“Advertising is a universal term to TCAers. It’s not just about paying to have a brand placed somewhere, it’s in everything we do. “Advertising” has been around forever in different forms of communication, persuasion and relationship building, but the best understanding of advertising is one that is constantly evolving to fit the world around us. But at the end of the day, tactics change, but the principles stay the same. Advertising is at its best when we’ve done our jobs to create strategic, integrated ads within a larger marketing presence.”
