With the development of material prosperity, advertisements have become more and more important in our daily life.
Advertisements give the newest information about product. If there are no advertisements, consumers could not know about goods in their nearby shops. Advertisement helps sell to a bigger market. Therefore, as more goods are sold, they are cheaper. Advertisements also provide money for newspapers, magazines, radio and TV stations, etc.
But there are also some opinions against advertising. Some people think that advertisements do not give much information but only try to persuade you to buy. They create a demand for goods that are not really needed. Besides, advertising adds to the price of goods.
Actually, every coin has two sides. Advertising is without exception. But in today's world, advertising is not only necessary but also helpful.
