Find advertisements that illustrate each of the four motivational functions of attitudes. Distinguish between ads that are designed to reinforce an existing attitude and those aimed at changing an attitude.
1. The ad for the utilitarian function should stress the productâ€™s usage-related benefits (e.g., durable shoes).
2. The ego defensive function should reinforce the consumerâ€™s self-concept and protect it from feelings of doubt (e.g., personal care products which offer the consumer reassurance and the likelihood of approval by others).
3. The value-expression function shows how the product is consistent with the personâ€™s values and lifestyles (e.g., advertising a fine, expensive fountain pen as an instrument of self-expression).
4. An ad using the knowledge function should indicate the brandâ€™s advantages over competitive brands (e.g., a bar graph showing the comparative levels of saturated fat in several brands of butter).
