another way of advertisement


Comparing the CM of Japan and the United States, CM in Japan often appoints a famous celebrity talent, uses that image to make a worldview instantly, and introduces the product in that.

In contrast, the CM in the United States has a long time frame of 30 seconds to 60 seconds, and we can afford to impress viewers by attracting viewers with the fun of ideas and images. Therefore, it is possible to deepen understanding about the product itself.

The biggest difference between Japanese and US advertisements is the way of thinking about 'comparative advertisement'.

Comparative advertisement is an advertisement method that appeals superiority by comparing rival companies and rival products with their products.

For example, in the past, there was a case in which commercials such as "A colleague of our company and another company's cola blindfolded and consumed by consumers, many people selected their own cola" was also broadcasted in Japan.

Such comparative advertisements are said to be "no problem if the contents are objectively correct and properly proved facts" in Japan. However, aggressive content that slanders other companies and other products gives consumers an unfavorable impression, so very radical expressions are being refrained. According to the "Unjustifiable Premiums and Misrepresentation Prevention Law", comparative advertisements that make consumers mislead the consumers if they are better or more advantageous than those of other companies are prohibited.

Trends such as whether the world is going to achieve rapid growth or how many people feel stalling are immediately reflected in advertisement costs.

If you compare Japan's GDP (gross domestic product) with the total advertising expenditure, you can find an interesting correlation.

"Advertising expenditure is proportional to the vector of change in GDP, but fluctuates more than GDP", and it has the characteristic that. In other words, the year when the economy improves and the year when it gets worse, advertising expenses react more to Vivid than real economy.

In many ways it can be said that "advertisement is a mirror of the world", but by looking at the statistics related to such advertisement expenditure, one hint can be obtained to understand the trend of the Japanese economy and the change of consumption it might be.
