Advertising is an essential form of communication that can be used to promote products or services, increase brand awareness and influence consumer behaviour. It is a powerful tool for businesses to communicate their message and reach their target audience.
Advertising can be divided into two main categories: traditional and digital. Traditional advertising includes TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and outdoor advertising such as billboards and posters. Digital advertising includes search engine optimisation, social media, email campaigns, and display advertising.
Advertising can be used to:
- Increase brand awareness

- Influence consumer behaviour
- Attract new customers
- Retain existing customers
