The main entity of this text is an advertising[3] campaign. An advertising campaign is a strategic initiative by a business to promote its products or services using different types of media channels. It’s a coordinated series of marketing communication activities that include integrating marketing communication methods, choosing media channels, and defining the target market and product positioning. In an advertising campaign, both traditional and alternative media[2] channels are used to reach out to the target consumer[5]. This process involves carefully selecting the target market demographic and creating a unique brand[6] image to attract the intended audience. Successful campaigns often use out-of-the-box strategies like guerrilla marketing[1] and make use of sensory cues to create a memorable experience for consumers. Ultimately, the goal of an advertising campaign is to enhance customer[4] satisfaction, differentiate the product in the market, and build a unique brand identity.
