indelible marks on society. Through the 1930s, ad copy continued to portray women primarily as homemakers Woodbury soap featured what is thought to......

Political Ads

...Jonah Pohl Assignment One: Emotional Impact of Using Kids in Campaign Ads 1964: Lyndon B. Johnson “Daisy” and “Ice Cream Cone.” 1. Both of these commercials are communicating the message that if voted President, Barry Goldwater, would begin testing nuclear weapons and may even lead the United States to a nuclear war. The commercials then urge citizens to vote for Johnson to avoid this calamity. 2. Children are included in these commercials to cause the viewers to feel more emotion about what the ads are saying. In these ads it is suggested that if Goldwater is elected, the United States could be lead to nuclear destruction. When this is paired with the images of children, the viewers feel that they must vote against Goldwater to ensure the safety of the children of America. 3. I believe these ads are far more effective for older people than for younger audiences. This is because older people, and especially parents, would feel more emotion after watching these ads and learning that voting against Johnson might put their children in danger. As a young person, I didn't find these commercials as effective as I might have if I were older. 1976: Gerald Ford “Children/Achievements.” 1. The purpose of this commercial was to inform viewers of the progress that Gerald Ford had made as President so far, and that he should be the man to continue to lead America forward. 2. Children are a part of this commercial because it makes the viewers feel like Gerald Ford is a kind,......
