1) It creates awareness for the consumers.

2) It keeps us updated with the new products that company launches.

3) It is helpful for the businesses also for increasing their profits and revenue.

4) It creates an emotional touch with the consumers so that they buy the company's product.

5) Advertising is the best form of promotion.

The real purpose of advertising is to inform the consumers and customers about the new products. I feel that they are necessary because it helps to educate the public and create awareness regarding the new products. Though it is a source of revenue for publishers, advertising is needed. It employs an openly sponsored non-personal message to promote or sell a product, service or an idea. Advertisements are indirectly connected to the public because of these advertisements we can know about some particular things like new gadgets, new products etc. Advertising also helps the government to about the problems of the country and It can indirectly be called as the backbone of the country. Finally, I think that they are not a waste of resources and time.

Hi this is Renuka.

In my view, advertising is not a waste resources because being a product the consumers may know the importance of that product.

To get awareness of that product many companies refer to advertise their products.

By advertising the best offers the rate of production increases and also the products are consumed more. So advertising is not a waste of resources.

What I believe advertisement is not a wasteful resource. See excess of everything is always not up to the mark. But on the contrary, nowadays advertisement is very important not only for gaining goodwill or making the product popular but also advertising help or educate the customers regarding the information of products and also tell the reasons that why they are choosing a product instead of another product of the same line.

So, the advertisement is not a wasteful resource. In fact it is a very creative activity which enhances excitement for both buyers and sellers in the market world.

What I believe is that from the company side view it is always profitable but from the customer side view it depends what types of advertisement it is whether it is informative one or the object to lure the customers, forcing them to buy the things make them think that they need them even not they actually any requirement of such thing.

For example,

Consider a person went to the market for vacuum cleaner he bought it after few days he again went to market he found the same product with a huge discount even he don't need it he bought it again in a taught that in future there may be need of it.

My counter argument for everybody saying that Advertisement is not a waste because of people being informed about products.

Firstly, advertisement only benefits those who are being paid. The business. Never the consumer.

You are only being encouraged to purchase items you think you 'need, want or desire' - marketers study how to fulfil those needs, sometimes even how to create those desires subliminally.

Quite frankly, it is stupid to believe you ever really need something, unless its a physiological / safety need such as food, water, warmth, and rest.

Anything that doesn't fall under that list is quite clearly a need of belongingness, esteem or self-actualisation. The products and brands you buy into simply build your 'identity' you are trying to build.

Capitalism means consumerism and the marketing industry simply manipulates you to consume more and more.

The advertisement is and isn't a waste of resources.

A huge waste of resources is the traditional methods of promotion such as leafleting and other hand-outs that use paper. As a student, my house receives menus and other leaflets daily, and never once have I used one.

If you really understand your consumer, you would understand what channels they engage with and what influences them. i.e. - Social media, using digital methods of advertisement saves a lot of paper, and can also be low cost when using Brand ambassadors to promote products such as clothing.

There isn't really much more I need to explain, save paper by not printing thousands of useless and ignored advertisements. Be smart and research how you can influence your consumer! if they are gen z/x or millenials - social media / online is 100% the best method you can utilise.

Advertisements are not the waste of resources. To survive in a market company has to do marketing so that consumers should not forget their products. Like we can see in rural areas people will ask for Colgate instead of toothpaste, lifebuoy instead of bathing soap, Maggie instead of noodles so just because they have very strong marketing strategies that's why they are performing so well in the market. So the company has to do advertisements of their so that people will have a variety of products from same domain from which they can easily choose one product as per their requirements by analysing their product quality, quantity and very important their price value.

Hi dears.

Advertisement is waste of resources. It is totally a business policy. COMPANIES use more money on advertisement and they recover it by adding it over the price of product. If companies don't show the add that they can sell their product in cheaper price. People aware about the product and they can, but they can know with other sources also. Due to negative things advertised by celebrities, like Blenders pride, mc dwells no 1, royal stag. All are alcohol and the followers of those celebrities may attract to those things.

Hi Guys,

Guys I'm not going to open any new thing about this interesting topic but yes trying to give something useful light for us.

Advertising is all over gaining knowledge about the things because we get aware of the things with the help of advertisements. Advertisement gives us a specific face of the thing so that we can recognize easily for buying or applying things in our life as we sometimes get confused that which one we use or apply and then we call the add and buy or use the same one because a proper add gives proper knowledge along with great feelings in within.

We all the people always want to buy something but in absence of proper knowledge we get nervous that how to perform in this situation and sometimes we try to pack up from that unaware situation, you are new because you are away from add or there is no add for that one and in result you have kneeled yourselves.

