Some people say that advertising is extremely successful at persuading us to buy things. Other people think that advertising is so common that we no longer pay attention to it.

Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.


Answer:

Advertising becomes popular nowadays and its availability is escalating day by day. While some people think that advertising is immensely fruitful at persuading people to purchase things. Others think that advertising is so usual that people are not that much intrigued by it.

It is certainly true that some advertising company make it looks like the products they are showcasing is much more imperative for the buyers than the company’s profit. There are also have some psychological factors to lure the people such as they innovatively present their product and create some shorts of thrill to create curiosity to this product among the people. In this way, people also be more attracted towards their product and they will also be succeeded to manipulate people for purchasing things.

However, there are also have some people who sometimes ignore the fact that all advertisements are not for entertainment purposes only. They also contain significant issues related to our daily happening, for instance, bullying social network abusing, disease-related awareness, health tips, consciousness against dowry, and so on. When people watch tv they do not want to see the advertisement therefore, they either change the channel or close the tv. In case you of YouTube when they watch videos, they often click on stop seeing ad that means they do not wish to see this advertisement. They think that it is a common thing they do not need to pay attention to anymore. Nevertheless, sometimes it is also true that advertisements are so repetitive that people feel bored and sometimes they spam the email.

To recapitulate, an advertisement can be successful at persuading people but not all the time. Therefore, they have to be more creative and their product must fulfill the people's demands. Their design and presentation should be in a correct way so that they can be highly successful.

Feedback

(1) This feels like a sentence with no meaning. Did advertising just start becoming popular? I would suggest saying something like:

It is impossible to go anywhere these days without seeing some form of advertising in front of our faces, whether it is driving down the road or looking at our phone.

(2) What do you mean shorts?

(3) I think you would need to explain this more to use as an example, as dowries are not so common in other countries.

(4) If you watch Youtube in English, you will see that there is often a button labelled "Skip Ad" to continue watching without seeing the ad.

My thoughts

Companies spend a great deal of money on advertising. If it wasn't an effective way to sell more products, then they wouldn't advertise would they? I would have discussed something about this. Obviously they must have some success, otherwise they wouldn't advertise. Wouldn't you agree?
