*The Advertising Handbook*, fourth edition, Routledge

Edited by Jonathan Hardy, Iain MacRury and Helen Powell

The new edition of /The Advertising Handbook/is designed to meet the needs of the most recent generation of media and advertising students.

/The Advertising Handbook/provides a critical introduction to advertising and marketing practices today. With fourteen chapters and contributions from Joseph Turow, Helen Katz, John Sinclair, Andrew McStay, Janet Hull, Paul Feldwick and other leading international scholars and practitioners, the new edition offers extended coverage of the contemporary shifts and pressures reshaping the advertising and marketing industries and their relationship to the consumer. Profiles and case studies illustrate innovation and diversification among advertising, marketing and public relations companies. Discussion questions encourage debate about the activities and influence of advertising today.

This Fourth Edition explores the growing significance of:

  * the influence of ‘Big Data’ and automation in digital advertising;

  * tracking and profiling users across digital communications for
    targeted and personalised marketing communications;

  * the rise of media and advertising integration through sponsored
    content, product placement, native advertising and other forms of
    branded content;

  * the dynamic shifts in ad spending and media–advertising
    relationships across legacy media, online and social media; and

  * the complex profile of consumer behaviour that produces new
    challenges for brands and branding.
