He said that the word campaign is actually derived from war in the military system, which is a planned strategy or operation to achieve the goal. In advertising too, a campaign is an effort to achieve set goals. Just as during a war, a commander makes a strategy to win the war, in which all three parts of the army are included, similarly, advertising strategy is also called a war of sales. To win the same, efforts are made to achieve the goal by broadcasting advertisements through all possible mediums. Thus, an advertising plan is an effort made as an organized unit to achieve a goal. He also told the students that what is the market situation for advertising scheme?
