Stride’s commercials are very upfront, blatantly stating that other gum brands are boring, and if customers aren’t boring they’ll buy Stride. Stride persuades buyers that Stride is the fun, outgoing brand. Stride also uses humor, poking fun at other widely known companies such as apple products and the iPhone brand. One billboard purposely used the same font and quotes underneath to advertise their gum, but also make fun of the new iPhone saying “Chewing redefined. Again.”(Andrew 1). The humor in their advertisements makes them likeable, and in turn boosts their sales. Wrigley’s 5 Gum has more underlying persuasions. In advertisements with intense drama, they do not say it, but if someone buys their gum they buy those mysterious traits. Wrigley’s 5 Gum wants a buyer to feel like they are buying the superiority, so in their ads they are above humor and trash talk (Horovitz 1). When buying gum it is like purchasing an identity and with Stride and 5 Gum you are buying two opposite identities. One is creative and humorous; the other is enigmatic and
Advertising is a complicated form of marketing, it’s almost like an art form. One must be acutely aware of their audience and what captures their attention, otherwise the advertisement will fall flat. There is a myriad of different ways to lure consumers into buying a product; for example, the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) managed through a series of advertisements to convince individuals of the importance in getting a vaccination for the influenza virus. It was applied using multiple techniques, namely the methods of universal appeal and association. These techniques helped the CDC to effectively promotes the flu vaccine and get their message across to a wide range of people.
When people see or hear advertisements, whether it be in a magazine or on television, many do not stop to consider or analyze the techniques that go into making the advertisement effective. For instance, the Center for Disease Control has a campaign that has the purpose of promoting the influenza vaccination. If you examine the campaign closely, it becomes clear that the advertising campaign targets a diverse audience of all ages, genders, and races who could all benefit from getting an influenza vaccination. In this advertisement campaign, the Center for Disease Control effectively promotes the benefits of getting an influenza vaccination to a targeted audience using numerous persuasive techniques such as association and universal appeal.
All around the world in one way or the other, everyone tries to sell an idea or an actual thing. Everyone is always trying to convince each other by using different techniques to sell an idea or a thing. In order to sell and persuade an idea or thing, people have to tell it to an audience by using advertising and rhetorical strategies. Rhetoric is to transform and change a person’s perspective and truly convince them of something. An efficient way that marketers convince through rhetorical strategies is through advertising. A market that uses advertising a lot are beauty commercials like the Dove’s Real Beauty “film” commercial.
Advertisements are everywhere. From billboards, to magazines, to newspapers, flyers and TV commercials, chances are that you won’t go a day without observing some sort of ad. In most cases, companies use these ads as persuasive tools, deploying rhetorical appeals—logos, pathos, and ethos—to move their audiences to think or act in a certain way. The two magazine ads featured here, both endorsing Pedigree products, serve as excellent examples of how these modes of persuasion are strategically used.
The recent, 3D white Strip ad, advertises their products in magazines, TV commercials, and in the newspaper, where people would most likely stumble upon it. The advertisement is mainly aimed at young adults, where looks are a major factor in finding potential love ones. By looking at the ad, the main objective is for people to get white teeth by using their product. To grab the audience’s attention, Crest places Shakira face in the center of the ad page with her beautiful smile being the point of interest. Her smile displays her white teeth, and that is a direct result of using the 3D crest strips. Under Shakira’s face, Crest places their product with a caption to provide details that their product not only works for Shakira, it can work for everyone with its Flexfit technology. By placing Shakira’s face and the product on their ad, many people will feel motivated to have white teeth because they know by using Crest’s products, they too, can obtain white teeth like Shakira. That includes me, just by looking at this ad, I too, would like to have white teeth just like
The psychological appeal for the ad is Logos, an appeal to logic or reason, providing evidence facts and or statistics although the facts can be false. In the ad you hear a voice saying “no food lowers cholesterol more” and that is the “number one seeling plant sterol plant spread in Australia.” While hearing the narrator list off facts you see an animation that shows a diagram of how the spread works showing he butter forming a net and blocking off the cholesterol while a large stamp appears in the bottom corner of the screen reading “clinically proven” while the narrator emphasises reading that line so it stands out and sticks in your memory. Now next time when you are in the supermarket purchasing a spread you are attracted to that product
The two commercials that I thought were persuasive were the Skittles commercial and the Ford commercial.These commercials were in my opinion the most persuasive out of all the commercials because they used humor, and they were still very persuasive. The ford commercial being more persuasive than the skittles commercial I still liked them both equally.The Skittles commercial was more about being humorous rather than being so persuasive but was still very persuasive.
