Some people say that advertising encourages us to buy things that we really do not need. Others say that advertisements tell us about new products that may improve our lives.
Which viewpoint do you agree with?
It is generally believed that advertising makes people buy unnecessary things. However, others consider it is mandatory to know the new products in the market, which can influence our lives. I would like to agree with the second version which has benefited me in recent times as given below.
A lot of new products come to the market with new features which will ease our life and cater to our daily needs. The advertisement for that new product will create awareness for us to make a call to buy it or not. Most of the times, we search for different options like google, enquiring friends about a product for which we are looking for. But if we see an advertisement for a similar product, our search will become easy.
Due to this current pandemic situation, we all are working from home and it has become difficult to have access to office accessories like printer, scanner, etc.. That time I have seen an advertisement of a portable printer cum scanner for a reasonable price. It was a great help for me to have that product happened due to that advertisement.
At the same time, the advertisements should not override the basic content whether it is a TV or website advertisement which will not serve the purpose and also disturb the content which we are looking for. A well-presented advertisement for new technology or products will always be useful for us. They will create awareness for us to make our lives better.
