  • 2. The Advertising Genre
    • What is the function of advertisements?
    • To sell you something
    • To persuade you to change brands

    • To inform you of something
  • 3. The different types of advert
    • Narrative adverts:
    • Does it use fiction conventions such as character, locations, story/plot?
  • 4.
    • Parody adverts: has it taken its structure/ style/ ideas from another advert or genre?
    • Thirty Second Shout: This is where you are given a lot of information very quickly about a brand or offer ( e,g, the BOGOF campaigns for Safestyle windows)

    • Informative : Government adverts such as drink driving ads and speed ads.
    • Series : Some adverts belong to part of a long running series e.g. Cleaner Close and Mini-advertures and BT

    • USP ( Unique selling point/proposition): When the advert picks out one key way their product is superior or unique to its competitors.
    • Slogans : A final way to sum up what your product is all about or your USP (I’m loving it!)
    • Logos ; Also sum up the brand image of the product.
    • Voice over or captions as narrative device.
  • 7.
    • Facts and Figures : To make the product more credible e.g. 8 out of 10

    • Stereotypes : An easy and quick way to put across information about people and places when you only have an image or 30 seconds.
