Is it really a stretch to imagine that most of our conscious or unconscious actions of our lifestyle choices are as per the advertisements we are privy to? Since the dawn of the industrial revolution, advertising has come a long way for products and services to reach its intended target market. For a business to grow, it is essential for the people to know about the products and services a business has to offer and in this interconnected world of ours, advertising has become an integral part of the daily life.
Today, information dissemination has become faster and cheaper. Advertising, at this digital age, is not only the means to showcase the brand’s new products, but also to maintain their market presence and increase the market shares. Advertising taps into the subconscious mind of the audience, manoeuvring them into creating false needs to become a part of the ‘cool’ crowd by glorifying the products and services.
But no matter the opinions of the society, the truth is, the world cannot thrive without advertisements. Ads spread messages to a large number of people with just one communication and also assists in bridging the gap between consumers and suppliers of products and services. Safe to say, advertising has become the necessary evil for creating customer awareness and projecting information to the consumers for the upliftment of the society.
