Writing: Write your opinion about advertising
Adverts are everywhere. There are hoardings in the streets, leaftles in your letter box, jingles on the radio, commercials on the TV, brochures in shops, glossy ads in magazines, personal ads in newspapers, handwritten ads on the supermarket wall and famous faces on the sides of buses. Advertising is a huge industry that uses emotions, logic, snobbery, beauty, music, truth and lies to make you spend your money.
Of course adverts influence us. If they didn’t the companies wouldn’t spend so much money on them. Just think of the power of a good slogan. Something, like “Just Do It” fixes a brand name in people’s minds and so that’s the brand they choose in the shops.
Avderts have the subconscious effect. When you’re in the supermarket and you pick a product off the shelf, it’s probably because you’ve heard of the brand name or seen the logo, and you feel you can trust it. That’s effect of advertising.
As far as I am concerned, I don’t like a lot of adverts on TV. I think, adverts influence my choice but I always compare the prices to get the best deal and save money.
In conclusion, I must say that development of our society is impossible without adverts.
