Advertisements can be seen everywhere in this modern world. It is estimated that Americans view an average of 1,500 ads every day! With the rapid economic growth in China, you can expect a number doubling that in the near future.
If you think you know all the ad tricks in the book and will never be talked into
buying something you don’t really want, wait till you finish reading this article.
While “hard-sell” ads are easy to detect---such as those with cheerful Olympic champions or film stars holding products and feeding you reasons why they are bargins---we are less clever when faced with “soft-sell” methods. The most common technique of this kind is to make customers think there is an immediate need to buy the product. So next time you see words like hurry, act now, last chance, now or never etc./ think twice. Most of the chances aren’t as short-lived as they seem to be.
Is that the only type of soft-sell advertising? Of course not. Soft-sell advertising includes give-away samples and concert sponsorships.
Different types of advertising work in different places and for different products. “There’s never a one-size-fits-all technique. It has to be tailor-made for each situation,” says Gillian Greene, Creative Director of CheesyBee, an advertising company in London.
than speaking directly to customers, some ads are also made for investors and shop owners. Why? Because when the investors see the expensive, well-made ads, they believe that the company is running a go od business. Then they’re happy to invest more money in it, even though the ad itself does not appeal to anyone in the street. In the same way, shop owners prefer to stock well—advertised goods because they know that customers are more likely to buy them.
Therfore, advertising can help sell goods even when it’s not directed at the customers. Ads work in every stage of a business, and that perhaps is the best ad for the industry itself.
24. What is this article mainly about?
A.It is easy to be influenced by ads.
B.It is not hard to run a good advertising business.
C.Advertising helps make money.
D.Advertising helps industries grow.
25. The “soft-sell” technique mentioned in paragraph 3 refers to__________.
B.Products that are real bargains.
C.Misleading words that appear in ads.
D.Images of Olympic champions.
26. Which of the following is true according to the article?
A.“Soft-selling” methods are easy to detect.
B.All ads are not speaking directly to customers.
C.Tailors are needed in making ads.
D.Customers should always think of buying goods in a hurry.
27. What can we conclude from the article?
A.If we are careful, we can avoid ads.
B.Expensive ads are more attractive.
C.Customers will buy well-advertised goods.
D.Ads are powerful in our daily life.
N---A British judge on Thursday sentenced a businessman who sold fake bomb detectors(探测器)to 10 years in prison, saying the man hadn’t cared about potentially deadly consequences.
It is believed that James McCormick got about $ 77.8 million from the sales of his detectors--which were based on a kind of golf ball finder---to countries including Iraq, Belgium and Saudi Arabia. McCormick, 57, was convicted of cheats last month and sentenced Thursday at the Old Bailey court in London.
“Your cheating conduct in selling a great amount of useless equipment simply for huge profit promoted a false sense of security and in all probability materially contributed to causing death and injury to innocent people,” Judge Richard Hone told McCormick. “You have neither regret, nor shame, nor any sense of guilt.”
The detectors, sold for up to $ 42, 000 each, were said to be able to find such dangerous objects as bombs under water and from the air. But in fact they “lacked any grounding in science” and were of no use.
McCormick had told the court that he sold his detectors to the police in Kenya, the prison service in Hong Kong, the army in Egypt and the border control in Thailand.
“I never had any bad results from customers,” he said.
28. Why was McCormick sentenced to prison?
A. He sold bombs.
B. He made detectors.
C. He cheated in business.
D. He caused death of people.
29. According to the judge, what McCormick had done .
A. increased the cost of safeguarding
B. lowered people’s guard against danger
C. changed people’s idea of so cial security
D. caused innocent people to commit crimes
30. Which of the following is true of the detectors?
A. They don’t function on the basis of science.
B. They have caused many serious problems.
C. They can find dangerous objects in water.
D. They have not been sold to Africa
31. It can be inferred from the passage that McCormick .
A. sold the equipment at a low price
B. was well-known in most countries
C. did not think he had committed the crime
D. had not got such huge profit as mentioned in the text
Have you ever run into a careless cell phone user on the street? Perhaps they were busy talking, texting or checking updates on WeChat without looking at what was going on around them. As the number of this new “species” of human has kept risi ng, they have been given a new name — phubbers(低头族).
Recently, a cartoon created by students from China Central Academy of Fine Arts put this group of people under the spotlight. In the short film, phubbers with various social identities bury themselves in their phones. A doctor plays with his cell phone while letting his patient die, a pretty woman takes selfie in front of a car accident site, and a father loses his child without knowing about it while using his mobile phone. A chain of similar events eventually leads to the destruction of the world.
Although the ending sounds overstated, the damage phubbing can bring is real.
