I will be analyzing two advertisements, stating how effective they are likely to be in achieving their purpose and in selling a renter’s paradise. In my analysis I will include a list of persuasive techniques used in these advertisements. Undoubtedly, the purpose of an advertisement is a strong appeal to the readers.

They do a very good job linking their product to good times and the first feelings associated with this first time of living away from home that brings out the independence in all young adults. When you look at the ad even closer you see the colors at the bottom, drawing your eye in at the logo of The
Grove. In the background, bringing about the warm feelings is bland pastel colors of keeping your eye focused on the fun pictures. The greatest eye-catcher within this as is the “unlimited fun limited vacancies” ("Lubbock Apartments" 85) text across the top is used in a large, bold red...
