INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Below The Line Advertising'

Below the line advertising seeks to reach a consumer (instead of a mass audience) directly rather than through an intermediary, such as would be the case with a commercial during a television show. This type of advertising is often centered on specific localities and is used to promote products that a consumer will want to see in person. It can be coupled with in-store sales help in order to explain the features of the product.
