Advertisement is a vital part of the economy and the success of business. Without it, something terrible happens…nothing. To allow a business to grow, it must be noticed, whether on T.V., in magazines, or in the yellow pages. It would not matter how brilliant a business is if there is no way to let the world know about it.
In this light, without advertisement, there would essentially be a significant lack of choices in jobs or businesses. Only the most powerful and conspicuous establishments would receive attention. People sometimes lack the aggressive nature to go out into the streets and discover what kind of trades and services exist, of which they may take advantage. Advertising is a way for the general public to gain education of the products, services, and industries that are at their disposal. It is a passive way to gain knowledge about what is out there.
Advertising not only helps the business through growth, but also benefits the people supporting such businesses by allowing them the chance to view all the economic choices they have. The whole idea behind free enterprise in our country is the right to own and operate one’s own business as chosen, but without advertisement, this could not be possible. Advertisement allows businesses to be more competitive against their rivals, and without this extra edge, success would unattainable. So, advertisement gives the small business owner a chance to be lucrative right along with the giants of industry.
In conclusion, advertising is important not only to the growth of business but to the freedom of the individual to take advantage of the many choices in commerce. Without it, not only would there be a detrimental lack of small business, but the world of enterprise would be one barren of choice.
