Are we aware of how advertisers appeal to us? Do we think about the credible messages we are listening and watching to without realizing it? Let’s hope so because as consumers, we purchase products that we can identify with. It is important for us to look at the little hints in advertisements, and the parts they play in in determining what products men and women buy in today’s economy.
The number of ads a human see’s throughout their day, between TV and street ads mainly, is in the ballpark of 3,000 and that’s not including the grocery store, the movies, or the mail we get. We don’t realize how exposed to ads we really are. And the scariest part of it all is that they’ll hit us when we’re least expecting it. When you get that craving for cheeze-its, the sudden impulse to buy a new purse, buying the newest pair of shoes, for no reason at all. You know you’re not supposed to buy them, but you cave in and burn a damaging hole in your wallet. You can try as hard as you want not to look at ads but they are all around us. As I sit at my kitchen table writing this paper, I can see at least fifteen ads without turning my head and all I can think about is how good Tormino’s pizza and I could get a free small pizza with my punch card or how I need to beat the next chapter in the HALO saga to take out my anger for how much I love school, Better Homes soft cashmere Amber candle, 1980’s Nintendo helpline number with Mario on it. Just to name a few. Since the television became popular in the early ‘50s, it has been in the living rooms, and minds of people around the world and sadly remains a major part of our daily life. Some people say television is a "harmless entertainment." Violence, sexuality, race and gender stereotypes are common and popular themes in most television programs. Shows like ‘Family Guy’ and ‘South Park’ take these themes, and looks at society as a whole…...

Apple Ad Analysis

...“Every picture tells a story, of course, some stories are bigger than others.” Called Thumb, Cheese, Physics and Ears, the slick 30-second skits, each with a voiceover from Newsroom star Jeff Daniels, focus on various aspects of the Apple’s new IPhone. The new ads focus on the key features of the iPhone 5, mostly hardware updates. The new iPhone has a larger screen, a better camera, thinner body and new headphones amongst other updates like the lightning port. Company background Apple, founded in 1976 by Steven P. Jobs and Steve Wozniak, is not just the world’s largest technology company; it is the world’s most highly valued public company. Over the last decade, Apple has redefined the music business through the iPod, the cellphone business through the iPhone and the entertainment and media world through the iPad. Although, Apple already boasted the largest market value of any public company, on Aug. 20, 2012, it became the most highly valued public company ever. With a surge in its share price, Apple broke the record for the biggest market capitalization, $616.34 billion, set by Microsoft on Dec. 27, 1999. In September 2012, Apple introduced the iPhone 5, which has a larger screen, faster wireless Internet speeds and a more powerful chip. Just three days after its release, Apple said it had sold five million new iPhones. The iPhone has become a gold mine for Apple, accounting for $16.2 billion in sales, or 46 percent of Apple’s total revenue. Target customer......

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......

Female Selective Abortion

...Female Selective Abortion While females in America are making great strides in gaining equality, females throughout various countries of Asia continue to be disregarded, abused, and in some occasion, aborted before birth. In fact, studies have shown that within the last two decades of the twentieth century, several million female fetuses have been aborted (Miller, 2001). Throughout these countries with high rates of Female-Selective Abortion, or FSA, one cultural similarity exists: they are all characterized as patriarchal. Among these Asian societies which are patriarchal in nature, males dominate practically all aspects of life, both public and private. Males there are seen to control the economy by having productive property, inheritance rights, and preferred employment. From a religious standpoint, these countries view males as a symbol of purity and power, while females are linked to negative notions such as impurity, danger, and a need to be controlled by males. Even culturally, males are more accepted because some of these countries, for instance China, have a preference of having a son as the first born. With so much value place upon males, many soon-to-be parents living in these countries are hopeful that their birth child will be a male. Many pregnant couples are doing whatever they can, and with the help of new technology, to ensure that they will not give birth to a female baby. In fact, evidence has shown a substantial increase in female-selective abortions......

Prestesting Ads

...the extent to which the intended message is accurately decoded. These comprehension and reaction tests are designed to prevent inappropriate advertisements reaching the finished stage. RULES OF RESEARCH (if the mkt staff of the company has this clear, the pretest shouldn’t fail) - Be clear about the objectives of both the advertising and the research you are commissioning. - Develop trust between your own brand team, agency creatives, planners and researchers. A collaborative approach should not threaten great creative ideas. - Ad development research should begin with testing the core ad strategy in qualitative groups. You can then embark on creative development and pre-testing research. - Ensure your qualitative and quantitative samples match your target audience. So when testing a cutting-edge execution, your sample should not be made up of mainstream consumers. - Encourage your ad agency creatives to attend qualitative groups to witness ad development research in action. This makes the process more transparent and reduces suspicion on both sides. - Don't use pre-testing results as a replacement for your own judgement. Good research is a compass, not a road map.

Impact of Ads

Mukwano has launched a new detergent powder to compete in East Africa common market through intensive advertising internationally Daily monitor April 2010, but there are some inefficiencies in the way these organization carries out its advertisements for example Mukwano advertisements in the visual media is done in local language i.e. (luganda) a language that can only be understood by a few people in the country, making the advertisement appealing only to a group of people. The advertisements lacks the unique selling proposition in the statements used to differentiate their products from competitors, they are done in the same way as the competitors making it hard to differentiate its ads from others. Besides their advertisements don’t provide room for further information about their products for clarification (Daily Monitor April 2010) For the past four years expected sales in Mukwano have differed from their actual sales as shown in the table below whereby in the year 2007 there was a slight increment in ales volume and started declining from year 2008 to 2009 Table 1: Annual report 2009 to 2010 |YEARS |EXPECTED SALES |ACTUAL SALES | |2007 |200m |210m | |2008 |250m ......

