“Advertising is the same thing as marketing” most of us at some point have either heard this statement from someone else or have even said it ourselves. I know for a fact that I had at one point when I was in my marketing class in high school, and we started a lesson on advertising, and I had wondered that in my head throughout the lesson. That question sparked a fascination in my head and even followed me to college, where I decided to study both of the subjects. I love both topics very much, they have given me insight different aspects of the field that I would not know about if I had chosen to focus on just one, and its that experience that I believe gives me the credentials to attempt to explain not only the differences in the topics but also how they complement each other.

Marketers, by nature, are "people people'. Not saying that every single one is an extrovert who pitches ideas like a used car salesman, instead, they are continually working towards finding what the best way to convey value onto the desired market is. If marketers are to effectively construct a strategy, campaign, or any other type of related activity, they first need an understanding of who their audience is. There are many ways, especially in today's age of technological advancement, that people can get these insights without really knowing too much about the thought process of the brain itself. Sure, it is smart to make marketing decisions based upon quantifiable reasons, but they are also other substantial factors that can and in my opinion, should be taken into consideration during this process. Furthermore, along with those technological advances, there have been advances in the medical field as well that play a massive part in the decision making of marketing plans.

Henry Ford stated, “A man who stops advertising to save money is the man who stops his clock to save time.” More importantly, the man who advertises without an effective advertising strategy is a man awaiting failure. Advertising strategies are the blueprints that help businesses communicate new/old products or services to consumers. New products that will be launched or old products that need to be marketed should be accompanied by an effective advertising campaign. An advertising campaign is a set of advertising messages revolving around a single idea and is designed based on the advertising strategy. Advertising efforts can achieve benefits, such as brand awareness and increased sales, for the company.

Think of your online presence as another physical store location that’s open 24/7. Hypothetically speaking, keeping the doors open will keep your business from losing an increasing large percentage of customers.
We are used to having information thrown at us everyday, that at some point, we zone out and stop absorbing it all. Guerrilla Marketing is an advertising strategy that focuses on low-cost unconventional marketing tactics.

There used to be a time when value was primarily denoted beyond what was seen, but rather read. Well this isn’t exactly the case anymore. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is drawn towards beauty. We have become a world society obsessed with glamour and aesthetically beautiful things. So what does this have to do with marketing? Just about everything as you might imagine.
Although advertising isn’t as ambiguous as it once was back in the day, it takes a savvy marketer to get real traction. One has to understand the value in being meticulous when it comes to planning, launching, and maintaining campaigns in the digital world. Unlike a Billboard that is posted and not changed until it’s time is up, digital ads require a different level of attentiveness to be effective.
You have already created the ad script, the ad objectives, and the ad design...and you’re probably thinking “once this gets posted we are all set to start seeing results”. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. In most cases, developing an effective ad is much more than just aesthetics. In this blog we will examine 5 key drivers of best practice advertising.
