Consumer Ad analysis custom essay

[pewslideshow slidename=anim2]

(The Ad itself is NOT a reference/resource) Find 3 resources from the following resources list to support your analysis. Use attached ad for analysis.
Purpose of the Assignment
To evaluate a printed advertisement for a piece of exercise equipment in an effort to encourage the student to become a more critical consumer. The advertisement will be evaluated by comparing the claims made in the ad to scientific evidence and research findings.

This section contains your evaluation of both the ad itself and the product advertised; it should be no longer than 2-3 pages. You should comment on the positive aspects (praise) and the negative aspects (criticism) of the ad. Your analysis should be in paragraph form, and critical comments should be well developed. You should make limited use of quotations; references should be paraphrased. If you use quotes, statements must be in proper form (e.g., use quotation marks and cite page for quoted material). You must cite your references, using APA format, to support your statements. In the text of your paper, author & year should be indicated. If there are more than 2 authors, you may use et al. in text (however, remember to include all names on Reference Page.) For direct quotes, also include page numbers. See examples below:
According to Maughan et al. (1995), creatine supplementation has been shown to significantly increase total body mass over a 4 week period.
Caffeine is a diuretic and also stimulates metabolism (Williams, 2005, p.184).
When critically evaluating the product, consider the following questions, if appropriate, but do not limit your critique to only these questions:
Is the use of this product supported by scientific evidence? If so, are there any conflicting results among various studies? Do the participants age, health condition, fitness level, etc. match those for whom the ad is directed? Were there limitations and/or flaws in these studies? Describe the studies, as appropriate, to defend your statements and give evidence for or against the claims made in the ad.
What, if any, contribution would the consumption of the product make to the nutrient intake, physique, or fitness level of the intended consumer?
Could some less expensive product be used to obtain the same results?
What hazards might be associated with the use of this product? Are there any conditions (e.g., medical, age-related) that would contraindicate the use of the product?

When critically evaluating the advertisement, comment on the text, and use of color and graphics. You need to also consider the following questions:
Who appears to be the intended consumer?
What techniques are used to draw the attention of the reader? Are they successful?
Is the ad straightforward and factual? Explain
Is any important information omitted? (You may need to find the product at the market and read the label to determine this.)
What, if any, gimmicks are used to sell the product? If gimmicks are used, are they successful?
