This week in Business, I have been learning about the different parts of ads and how to write them. In this essay, I am going to write a pretend ad for two novels I plan on selling, and explain my logic for it.
The logic for my ad is quite simple. Besides listing the price, I also showed a picture of the product to show customers that the books are in good condition. I also included the books’ descriptions, the author, how many books I am selling, their conditions, the genre and appropriate age group, and their original prices. I thought that if people knew the original prices, they would know that I am offering them a good deal. For my ad, I was following the format of book ads I have seen on different online shopping platforms like Shopee and Lazada (primarily Asian platforms).
As you can see, I added all of the necessary details to the ad. I have never written an ad before, and I am not sure if this will sell well, but I think I did a good job of attempting to write one.
