What are the functions of advertising?

According to the definition committee of the America Marketing association \u201cAdvertising is any paid form of non personal presentation and promotion of ideas, goods or services by an identified sponsor\u201d.

Advertising is non-personal because it is directed to group of people rather then specific individual. It communicates the information about the product, Its benefit and use. The identified product or who pays for advertisement to be released in the mass media or communication channel. That reaches to the group of people.

There are various function of advertising, which it performs towards business, consumers and
general public. These are establishes below

Advertising always helps people to differentiate their product from others.

For example, large super markets or store likes \u201clife-style\u201d,\u201dEbony\u201d etc. They always advertise that you can buy most of the things from there stores like cloths of every range and for every age, also kitchen goods, furniture etc. for which in an ordinary market, you have to spend whole day to find out different shops for different above mention things. Another example is of ICICI bank they are saying that they are offering home loan at the lowest rate of interest of 8.25% for 20 years as compared to other area.

market to set their products. With the help of advertisement they after various kind of discounts, gives very attractive offers etc. just to increase their sake by creativity an urge. These people are using different medium like T.V., magazine, newspaper, banners, road show etc.

Thus these kinds of scheme advertised by various companies always increase the urge regarding their products.

reason to prefer a brand over the other competitive brands & that performance slowly and
steadily will charge into brand loyalty.

For example pharmaceutical industries, industries involving in technical products where they have sufficient sales force to promote the company brand. Continuous visits of sales person with various kinds of promotional input reminders and scientific data regarding a

brand will work as on advertisement to that customer and that customer slowly and steadily

Describe how the advertising message passes through the consumer. Describe each step.
Though following 6 most important steps, an advertising manager passes through the consumers.

Step-1: -Awaren ess: - This is the basic step of the whole process. Until & unless the customer is being aware to buy it & that is possible thought an advertising with an advertising message. Especially for a new brand launch, awareness is the most important step.

will be the advertising message that will convince them.

The source encodes the message with the help of words and images. The medium, which carries the message, is Radio, T.V. or Newspaper. The audience, which receives the message, will decode the message & after decoding a feedback will be given to the advertiser.
