Advertising is a communication whose purpose is to inform potential customers various products and services and how to obtain and use them. Nowadays, Advertising plays an important role in people’s daily life. An advertisement is also a product and like every other product in the world, it has its pros and cons. Most advertisements are designed to connect a product or a service to a particular set of feelings like belonging, love, status, respect, or power. This approach is most common because exposure to an individual ad is so brief. A TV commercial may take up fifteen to thirty seconds of your attention, and a print ad may be seen for only one to three seconds as you flip by it in a magazine or newspaper. There is no doubt that persuasive techniques in advertising are effective. They can raise your level of awareness about a product or issue—or change your attitude altogether. They can even affect your behavior itself, by convincing you to take action or to buy a product. Advertising is everywhere in our society.
Since there are so many ads competing for our attention, advertisers know they have to make a strong impression quickly. Creators of ads focus on using simple, easily understood images and slogans to create a dominant impression. Advertising brings many benefits to human’s life. Advertisement is a way of raising awareness about a particular product. It is hardly for customers to purchase a new product without known anything about it, so the advertisement increases the potential customers’ knowledge of the goods. Similarly, people have a chance to compare and contrast the prices and qualities of same types of products through advertising to get a much reasonable price and better quality. Last but not least, advertising makes shopping simpler and more time-efficient. It helps eliminate unnecessary risk- taking and facilitates easier decision-making at the point of purchase.
The origin of creative advertising does not lie in the modern industrial age, but it has its roots in the remote past. Thousands of years ago most people were engaged in hunting, farming, or handicraft related activities. They used to barter products among themselves. Distribution was limited to how far the vendor could walk and distribute, advertising was limited to how loud they could shout. Perhaps the earliest form of advertising was simply the trader shouting out the fact that he existed and naming what he had to sell in the local market place. As an instrument of marketing, creative advertising was an effective through multiple sales people reaching many people at one time. Then it had used the media as a tool.
The American marketing association defines creative advertising as “any paid form of non-personal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods or services by an identified sponsor”.
