Section 3 -3 Separating Fact from Fiction
Evaluating Advertisements ¡ Limited information ¡ Positive Images ¡ Celebrity Endorsements ¡ Appeal to basic needs ¡ Scare tactics ¡ False claims ¡ Infomercials
Limited Information ¡ Advertisements often give only the facts that will encourage you to buy without telling the whole story.
Positive Images ¡ ¡ An ad may use images of things that people feel positively about, such as friendship or a good appearance. The advertiser hopes that the consumer will associate those images and feelings with the product.
Celebrity Endorsement ¡ Some ads show popular performers or athletes promoting the product. They don’t’ tell you whether the person actually uses the product in real life. l Examples: Jessica Simpson and PROACTIV ¡ Tiger Woods and NIKE ¡
Can you think of anymore?
Appeal to basic needs Advertisers may focus on ways the product meets a need for security or self-esteem. ¡ They try to convince you that this product will make you look or feel better. ¡
Scare tactics ¡ Advertisers may play on people’s fears of aging or developing a medical condition by claiming that their product can prevent or relieve the symptoms or provide essential nutrients.
Infomercials ¡ Infomercials are TV ads made to look like regular consumer programs or televised news reports. Unless you look carefully, you may believe your watching something you’re not!
False Claims Ads may make claims that are not true, such as fast or guaranteed results. ¡ Remember, if a claim sounds too good to be true, it usually is. ¡
