Types of Mass Media
Books, newspapers, radio, social media platforms, booklets, and streaming services are all various forms of mass media. However, we distinguish four main types of mass media.
- Print media.Â It can range from billboards to coupons and is one of the easiest and oldest ways to reach the masses. Originally, print media refers to newspapers which were the main sources of information. Further, this type of media expanded to journals, books, and magazines.
- Outdoor media.Â Ambient marketingÂ is a great example of modern outdoor media. Brands use unusual locations and items to promote their products. Letâ€™s take Folgers, for example. This brand of coffee used manhole covers to promote coffee in a unique and eye-catching way. So, places like bus stops, public transports, and buildings can serve creative companies as places for promotion.
- Broadcasting media.Â With the help of an electronic broadcasting medium, audio and video content is distributed to a dispersed audience. Television, radio, video, and games appeal to heterogeneous audiences, people who differ in age, background, views, goals, and interests.
- Digital media.Â In 2021, there are aroundÂ 4.66 billionÂ active internet users worldwide which means that the world is dependent on digital media. Today, brands promote their goods and services through sites, YouTube, podcasts, and more. Besides, companies often refer toÂ Instagram marketingÂ andÂ Facebook advertisingÂ to pitch their products.
