Proposal Guide – Digital Advertising Methods In Communication Plans

Aims

The study will aim to investigate to what extent UK organisations are currently utilising digital advertising methods in their communication plans and thus to identify current advertising trends in the UK market.  The study will also aim to investigate the importance of digital advertising as a source of media communication and will inevitably aim to identify what makes a digital media campaign a success.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the recent surge in practice of digital (online) advertising over the typical conventional method of traditional advertising (television and radio) as a source of media used by UK organisations.  In the past decade there has been a rapid growth in the usage of the Internet as a marketing medium for many companies.

This has had a significant effect on how advertising budgets have been allocated as organisations attempt to embrace the digital era.  This research will attempt to investigate this rapid growth of online advertising and will help to explain the importance and necessity of digital medium for an organisation’s advertising strategy.
