Advertisement Success and the Use of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos 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.
Final Draft: Volkswagen vs. Lexus Over the last few decades, American culture has been forever changed by the huge amount of advertisement the people are subjected to.

State Farm With the emerging technological innovation, several companies have adopted different marketing techniques to make themselves popular and gain ground in the competitive market space. The use of television commercials has been one of the most utilized technique to disseminate information about products and services that are branded by particular company or organization (Gass and Seiter 23). When one watches television, he or she is always bombarded by several commercials with many marketing messages which are repeated over and over during television commercial breaks. Most of these television commercials utilize several similar persuasive or rhetoric techniques aimed at luring one either to buy, vote, or to otherwise influence him
Attitudes are evaluations of people, objects, and ideas. (Akert, 2013) Cognitively based attitudes are based on thoughts and beliefs one has about an object, and this attitude provides pros and cons of an object, so we can decide if we want to be associated with it or not. Affectively based attitudes are based more on people’s feelings and values than on their beliefs about the nature of an attitude object. (Akert, 2013) The elaboration likelihood model is the umbrella for this topic, because it explains the two ways in which persuasion can change someone attitude. The two ways are persuasion through the central route and the persuasion through the peripheral route. The elaboration likelihood model refers to processing the message which is related to the cognitively based attitudes. Persuasive communication is most successful in changing attitudes when going through the central route because the audience is motivated, whereas with the peripheral route the audience is not motivated. Now I am going to discuss the routes of persuasion through advertisements in detail.
Imagery and emphasis can create memorable commercials. Emotions inside of commercial viewers are used to sell products in modern day society. Commercials are careful of how they use symbolism inside of their advertisements. Vivid coloring can inspire powerful positive feelings in a viewer, but grim coloring could create a negative feeling. People could feel positive feelings when considering to buy a product such as the Apple iPad. Scenes within the Apple commercial help to inspire the thought through strategic marketing. The commercial makers were careful in their placement of imagery and product placement. They also had intelligent choices in who they chose to narrate their commercial.

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.

The main idea in the article “Product Placement and Advergming” by Michael Solomon is the usage of real products or brands in fictional movies, television shows, and video games and its effects on todays’ growing economy. The first point that the author brings up is that at one time in history the television networks ordered that if a name brand product was to be operated into in any film, it needed to be altered. Solomon gives the example of Melrose Place transforming the name of a cell phone from “Nokia” to “Nokio”. However, in today’s media world there is a widespread variety of name brands incorporated into the networks. Sometimes companies pay billions of dollars to get recognition and other times they just get lucky with free advertisement. Correspondingly, the author states that now- a- days it is so common to see products
Introduction When analysing all of the advertising around us, sometimes we don’t look at what the true message of a commercial really is. We live in a world that is controlled by mass media and because of this advertisers are trying harder each year to outdo themselves and their competitors. Rhetors use techniques in their advertisements such as fantasies or surrealism to catch the attention of their audience. Companies like Audi pour millions of dollars into their marketing teams to make sure their cars look the best and attract consumers. Commercials that are shown on television today are great examples of rhetorical artifacts because of the many techniques being exercised by the rhetor. Analyzing this through the lens of rhetorical
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Media is everywhere, it became a part of our life. We are exposed to thousands of ad messages every day and it's hard to imagine how it would feel to live without them constantly surrounding us. Today we see ads in print publications, TV commercials, emails, on different products, massively scattered in sport venues, and it’s even spreading into public spaces. In his documentary, Morgan Spurlock delivered a fascinating satire of the process of placing products into movies and tried to delve into the nature of advertising in our society.
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.

Selling Happiness: The Illusion of Persuasion in Advertising In today 's society, it is nearly impossible to go anywhere without the potential of seeing advertisements. “It is is the corners of elevators, as you play golf, and there are ads in the bottom of the cups. We see it as we look to the sky and see skywriting, or as a bus passes by, and there is an ad scrawled across the side. Advertising is everywhere and suffocating us” (Goodman, 2004). Despite the bombardment of advertisements we face on a daily basis, as consumers, we have become progressively proficient in avoidance of these marketing ploys. Particularly in relation to television programming, viewer attention has declined as the ability to skip over commercials through DVR has become available. Unfortunately, this poses an issue for marketing executives as commercial programming, and product placement are an essential tool in cultivating a consumer base. Studies found that “80% of our life is emotion and 20% thought. Since then, we have seen a shift in how the market operates to cater towards how the consumers feel rather than how they think. How we think is on the outside, but how we feel is at our core which assists in cultivating a new customer base” (2004). In recent years, these statistics have become a staple in redesigning how individuals experience advertisements. Using these, we continue to promote a culture of materialism in correlation to satisfaction and overall happiness achieved through the
