Caselet Social Awareness Advertising
S.R. Iyer and Tara Sinha, two famous advertising personalities, have expressed their views on Social Awareness Advertising as follows –Social awareness advertising promotes ideas. Though, for these ideas, creativity would be of a different kind. A product is out there in a shop. A bar of soap is an investment of small consequence. But trying to sell the idea such as a free cancer check up, or family planning, or keeping the Ganges clean, is totally different proposition. Social awareness advertising has potential to accelerate process of change in urban and rural society and to do the public relations job. Also known as Public Service Advertising, it should bear a stamp of professional excellence that moves people to action.
