Words: 3016 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 24694846

Advertising Q’s
What does it mean to say that “money is invested in advertising?” Is all advertising an investment? Illustrate.
When one says that “money is invested in advertising” it quite literally means that money is invested in producing ads. For example, as Olson (2001) points out, the cost of producing a 30-second TV spot is roughly half a million dollars. That’s a lot of money for one commercial—but major corporations will typically spend millions, if not billions on advertising every year. Today, advertising has moved into the digital sphere as well, with billions more being invested in online marketing (Edelman, Ostrovsky & Schwarz, 2007). Companies competing in the marketplace have to do something to stand out, to differentiate themselves (Trout & Rivkin, 2006).

Effects of advertisement type and mode of presentation on ability to recall

Words: 1825 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 467760

The advertising and marketing sectors have seen the use of novel tools like cell phones, computer network, internet and computerized games in the modern eras. The effects of such novel tools as well as the explosion of broadcasting stations has led to stiff rivalry within the current advertising sector. Moreover, diverse broadcasting networks have to contend with redundancy in the conventional methods of advertising they used previously due to the disintegration of the consumers, market overload as well as reduced consumer focus.
