What it is Advertising?

Advertising is the attempt to influence the buying behaviour of customers or clients with a persuasive selling message about products or services. In business, the goal of advertising is to attract new customers defining the target market and reaching out to them with an effective ad campaign.

Message intended to increase brand awareness or change consumer perception. Advertising is inserted for a fee in five different media: Internet, press, cinema, radio and television.

Non-media advertising includes direct marketing, e-mailing, display, street marketing and point-of-sale advertising.

It stands out from the editorial content of these media. Internet advertising, particularly through native ads and retargeting, challenges the distinction between direct marketing and media advertising. Brand content, increasingly used by brands, is a form of indirect advertising in the media.

The brand offers editorial content with no apparent link to it in order to arouse the interest of consumers. Communication technique the objective of which is to modify the attitude or behaviours of consumers towards a product. It is then said that it seeks to “attract” the consumer to the product.

And “search” advertising, which is based on hyperlinks leading to the advertiser’s site, and which will be offered to the Internet user on the occasion of a request made using an engine of research.

Interactive advertising

Audiovisual advertising message that allows the viewer to intervene during its broadcast. Using a remote control, a computer or a simple telephone, he can react to the content and form of the message to which he is exposed.

It requires the communication consulting agency to produce a large number of sequences, in order to allow a wide range of combinations to the viewer, who can then personalise the message in which he “participates” as he pleases.

It requires broadcasting on a cable network to allow direct interactivity, as well as a strong involvement of the viewer.
