TV advertising effectiveness is a constant point of discussion asked in today’s ever evolving media landscape. In recent years TV has undergone a revolution, with the TV of today being available anytime,anywhere and on every device. This availability has strengthened the effectiveness of TV advertising and research has shown that TV still remains the dominant medium for communicating brands messaging.
