Sample text

In their portrayal of older adults, advertising relies on characters that almost never deviate from a narrow range of age-specific behaviors in a straightforward way. Taken together, these modes of portrayal do not overtly stereotype or denigrate older adults (notwithstanding a couple of egregious examples). However, our analysis shows that these portrayals cannot be considered liberating and instead reinforce damaging and constraining cultural schemas. How can we account for these portrayals? We argue that these modes balance preexisting dominant cultural schemas for identity of older adults’ with marketers’ imperatives to persuade audiences and to generate positive affect toward the advertised good or service.

As computer and satellite technology spilled over into academic and commercial arenas, it became possible to track TV viewing behavior, magazine readership, and mail order frequency. Marketing segmentation methods were employed to better understand consumers based on finer demographic, psychographic, and behavioral details. Of course, the seventy-six million baby boomers were a market force to be reckoned with and many manufacturers and brands were born in the 1960s and 1970s in an attempt to capture the attention (and brand loyalty) of the new youth culture.

New social roles for the elderly may form as they continue healthy and productive lives. Advertising will be more and more data driven and depict consumer behavior more accurately. Thus a more complete understanding of the new aging consumer in the marketplace will arise. CONCLUSION: FUTURE RESEARCH This chapter attempted to explore the evolution of advertising to the elderly and the direction it is headed. It does not address the ethicality of such advertising and the lack of representativeness that has been cited often.
