nar-oh-kast verb. 1. Convenience Advertising is a method designed to carry focused messages to specific target groups in a highly effective manner. It can be contrasted with mainstream advertising, which uses TV, radio or billboards to display messages, by pointing out that these strategies broadcast while Convenience Advertising narrowcasts.

How We Work

The call to action may include raising awareness of a public health issue or driving sales through product knowledge of a commercial item.
