Is it a real conversation or are they actors trying to sell you something?
Everyday we are bombarded by hundreds if not thousands of advertising and marketing messages. Most of these are obvious because we know that we are being advertised to. Recently however a new form of advertising is becoming popular - stealth marketing.
In this programme we learn a little more about stealth marketing from a founder of an advertising company which specialises in this form of marketing.
