Advertising comes in many shapes and forms, they can be huge billboards that stand tall over a road or the motorway, or a small little leaflet that is being handed out in the street that are only going to contribute towards the amount of litter in the streets but the one thing that all adverts have in common is the fact that they are all purposely designed to make us think or behave in a certain way. Advertising has become a huge business were large amounts of money can be made, because companies want the best adverts going they employ private businesses that are up to date with the technology etc but when making an advert a lot of hard work goes into it because they spend a lot of time and money into the product analysis to find the best way to advertise the product or whatever it may be that they have been employed to advertise, then they also have to look into how other companies are advertising and what they are doing to attract the crowds ?? ?? ?? ??
