Currently, the best place to advertise is on the Internet. To remove this option would essentially be the end of advertising forever. It may seem like a good thing on the surface, but advertisement also benefits the consumer especially on the Internet. The digital age has allowed advertisers to advertise only to people with similar taste to their product. This allows the customers to get more information about products they would enjoy.
Websites cost a ridiculous amount of money to run. The more popular they are, the more they have to pay in hosting fees. Some sites are so popular, in fact, that they have to spend thousands of dollars a month in bandwidth fees. The only way to pay these fees is to shut down completely, find sponsors, or start charging their visitors subscription. This is why internet advertising is so important to have. It's the only way websites can pay for the costs of operating and still remain free to the public.
