What is advertising?

Advertising is a $540 billion global business, with average growth of over 4% a year. UK growth is even higher, at over 5%, and the UK leads the world in the transformation to digital.

Advertising creates over 250,000 UK jobs and drives the wider UK creative economy. Advertising underpins the business success of major technology platforms like Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Advertising is anything that promotes a brand or concept. In the days of Mad Men, that meant an advert on the telly, in the newspaper, on the radio or on a billboard. Nowadays, advertising can be a tweet, an app, a stunt, a start-up, a film, a website or even now products and services like the Nike + Fuelband.
