The return on investment (ROI) refers to measuring how effectively a company’s advertising will reach their market and achieve a certain profit in comparison to the amount of effort and capital required to so. Companies want to receive the highest ROI possible(28-29,37-38). We have gone from simple ads in print, to radio commercials, to TV commercials and now the internet. The price of commercials has risen and a large percentage of print ads have been replaced with internet ads. Because of the many changes that have taken place within advertising and media there is no longer a consistent model for determining audience value across the vast communication vehicles we currently use for advertising today. Since each communication outlet has its own challenge for measuring its audience response, the ROI has become difficult to assess or predict. There is also the concern that the emphasis on short-term audience involvement may devalue the long term values of advertising which would affect the brand value since, brand building is a continuing process that often takes years to accomplish.
Brand equity is the value that has been placed on a product or service, by its consumers, distributors and…...

...What has advertising done to us? Advertising is the making of a representation of products in order to persuade the audience to find their need of those products, including all kinds of goods, services, and even ideas. With the development of digital media and print media, more and more advertisements have been flooding into our life these years. Advertising, the fiercely mooted current topic in recent times, has both positive and negative impact on society and people’s behavior. Firstly, advertising does enormous efforts in stimulating the growth of the economy. People have the possibility to know every now invents in the first place through advertisements, so the demand of products goes up. In the mean time, the increasing demand of products will lower the overall cost of production. This can lead to lower market price and further result in the expanding willing of buying more products. Consequently, a virtuous and beneficial economic cycle has been formed with the catalysis of advertising. However, the attracting advertisements can also lead to a totally opposite result, the overuse of money on unnecessary and inferior goods. Advertisements normally pay attention to the advantages that consumers would have rather than focusing on the products themselves. This means costumers will never know the weakness of the products. Usually, fancy words are used on advertisements. They can draw lots of people to buy their special-for-you products. Unfortunately, the...

...Do advertisers make our culture better or worse? Should there be less advertising in our society? These question and many other questions I was asking myself while I was watching this report. No one can deny that consumers need the advertisings, but not which kind of advertising they need. Consumers need only the honest advertisings. They need it to inform them about the new product, new promotion or sales of an existing product, hours of operation, and so on. I do not have any problem with the fact of existing of the advertisings, but I have a big problem about the amount of the advertisements and how they are very distractive. The ratio of messages that benefits advertisers to the ratio that benefits the consumers is wildly unfavorable to the consumers. For example, let’s say that in a given day the consumers see or hear hundred advertisements of some sort. In a typical day the number of those messages that benefit the advertisers will be hundred, but how many messages will benefit the consumers? I have to admit, that watching this report had changed my understanding about the advertisings. The way I am watching the advertisings now is different than the way I used to watch it before. Now I have a feeling that I became more critical and more analytical. I became more conscious about the unconscious messages that the advertisers are trying to send to consumers. I started to notice that I am surrounded by advertising everywhere: on TV, on the internet, in the newspapers...

...QUESTION 1: Key reasons for conflicts between Sales and Marketing. First, Sales department blame to Marketing to set price too high and bring many difficult to Sales in introducing and selling. In addition, Salespeople think Marketing fail in advertising and they don’t have idea about what customer need. Instead of the budget is contributed to Marketing Department, Salespeople will use it more effective. In contrast, mission of Sales is focus on selling and sometime they can’t think about a long term strategy or a plan for future. Although Sales have a good communication with customer, it is just in individual scale not in a developing plan. Second, they have a conflict about price. Sales produce good with a cheaper price than Marketing to attract demand of customer. Marketing want to bring benefit as big as possible to the firm, therefor, they will use the best way to cut the expense and raise the revenue. Beside that, Marketing want to spend their time to set up and think about strategy, they can draw a picture with the large view and future plan. Sales have the different way. They prefer to persuade and communicate with potential customer. In conclusion, I think Sales and Marketing have the same goal that is put their company’s name in customer but they have the different way. Sales focus on number of sale and take care for customer to keep them. Marketing have a larger mission, they have to think about benefit, risk, finance and many other things. Simply, Sales......

