    4. 4. WHY DO YOU THINK ADVERTISERS LIKE TO TARGET TEENAGERS?
    5. 5. • We live in a consumer culture (a culture driven by buying things) and advertisers want to make money. • Adverts are not always aimed at the same audience. They are targeted at a specific demographic (such as middle-aged females, or school-age teenagers). WHY ARE WE SURROUNDED BY SO MANY ADVERTS? • It’s easy to prey on teenagers because they: have many insecurities; are prone to peer pressure; have a desire to ‘fit in’ or ‘be cool’ and respond well to humour. • Advertisers target many of these characteristics in their strategies to make their product sell. WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT TEENAGERS?
    6. 6. • What adverts appeal to you but not your parents? • Why do advertisers market to teens? TARGETING TEENS Teens are considered the largest consumer demographic, or grouping of people that buy things; teens are thought to have disposable income, or money that can be spent on luxury items or things you don’t really need; teens greatly influence their peers and parents; establishing brand loyalty, or dedication to a certain brand, at a young age ensures that brand is bought for the rest of that teen’s life.)
    7. 7. • Buying a lifestyle, not a product • Selling an ‘image’, not a product • Attracting your attention with humour • Attracting your attention with shock This advert is telling you that if you drink enough milk, not only will you lose weight, you might look like Beyoncé too! This advert sells a lifestyle and an image. Beyoncé takes up more of the frame so your attention is drawn to her. The colour scheme is complementary to her gold dress giving you the idea of success, wealth and warmth. GENERAL ADVERTISING STRATEGIES
