Extracts from this document...


MEDIA Everywhere you go advertising is all around us. Whether it is in town with billboards and banners, or at home via the media with T.V. or radio. An advertiser needs to be very aware of the type of person that they are aiming to sell their product to. They also need to consider what is likely to motivate that person to buy their product.
