Topic :Most advertisements make products seem much better. (A/D)
An ongoing debate exists over whether most advertisements make products seem much better. Although, there may be some advertisements that do not make products look better, I believe a substantial amount of ads make products appear better for two reasons. First, businesses have to make their ads well in order to impress the prospect buyers. Second, many consumers take advertisements into account when they purchase something.
To begin with, there are always a lot of competitors in every businesses so many companies put a substantial amount of money and time on advertisements to make their products better. So the prospective consumers can be impressed. Other businesses may not put any efforts on advertising because they think it is just a waste of money, however, it is one of the most efficient tools to pursue profits. For example, I have online shop that sells vintage apparels and to compete with a numerous other online shops I had to put a great chunk of money into advertising. Since it is all about how much your site can be exposed to perspective customers. However, I had to put more effort on the ads to make our products seem much better, so I came up with some promising and catchy keywords such as “all products are all free shipping”, “everything 50% off” in order to attract customers. Consequently, this was very effective because I could see our profits skyrocketed during that ads were on. In this sense, I strongly believe most advertisements make product seem much better because this directly affects their profits.
In addition, advertisements exert great influences on people when we think of buying something. Some people may say they are not affected by advertisements; however, most people get influenced by ads. For example, when my mom was watching TV she saw an ad for a bag she likes. The commercial made it look very nice and functional so my mom made her mind to buy it. So the next day, she went to the department store and bought the bag she saw on TV. As we can see from this example, advertisements play a key role on attracting consumers. If there were no ads at all it will be hard for people to decide what to buy.
In conclusion, I firmly believe that the majority of advertisements make products seem much better for the reasons I mentioned above. First, it is the most efficient tool for businesses to appeal to prospective consumers and second, it also put a great effects on when people buying something.
