Ad Analysis Essay
For this assignment, you will use your knowledge of rhetorical techniques combined with the assigned advertising articles (on Canvas) to analyze 2-3 print ads for similar products and develop a thesis that is central to all adverts. In your analysis, you should consider some or all of the following as it applies to your ads:
What is the first thing you notice about the ad? Is this effective in getting the viewer to examine the product more closely?
Who is the intended audience? How can you tell? What strategies are enlisted to entice this group?
Discuss the visual layout. Does the ad use positive or negative space and what is its effect? What are the main color schemes utilized and what do you suppose they are doing for the product?
Is there any statistical or factual data to support the product? If not, why do you suppose this is? If there is factual data, does it appear accurate or is it misrepresented?
Does the ad seem to be selling a look, a lifestyle, a relationship or any other promise not directly tied to the product itself?
Does the ad use ethos, pathos, or logos to communicate its message?
Does the ad utilize “weasel words” to overstate the effectiveness or appeal of the product?
Does each of your ads use similar techniques to sell their products? What are their similarities and differences and what does this tell you about the product itself?
It is not necessary to address all of these questions, only those that apply to your thesis and subject. Additionally, you are not required to use all of the information acquired from the all of the assigned articles – only what applies to your purpose – but it would be prudent to use some of that knowledge to offer a full analysis.
You may wish to do additional research on the brands or products themselves to acquire statistical data for the intended audience, factual supporting data, or any other information pertaining to the marketing of your products. You may also wish to research demographical data for your magazine(s) to see how this ties into the product’s targeted audience (a rhetorical consideration and part of the message’s larger context). Additional research, however, is not required for this assignment; it is solely up to your individual discretion. Please use the appropriate MLA citations both in-text and as part of your Works Cited page if you choose to go this route.
