Advertising: What Everyone Needs to Know®
3000. That's the number of marketing messages the average American confronts on a daily basis from TV commercials, magazine and newspaper print ads, radio commercials, pop-up ads on gaming apps, pre-roll ads on YouTube videos, and native advertising on mobile news apps.

What ideas and information are being communicated to us--and to what end?
