Description of Ambient Advertising. Explanation.

 

Definition Ambient Advertising. Description.


Ambient Advertising is a form of advertising displayed wherever there is outdoor space for the advertiser to show its message or image.


An ambient advertisement is any form of advertisement that differs from the one on printed pages, movies or broadcasting. It is also known as Captive Audience Advertising. It has been created to surround and draw the attention of perspective customers in the environment where they could need, or at least think of, the advertised product. As in Subliminal Advertising and Infomercials, the consumer is approached in a somewhat pushy way.


In everyday life there are plenty of examples of ambient advertisements: in the streets, in busses, undergrounds, railway stations, airports, and wherever companies are allowed to publish their message, brand, logo, or image.


In his 2002 article “The Commercialization of America’s consciousness” David Bollier, from Annenburg School of Communication, writes that advertising is nowadays surrounding people wherever they are. If we consider the aggregate offering of all ambient advertising in public spaces, the resulting effect is a Corporate Big Brother. In Bollier's opinion the ubiquity of marketing and advertising in daily life pushes people to integrate such messages in their framework of cultural values.
