Inspire your audience with a creative
What is the difference between advertising and marketing?
Advertising is a component within marketing involving a paid form of communications intended to inform and persuade through media such as the Internet, television, radio, magazines, newspapers, direct mail, and outdoor displays.
Marketing, on the other hand, is the umbrella term for the activities and processes involved in creating, communicating, and delivering value to customers and society at large.
How can advertising help my business?
Advertising memories can last a lifetime.
Think back on some of your favourite childhood television commercials! What do you remember about them and how did they make you feel?
Advertising is a way to get helpful information in front of your customers who can then use it to make informed decisions as they consider your products and services. However, it is not easy to craft a compelling message or create an engaging impression that sticks in the minds of viewers. Marketers understand that the best ads provoke emotional responses, use appropriate imagery, the psychology of colour, sound, and a creative storyline to capture the audience.

Retargeting/ Remarketing Ads
If you have ever visited a website then noticed online advertisements following you around as you browse social media and other websites, you were likely “retargeted.”
Only 2% of website visitors convert to paying customers on their first website visit.
Retargeting opens the door to reconnect with the other 98% to win back their attention.

Magazine/ Newspaper/ Publication
Display your message in front of niche audiences in trade magazines, business newspapers, and other types of publications based on circulation and the nature of the readership.
Traditional roadside billboards are used for building brand awareness to as many people passing by a high traffic location as possible. Digital billboards and signage extend a brand’s reach in locations such as restaurants, bars, cafes, private clubs, post-secondary institutions, airports, and other public spaces.
Transit advertising is typically found on the outside or inside of buses, subways, taxis, and trains or in the common areas of transit terminals and stations. It can be effective at reaching a variety of commuting demographics including urban working professionals, students, and tourists.
Despite the growth in digital ad spend, television continues to be an effective choice for larger organizations to gain brand awareness with particular audiences.
Broadcast radio can expand your brand’s reach and the repetition (frequency) of delivering your message to the same audience over time. This repetition enforces recognition. Radio listenership rates remain high in both Canada and the United States. According to Deloitte Global, 86% of Canadians and 94% of Americans report listening to the radio at least once a week.
