  Advantages of Ads

  Advertisers tend to think big and perhaps this is why they' re always coming in for criticism.Their critics seem to resent them because they have a flair for self-promotion and because they have so much money to throw around. “It' s iniquitous,” they say, “that this entirely unproductive industry (if we can call it that) should absorb millions of pounds each year.

  It only goes to show how much profit the big companies are making.Why don't they stop advertising and reduce the price of their goods? After all, it's the consumer who pays.

  The poor old consumer! He'd have to pay a great deal more if advertising didn't create mass markets for products. It is precisely because of the heavy advertising that consumer goods are so cheap. But we get the wrong idea if we think the only purpose of advertising is to sell goods. Another equally important function is to inform. Advertisements introduce us to new products or remind us of the existence of ones we already know about.

  Lots of people pretend that they never read advertisemerits, but this claim may be seriously doubted. It is hardly possible not to read advertisements these days. And what fun they often are,too! A cheerful, witty advertisement makes such a difference to a drab wall or a newspaper full of the daily ration of calamities.

  We must not forget, either, that advertising makes a positive contribution to our pockets. Newspapers, commercial radio and television companies could not subsist without this source of revenue. The fact that we pay so little for our daily paper, or can enjoy so many broadcast programs is due ehtirely to the money spent by advertisers.

  Another thing we mustn't forget is the“small ads. ”which are in virtually every newspaper and magazine. What a tremendously useful service they perform for the community! Just about anything can be accomplished through these columns.No other item in a newspaper provides such entertaining reading or offers such a deep insight into human nature. It's the best advertisement for advertising there is!
