The demand for advertising and PR agencies has shot up in the recent times. All thanks to the growing number of startups as well as manufacturing and IT companies who are willing to set aside substantial budgets for advertising spends to increase their market shares thereby increasing business profitability. According to a report by Public Relations Consultants Association of India , the public relations (PR) industry is expected to touch Rs. 2,100 crore by fiscal 2020. The advertising industry has also evolved incredibly from being a small-scale business to a full-fledged industry. This particular industry is projected to be the second fastest growing advertising market in Asia after China.
Both advertising and PR tasks revolve centrally around people and their thought process. Connecting with the target audience plays a key role in this sector. Hence, it is imperative to understand the audience and it is never a one man show. A successful campaign requires a team approach to research, develop and create ideas and campaigns that communicate specific messages.
