  1. Tiffany,

    You have another set of great ads! The gold fish ad is really smart. If a parent is reading the magazine and sees the ad, I agree with you, they will want to buy it because it will be healthy for their children. I the child sees the ad over their parent’s shoulder, they will most likely show interest in the snack too because in a fun way, the snack is being portrayed. It almost looks like an art activity that they would make in school!

    I would buy this for myself because I am interested in healthy snacks.


    • Hello again!
      It’s funny you mentioned buying the snack from seeing the ad. That’s exactly how I felt about a few of the ads I uploaded. I’m already a fan of Pepperidge Farm so I’m sure I’ll get around to purchasing both of the products advertised. Just yesterday I went to Target and purchased the Colgate toothpaste! The next time I make a run to the store, I want to try the Biore products as well. I am always looking for something for my skin that will cleanse my pores well and not dry my face out and though I haven’t tried them, the advertising has me sold! I guess they did their job, huh? 🙂


  2. Hi TK, great selection of ads. The goldfish ad made me hungry, and then the Zyrtec ad made me laugh. As an allergy victim (I know its a bit dramatic but its how I feel.) I can’t tell you how many times I have thrown off myself during a group activity or an important activity, or thrown off the entire group. Talk about embarrassing. Thankfully I have very graceful friends so we always find a way to laugh. What I found really interesting about your analysis is that you mentioned the strength of the medication if taken over and over again…Honestly, I don’t really read the fine print so I would have missed that portion of the ad as a regular viewer reading a magazine. I wonder if others had this same experience and if maybe it was a successful ad, but not as successful as it could have been due to the small font and placement.

    • I agree, I suffer from allergies as well and really understood their slogan, “muddle no more.” Because essentially, that’s exactly how seasonal allergies makes an individual feel. Additionally, as I’ve matured I make sure to read fine print (honestly, I hate fine print because I feel that it is deceptive) and I’ve noticed that if one is not careful to read this information, it can have adverse effects towards how appropriate the medication works or in other cases may have additional facts that a person should know. I appreciate you for stopping by 🙂

  3. Hello Tiffany!

    Great selection of ads! I particularly are drawn to the Goldfish and the Biore ads. They both use something to dictate their message. The Goldfish in the shapes of vegetables and the Biore ad using Quartz and Charcoal to send an additional message.

    Good job!

  4. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always exciting to read through content from other
    writers and use something from their websites.

  5. Can I just say what a relief to discover an individual who genuinely understands
    what they’re discussing on the internet. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people really need to read this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

  6. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions?
