Abstract

Advertising, a derivative of Promotion, one of the four P’s[1] of marketing, is designed to persuade the target audience of a product to make purchase decisions favorable to the advertiser. However, advertising is more than just a rhetorical tool, particularly as it crosses cultural boarders. Available literature focuses on advertising that studied consumer behavior within the context of the vagaries of market forces. This school locates the basics of consumer demographics and psychographics within the synchronicity of economic indices. This paper, however, looks at an area often ignored in mainstream research: the opportunity to study advertising within the more qualitative measures of cross-culture contexts.
