    Essay plan

    I am planning to wite on the following topic.

    Advertising is all around us, it is an unavoidable part of everyone’s life. Some people say that advertising is a positive part of our lives while others say it is a negative one. Discuss both views and include your own opinion. Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience


    Positive:

    - Comes to know about latest products, fashion and style
    - Saving by benefitings promotional deals.
    - Necesary for companies while launching new products.

    Negative:

    - People tend to buy after watching their favorite celebrity in the Ads.
    - Excessive Buiying, Waste of money


    I though to have above said point in my essay. Please guide me, whether i am doing right???

    Re: Essay plan

    That looks more like a good initial brainstorming effort than an actual plan.

    Now you need to:
    - Decide which position to take.
    - Organise your ideas (how they fit together in body paragraphs).

    Comment: I don't necessarily see the problem with the first negative point you listed. It seems to be part of the second point (buying unnecessary things). Perhaps you could discuss how advertising adds to costs, thereby leading to higher prices.

    Didn't you just suggest that you plan to "favor" advertising?

    Re: Essay plan

    Please check how I performed the task.


    Advertising has become integral part of the companies’ policies. It is an easy and efficient way of promoting products with minimal time span. Some people argue that advertising keep us informed about latest products, promotions and offers, which help in decision making and cost saving. However, others state that their buying habits are changed by advertising, and it disturbs their monthly budget. I strongly believe that advertising make our life easy and colorful.

    Nowadays, companies are finding different ways of advertisement. It gives sudden boost to the sale of their products by targeting maximum potential users. Advertising also increased the buying capacity of people’s by availing different promotions and offers. Furthermore, it keeps us updated about the latest fashion and lifestyle. That enables peoples to look different from others.

    However, Companies spend huge amount for advertising. They would like to have celebrities in their ads, who has big fan following. These celebrities charged in millions for an ads of one to two minutes. Thus, this added to the cost and result in higher prices of the product. In addition to this, people tend to buy more by seeing their favorite personality in the ads regardless of the need or use of it. This has greatly affected the lower class of society. Because the prices have drastically increased when there is a demand of item.

    In conclusion, I would like to say that the benefits of advertising overweigh its disadvantages, Advertising enable us to be trendy and stylish while enjoying the best available offers.

    A plan is a blueprint of the essay.

    Re: Essay plan

    There are still logical flaws in your thinking.
    Do you know for a fact that prices are higher because of paid celebrity endorsements? Do you know for a fact that poor people all rush out to buy products they cannot afford because a celebrity said it was good? I doubt you do, but you state it as a fact.

    You also talk only about fashion - that advertising helps us "look different from others." In your brainstorming, you gave more good reasons than you do here. You also say that advertising increases buying capacity (no it doesn't - people have the same amount to spend whether there are ads or not, and if there are discounted prices, they exist whether there is an ad or not) but that is a contrast to your saying that ads make products cost more.

    You are not ready to jump into your writing yet. You need to spend more time on the planning part.

    Ask yourself this for each point you raised in your brainstorming:
    Why do I think this is true?
    What is this point important?

    If you are not sure it's true, leave it out.
    If you can say why you think it's important, then you have the follow-sentence.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Essay plan

    One question. I have heard we can write anything whether it is right or wrong. I mean whether it is a fact or not.

    When i start writing nothing comes in my mind. Its very difficult for me. I dont know how to solve this problem.

    Re: Essay plan

    Where did you hear that it's OK to write anything, whether it's a fact or not? Of course, it is physically possible to write something which isn't true but there's no reason to do that in an essay. If you're writing a novel or a short story, you can invent facts as much as you like.

    Would you have the same problem if you were trying to write this essay in your native language?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
