G.C.S.E Media Essay: A comparison of two coffee adverts Introduction In this essay I am going to compare the different approaches used by two different advertising campaigns for coffee. The main aims of the advertisements are to sell the products to the public and to encourage brand loyalty. The target audience are important for planning advertising campaigns because the audience are the people who buy the product. The advert uses stereotypes to appeal to a very wide audience by using very illustrated pictures to appeal to audience in a short quick time. An example of a stereotype is the Cap Columbie advert because it just shows a quick illustrated of a ship in Columbia handing out caf� to show the fresh and experience or taste. Nescafe magazine article In the image, I saw a white man wearing a jacket with white shirt and jeans on with his right hand in his pocket and his left hand holding a red mug in a record shop leaning at the door next to the blinds with a sold sign. ...read more.


The narrative behind the image is that the man has just bought a record shop and making a fresh start. The connotation of the jukebox and the red mug is that the jukebox makes you think of something old because the jukebox is old and valuable which is like the coffee itself and the red mug just makes you think of the coffee itself. The target audience connoted by the image are mainly for adults because they are the people who mainly drink coffee not children's. My overall opinion about the Nescafe magazine article is that it doesn't try hard enough to appeal to audience because it is to plain and doesn't have any information about the coffee itself. Cap Colombie The Nescafe Cap Colombie advert consists of illustrated picture of people in Colombia handing out caf� on a boat. The picture denotes that the coffee is rich and expensive because it shows a posh woman drinking the coffee. ...read more.


The advert uses visual images to sell its product. The logo is an exotic bird (a toucan). The advertiser chooses this logo because Colombia is famous for their birds. My overall opinion about the 'Nescafe Cap Colombie' advert is that it only appeals to older people and it has enough information for the reader to know how good the coffee really is. CONCLUSION The advertisements are all different because they are all meant to appeal to different audiences. Some advertisements are more successful in reaching their target audience than others for example you take the Nescafe Cap Colombie advert, the advert describes the quality of the coffee and has all the information and illustrations to show this is true which would appeal to more to the audience but in the Nescafe magazine article it doesn't have any information about the coffee just a real life picture of a guy holding a red mug which to me isn't really appealing. So overall I think the most appealing advert is the Nescafe Cap Colombie. ...read more.
