Lies! The Wonderful World of Advertising Six Propaganda Techniques In your notes, clearly define each technique. Consider the following: How many do you (or WILL you) recognize in advertisements? Which one tends to persuade YOU most? Why? Bandwagon

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

asset and should be flaunted. Animal Farm Web Quest/Project Your team will present/explain: 1. one essential unit vocab word its definition an image/picture representing word