My mom is the biggest supporter that I have, and Procter and Gamble (P&G) demonstrates this perfectly in their commercial. This commercial was featured during the 2016 Rio Olympics for a universal audience to see. Procter and Gamble put together a tear-jerking, heart warming, incredibly relatable commercial to promote their products and what they stand for as a company. They appeal to everyone who had a mom who supported them in some way and especially target moms who care for their children and want what is best for them. The usage of ethos, logos, pathos, and kairos play a very important role in ensuring their commercial is effective. Rhetorical fallacies are also important to P&G for making a persuasive and effective argument, although that argument may be false. The usage of
Over the last few decades, American culture has been forever changed by the huge amount of advertisement the people are subjected to. Advertising has become such an integral part of society, many people will choose whether or not they want to buy a product based only on their familiarity with it rather than the product’s price or effectiveness. Do to that fact, companies must provide the very best and most convincing advertisements as possible. Those companies have, in fact, done
The main purpose of commercials and advertisements is to persuade the viewer to purchase the product that is advertised, but not all commercials are successful in this endeavor. Companies, such as Budweiser and Kleenex, appeal to the viewers’ ethos, logos, and pathos in order to influence them to buy the advertised product(s). In order to appeal to each of the categories, companies use different tactics to catch viewers’ attention. The use of ethos, logos, and pathos can make or break an advertisement based on how it is being used.
Crest, a toothpaste company, is known to be one of the world’s biggest dental hygiene businesses. They sell many products, including floss, toothpaste, toothbrushes, teeth whitening, and mouthwash. Their advertisements are in magazines, on television, and heard on the radio. The most common place one hears promotional Crest advertising is at your local dentist and orthodontist office. These Crest products may even be advertised in one’s own bathroom near the faucet. Crest’s main purpose of this advertisement is to lets its audience know the severity of oral hygiene. Crest’s uses efficient advertising to get its main message across by persuading its audience into buying its product by, explaining necessary precautions, targeting the appropriate audience, introducing credible information, playing on emotions, using strategic devices, and using creative weasel words.
When it comes to the topic of commercials, most of us readily agree that commercials are irritating. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the purpose of the commercial. Whereas some are convinced that commercials are meaningless, others maintain that commercials tell a story. Effective commercials are repetitive and illustrate a story. Marketers use rhetoric marketing, the art of persuasive speaking and writing, when persuading an audience to buy a product. Rhetoric marketing is especially effective through the illustration of a story. It is effective because the marketer is able to relate to the consumer with a story or message. Advertisers also use the appeals of logic, credibility, and emotions to intrigue interest in a company. Coca-Cola’s advertisement, “Falling,” depicts the product as a confidence building companion suitable for young love through a series of logical and emotional appeals that visibly promotes the brand’s credibility.
Informative advertising creates brand awareness and knowledge of the new products, where persuasive advertising aims to create liking and preference, resulting in the purchase of the new product (Kotler, Keller, 2012). Therefore both informative and persuasive advertising are will be very important consideration for the Sonic as it begins to use consumer advertising.
Persuasion is a part of our everyday lives. Whether we are persuading our mother, using persuasion through speech, or threw advertisements, we are using rhetoric strategies to get the response we desire. With the help of minor details in many advertisements, Ethos, Logos, and Pathos are a way of persuading the audience to buy or think a certain way. A Colgate toothbrush commercial used Logos, Pathos and Ethos to spread the word that they have the best toothbrush of all, in which they target everyone who has teeth. Through the use of advertisements, Colgate has convinced the world that they have the best toothbrushes, they’re even recommended by dentists.
