People often use the terms advertising and marketing interchangeably, but advertising is only a piece of a company’s overall marketing strategy. Let’s not downplay its importance, however – advertising equals awareness and a lack of awareness can kill any branding or marketing initiative.

Think of it this way: You have a great product, you have a well-crafted message that provides a compelling reason for people to buy, but you don’t have a way to put that message in front of your audience. That problem is solved through advertising, whether it is as small as a banner ad on a website or as awesome as a Super Bowl ad (please hire us to do a Super Bowl ad).

Advertising requires a lot of creativity, but it also requires a lot of strategy. A great ad grabs your attention, but great advertising must consider where the audience is and how to reach them. If the funniest commercial ever created airs on a channel nobody watches, that’s not great advertising.
