Media Coursework. For this section of my coursework I will be concentrating on the difference between still adverts i.e. adverts in magazines and newspapers and adverts shown on the television. The point of adverts is to promote products, and make perspective buyers know of the product. Adverts are very affective especially one's with a slogan or a theme tune as these are what people remember, T.V adverts in my opinion are better than magazines as they get the point across better and use more affective methods.

The way adverts are set out vary increasingly, the best adverts are those that are informative colourful big bold writing and contain a picture. They should have a target audience.
