What is Advertising?
Advertising is a form of communication used to influence
individuals or companies to purchase products or services or
support political candidates or ideas or image, recruit staff,
publicize an event, or to locate an item or commodity,
through any medium of public communication.
Advertising often attempts to persuade potential customers to
purchase or to consume a particular brand of product or
service. It communicates a message that includes the name of
the product or service and how that product or service could
potentially benefit the consumer.
The company pays for ad space. You know exactly when that
ad will be aired or published. You have creative control on
what goes into that ad. You can run your ads over and over for
as long as your budget allows.
Advertising media are newspapers, magazines, television and
radio, business publications, billboards, electronic mails, and
online banner ads.
There are two basic types of advertising, informative
advertising and persuasive advertising.

frustrates your internal and external customers, and
adversely affects the bottom line.

issued by a corporate / organization / body / institute
