    Highest C-suits in Creative Communication
    Indeed, evolution in business ethos is much related to market dynamics, customer demand, and changing technologies to ensure growth including senior leadership to ensure growth. Rising up to the challenges in business brought down by advancing technology and changing consumer trends, the senior C-suite leaders are dynamically spearheading the companies today, and have proved their dexterity even in the times of pandemic and post pandemic. CEOs, the highest C-suite leaders are the owners of a company, elected by the board of directors. Be it any industry, they are responsible for managing a company's overall operations, especially in Advertising Agencies their role is much different and even crucial. Along with proficiently indulging in delegating and directing agendas, driving profitability, managing company organizational structure and business strategy, they also involve themselves in the creative process of designing, planning and handling of advertisements to leverage the best possible means of communication to achieve business goals while promoting sales and awareness.

    Ads – The Cave Arts of 21st-Century
    Today, ads no more works as in old times, where pre-shoot stories played at certain intervals to a large audience, instead now ads connect people with culture and society including revolutionary ideas and ground breaking stories. An eye-catching ad is not a cake-walk, people pass hundreds of advertisements in daily life in the form of posters, print ads, television Ads, Social media Ads, online Ads, and many. Hence a good advertising strategy is paramount to get the products’ right visibility and stay ahead or at par with the competition. Because of this, any business irrespective of size entails advertisement to thrive.

    The word ‘advertising’ is precisely replaced by the word ‘marketing disciplines’ by marketers these days which paves a way for the age of Targeted Personalized Ads. Reaching right audience with right message is very important and marketers do this with the help of data analytics. According to Zendesk, 76 percent of consumers today expect personalized experiences, which could include engagement over their preferred contact method, account type or status, and product recommendations based on purchase and search history.
