Be it television advertising or radio advertising, the overall cost of the ad spend is afforded by the brand owner.
What makes any advertising campaign interesting is the creative input. Be it outdoor advertising or television advertising, creativity is an outstanding feature of any product ad. One needs to figure out the striking features of a brand and present it as an interesting brand message to target customers. A creative brand message leaves a positive impression on customers mind.
