The history of advertising can be traced to ancient civilizations. It became a major force in capitalist economies in the mid-19th century, based primarily on newspapers and magazines. In the 20th century, advertising grew rapidly with new technologies such as direct mail, radio, television, the internet and mobile devices. Advertising has changed a lot over the past couple decades due to the switch from traditional print to the Internet, which has introduced new technologies to more efficiently and accurately deliver advertisements to customers.
An advertising agency, often referred to as a creative agency or an ad agency, is a business dedicated to creating, planning, and handling advertising and sometimes other forms of promotion and marketing for its clients. Agencies may be hired to produce television advertisements, radio advertisements, online advertising, out-of-home advertising, mobile marketing, and AR advertising, as part of an advertising campaign.
The first agency dated back as far as 1786 when William Taylor opened his office in London, today acknowledged as the first advertising agency in history. However, while the UK business is considered the forerunner of advertising agencies in Europe, it was Volney B. Palmer who took the idea across the ocean.
In 1840 Palmer opened the first agency in American. Adland: A Global History of Advertising cites Palmer describing the services he provided using the term “agent”: “the duly authorized agent of most of the best newspapers of all the cities and provincial towns in the United States and Canada, for which he is daily receiving advertisements and subscriptions.”
Studies show that successful advertising agencies tend to have a shared sense of purpose with their clients through collaboration. This includes a common set of client objectives where agencies feel a shared sense of ownership of the strategic process. Successful advertisements start with clients building a good relationship with the agencies and work together to figure out what their objectives are.
While most people would assume that working in an ad agency is mostly about conceiving and producing ads and commercials, the creative process is actually only a small part of the work. agencies do lots of market research; prepare detailed media plans; buy online ads, advertising space, and TV broadcast time; and do many other things people loosely classify as marketing. Over the decades, agencies have evolved to suit the changing needs of the clients. The advent of the Internet, however, completely redefined their role and posed new challenges.
