You are at home in bed, tired, hair tied up, wearing your old socks, and a big t-shirt, trying to watch “Marley and Me”; it is at the part where the two main characters are adopting the dog from the pound and then a commercial comes on. It is not just a normal commercial, it is the ASPCA dog commercial. The sad music plays and pictures of cute, injured puppies appear on the screen, a voice then begins to tell you about how these animals deserve to be treated like people, and donating to their foundation will help save them. This is a type of psychology because you’re already feeling sad because of the movie, but now you’re seeing a sad commercial about dogs; this can make you think that adopting a dog is a good idea and is really what you …show more content…
But many successful marketers regularly employ psychology in appealing to consumers. Smart, skillful, honest markets use psychology legally, ethically, and respectfully to attract and engage consumers, and compel them to buy” (Rosenthal, 1). There are five psychological tactics marketers use to influence consumer behavior, those five are: run emotional ideas, highlight your flaws, reposition your competition, promote exclusivity, and introduce fear, uncertainty, and doubt. “ Run Emotional” discusses how there have been “studies that show emotional and psychological appeals to resonate more with consumers than feature and functional appeals. Demonstrating how that new computer will improve a potential customer’s life tends to have more influence rather than explaining how it works: (Rosenthal, 4). In “Highlight your Flaws” it brought up how they will bring up the companies flaws rather than letting the consumer find out/ discover them then comment on them. It is better that the marketer does this before the consumer because then it prevents putting negative images or thoughts in their head. Next “Reposition your Competition” is about changing the position a certain business has in the consumer mind, meaning make their product or company become more important to them than it might have previously been. Also, knocking down other companies under yours in the consumer 's head without the consumer even realizing you are doing so. “Promote Exclusivity” is where you make the consumer feel important. “People want to feel important; like they’re part of an exclusive group. That’s why advertising sometimes days: “We’re not for everyone.” Perhaps the most famous modern example of exclusivity in advertising is the American Express tagline: “Membership has its privileges.” But to make an exclusivity appeal work in the long run, marketers must mean what they say. Empty claims tend to be counterproductive” (Rosenthal, 10-11).

In “What We Are to Advertisers” and “Men’s Men and Women’s Women” both Twitchell and Craig reveal how advertisers utilize stereotypes to manipulate and persuade consumers into purchasing their products. Companies label their audience and advertise to them accordingly.

While flipping idly through any magazine that can be picked off the rack, people are inundated with many ads. Each advertisement loudly clamors for the attention of its “target audience”, the people that will buy whatever product or service is being sold. Unless you are willing to become a hermit to avoid advertising, manufacturers (and the ads designed by each manufacturer for each product they make) will target you to sell products that not everyone wants and not everyone needs every day in America. As a society, Americans are overexposed to advertisements and are subsequently inoculated against the use of logic, unable or unwilling to see when an advertisement is inaccurate or false. Mother Earth News, a niche magazine for survivalists,

In the novel, consumerism is used as a means to control and pacify the population. This is achieved by conditioning people to believe that happiness and identity depend on material goods. Consumerism is also prevalent today, as advertising and marketing are designed to get people to buy more and more. People are constantly bombarded with advertisements, and many feel that their happiness and identity depend on their possessions. This is evident in the rise of online shopping, social media, and the culture of conspicuous consumption.
Marketing process has four major phases: Firstly, understanding the market environment and the requirements of the customers; Secondly, creating the product or providing the service that the customers need and expect; Thirdly, communicating with the target market for promoting the product/service and adding perceived value to your offering, and Finally; delivering an offering to the customer that they demanded (Elliott, Rundle-Thiele, & Waller, 2008). Another way to explain marketing and its process is that the idea that marketing is basically needed to understand customers' needs, to create goods and services to fulfill those needs, and to develop new skills to reinforce the new attitudes or consumption patterns (Alderson, 1952). Understanding the market is the key for the marketers as the product or service to be created or provided by the business depends on how well the marketers are able to determine the customers’
Advertisements: Exposed When viewing advertisements, commercials, and marketing techniques in the sense of a rhetorical perspective, rhetorical strategies such as logos, pathos, and ethos heavily influence the way society decides what products they want to purchase. By using these strategies, the advertisement portrayal based on statistics, factual evidence, and emotional involvement give a sense of need and want for that product. Advertisements also make use of social norms to display various expectations among gender roles along with providing differentiation among tasks that are deemed with femininity or masculinity. Therefore, it is of the advertisers and marketing team of that product that initially have the ideas that influence
Madison Bumgarner Mrs. Gallos English III Honors 22 March 2018 Is Your Service Dog Legally Certified? Even though many people believe emotional support dogs are considered service dogs and should have the same rights as the others, owners of service dogs are treated unfairly because of the increase in numbers of fake service dogs.
