Vividly, one can say that any organization that seek to sell it product or service must be able to use advertisement effectively in order to obtain a desirable objective.

To advertising programme of any firm has three (3) main objectives:

  1. Informative objective
  2. Persuasive objective
  3.     Reminding objective

The first which is informative objective aim at informing the public about the product or services. The information carried out may be about the price of the product or use, especially when the product is newly introduced into the market. The product will get to the consumers through advertising hence, automatically informing the public about the product.

The second which is persuasive objective aim at convincing the customers and the general public to buy their product or services and telling the general public the satisfaction to be derived from their product usage.

Thirdly, the reminding objective aim at reminding the potential customers about the product in which they are advertising that if purchased, the product will be able to meet the needs for the purpose the customers bought them. For instance, Nigeria Bottling Company brings out new form of advertisement every year to remind the customers and the public about Coca-Cola. Especially a situation where a producer wants to introduce a new product into the market, he will like to use information to let the consumers know the use, price, quality and quantity.
