Eight teenagers had gone to a restaurant and were given a menu of 50 different items to choose from with an envelope. This was part of a filmed social experiment and they were asked to order one item. After they each ordered the same thing, “triple dipped chicken,” they opened the envelope with these words written on them. The producer had predicted this because of the amount of advertisements there was. Even though these teens say they didn’t notice, it was obvious that the marketing had influenced their decision making.<meta charset=”utf-8″>In what way has advertisements influenced your decision making?
In my opinion I believe that these advertisements really make a huge impact on how much people will buy. Especially if these foods are new because many would want to try it out. This not only makes people get hungry but it also helps them decide where and what they want to eat.
