Choose the media based on the strategy

Each media has a purpose.

Choose the media based on the marketing strategy.

Broadcast TV – To reach the masses with a single :30 spot. Reach is the goal.

Radio – To reach narrowed, targeted, niche groups of people with frequency being the goal.

Trade Publications – One business talking to another.
Cable TV – “Radio with pictures.” Same goal – same objective.
Consumer Magazines – To reach upscale people in their leisure time with high ticketed items.

Outdoor – A “reminder” medium. Similar to a :10 spot in broadcast. Good to reach the masses with reach and frequency the goal.

Media buying and planning – why hiring a media buyer will save you money

In broadcast media, one of the two ways media buyers and sellers measure cost-efficiencies is by CPP or cost-per-point. Cost-per-points are what keep buyers within their budgets. Buyers rely on Sqad or Media Market Guide to tell them what a CPP should be in an upcoming quarter, by market, by day part. Both services are very reliable in their reporting.
