Companies communicate the information to their target customers about their products and

There is speculation that television commercials are getting close and losing their popularity as
viewers choose not to watch them. But it remains a speculation as television is all time famous
and effective one in arena of advertising to propagate the intended message to target customers.
In television commercials, to make advertisement more valuable one, advertising agencies use
different techniques and tools. An effective television commercial is a combination of a good
concept and content, advertiser’s features melodies ("jingles") in advertisements to be prominent
and memorable. Advertising agencies also use humor and animation as a tool often in their
advertisements to be more creative ones in targeting their customers. In addition to that
endorsement, frequency and the exposure of the ad make one company ad different from others.
These are the elements of TV commercials. Sometimes companies/ agencies combine these
elements in an appropriate way that may offend the consumer’s e.g. poor concept, too much
frequency and inappropriate time slot.
