Extracts from this document...


Analysing Advertisements - English Coursework A Comparison Between Two Mobile Phone Advertisements Advertising has been one of the most outstanding ways of making money and introducing or boosting the sales of a particular product or service. With the growing competition today manufacturers make a stupendous contribution to the advertising industry to maintain their survival and reputation in the market. Advertising has created an enormously gigantic industry today. An average of more than thirty percent of profit of a company is spent on advertising. In today's world advertisement has a huge impression on the consumers market. Nearly everywhere we will see the placement of different advertisement, some on buses, magazines, newspapers and television. Every advertisement depends on a number of characteristics particularly the type of media to be involved, newspaper or magazine or even television. An advertiser needs to be aware of his target in the society (age group, gender etc.), and how to approach them.

Hence we can say each advert has its similarities and differences but has the same objective of selling their product. The 'Smalltalk advert' is based more on a technical manner but lacks the touch of professionalism and releases the data raw.
