hen I listened this topic the first thing came to my mind "what kind of resources are we
talking about?". Is it the company's resource or our natural resources?

Definitely advertising is a reliable formula for most of the companies and they rely on this
for competing in present market conditions.Advertising promotes consumption of goods
and is profitable for the company.

But on the other hand, advertising promotes unnecessary consumption. Suppose a new
computer brand is launched then even the people who owns a computer try to buy it just
because we have to compete the world in terms of how updated we are? Hence
advertising leads to a feeling of superiority and inferiority among people and leads to
more consumption and thus leads to more depletion of resources.So, I consider it as a
waste of our natural resources.

I don't think advertising is a waste of resources. hat one shows in the advertisement is
basically the first impression on the customers. Only after one sees the advertisement
(on the television or in the newspaper) , one comes to kno that so n so product has been
launched and is available in the market. In many cases, one goes to buy the product only
if he likes the advertisement, so, advertisement should be made as attractive as possible.

Advertising is a part of promoting your product via different media which is very
necessary but this is a fact that about more than half of the money spent on that goes
wasted. %here is no measure that could find out where and how did your advertisement
really helped your organisation. %hough it is also necessary in terms of communicating
your brand personality and image to customers so that they can connect it to
themselves.So if you have to compete in market you cant avoid it , you have to promote
your product.

I strongly oppose that why because with out advertisement the company will not reach to
the society. In this present corporate world advertisement is very important for the
organization. ven organization produce good products, with out advertisements the
company will not do any awareness about those products. Advertisements help to the
company to increase their sales level.

Advertisements directly targets the consumers. It familiarises the audience with variety
of new products available in the market. Since there is so much competition in the
market advertisements helps us to decide which product to buy.

%hough advertisements might have a false impression on the consumers by simply
overhighlighting the benefit over drawbacks of the product, we cannot say advertisement
is a total waste of resources.

From marketing point of view advertising is not at all a waste of resource. Mainly
advertising is done to spread awareness among people, and if we start considering it as
waste of resource then how can we spread awareness. Yes it is true that many people are
using improper means to advertise its product but still advertising is an important part for
increasing the awareness. Lastly I wanna say it is not a waste of resource.

%hank you friends. "Advertising is a waste of resources" is a very relevant topic.

In some points view it has benefits as well as drawbacks as everything has two phases.

I partially agry with this topic. I think advertising of a product is very essential to know
the use and features. Some product mainly depends upon the advertisement for e. G
networking sites, paper media, electronic etc.

But it has disadvantages in case of advertisement of the hazardous products like tobaco,
drinks etc. hich bound the people specially students and even the childrens to go to the
wrong ways. hich is very emotional. As now most of the people like to use the branded
things for which advertisement is very essential. So we have to act accordingly.

makes the people aware about the different products launched, and their features. Now
on the other hand, we advertise, for tobacco, drinks, and many other hazardous product,

If every company thinks that advertising is not beneficial, the people are not aware of the
new product and its use. If advertising is stopped, most of the networking sites,
electronic and paper media may need to shut down as they mainly depend on the
advertisement. Advertising makes once attention towards the product to analyse whether
it is affordable or not.Besides false advertising leads to misleading the public about the
useful product.

In my view, advertising is not a waste of resources, because through this we are aware of
the new product in market, advertising is the best way to promote the product, but some
companies, deceive the people through the misuse of advertising of the product, we
should protest such type of cases. In a modern era, it is the simpliest waY, through which
we give information about any product (its attributes) to the come people on a single

In my point of view, advertising is beneficial for both producers & consumers. If advertise
is in wright way means it gives full awareness about that product to consumer. It is not
waste of resources. In other hand, if it does not full fill that condition i.e. does not give
awareness about that product to consumer. It is wastes of resources.

No one firm & any Industry can reach home to home to telling about their product. If it
becomes possible then it is very long time process &can be costly.

%herefore advertisement is necessary and beneficials for both industries and consumers.