So being a hero be a part of gaining knowledge from the adds so that you may handle the situation well.

So, I can't say that advertising is a waste of resources where it one of the best way for growth.

Thanks.

Good morning everyone!

In my sight, "Advertising is not a waste of resource".

What advertising means, is something and everything of promoting a product to the potential and mass audiences in a layman perspective. But it is a huge concept, not just a product can be marketed, resources too.

Consider Banas factory, a leading manufacturer and supplier of milk made products to "Amul", they market their resources i.e. "supply chain management", to the large audiences.

Now, the question arises - if one proposed advertising is a waste, then how it is plausible to communicate your product to your customers?

Advertising is completely a boon, it is a platform where one can segment mass, selective, and niche customers in just a span of time.

Advertising is the resource, by which one can convert a customer to the consumer.

Advertising has many faces, if one talk about a peculiar promotion, that too plunged in the advertising community.

It is one prerogative, to which medium they choose. It is due to advertising, one can expand, diversify their declining product, sales, innovation and invention.

Thank you.

At the same time advertisement helps to face today's market cut throat competition. Some ads are very useful like pulse polio, Swach Bharat Abhiyan. On the other hand, some ads mislead the customers about price and quality of products. So adv has both pros and cons.

I don't agree with that advertising is a waste of resources rather producing something without advertising will be a waste of huge amount of resources used for production, because consumers will not come and just knock the door to buy the product unless they know about the product very well. So there is a need to make the people know about the product and that is done by advertising.

Another reason is that, whenever someone goes to a shop to buy something they recall the list of brands in their mind i.e. brand value, which plays a major role in the sales of a particular product.

Now the question is why do they advertise repeatedly? This may be due to the fact that every day there is a new brand in the market selling the same kind of products, so people will easily forget about the product. So in order to keep the product alive in the mind of the consumers, it is extremely important to keep on advertising. So we realize that advertising is not a waste of resources.

I think it's a waste for the most part but only because society has developed more. - especially the internet. 30 years ago sure, how could you as a consumer easily access the information you need about a product, not very easily. For example, if I am looking at buying a new car from a dealership. Now, I can use the internet to see every car I can think of at the click of a button, and I can easily narrow down my options from there and using resources available online.

But if Volkswagen for example, is putting money into advertising their brand new car on the TV, or web pages, or billboards and so on then every car manufacturer has to do the same otherwise the exposure difference is too much and you get pushed out of the limelight and wave goodbye to your business. As a result, the price of EVERY car goes up in order to fund the advertising but the product you get is no better than it would be without. Even If just one does it, the others have to follow suit and we all lose out because of it regardless of who we buy from. From a private business perspective, it makes sense - if nobody else would do it as well. But remember this isn't just people from the same industry, if neither Honda or Nissan advertised cars, they would both suffer, some of that money would end up getting spent on holidays or something else. It also makes it much harder for new companies to develop as it's another huge up front cost they have to pay to get their name out there to the same level as the big boys, which helps keep the rich people rich.

Look at google too, people advertise via pay-per-click but if nobody did it then the organic results would simply be at the top instead. Google is complex now but it was incredibly useful even in its earlier, much simpler days. I could type "Acrylic Sheets" into google and its system of popularity would decide the rest - instead of who waves the most money at Google, which then increases the cost of the product.

And my last example, the latest Porsche 911 GT2 RS is still using the ancient rear engine layout of the 911 50 years ago, which is simply worse than a mid-engine for supercar purposes. They made the Cayman several years ago now, but limit its development significantly in order to keep the 911 as the top dog. Because it's iconic to their brand. In reality, this car should be a Porsche Cayman GT2 RS with a mid engine, it would be superior to its purpose, but they won't sell as many simply because it isn't called a 911.

From a purely logical point of view, it is really dumb for the most part. But it is kind of part and parcel of capitalism, and I can't see that going anywhere soon. In order for it to be reduced in a capitalistic society, there need to be new platforms made in order for new companies to gain exposure, for example, "cars. Com/cars. Gov" listing every registered car manufacturer and what kind of cars they make, which is the highest rated. A Neutral advertising platform if you like, designed to give consumers the idea of which they should choose to buy between X and Y, not just the owners of X screaming "Buy X because it's better" and Y doing the same. Everyone apart from the advertising industry wins.

According to me, Advertising is not a waste of resources. If a new product enters the market, we can easily aware of it through an advertisement. Every time we cannot go the market or store and we cannot know about each and every product or brand.

Through an advertisement, we will come to know the features of a particular product sitting at home. In today's world advertisement becomes an essential part of the business.

