advertising agency is TBWA who is a global advertising agency who advertise
many well-known companies. Apples advertising agency offer the following services;

Media buying- Apple’s advertising agency (TBWA) will decide the best advertising
option is best for the products. For example, the iPhone X was advertised
online and on TV as a lot of consumers for the iPhones are into technology,
hence it was advertised a lot online.  They
will be matching demographics of a product with the demographics of a medium;
TV, online, newspaper and magazines. After matching the demographics they will
produce the right advertisement.

Advertisement design- TBWA will
create the appropriate advertisement for the product. For example, the iPhone X
is a product sold by Apple, therefore they will have to advertise it with the
features it has. There are many phones available in the market; therefore, TBWA
