Tod ate we still have poor understanding of the role of eﬂective communication with customers in attracting and monitoring prospect and present customers. This research project evaluates the effectiveness of advertising campaign and personal selling practices of Ethiopian Telecommunication Corporation (ETC) with the aim of ﬂnding solution to improve the existing communication and customer satisfaction. A sample of 400 respondents was selected in terms of service type determined by stratiﬁed sampling. Among which, 373 responded. The data collected from 373 respondents was analyzed based on predetermined rating factors and expected result of performances. The ﬁndings of the analysis reveal that ETC's advertising and personal selling indicated average performance in providing information, creating awareness, and building company image and enforcing brand loyalty. The ﬁndings also show lack of integration between advertising and personal selling.
