How does an advertising agency get paid?
I worked at a radio station selling advertising. When I would ask my supervisor and boss how a marketing / advertising agency works, the answer I would get is...it's not worth your time or hard work. I have since quit my job due to, well, my boss was a tyrant, but that's irrelevant.

Can someone please tell me, how does an advertising agency get paid? Please be specific...thank you!
