TV has long been a powerful force in advertising with significant reach and scale, but it’s no secret that TV’s share of ad spend has been on the decline; in fact, 2017 is the first year in which digital ad spend is expected to surpass TV spending.

The print media is also another medium through which your brand message can be passed as it could be through newspapers, magazines, flyers and so on but recently the demand for this media has greatly dropped but one great thing about this media is that it works best when you target audience are mostly elderly people.
