    Each day we see adverts on the television showing us new lifestyles that look glamorous, we hear adverts on the radio, we see slogans emblazoned on people’s clothes, on the side of buses, on billboards, everywhere!! Big companies know that they need to make their product appeal to as many ‘niche markets’ as possible and they do this by ‘audience segmentation’.

    A Comparison of Two Advertisements The female advert could be aimed at middle aged women. This is because it is not showing a really young person in the mirror such as a teenager, and it looks like someone in their mid-twenties or early thirties. This might make it less appealing to younger people, because it does not have the “fun factor” such as funky designs.

I believe that the advertisement needs to contain all relevant information on the job vacancy but must also give a brief history of the company and maybe also an indication of how the company wants to grow or expand in the future.