Just take the eample of mobile phone ads.%he technology is inventing new features for
mobiles day by day and it is also trying to decrease the price of it.So if there are no ads
how people will come to know about the advanced features.In this way if the ads are
giving information for new products and their features it is useful for consumers but if the
ads are not giving proper information of the product then I agree that it a sure wastage

Now take the case of those ads which are not so useful . %hey consist of fun but not the

about all the aspects of product then it will be useful for the consumers

I disagree that advertisement is the waste of resource. It is way to reach public. Unless
and until you don't advertise any thing how would people get to know about your
product. Suppose that you are making a quality product which is better than any other
product available in market. You want that people should use it. You are not going to
manufacture that thing without anyone knowing about that. Advertisements also let you

higher revenues for the advertiser in the form of higher sales but, on looking at it from a
consumer's point of view I find advertising to be waste of resources because it lures me
to go in for a product that I do not require. Ultimately leading to wastage of my money
and my resources for a product that does not meet my requirements.

I think Advertising is not a waste of resources because through advertisements only the
people can know what are the products available in market. But the government should
take proper decisions. %he government should provide star rating on the goods. So the
people can understand easily by the star rating.

I think, advertising is not the wastage of money because people especially youths blindly
believe on what is show in advertisements.%his make the brand or the product popular
and hence increase its sale.Large scale of sale leads to higher profits for the company.

But we should not forget that now a days almost all advertisements doesn't depict the
reality of the product.Companies design these adds in such a mannner that it easily
mismarise anyone.In this case co. are not obeying their social ethics.

%hus, according to me adverisements are good till when it depict truth but otherwise
todays consumers are smart enough to differentiate between the good $ the best.e
know that very business organisation want long term profit but in case of false
advertisements it is just a wastage of money.

I don't agree with the statement fully but yes at some etension it is right.


"actors, prominent sports person etc"?

Just to gain attention of customer so they will become like their favourite star so on.
hat is the intention behind giving such epensive advertise of "S%A#S"?

Is it giving the right awareness to the customer or they are creating bruit among the
innocent customer?

If advertisement is for promotion then it is right but when it cause rumour then I would
termed it as a waste of resources.

Advertising is not a waste of resources unless it is spend in a certain limit. If a company

has that much capital to spend on promoting their product they should obviously use that
because ultimately it is a long term investment, as people get to know about your
product and your products unique features with the help of advertisement. %here is a cut
throat competition among various companies where you can fight over that by
Advertising and reach out to maimum number of people. It is not always necessary that
you should spend enormously if your service and product is good or a little better than
others and also is constantly improving, the customers would turn loyal to you. And then
no need for further epense on advertisement. Once build your rapport with the
consumers and then just inform them about the etensions and improvemnts by
spending less on advertisemnet because once your product is known make your best
efforts to make it the best. hih demands no advertisement.

Advertising is not waste of money, it has a positive role to play in modern society,
helping us choose between competing goods. Many adverts are drawing our attention to
products with new features, for eample more powerful computers, telephones which are
also cameras and music players, or foods with added vitamins. Other adverts try to
compete on price, helping us seek out the cheapest or best value products. In most cases
advertising does not make us go shopping - we would be planning to buy food, clothes,
gifts and entertainment anyway. hat advertising does is to help us make better
decisions about how to spend our money, by giving us more information about the
choices available.

being successful only when it has been promoted differently and should have some

Lets take eample of any soap, the advertise on %' is comes after every 5-10 min. But
there is reason behind it, that if we see the product ad repeatedly it got fi somewhere in

2.%o gather the attention of people to buy the product.(Make the people to buy the

As a reply to the above topic I would say it depends on some factors. Advertisement at
times is a waste of money if you really dont know what you are doing. Smart advertising
definitely is not a waste of money . Ad companies invest a lot in getting a film star to do
a particular Ad at times it proves good and many a times it back fires . Instead I would
say the concept of your Ad if its good and innovative it will never backfire. Hence it purely
depends on the quality (how well it conveys the message) and not on the quantity(%oo
much money spent).
