Although our methods for advertising may be new and intriguing, advertising has existed for more than 5,000 years. Throughout known history, companies have used advertising to encourage the audience to choose a particular item or service, discuss issues that matter to the community at large, or generate interest and engagement around a particular point of view.
In recent years, online advertising has seen a significant increase, with banner ads, browser ads, and ads on social media slowly gaining prominence. This has led some marketing experts to conclude that the print ad is dead – but this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
