b. Note making:

The ultimate aim of all advertising is to sell the commodity but in order to achieve this there are a few obstacles which the adman has to overcome. 1st of all, prospective buyers are likely to be studying the newsprint or magazine not because of its advertising material but because
of its editorial material; moreover, roundabout half of the publication is likely to consist of advertisements, all of them competing for the reader's attention. The 1st task of the adman then is to make sure that his advertisement is noticed. Once the reader's attention has been caught, the advertisement should also hold his attention and it should convince him that the subject of this particular advertisement is of interest to him. Furthermore, the advertisement has to convince the learner that the commodity will satisfy a few need or create a need which he has not felt

before. Finally, it is not enough that the prospective customer should come

to feel a need for the product in general; the advertisement must convince him that the particular brand advertised has a few qualities which will make
it superior to other similar brands. In addition, the ideal advertisement should be constructed in such a way that as much as possible of its message will get across even to the learner who merely notices it but decides not to learn it.
