Persuading a consumer by telling them others are doing it. Testimonial A product is sold by using words

from famous people or an authority figure. I use this product; therefore, you should too Transfer

A product is sold by the name or picture of a famous person or thing. Repetition When the products name or slogan is repeated at least four times in an ad.

* Radio advertisements excel with this technique! Emotional Words When words that will make a consumer feel strongly about someone or

something are used. False Idols The same body & face is portrayed in most ads. Men are more interested in women portrayed in ads. Consumers falsely believe their body is their best
