The purpose of advertising is to generate results. Those results differ depending on the type of campaign scheduled. While an awareness campaign is longer-term and designed to build your brand, an action campaign is a focused short-term investment that motivates people to quick response. Action campaigns are perfect for hitting goals and boosting sales, but what happens when the results fall short?
