Who isn’t aware of the power of the advertisement?

We live in an age of multiple mediums. Advertisement in the 21st Century is not only limited to print. It is everywhere. From televisions to public places to social media and it takes care of all our needs ranging from how we should dress up to what we should eat.

It is often said, a good advertisement tells us we need something even before we think we do.

It offers us a promise. A look into the ideal life, the ideal body, the ideal mate, all wrapped in an ideal world.

With the advent of social media, the power of advertisement has only increased. Now more than ever, we have advertisements specifically customised for our individual behaviours.

Social Media has been a game-changer in terms of brand campaigns and advertising and companies were quick to realise it. Hence, every other day we see some or the other company jumping on the bandwagon to make their online presence felt but there are some who have cracked the code.

Companies That Are Killing It Online

While some are just starting out online, companies like Zomato and Swiggy have killed it online. Their marketing strategy? Effective Communication. With the use of memes, retweets on Twitter, and marketing campaigns that seem like regular interaction on social media platforms, they have surely created their own niche on the web.

Their online presence is so strong that netizens actually wait for their take on various online trends be it food-related or not.
