Ads are space in the newspaper devoted to selling something. The ads scattered throughout the paper are called display ads. They usually have pictures or graphics with them, and can be anything up to a full page in size. Allow students time to browse through the paper and look at the ads.

Keep them focused on the ads by asking: • What makes you stop and look at the ads? • Are the pictures in colour, or black and white? • Which pictures do you like the best? Why? • What kinds of things are being sold? Do you think you would buy them? • Are there ads for things that kids would buy or use? Why or why not? • How big are the pictures? Do they take up the whole page, or only part? Are they bigger or smaller than the stories on those pages? • How many ads are in each…...

...Essay on Theoretical Understanding and Practical Application of Advertising and Promotion in Business By Sofia Lyondova "Advertising is the nonpersonal communication of information usually paid for and usually persuasive in nature about products, services or ideas by identified sponsors through the various media."(Bovee, 1992, p. 7) INTRODUCTION Information Technology (IT) has become a vital and integral part of every business plan and is changing every aspect of how people live their lives. IT is a driving factor in the process of globalization. Technology is now the forefront of the modern world creating new jobs, innovations, and networking sites to allow individuals to connect globally. It’s much easier to communicate with others than it was just decade ago. This has improved our lives in many ways by allowing us to become more interconnected and knowledgeable about the world. In nearly every corner of the world, we cannot walk down the street without seeing someone talking, texting, or surfing the Internet on their cell phones, laptops or tablet Pc’s. Ten years ago, the only way for people to communicate with each other was meeting face to face or writing letters. However, people living or working in different countries might be unable to meet each other. It cost more money for travelling and sending letters if people lived too far from others. Now days, we are happy with the advance of new technologies such as email, cellular phones, television, etc.......

...A newspaper (often just called a paper when the context is clear) is a periodical publication containing news, other informative articles (listed below), and usually advertising. A newspaper is usually printed on relatively inexpensive, low-grade paper such as newsprint. The news organizations that publish newspapers are themselves often metonymically called newspapers. Most newspapers now publish online as well as in print. The online versions are called online newspapers or news sites. Newspapers are typically published daily or weekly. News magazines are also weekly, but they have a magazine format. General-interest newspapers typically publish news articles and feature articles on national and international news as well as local news. The news includes political events and personalities, business and finance, crime, severe weather, and natural disasters; health and medicine, science, and technology; sports; and entertainment, society, food and cooking, clothing and home fashion, and the arts. Typically the paper is divided into sections for each of those major groupings (labeled A, B, C, and so on, with pagination prefixes yielding page numbers A1-A20, B1-B20, C1-C20, and so on). Most traditional papers also feature an editorial page containing editorials written by an editor, op-eds written by guest writers, and columns that express the personal opinions of columnists, usually offering analysis and synthesis that attempts to translate the raw data of the news into......

...Advertising Executive Summary Islam is one of the most widely practiced religions in the world and can be found in many different regions throughout the globe. With such a large, widespread following these populations cannot be avoided by marketers. Firms selling product globally, especially in Muslim-majority countries, need to be aware of the norms and regulations in these nations and adapt their advertisements accordingly. This can pose a real challenge, even for large multinationals, as we will see throughout the remainder of the report. Additionally, regulations found in one Islamic nation can vary greatly in comparison to the advertising styles in another. Each country is different and although many nations are Muslim-majority, such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia, they all have varying practices and rules and cannot be treated as one in regards to advertising. A firm must tailor their marketing style to each individual nation while respecting and acknowledging their religious practices. As far as recommendations for marketers, they will need to be tailored to each country individually, but in general it is important to embrace the Islamic religion and integrate the brand into Muslims’ everyday life while taking care to respect their beliefs and practices. Islamic nations are said to be “the next frontier” of advertising, so it is essential that large firms and their agencies take note of these norms and regulations and use research and knowledge to......

...Advertising is the act or practice of calling public attention to one’s product, service and need, especially by paid announcements which as of products for sale, in newspaper and internet or on television as well as radio. (, n.d.) Advertising can be disseminated through many methods. An obvious reason for advertising is simply informing people of the existence of products. Consumers might be interested in buying. No one will buy something that they do not know exists. When more people know about a product, more of it will be sold (Berkers, 2014). Today, a company or business when they are doing advertisements will research the target for their product or goods. Next, the company will decide how to manage their advertising. One of the best ways does this in twenty-first century to try to establish viral marketing. Viral marketing, which is also called viral advertising, is an easier way to tell consumers about a company’s product. This means a marketing strategy that focuses on spreading information and opinions about a product or service from person to person, specifically by using unconventional means such as the Internet or e-mail. (, n.d.) For example, advertising information posted on Facebook, if anyone accepts this information then puts like or share it, his or her friends may receive the message and do the same thing. Next if this trend is continuing, the information may reach the result of going viral. This project aims to research how......

Newspaper Profits

...Newspaper Profits American Military University ECON600 The combined newspaper company would be able to make a profit because the cost of competition is being removed. They would be able to streamline operations and eliminated redundant positions and systems. The reduction in basic staff functions would be substantial because labor is the most expensive part of any business. The lowered competitive market will add profit and the ability for the company to leverage with the consumer to get the highest value possible for their papers. Before the merger they companies were offering advertising space in their papers for a specific price. Assuming that the viewership was the same and the targeted market was the same than the consumer would just place and add with the newspaper company that offered the best value. The two companies were fighting for the advertising dollars and therefore were forced to lower the advertising cost. They were doing this to get people committed to their respective paper in hopes that they would just keep renewing there advertisement without shopping the market. Some people can be lazy and just continue to pay what they were used to paying until something forces them to look at the alternative. I think that they got these people in at a low cost to the consumer but would slowly increase the cost overtime. However, the combined company now is in a position to ensure that those that are buying advertising are paying the full......

...Clare Ellis ENGL 1164 2014 Sept 2, The first article that caught my eye in The New York Times had an old black and white photo of a young boy in military uniform which caught my attention. The headline read: “Medal of Honor for a Hero 150 Years in the Grave.” My first reaction was wondering why an old photo from the past was on the front page of the newspaper. The article talked about a young man who was an artillery commander in the Civil War. The boy’s name was First Lt. Alonzo H. Cushing and according to the article he had stood against Pickett’s Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. The article said that because of Cushing’s act of bravery and the help of a ninety-four year old woman from Wisconsin, he will be awarded with the Medal of Honor by President Obama. The reason the award took so long was on account of changes within Washington and because some thought that in awarding this young man it would bring more requests as well as more tension than necessary towards the Civil War. Margaret Zerwekh is the woman’s name and according to the article the reason she lobbied for this young man was because “He saved the Union” she said. I found the article interesting because I like to read about history and to understand past events and issues to better understand today’s problems in our country and around the world. However, I was surprised that an act of heroism from over a hundred years is now finally being recognized. What was confusing to me was why Washington decided......

However, since the price war, such an agreement no longer exists and those newspaper companies are free to adjust their price.