The outcome with an advertisement is spending huge money on advertisements is insane from a consumer point of view because the firms will charge the ad expenditure from the consumer itself. Also spending a lot of amount on brand ambassadors to promote the product makes the consumer to pay a higher price.

In this way, advertising has both pros and cons.

Hi everyone.

Advertising is definitely not wastage of resources. A companies sales increases and it holds a considerable market share because of its goodwill. But creating that goodwill might take the time or might never happen if advertising doesn't play its role. Advertising has its own advantages. It creates awareness among consumers about products, take Patanjali for example, it not only promotes its products but makes consumers aware of various other harmful products. Also, through advertising consumers come to know about the product and they can know more about the products. It increases quality consciousness amongst consumers. Adds to the profits of the company. There are many more advantages attached to it ad it definitely can't be said that advertisements are a wastage of money. Rater it is the most optimum utilisation of resources. Thank You.

According to me, advertising has the major impact on consumers. It is the advertisement, who make people aware of the products from different price range. Whenever any new product is launched through advertisement, people buy it at least once. Even if any discounts and offers are announced in the advertisement, consumers are ready for brand switching. Though some advertisements are a just gimmick, but people get attracted to that too. Even, social media is the major hub for advertisement and it is seen that businesses are really making profits by attracting people through such media.

Advertising is a good option which gives customer a perception about the product. Through advertising of product or services, the main focus of the company which is to reach to the customer is obtained.

So, in my view advertising is not a waste of resources.

Thank you.

I don't think advertisement is a waste of resources, in my opinion, advertisement is very helpful for knowing about the product and aware of the product. And is helpful to people they can know how to use, why to use, and where to use this product. Some times advertisement is negative impact. Many people buy the product blindly to advertisement no rules and morals.

I don't think advertising is a waste of resources. Advertising helps public know about the product, about products benefits, use, how to use, why to use, where to use. It helps in comparing different brands. Until public will know about the product how they are going to purchase it, so advertisement is needed. But for advertisement resources is needed like paper for pamphlet or giving ad in newspaper, magazines or displaying ads on hoardings but I don't think it is wastage of paper, as here paper is used for advertising nd awareness of public, so it is for welfare of public So here resources are not getting waste, they are helping public. So we can conclude Advertising is not a waste of resources.

I don't think advertising is waste of Resources. As advertising is done to make people aware of the product that has recently been launched or the benefits of the product. But sometimes we see that in a particular advertisement lot of resources is being wasted. At one side, you are giving idea of not to waste resources and at other you are wasting too many resources to just presenting a new product. It is similar to a coin as it has to sides one benefits and another wasting of resources.

Advertising gets the consumers close to the products.

People are aware of the pros and cons of a product. They can make their own decisions of what's good for them.

Creates job opportunities for many people.

Advertising is a mean of promoting goods. Since more people become aware, there is more revenue.

Advertising on TV is a big relief from the daily tele shops that have nothing but drama.

Advertising is one of the pillars of marketing. Its job is to make people aware of the existing and new products that launched in the market every now and then. But the question is, does advertising really fulfilling its responsibility?

Just in order 2, mint money by luring them to by the products isn't the right way. Many advertisements that we see today are misleading. The false claims made by such advertisements breaks the customer's faith in the company and the business ends up loosing its customer instead of making. Unfortunately, there are many companies who fail to understand that their long-term interest lies in serving the customers right and not by coaxing them to buy things, where they only end up wasting their precious money.

I strongly believe, Advertising is not a waste of resources because advertising is a very easy and convenient way of communication. Even if a person is illiterate while seeing an advertisement he/she can easily come to know about the product. Its cost per unit is very cheaper as through one advertising on T. V almost every region can be covered. The best way one can tell about his product. And even helps to increase sales. Consumers feel reputation while purchasing advertised products.

Advertisement can help through following ways:

1. Consumer loyalty.
2. Coverage.
3. Retention.
4. Mass communication etc.

As per my view, advertising is not a waste of money because ad is the only one way to know about it, without ad there are a few chances to know about it suppose without ad how people know about iPhone 6, 7 or apple brand because there is the same point behind it so without AD, it couldn't go to customer's hands that why ad plays important role to know about reality.

In my humble opinion I will advise commercial companies to spend more money on improving product quality, making their prices affordable, improve on customer service while carrying out many P. Are activities. This strategy will increase sales incredibly instead of spending resources on advertising which in most case's end up being misleading when consumers try the product and find no quality. Spend money to improve on this above strategies and I can a sure you that, your customers will be advertisers and brand ambassadors for your company. Just try and see. Conclusively advertising is a wast of time and resources.

