Television Advertising

Respond to the following post:

Television has not always been a regular item in households across the world but over the past couple of decades it has.

Although the internet is the fastest way to advertise products and services not many individuals that grew up without computers own a computer or are even computer literate.

Although many companies prefer the less expensive way to advertise, they still rely heavily on reaching the global market through television." Technology and other factors have profoundly changed the way consumers process communications, and even whether they choose to process them at all" (Kotler & Keller, 2012). Advertising through television is still very much the most powerful medium so as the price is right for the companies.
