    • E.

      TV

    Correct Answer
    C. Both '1' and '2'
    Explanation
    Online advertising uses both the Internet and the World Wide Web. The Internet is a global network of computers that allows for the transfer of data, while the World Wide Web is a system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed through the Internet. Online advertising takes advantage of both of these technologies to reach a wide audience and promote products or services. This can include display ads, search engine marketing, social media advertising, and more. Additionally, radio and TV are not typically considered part of online advertising, as they are separate mediums that require different strategies for advertising.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    When a product or brand is embedded in entertainment and media then it is known as

    • A.

      Covert advertising

    • B.

      Guerrilla advertising

    • C.

      Both '1' and '2'

    • D.

      Overt advertising

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Both '1' and '2'
    Explanation
    When a product or brand is embedded in entertainment and media, it is known as covert advertising. Covert advertising refers to the practice of subtly promoting a product or brand within the content of a movie, TV show, or other forms of media. This can be done by featuring the product or brand in a natural and integrated way, without explicitly stating that it is an advertisement. Guerrilla advertising, on the other hand, refers to unconventional and often unexpected marketing tactics that aim to grab attention and create a buzz. While both covert advertising and guerrilla advertising involve unconventional marketing strategies, they are not the same thing. Therefore, the correct answer is Both '1' and '2'.

    Correct Answer
    A. Publicity
    Explanation
    Publicity refers to the information or news about a company or its products that is disseminated through various media channels. It can have both favourable and unfavourable impressions on the public. Positive publicity can enhance the company's reputation, increase brand awareness, and attract more customers. On the other hand, negative publicity can damage the company's image, erode customer trust, and lead to a decline in sales. Therefore, publicity has the potential to create both positive and negative perceptions among the public about the company and its products.

By including benchmarks in the statement of advertising objectives, it becomes easier to assess the effectiveness of the advertising campaign and make any necessary adjustments or improvements. Additionally, benchmarks help to set clear and specific goals for the campaign, ensuring that it is aligned with the overall marketing objectives.
