Through the use of social media and technological advancement,

consumers today learned about what is happening in the world in many different

innovative ways. Companies are able to communicate with their consumers on a

whole new level. Consumers are able to gain up to the minute news and expand

their knowledge regarding the products. People can communicate with each in

different ways and can get message out to the world quickly and in creative ways

other than the sole of print. These are many different outlets that the media can

use to convey their message to the public. These methods are advertising.

Advertising works to create brands and meaning and as a result shapes identities

and the way people view society and live their lives. The media has a

tremendous amount of influence on the public and in many cases encourages

people to see things from a different perspective.

Advertising means of informing as well as influencing the general public to

buy a product or services through visual or oral messages. It also means paid,

non-personal, public communication about causes, goods and services, ideas,

organizations, people, and places, through means such as direct mail, telephone,

print, radio, television, and internet. The goal of advertising is not to sell products
but to sell a way of life; making consumers believe their product will have a

specific meaning in their life.

CONSUMER ACT OF THE PHILIPPINES Article 108 declares that

“The State shall protect the consumer from misleading advertisements

And fraudulent sales promotion practices.” Article 110 states that “it shall be
unlawful for any person to disseminate or to cause dissemination of any false,

deceptive or misleading advertisement by Philippine mail or in commerce by print,

radio, television, outdoor advertisement, or other medium for the purpose of
inducing or which is likely to induce or indirectly the purchase of consumer
products or services.”

This section is based partly on the protection of consumers, and the

researchers have through the implementation of this research recognize how

future studies in the area would be beneficial in order to understand the topic to

a larger extent and to present even more reliable results.

The researchers believe that this study contributes to the topic of a

comparative of study between print and social media advertisements as

perceived by the students of University of Rizal System-Antipolo.

Background of the Study

The term Advertising is derived from the Latin word ‘ac/vertere’ which

means ‘to turn’ the attention. Every piece of advertising attempts to turn the

attention of the readers or the listeners or the viewers toward a product. The

most widely accepted definition of advertising is the one which is given by the
American Marketing Association, according to which advertising is” any paid form

of non-personal presentation and promotion of goods, services and ideas by an

identified sponsors” (Kazmi and Batra, 2008). But the definition has some

limitations because it does not talk about the persuasion aspect of advertising,

without which it is very difficult to achieve advertising objectives.

The advertising message is considered as an important component in

advertising communication process. It is thought, idea, attitude, image or other

information that the advertiser wish to convey to the target audience. How an

advertising message is presented is critically important in determining its

effectiveness. How an advertising message should command and draw attention,

hold the interest, arouse desire for possession of the product, and elicit action

(Gupta, 2012).

Comparing Print and Social media, it is very easy to assume that the

social media is more better way when it comes promoting the products and

services because people easy collect the information in just snap by clicking the

button of the digital technology that almost people used it now in the present

time. While Print media is the old way to promote the products and services but

still useful nowadays and there are people who truly find it better specially the

person who dying hard fan of KPop idols, the famous celebrity and the people

live in an old fashion way as parents, grandmother and grandfather and etc.

because they could think that the people who make print advertisement are gave

their 100% to create a beautiful and interesting advertisement.

A newspaper has a high level for factual information. The readers also

hold high level of interest in the articles they read. They tend to pay attention to

advertisements as well as news stories. The increased audience’s interest allows

advertisers to provide a lot of copy details in their advertisements (Sharma and

Singh, 2009)

“Advertising” means dissemination of information or messages for a business

purpose, usually intended to promote commercial transactions or to enhance a

general standing of an entity or business in

Theoretical Framework

preference (Affective) and conviction and purchase (Conative) that can compare

the effectiveness of Print and Social Media Advertising. This study is specifically
