Which is The Best Form of Advertising?

Advertising has gone through various mediums throughout the years. Companies are always looking for the newest and best trends in advertising to try and test each year.

Advertising mediums have had their ups and downs, some have stuck around, while others have slowly drifted away. There are the new mediums that have popped up, only time will tell with those.

Advertising used to rely solely on television and print mediums. They were the two main forms of advertising and most advertising dollars spent were spent between them. Over the years, the list has expanded.

Advertisers now realize the importance of spreading out their budget over multiple platforms. Participating in trade shows, and creating custom trade show displays has become a big part of many company's strategy.

Mobile has also taken over the scene. Many companies are designing their website to be mobile compatible and participating in online advertising platforms such as Adwords, MSN Ad Center, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Although print and television are still around as advertising platforms, the amount of money being spent there has drastically decreased. Search engine optimization and online marketing is pulling funding away from those into developing an online presence rather than commercials and magazine ads.

Many people can argue that television and magazine ads are still one of the best ways to get your point across, but they will probably not try to argue against the importance of an online presence. Many shoppers have gone online. Whether they are using the internet to actually buy, or just research, companies need their products in front of these consumers.

Will television and magazine ads completely go away? No one knows. Only time will tell. Will mobile be where advertising dollars completely shift to? Again, only time will tell. Right now it seems that a good balance between is the way to go.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
