The spread of information through advertisement is widely used nowadays. Without emphasizing on the effect, actually consumers are largely influences and attracted to interesting advertisements. However, advertisements can lead both to good and bad. Many gigantic company such as Petronas willing to pay a lot of money just to get only the exclusive and meaningful advertisement. To what extent the advertisement is, it is deniable that advertisements bring a lot of help but at the same time, can give badness. Many news provide evidences that advertisement lead to bad effect. So, it is solemnly disagreed that advertisements are a good guide for consumers in the aspects of economy, raising awareness and spreading information.

Advertisements are use by the advertisers to promote their products easily to the people but there are many cases where people were disappointed after they found out that the products they get were not exactly as good as it shows in the advertisements. This proves that advertisements are not a good guide for consumers because it influences the consumers to buy unnecessary things, manipulates people's minds and it does not ensure the physical state of the product.

Advertisements are a good guide for consumers. Do you agree?

There are many advertisements, particularly in magazines and newspapers, which are designed to persuade people to invest in buying products. It is said that advertisements can tend to influence badness in some circumstances. But logically, advertisement can be a really good medium as guidance for consumers. Advertising is a marketing tool and may be used in combination with other marketing tools, such as sales promotions, personal selling tactics, or publicity. Therefore, advertisement is a good guide for consumers in aspects of budget, awareness and guidelines.

Teacher said...

Yes... Good that you did not wait till the last minutes to submit your introduction. If you have submitted your introduction, you are also required to leave comments on your friends' submission. An example would be;
Amina, I think your thesis statement is parallel and I cannot wait what your supporting ideas will be for awareness and guidelines. I can guess that you will be talking how consumers can save money when they use the advertisements as guidelines before going out to buy things that they want. However, I do not see how guidelines can be different from budget.

Nowadays, advertisements are a great medium to promote products to consumers.Advertisements are usually found through media such as television, internet, radio, and newspapers.Through advetisements, consumers get to know more information about the products.However, this information can give drawbacks towards consumers if it is promoted in the wrong way.It is totally disagreed that advertisements are a good guide for consumers in terms of quality, economy and health.

Teacher said...

Another way of learning is by accepting others' opinions and ideas. For example, Arsalnaa, the thesis statement can be improved as you have to make it parallel. What do the others think?

Thank you madam for commenting my 'Intoduction'. I was thinking to eloborate on guidelines as how to buy the products and where to get it, also whom they can refer about the products. As for budget, the consumers can determine on how much they must provide money to get the products and able to know if they are affordable or not before making any decision. This are my immediate ideas as for now, and I will think of better ideas later on.

Nowadays,there are so many advertisement in television,radio,newspapers and any other types of media.All advertising company really put a very hard work and compete with each other to produce the best advertisement to attract the consumers.Advertisement plays an important role for being a medium to promote a new product that is available in the market.When it is exposed to the consumers,the rate of selling of that particular product will be increase.But,is advertisement really a good guide for consumers?I disagree that advertisement can be a good guidance as it manipulating people’s mind,give false information about the product and also do not ensure the physical state of the product.

Advertisement is an important content of the media nowadays. Most type of media now contains advertisement where they spread all kinds of information especially on matters relating to consumerism. A debate whether advertisements are good guide for consumers are being going on since its’ beginning and continues until this day.

The advertisements spread the awareness on consumer rights, products information and consumers feedback.

Advertisements are everywhere in our daily life. They are defined as public notice offering goods or services, and they can be in a form of tv advert or a job ad in local newspapers. However, eventhough they are said to be a good guide for consumers nowadays, they still have their disadvantages, such as manipulating people's mind, wasting their money and also, cheating the consumers.
