remember
Remember
  • Advertising sets us up to feel dissatisfied -  even if we think we have everything we need, ads will still try to convince us that there is something else we need.
  • Advertisers try to show us how much more satisfied, popular, happy, hip, attractive, sexy, fun and in control we would be if we had their product.
  • Fashion and trends are always changing so that we must continually spend money to be current.
  • Advertising stresses competition and status versus feeling good about being who you are and accepting others for who they are.