...Advertising and publicity are two very different communication tools, even though both employ the mass media as a vehicle for reaching large audiences. • Traditionally, most marketers placed heavy reliance on advertising and only occasionally used publicity. • On the other hand, public relations practitioners have primarily relied on publicity--or, as they sometimes prefer to call it, media relations--and only rarely used advertising. This does not mean that advertising should be seen only as a marketing tool and that publicity should be seen only as a public relations tool. Thoughtfully used, both tools are valuable for both functions. Advertising buys its way into the media. An advertiser purchases air time on a broadcast medium or page space in a print medium and then uses that media time/space to deliver whatever persuasive messages the advertiser chooses to the media's audiences. Presumably, a smart advertiser will purchase ad space in only those media whose audiences are known to be consistent with the target audiences the advertiser wants to reach. • Most often, advertising messages are inducements to purchase a product. • However, advertising space can be used for non-product oriented messages. o "Adver-torials," for instance, are advertising messages which take sides and present a specific view or opinion about public issues. o "Image ads" are those which provide favorable information about an organization and its policies that would not normally be...

...Advertising affects what consumer buy. Ads appeal us many reasons. For example, in the two ads I found for hair-care stuff. The Beachblonde ad is more effective than Frizz-Ease ad because of its use of propaganda, its use of color, its layout. First of all, the Beachblonde ad uses many propaganda devices. For example it uses some loaded words like ‘blonde’, ’shine’, ‘sun-kissed’. But Frizz-Ease uses only ‘amazing’. In addition, Beachblonde ad uses many glittering generalities. ‘Now, anyone can be a Beacblonde’, ‘Get sun-drenched highlights with high-impact shine anytime, any where.’ On the other hand, Frizz-Ease ad uses glittering generalities like ‘You will see amazing transformation’, ‘whether you have dry, wiry or fine hair, there’s a Frizz-Ease Serum perfect for you’. Beachblonde ad uses plain folks appeal, but Frizz-Ease ad doesn’t use it. Thus because of its use of propaganda devices, the Beachblonde ad is more appealing. Besides propaganda techniques, the Beachblonde ad uses better colors. In the Beachblonde ad, it uses several cheerful colors like yellow, light blue, emerald green, and white. Yellow is an attention getter and it is most visible color of all the colors. So it is the number one attention getter. And blue is one of the most popular colors. To American consumers of both genders, blue is the favorite color. In addition, in this ad they use light blue so it means they want to emphasize cheerful. And emerald green is also the color which looks cheerful...

Cosmetic War: the Influence of Cosmetic Advertising in Our Society

...Cosmetic War: 
The Influence of Cosmetic Advertising in our Society Advertising has become a massive part of our social environment, and can be seen at large throughout any industrialized society. Nowadays it is virtually impossible to avoid ads while carrying on with your daily life. Our daily dosage comes from television, radio, magazines, newspapers, billboards, and most recently, social media, among others. The average person is exposed to as many as 5,000 advertisements a day, and nearly 10,000,000 in their lifetime (Gustafson). With that said, advertising’s impact in society is so prevalent that if advertisers do not take caution, it can also become easily detrimental. Cosmetic advertising can be held accountable for feeding especially women with unrealistic results and false standards of beauty. The problems with cosmetic advertising and the effect it has mainly on, but not limited to, women are innumerable. Considering the fact that “cosmetics are a major expenditure for many women, with the cosmetics industry grossing around 7 billion dollars a year,” cosmetic advertising is a practice that should be approached with caution, as it affects so many women daily (Thompson). The most simplistic and widely targeted critique of cosmetic advertising comes from the excessive use of photo manipulation in ads, including Photoshop and the use of filters. These tools create unrealistic images of the benefits the product can actually offer, causing women to become more...

Most commonly, the desired result is to drive consumer behaviour with respect to a commercial offering, although political and ideological advertising is also common.
