Media, ads, and the things they do.

Do advertisers trick us into buying things?

By: Ismael Hurtado

Advertisers do trick us into buying things, because they target specific people through how they construct buildings and create ads that people will see. Ads and markets usually tend to target people for who they see, whether it's a teen, kid, adult, anyone. Sight is another but it is used for either the color of the video or object, or how it looks to people/viewers they encounter, and many of the viewers fall for this. Lastly, markets and ads are always finding a way to get you lost and somehow get your attention by making you stop and look at the ad.

People are usually searching wherever they go, whether it's the internet or even if its in a market that's either big or small. When customers enter the store physically or online only "intending to buy an item or two" they tend to watch videos or just search up things on a website. For variety in markets they place items "in different aisles", as for the web, they just show videos or pop-ups on how good their product is or how it can be used. Kids are big customer, so if you ever go to a store, they tend to want to go to the toy aisle because they like what they see because it was built for kids to want things. Whether you're at home or on the go, the media is always there to either show products or inspire you, and this is how they advertise to certain people.

Sight is a big thing for us people because we like to see cool and imaginative things that we have never seen before in our life. That is why color is added to ads, because colors can "often evoke, or represent a feeling", and sometimes it can have a "big emotional impact" on others. Not everything is about color but it's sometimes the retailers, and it's because they usually make a thing called a road-block, meaning they would likely get you lost to just explore and see what you can find as you walk around the store. That is how they use your ability of sight to trick us into buying things.

This may sound similar to other things I wrote but my last thing on the list is how the media is build to somehow road-block you when searching, watching, or going around inside anywhere, anyplace or anytime. This can cause you to "end up with a couple more items in your hand", and mainly it's their job to do so. Most of the time everyone would just go anywhere to buy what they like, and it's because the media builds the "lifestyle" of a place or anywhere, to make the place more suitable. That is how the media uses their ways to construct a market or on the web to, just make you feel more suitable to explore.

That is how I have explained my ideas, if advertisers do trick us into buying things, and I said yes, whether its sight, the perspective of a person, and the way the store is built to advertise to you.


The following questions will not be answered here but ask the owner of the project to answer them because i am just a piece of letters being written out, and also any off topics can be answered.

Quotes/ citations

My interesting quotes (that I) have found.

"Essentially, the more time an item spends in your hand, the more likely you are to purchase it. That means stores are structured so you're always picking things up"

I know this because when grabbing things it says in the article "Research shows that when people touch things they're more likely to buy them", and also its because its a article i did before.

"If you see something in a glass case that has lots of space around it, your gut reaction is to believe that it is valuable and prestigious to own, and for many people it can be attractive like a light to a moth. " I know that items are not real, like jewelry, but it has stated that its not a real thing "you’re literally just buying an idea, not a product." meaning the item you could be buying is not even a real thing.

Last one "some companies hire the Girls Intelligence Agency to spread the word about their products." I know that people are usually paid to do something, but these are younger audiences, and usually people want younger actors, and mostly "40,000 girls from across the US to serve as marketers."

Conclusion!!!

Well its my opinion and so don't judge me for what I say!


I believe that advertisers do trick us into buying things, whether its sight, the people they like to choose, and the way it is constructed, and even more things I haven't mentioned, I mean ads are everywhere on the go or at home, or on TV, anything is possible if they are able to advertise it. Even if others disagree or totally agree/disagree with me, I really don't mind, and you can give your own opinions if you want.
