Print advertisements have been iconic in their contribution to framing the way advertisements are right now. The earliest records of print advertising date back to the early 18th century in England, where advertisements for medicines, books and the like were being printed in weekly newspapers and pamphlets. The basic format of advertising had been set by then. Most ads back then featured a few lines of text – a brand name; a strong persuasion to acquire the product/service and a tag-line. To this day, all ads across all formats roughly stick to the same plan – answering the following questions in the customer’s mind – What is it? What does it do? Why should I buy it?
That’s about enough with history. The point I’m trying to stress upon is that newspaper advertisements are the first instances of concrete advertising, and it’s pleasantly surprising to know that despite the several branches and vehicles of advertising present today, newspaper text ads are still as prominent as they are effective. Newspaper classified advertisements are an extremely cost effective yet efficient mode of advertising.
One of the most established newspapers in India is the Hindustan Times. The Hindustan Times’ classified ads page is among the most popular destinations for advertising for various categories.
