In Advertisements R Us by Melissa Rubin, she analyzes how advertisements appeal to its audience and how it reflects our society. Rubin describes a specific Coca-Cola ad from the 1950’s that contains a “Sprite Boy”, a large -Cola Coca vending machine, a variety of men, ranging from the working class to members of the army, and the occasional female. She states that this advertisement was very stereotypical of society during that decade and targeted the same demographic: white, working-class males- the same demographic that the Coca-Cola factories employed.

Fowles gives details and examples on how each appeal is used and how advertisements can “form people’s deep-lying desires, and picturing states of being that individuals privately yearn for” (552). The minds of human beings can be influenced by many basic needs for example, the need for sex, affiliation, nurture,

Advertising is a form of propaganda that plays a huge role in society and is readily apparent to anyone who watches television, listens to the radio, reads newspapers, uses the internet, or looks at a billboard on the streets and buses.

Whether it is a pop-up ad, flyer, billboard, or television commercial, it is inevitable to not see a single commercial as one goes about their day. Sponsors will constantly find a way to advertise their product or service, even if it is not wanted. People will go to extensive lengths to avoid watching commercials at all cost, whether they use an ad blocker or buy a subscription service, they want to evade any interruptions that may disrupt what they actually want to watch. Despite how annoying commercials can be, they are an essential aspect of a company persuading people to buy their product or service. The main way sponsors use commercials to persuade is the use of classic rhetorical appeals, such as ethos (appeal to ethics), logos (appeal to logic), and pathos (appeal to emotion).

It’s no secret that companies spend a lot of time, effort, and money on just one single advertisement – possibly much more than one might think. When creating an ad, there are many aspects that the company needs to consider. The arrangement of objects on a single page, the colors used that the viewer will easily notice, and the words that the corporation have methodically strung together are all crucial characteristics when an advertisement is in the making. An advertisement for Del Monte, in the magazine Ladies’ Home Journal, has done a spectacular job in meeting these standards when promoting their fresh cut green beans.
This literature review focus on digital marketing, advertising to children and use of digital device. While many new marketing technique are being developed using the internet and digital devices as communication tools, little literature will consider the implications for children in-depth.
