ADVERTISEMENT IS YOUR WAY OF SHOWING NEW PRODUCT TO
PERSUADE PEOPLE TO BUY
The psychology of advertising is
complex but the usual, major reason
given for advertisements for established
products is to ensure that the target
audience remains familiar with the
brand, not to directly encourage sales.
Advertisements promote a business or
the message of a nonprofit organization
or government agency.
For example, an advertisement helps a business promote its
product or service. The ad can include the features and
benefits of the products or services offered by that company.
For nonprofits and government agencies, an advertisement
helps spread an important message that can help
individuals. For example, the Centers for Disease Control
often advertise important disease prevention behavior such
as smoking cessation.
As Advertising is a form of communication for marketing and used to
encourage or persuade an audience (viewers, readers or listeners;
sometimes a specific group ) of any age to continue or take some new
action. Most commonly, the desired result is to drive consumer behavior
with respect to a commercial offering, although political and ideological
advertising is also common. In Latin, ad means “to turn the mind toward.”
The purpose of advertising may also be to reassure employees
or shareholders that a company is viable or successful.
Advertising messages are usually paid for by sponsors and
viewed via various means; including mass media such as
newspaper, magazines, television commercial, radio
advertisement, outdoor advertising; or new media such as
blogs, websites or text messages.
Commercial advertisers often seek to generate increased
consumption of their products or services through "branding,"
which involves associating a product name or image with
certain qualities in the minds of consumers.
Non-commercial advertisers who spend money to advertise
items other than a consumer product or service include
political parties, interest groups, religious organizations and
governmental agencies. Nonprofit organizations may rely on
free modes of persuasion, such as a public service