Hi, friends, advertising medium is a way by which any person can decide what is the best product or service and they can later switch to that one for which they have decided.

Advertisements help the one who has interest but do not come forward to buy a product or receive any services. It is the best way to make the world modern, advance, fast technology.

I say it has a lot of advantages, of course, disadvantages are also there but it depends on individual thinking.

And the best example is our "IndiaBix" which allows every individual to open up their mindes and allows to publicly exhibit their own ideas thoughts is the best way I say.

Hello, friends. In my point of view, advertisement is very useful to know the best review of the product. With the help of advertisement people will able to know the value of the product, its usage, quality etc. If the product is up to the mark of customers satisfaction then there will be a good demand in the market. Also, the advertisement should have some useful meaning before they are launching in the market. It should satisfy the customer needs.

In my view, advertising is not a waste of money. Because in most of the cases, the product reaches the people through advertisement. We should consider the money that we are using in the advertisement as an investment. For example, if Apple Company wants to release a new version of iPhone, how the people knows the news? Through advertisement only. On the other hand, the advertisement should be in a conscious way. The companies should not try to blame the customers with their false advertisements.

In my opinion, advertisement is not a waste of money.

Think about that if some give you the same product of 5 different brands and you never heard the name of 4 brands but you have seen one brand advertisement much time but never used it. So more probability you will choose that product.

And also without advertisement less people will know about your product it's also a negative point.

So in many ways advertisement is useful.

Yes, I do partially agree with the statement that advertisement is a waste of resources as an advertisement instead of being the mode of spreading information has just become a commercial propaganda. Whenever you come out of an educational institute people starts to distribute lots of pamphlets, you feel like a rain of pamphlet even if you don't want to take it. So this is somehow wastage to paper media which is also an environmental concern. This is just one example, there are much more. So we are in need to be judicial about the mode of advertisement.

In my point of view, the advertisement is very useful to every product, but we have to think once whenever we are going to put on money in that advertisement. In our country more advertisement done by celebrities only. In that case, they are going to ask more money on that. So we have to give the advertisement without celebrities and at the same time we put that money to make more products, because of this time will be reduced business of particular produce will be rise up.

I totally disagree with the statement. Advertising is not a waste of resource, it is the most important ingredient in the process of promotion of a product in a market to attract the attention of the customers. Nowadays, the advertisement is done on a digital platform which is very cost effective as compared to an offline advertisement. Digital Marketing has made the branding very easy, flexible and instant response from customers. 50% of the businesses are now dependent on it for their brand promotion, the reason behind it is that audience is more active on the internet. Without advertising, the brands will not be known to the customers and it's the technique to spread awareness to the targeted audiences.

For a company, advertising is not a waste of money since it has a larger opportunity to gain the particular type of attention of the customer and also is the best way to reach the more customer. Initially, it has spent larger money for advertising but it gives benefit for a long time and this spent money is supposed as an investment for a company.

At the India level, India is a fastest growing economy and being a 3rd largest economy of the world in GDP terms and it is a country having 2nd largest population in the world. So for any company India is being a better market to gain profits by reaching more and more customer through advertising.

But in another hand, I am not supporting to fake advertising, taking a small instance- I could not understand that Fair Lovely, a fairness cream how can help a people to achieve success in the life or availed a greater job opportunities, the are many people who got huge success in the life without Fair lovely cream and this is fact that this is not a right manner of advertising.

So I think advertising has always beneficial for the company as well as to the customer if done in truly and right manners.

According to me, advertisements are not a waste of time, it is just a tool through which you can make the customers aware about your product and after seeing the ad again n again the brand gets fit into your mind. Let me explain this to you with an eg like even these days many people in rural ask for Colgate rather than asking for toothpaste, this is the power of advertisements. N in terms of fair n lovely as a consumer we can file a case against it because they are portraying a wrong image but still consumers consumer it assuming that dey will turn fairer.

So there are both prons yet corns of advertising its upto the consumer, to trust the brand or they shouldn't.

Hi friends, I am Deepika Singhal and I would like to put up my point in the above discussion that advertisements are not always bad for the society and are not just a wastage of money which many of you think it is.

As we all know people are being fascinated by these advertisements and they get attracted towards all the schemes and discounts which a company or a manufacturer provides to attract the customers which are not at all a bad thing to sell or tell about the companies products.

As we all know demand and supply go hand in hand with the customers and nowadays since there is a lot of competition in the market so the customer is the king for the products and products are even designed considering them only. So if companies are advertising for the benefit of customers and keeping in mind about their profit than what's bad in that?
