The Power of Online Advertising


How is online advertising different from other types of advertising?


Why is online advertising important for a business?


How does it work?


To answer all these questions, let's take a case study


Mr. Prem owns a small business called KV Agro. He is a spices manufacturer and sells Turmeric, Chilli and Coriander powders under the brand rasoiKESAR.

rasoiKESAR - Premium Masalas

To promote Rasoi Kesar, Prem decided to go for print media such as Print Ad in local newspaper and a commercial Weekly Newsletter. He approached a local Ad Agency and designed a good visual Ad and finally published it. He spent a good amount of his marketing budget buying a full-page ad in the local newspaper and a Weekly newsletter.


When he opens up the Next day newspaper and sees his ad in all its glory, he was excited. He was pretty sure that this Ad campaign will help rasoiKESAR to generate lots of Inquiries and Leads, and finally drum up new customers.


But, Is he really confident that his ad is working?


Let’s find out

Does Prem Know how many people saw his Ad?


Does Prem know that his target audience saw his Ad?


Does Prem know that if his Ad led to an increase in his sales?


Result :

Unfortunately to his surprise!, Hardly 4 or 5 inquiries he received from this Ad Campaign and Ad in the newsletter.



While print is a good idea, Prem should also consider doing online advertising. That way he would have more idea of how many people in his target audience would see his Ad.
