I. Introduction

Effecting advertising comprise of a multitude of factors from the purpose and objectives to the implementation of the advertisement.

First at all, it is necessary to define the meaning of advertising. "Advertising is the non-personal communication of information usually paid for and usually persuasive in nature about products, services or ideas by identified sponsors through the various media." (Public.wsu.edu, 2015)
