Advantages of Online Advertising and Marketing for consumer
The greatest advantage to consumer is the ability to interact directly with business and also can choose the right product according to the choice. Furthermore Schumann, Thorson also describe that the interactivity can facilitate information flow, but some time direct communication bring up most significant disadvantage to the consumer in the sense of privacy.

Wider Coverage: The most significant advantage is Wider Coverage that gives your ads a wider coverage and this globally wider coverage helps in making your advertisements reach more audiences, which may ultimately help you in getting better results.

Targeted Audiences: Online advertising gives you 100% result for reaching target audience, because you can place or promote your add according to the target audience interest pages. Like for example if you are book publishing company you can place your add on educational website. And it’s give you more profitable outcomes.

Speed: Online advertising is much faster than offline advertising and you can start sending out your ads to a wider audience, the moment you start your advertising campaign.

Informative: In online advertising, the advertiser is able to convey more details about the advertisement to the audience and that too at relatively low cost. Most of the online advertising campaigns are composed of a clickable link to a specific landing page, where users get more information about the product mentioned in the ad.

Flexible Payment: Payment flexibility is another added advantage of online advertising and marketing. In offline advertising you need to pay the full amount to the advertising agency irrespective of the results. But in online advertising there is the flexibility of paying for only qualified leads, clicks or impressions.

Easy Audience Engagement: Online advertisement makes is easy for the audience to engage with your ads or products. As an advertiser we would be able to get more feedback from the audience and thereby improve the quality of our ads going forward.

Better Branding: any form of advertising helps in improving the branding and online advertising stands a notch high in improving the branding of your company, service or product.


Finally the conclusion of the essay is that the online advertising and marketing have advantages and disadvantages for the advertiser and as well consumer, But on the other hand side it is clearly moving us towards new technology with different strategies for communicating each other and selling goods and services. and “The web is expected to increase 1,000% within the next few years” (Schumann, Thorson, 1999. p.307).morover the big website like Google, Facebook, YouTube is the perfect example of growing online asvertising business.But on the other hand side internet user also woried about the security issue.Like putting there every single details on internet.It is very help full for the advertisier point of view becoause they can easily get to know what you want , what you like, Dislike, What music you listen and so many things.becuase of these thing they can easily target you.
