Almost everyday 24 hours a day and 7 days a week our mind is constanly being manipulated by commercial/advertisement about goods and services et cetera. Consciously or unconsiously, our consumer's behavior and spending habit is being influence by ads. That's the reason why comapny's/corporation spent billions of dollars in advertisement. We as consumers are the target of any advertisement. Yes, adviertisement stimulates one's appetites for a products or services even if you don't really needs it. It appeals to emotion. It is a simple sales talk. Do you pay attention to commercial or advertisement? Did you buy something because you were influnced by ads? Picture credit: youtube.com

If there was something that worth for me to buy products to were the exercise equipment, computer parts and vegetable meal. It's rare that I take attention for these commercials.

I have fallen for a few AS SEEN ON TV products. The commercials make the product look like it works well, but it usually does not.
