Activity 4:

Infomercial

[lo 5.2, 1.4]

Most of us can be tempted to give way to our basic desires. Traditionally there are 7 deadly sins that tempt us all, and many of them are exploited by advertisers and retailers like FAMILY FURNISHERS who play on our weaknesses and appeal to our hidden desires.

The stereotypical bargain hunter is attracted by:

Free gifts

Coupons

Two-for-the-price-of-one offers

Competitions and the chance of winning

  • On television, INFOMERCIALS especially appeal to bargain hunters.
  • “and if you phone now . . "

Work in pairs and develop a revolutionary new product.

Clearly identify the target market of your product.

Now prepare an infomercial-style presentation in which you advertise your product in two different ways.

Advertisement 1: Present an informative infomercial that gives the audience/viewers a good amount of factual information about the product and its effects. Advertisement 2 Present an advertisement that will particularly appeal to the bargain hunters in the audience. Make sure that the special offers are more dominant than actual information about the product.

Presentation Rubric: Infomercial

4 3 2 1
Organisation and Preparation Pupil presents infomercial in logical, interesting sequence which audience can follow. Pupil presents infomercial in logical sequence which audience can follow. Audience has difficulty following presentation because pupil jumps around. Audience cannot understand presentation because there is no sequence of information.
“Product" knowledge Pupil demonstrates full knowledge (more than required) with explanations and elaboration. Pupil is at ease with content, but fails to elaborate. Pupil is uncomfortable with information and is able to answer only rudimentary questions. Pupil does not have grasp of information: Pupil cannot answer questions about the product.
Delivery and Impact Pupil's voice is clear. Pupil pronounces most words correctly. Motivated to perform well. Audience kept interested Pupil's voice is clear. Pupil pronounces most words correctly. Motivated to perform well. Audience kept interested. Pupil pronounces terms incorrectly. Audience members have difficulty hearing presentation. Audience battles to remain interested. Pupil mumbles, incorrectly pronounces terms, and speaks too quietly for the whole class to hear. Audience not interested.
