... d stereotype in society around women that preys on the human fear of the unknown. This only hinders the female's struggle for equality. The final concept that I observed was that of tokenism. The working women of the 90's is becoming more and more accepted , but advertisements still cannot seem to divorce themselves from the concept that the work place is just another medium in which their consumers can display themselves. They feel obligated to include the token women in work place environments who seem to enjoy modeling the latest style of working clothes, like one ad I saw which was selling the great little office dress. Little being the operative word in that sentence. They promote t ...

In order for a company to succeed, it is almost necessary for them to advertise their product. Most advertisements are often criticized for encouraging materialistic values and promoting that what one posseses is more important than who one is (Tedlow 4).

When testimonials are used people are claiming personal success stories about a product. The problem that exists is that there is no way to know if the testifying party is credible.

After working in the sales market for three years you begin to recognize certain things about your customers. You realize that your mood can affect their buying habits and how the attitudes can affect how you approach a prospective sale. If a person comes in showing that they have no idea about your market, you have to take the time to basically introduce them to your product. You tell them the advantages and disadvantages that your product offers. If they come in having knowledge of your product, you ask them to tell you what they already know and then correct them if there is anything they have been misinformed about.

Is Advertising Ethical - 1,153 words
Advertisers main purpose is to make consumers aware of new products and services and to persuade them to buy. Granted advertising does differ from the news and entertainment media, but that doesnt mean it should not have to follow similar ethical standards. Advertising, too, should be held to the truth, as many people take it at face value and gullibly believe all or most of what is said. Although it is true that we should learn how to interpret advertisings, it is not our responsibility to interpret an advertisements honesty and accuracy. The definition of truth in this case should be the leaving out of any false statements used in an effort to deceive, and all relevant information, the goo ...

Aggressive Advertising - 1,066 words
Advertisements are everywhere, traveling by all ways possible, infiltrating the privacy that every person holds important to themselves and their family. Ads may travel inconspicuously, while the final message they deliver through radio, TV, or billboards, is a harmful nuisance, and one that may root itself unscrupulously into the unconscious minds of honest people. Companies have taken on such aggressive promotional measures that advertising has become degrading, disruptive, and destructive. One of the most corrupt forms of advertising comes from cigarette companies. Cigarette advertisements are degrading not only because the products behind them are proven to be a health hazard, but becaus ...

The Art Of Advertising: Newtype Usa - 680 words
"If advertising is not an official or state art, it is nonetheless clearly art" (Schudson). This wonderful quote clearly describes the type of advertising found in Newtype USA. The three most used techniques by advertisers in this magazine is the use of minimalist art, color, and beautiful scenery. All of these techniques appeal to an artist, and most people who watch anime tend to draw in their spare time. This makes sense considering all of the products they have in Newtype are all Japanese animation (anime). While looking through this magazine I found that every single advertisement was beautiful. Anybody that draws can appreciate the beauty of animation and in the end the quality of the ...

Patterns In Medicinal Advertising - 1,170 words
One of the most innovative trends in print advertising is medicine advertisement. The content of these particular advertisements (ads) are intriguing to me. I intend to analyze five medicinal ads to find the tools used by advertisers and to explore the positive and negative aspects of advertising medicine through print ads for the public. The people who develop ads to market prescription medicine products must have an inkling of what the reader wants to see. For instance, the ads in a parenting magazine most often target mothers. The ads in a sports magazine predominately target athletes. How do the advertisers know what the reader will respond to? Patterns are tools that help us to narrow o ...

Subliminal Advertising - 634 words
Throughout mass media there are illegal messages that still appear, such images are also known as Subliminal Advertising. Though illegal, such incidences can never be tried nor taken to a court of law. It is highly impossible and unlikely to notice these messages. However, they are triggered by the subconscience and send neural messages to your brain that you are unaware of, thus making it hard to notice when you are seeing these things. They are illegal because it was believed in earlier incidences that cigarette ads were sending similar messages telling the youths of America to smoke. I have witnessed similar messages called Threshold Messages, these are images that are digitally re-master ...

Use Of "suggestive" Words In Today's Advertising - 504 words
Advertising agencies use suggestive words in advertising campaigns in order to make consumers remember the product. Yet, what do these ads tell consumers about American culture? To answer this question I will be analyzing one specific billboard ad. The ad contradicts social norms. I want to find out what this ad says about American values in order to identify if this tactic is why some ad campaigns are extremely successful while others are not.
