ad•ver•tis•ing n.: The activity of attracting public attention to a product or business, as by paid announcements in the print, broadcast, or electronic media.
Also defined as „the non personal communication of information through various media, paid for by the advertiser and is usually convincing in nature about the need to buy products and services“ – the advertisers of course.
Advertising your company’s products and services to your targeted audience is essential to maintain a long lasting and prosperous relationship. If you’re not continually winning your customers over than the competition will.
