It is time for something a little different! For this discussion, you will be seeking visual examples of spontaneous and thoughtful persuasion strategies. The influence of social and mass media marketing is well understood and discussed in this article. Using the ideas from the article and the concepts from this week’s reading, scour social and mass media channels to find three visuals demonstrating the ability to persuade an audience, consumer, or small group of individuals. (You can even use television ads and billboards!)
Your post should provide:
- All three visuals (or their URLs)
- A brief discussion about the effectiveness of the visual. Remember to ground your discussion in the article’s ideas and concepts from this week’s readings. (Use at least 75 words per discussion.)
- A rank! Rank the visuals in order of their ability to persuade.
Remember to provide APA-formatted citation and references, as needed. You should post by Wednesday at 11:59 PM, PST and post substantive responses (50 words) to at least two class members by Sunday at 11:59 PM, PST.
