Extracts from this document...


What do the two chosen adverts say about the Sainsbury's brand? Advertisements play a key role in our lives today. You could go as far to say they flood our field of vision 24/7, from when we get the bus in the morning to when we watch Television in the evening. Advertising and marketing employees have become increasingly under pressure to come up with the "vehicle" to sell the product. The company I am focusing on in this essay is one, which has often used a common tool in advertising, which is to use a person in the public eye to promote their product or brand image.

However his lifestyle, bank balance and culinary skills are envied by many, which can make him a target for abuse, something which could damage the Sainsbury's brand in the long run. In general Jamie Oliver consists of many positive characteristics that Sainsbury's would want to be twined with. He appears to have high family and social values. He is settled with a wife and a daughter, and has a squeaky clean public profile. Almost too good to be true. These adverts represent the new Sainsbury's.
