Product placement or embedded advertisement is a modern form of marketing in which
brands target to reach a large audience without employing overt 'traditional advertising.' Usually,
in this form of advertisement, the product is embedded in a different form of media such as film,
television, and other digital platforms. Companies are required to pay to have their products
featured in TV programs, movie shows, or even in YouTube channels of influential vloggers.One
advantage of product placement is that participating firms hope that movie viewers or TV show
viewers are likely to take note of the products displayed in the shows and hence consider using
the products themselves. However, some audiences perceive product placement advertising as
unethical and deceptive.
If product placement is associated with a good movie or TV program, it creates a greater
awareness for the specific brand. Generally, a good movie is likely to be rewatched from time to
time, and if there are product placements in it, viewers tend to develop a positive feeling towards

employees are likely to have positive feelings when their products gain global recognition.
Employees get motivated when products from their companies are shared in blogs and social
media. This gradually increases the overall performance of the advertising firm.
Product placement is expensive for infant companies. Since TV shows target a large
audience, the film-makers tend to charge extremely high for product placements. Such costs
may go beyond thousands of dollars, and financially crippled companies may find it hard to
have their brands featured.
A major limitation of product placement is that competitive brands can easily cancel
each other out. At times, some movies and TV shows may involve very many product
placements from within the same industry such that the impact of the advertising gets canceled
out. If numerous brands from a similar industry are seen by viewers, then there is no loyalty
created. For instance, if Burger King's and McDonald's adverts are to be embedded in the
same movie, the effect of the advertising would not be felt.
Also, many potential clients are annoyed by product placements. This is because
product placements can be a very big distraction while watching an engaging movie, especially
when the advertising interferes with the plot of the movie. Sometimes, this is annoying because

advert. In the end, a viewer may develop a negative attitude towards the featured brand.