Female Selective Abortion

...Barbara Miller's article (2001) on female-selective abortion (FSA) may be more than 11 years old (not that long ago, but imagine all the other social and medical changes that have occurred since 2001), but FSA is still a hot-button topic. Page 1090 in Miller (2002) (in your assigned readings) begins addressing the divergent views on FSA. Reflect on your ability to discuss a view point opposing to your own. Then, consider Miller (2001) and select a view expressed in the article with which you disagree. Respectfully, write a reflection on that view in her article with which you disagree. This reflection is not asking you to accept someone else’s viewpoint as your own, but to appropriately discuss it*. FSA Represents Free Choice. I disagree with western feminists, ethicists each having their own interpretation of “choice” about abortion and FSA in particular. Any kind of abortion should be morally wrong and not just abortion on gender grounds. In both Asian and African countries, sons have been preferred over daughters. Because of this I think that most women especially uneducated and those pushed around by their husbands or in-laws might be pushed into having an abortion if they are having a girl. It is hard to day or do something unless you walk in the other’s own shoes. How do you push a woman to have an abortion? Yes iam sure one can be persuaded but some do keep their girl fetus and do not abort them. “Pure reproductive freedom is the complete absence of......

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......

Counter Ads

... Counter Ads Name: Institution: Course: Date: Counter advertisement is made to make the consumers aware of the dangers and the harm a product can cause to them. In most cases, I have witnessed counter-advertisement utilized to create awareness of the possible negative influence that alcohol may cause to the consumers and other related issues. Such action will work effectively if done through the media in the form of printings or video broadcast. They counter advert can also be labeled with the product to make sure that everybody who buys that product has seen that label. The public health departments are increasingly using the counter advertisement to impact the good behavior among the consumers. There are those who argue that creating awareness of the side effects cannot be the appropriate means to pass the information via the mass media. The counter ads communication structure can be used for the promotion of a wide responsibility to perfect the challenges facing health. Initially, the normal advertisement promotes the policies and the product counters ads, on the other hand, promote only the views that are relevant by the health of the public. The key role played by the counter ads is to change the existing views that public health problems are the same as the personal health problems. The counter ads result to conflicts between various parties because they mix up health issues with the political and social issues. The acceptable strategies to carry out such counter......

History of Ads

...estimate that on average, the typical North 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......

Selective Listening

... Selective Listening Author Institution Selective listening is considered as a negative kind of listening; the selective means that the listener is biased to what he is hearing. The term bias here is based on emotionally difficult communications or preconceived ideas. All in all, selective listening is considered as failing communication sign because by filtering some information one cannot hope to understand. For a child, he or she uses selective listening to identify people, for instance, the child knows that his mother voice is different from his father’s. In addition using selective listening a child chooses to listen to cool sound by focusing his or her attention to a specific sound or spoken words. A noisy environment is not ideal for selective listening. A child who is developing will deteriorate his selective listening when exposed to an environment with unpredictable noises (Singleton & Shulman, 2014). The suggestion I would make to optimize the child’s ability to listen to speech for him to understand are using listening games and fun activities to promote the listening. Fun activities will help especially in dealing with selective listening where children hear what they want to hear talking to the child all the time will help improve their listening skills here a parent or guardian develops a habit of narrating chores done around the house to the child. Furthermore, when reading stories to the child, one can......

Selective History of the Computer

...From the Abacus to the PC: A Selective History of the Computer Thousands of years ago, the abacus was invented; it was this seemingly simple device that aided a human with calculations, which would be used as the conceptual model to build the computer. Looking back, one of the earliest instances of computer technology in action was not found in a computer at all but in a loom. The Jacquard loom, patented in 1804, was programmed by punched cards to create patterns in woven cloth (Keats 72). Charles Babbage, the English mathematician and many others would eventually use punch cards to program the computers they developed. The computer has taken many forms through the ages, and it would not be until almost 100 years later that the first fully electronic computer, the Atanasoff Berry Computer (ABC), would be developed, ushering in the age of electronic computing. The earliest computing device known, the abacus, a tool for counting and calculating, was invented thousands of years ago, and it consisted of beads on a frame whose numerical value was indicated by their position on the frame (Fernandes). In addition to being beads on a frame, an abacus was a stone or an area on the ground with grooves in which pebbles were placed and then manipulated for calculating. The abacus was in use centuries before the adoption of the written modern numeral system and is still widely used (“Abacus”). The abacus used the biquinary numbering system, a numbering system used in some early......

Emotional Ads

...upon consumers’ implicit memory (Schacter 1987). However, while emotional traces stored in memory may be accessible, they may not be particularly diagnostic when consumers engage in the effortful, strategic searches of memory necessary for explicit memory performance, and thus may be “outshone” by other cues (Smith 1988). In contrast, however, these traces may have a substantial impact upon implicit memory, which requires no assessments of diagnosticity, instead relying entirely upon accessibility. Moreover, researchers have argued that emotional experiences might often be more implicit or unconscious in nature (Kihlstrom 1993), which suggests, in accordance with the encoding specificity principle, that investigations of the effects of such ads on implicit memory may shed light on previously conflicting results by tapping into the unconscious effects of emotions on memory. This paper reports the outcome of two experiments designed to investigate the potential impact of emotional advertising appeals upon consumer implicit versus explicit memory. The first experiment explores the impact of advertising appeals of varying degrees of emotional intensity upon both implicit and explicit memory. Experiment 2 extends these results, investigating the degree to which the diagnosticity of intense emotional experiences can be heightened, via relevance of an emotional appeal to the advertised product, thus improving consumer explicit memory for emotional persuasion appeals,......
