Persuasive Adverts


In our class we have been looking at adverts as another example of persuasive text. A book that we have been reading in our literacy rotations, ‘This Ad’s for You’ by Andrew Einspruch,ย we learnt that it is estimated that most peopleย see over 3,000 adverts each day, such as on billboards, in magazines or the recognizable words or symbols that companies use to help sell their products. Here are some more adverts that you might see on tv.


What are these adverts trying to persuade you to do? How are they trying to persuade you? Did they use any persuasive techniques?

    Dear 3/4M,
    When we saw the Barbie advert we laughed so much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    When i saw the tranformer advert I saw a person with a tranformer person and he tranformed into a car.

    An advert which only took 2:00m can really persuade a lot of people.

    Dear 3/4M,
    Miss Murphy the video was very quick but when I watched it I wanted to buy it.
    Some times adverts say things like we will deliver it on the day you order it. But my mum bought this dress on ebay and it says we will deliver it right a way but five days after they delivered it to us.

    Dear 3/4m,
    They are trying to persuade you to buy it and
    *you get something when you buy it,
    *they are using bright colors and
    they are using emotive language

    Dear Miss M&MS,
    First they tried turning the kids’ head into fruit .They want to show you how fruity the Gushers were.

    Later they tried to persuade you to buy the Buzz Lightyear toy.By making it talk so it looked real.
