Resume of the article
The article elucidates GoPro’s decision of using their first-ever scripted ad, the ad marks a significant shift from where GoPro usually focused on, making it clear that the company is trying to reach out for another segment. Despite failures such as their attempt on the drone industry. The company has suffered from a decreasing revenue and shares, pushing them to seek other goals. In this case the goal was to reach out by giving a simple message that can explain why a GoPro is essential for the average Joe. To further maximise their profits and perhaps even double or triple the size of the company.
Primary target group and why
Their “Be A Hero” campaign appeals to a target group that’s, as the article mentions …show more content…
The use of IMC in this case signifies the company’s ability to deliver such message, as they’ve got to be able to use each component properly. Let’s take a look at that.
They use the IMC’s components to reach further into their target group, like when they use several public relations, in this case youtubers that have gone “viral” meaning that they’ve uploaded a video into YouTube that’s got so much recognition to the extent of making it to the top in the popularity section, therefore granting GoPro direct access to the millions of views that can ensure that GoPro’s message is repeatedly seen and shared across YouTube or other social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter.
These videos usually also contribute to the reputation of the brand, as it can seem more trustworthy seen from a Youtubers eyes rather than a GoPro certified worker. Therefore, also to ensure that the viewers perception isn’t obstructed by marketing terms that’s means to attract, but actual comments about the product. That can end up being both negative or
Whenever you drive down the road you see an ad. Whenever you’re on your phone or watching T.V. you will see ads. Ads are all around you wherever you go; it is close to impossible to go a day without seeing one single ad. All ads have one specific purpose, and that purpose is to make viewers intrigued to buy exactly what is being advertised. Advertisers use three strategies to draw viewers to ads, pathos, logos and ethos. These deal with emotions, logic and facts, and credibility. Ads can range anywhere from just words to pictures and if you look hard enough you will be able to locate these appeals within every ad you see. Bauer uses the appeals of pathos, logos and ethos to convince viewers that their hockey stick, the Vapor APX, is far better than any of their competitor’s sticks.
The reason for this is that from the advertisement one could sense an appeal to our sense of identity, self-interest and emotions. It added some amount of excitement and humor. A positive image was created from the video about the Papa John’s Pizza and it really made me feel persuaded to buy the pizza.
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.
Have you ever wondered how advertisers come up with trailers or commercials? Or if there is a formula or specific ingredients for which advertisers make their advertisements? I am here to tell you that there is a formula and there are key ingredients to make an effective trailer or commercial. In the world of commerce professional advertisers use rhetorical devices as their ingredients to cook the best trailer that will attract customers to buy many things. The most common forms of rhetorical devices are pathos, ethos, and logos, these devices make a statement more persuasive but what separates a good advertiser from a great one is the way that they use these devices. Advertisers are experts in using these devices in combination; and the only way to know how to combine them is by studying your audience. Video game advertisers have specific ways to persuade their audience to buy a game. Today I will be studying this pattern in a video game trailer of “The Last of us” by Hydrawlik. I will analyze the combination of rhetorical devices that are used in the trailer and evaluate their effectiveness. This video game trailer uses these rhetorical devices effectively to attract the audience’s attention in order to lure customers to buy the product. Rhetorical devices are used for specific reasons for example Pathos is used to incite emotional responses, logos to prove that the game has exactly what the audience wants, ethos to develop a sense of credibility in the advertiser
Rhetoric ads are being used everywhere to draw attention to audiences. Gatorade is one brand that I caught using this. It is no wonder that it is a popular sporting drink. In the Sweat It to Get It” commercial, a man enters into a store to purchase a couple Gatorades and then heads to the checkout line. The cashier refuses to let the customer purchase the items because he did not meet the full requirements. If the customer was not sweating, he was not worthy for this product. Suddenly, a football athlete then appears in the ad. Cam Newton, a football quarterback, walks into the store covered in sweat. Newton stands besides the sophisticated customer who is well groomed. The athlete bangs the Gatorade bottle out of the man’s hand. This part of the scene was trying to clarify the argument between the stores clerk. This pointed out to the audiences why selling the Gatorade to that customer would have been a mistake. Gatorade expands their ad to the next level with a humor to get the audiences attention to buy their merchandise.
The message conveyed throughout the advertisement is simply representing humanity, our hunt for adventure, our curiosity into the unknown, and our various passions in life. For instance, in the commercial, it depicts people chasing a storm and a scuba diver examining a coral reef. This illustrated that humans naturally have a thrill for adventure and experiencing new things. Additionally, this also depicts people’s curiosity and thirst for exploration. Another example would be the short videos of human passion for athletics and recording the Earth’s beauty. This portrays that
New Balance comes at its audience in this new ad on YouTube.com with intent of drawing in multiple groups of patrons to their gear with the simple message “Beta”. Beta is defined on the webpage of the commercial as, “Beta is a state of being. A choice to never stop. Driven by the relentless desire to improve. Beta means constantly innovating. Evolving. And Pushing. Beta means improving upon yesterday. And always being better tomorrow”(). The advertisement that sells the product of New Balance is effective because of its rhetorical appeals: logos, ethos, pathos, and its logical fallacies: bandwagon and weasel words.
The words they use in the caption provide a sense that they know what they're talking about. These words and the presence of a website provide a sense of credibility as well. Using both pathos and ethos create believability in the ad that compels the ones who see it to believe the words written on the
Evansville Police say body camera video proves one of its officers did not act improperly during a traffic stop. It stems from an incident in August that involved former city councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff-Riley.

This allowed our customers to keep in contact with us and tell us what they would like to possibly see with future products. There was such a craze behind Sik 50s professional freestyle dirt bikers came to us wanting to make a video. There are a couple videos out called Nutz from parts 1 to 3.

In today’s market of technology and visual stimulation it becomes more and more important for advertising campaigns to stand out and be innovative, and it is this idea that drove one Canadian beer company to do something that had never been done before. In light of waning interest, Kokanee, owned by the Labatt Brewing Company, enlisted the help of Toronto based Grip advertising agency to (with its entire yearly marketing budget) create something really big for there next campaign. Grip’s innovative response to this challenge was to do something completely new and create an ad in the form of a full-length feature film, which they would call: “The Movie Out Here”
The naked brand documentary highlights the fact that advertising can be more than a company selling its product to the consumer, but a way to connect with the consumer to deliver exactly what they want while still making profits.
Initial discussions on IMC were based on definitions and theoretical understanding, and this discussion is still taking place. IMC or Integrated Marketing Communications according to Schultz (1993) combine and evaluate strategic role of diverse communications to produce a greater impact. It is a process that produces and applies different communication programs starting with the customer and work back to outline right approaches and procedures to progress throughout these influential programs. Another source sees it as a business process that aims to plan, implement and assess influential marketing communications over time. There isn’t a clear definition for it, each source rely on a different definition however according to all found IMC is identified as a strategic process. It’s composed of three main basics: consumer, channels and evaluation of performances. Consumer gives an idea of how an exchange of information affects message’s form and content. Communication channels analyze each channel in apart to
