Advertisements In Nepal Essay

581 words - 3 pages

There are no records of any kind that tell us about the origin and history of Nepali advertisements. The earliest form of advertising may thus be taken as the trumpet blowing tradition of kings and maharajas to disperse royal messages. The advent of Mass Communication in Nepal can be said to have been through such official proclamations, which were usually accompanied by the use of musical instruments like drums or trumpets. The age-old oral tradition of promotion by vendors selling their wares in the market can also be taken as another early form of advertising.

In context of Nepal which bears little resemblance to that of an Indian setting, the same advertisement is dubbed into Nepali and broadcasted regardless of the demography and the economic orientation that influences consumer behavior. How something researched in India can be assumed to be true for the Nepalese consumer market, is something to be given a serious thought to. We are just operating under a hypothesis that if some data has come from the Indian market research, it can be sure shot target for Nepal as well. An equally pertinent question is whether or not the Nepalese consumers can relate themselves with the Indian characters and that might be where the advertisement loses its essence or impact power. These advertisements simply don’t connect with the Nepali target audience. As long as we continue to use these advertisements, we’ll be in a state of complacency and seldom will we encourage our minds to think out of the box.
Though in the last few years, with the advent of some internationally-trained local creative minds, it has been evident that Nepali agencies have matured to a large extent. There are a couple of very well-planned campaigns that have reflected better understanding of the fundamental concepts of advertising. But, the battle with innovative foreign minds will require us to promote our ideas and not replicate theirs. Changes have to come in perception, work ethics, methods and technologies. The path ahead is challenging, but we should think out of the box to better match our advertisements to our culture, society, demography and context.
