Advertisements

Advertisements are public notices which are published in newspapers and magazines, aired on radio or television, displayed on billboards, etc. The purpose of advertisements is to attract the attention of the readers/ on-lookers and publicize some product or some service available with somebody. It is a very good and effective tool to promote sale and advertise requirements. Since the chief motive lies in using minimum words and providing maximum information, so we should select the words methodically and aim at clarity of the information. Advertisements printed in the newspaper are called Classified Advertisements.
