Media Planning & Strategy
Reach & Convert Customers With A Multi-Point Media Plan Along Their Entire Consumer Journey
Media planning is how advertising agencies determine where, when, and how often they will advertise to efficiently and effectively reach and convert a client’s potential customers, known as a target audience, into paying customers.
The media plan analyzes current market conditions and media usage patterns of the target audience to determine the right mix of media across various online and offline channels such as search engines, social media, video, native content, broadcast, print, and more.
KEYS TO SUCCESS
In today’s competitive and complex marketing landscape, marketers need to serve consumers at the right place, at the right time, with the right message to best engage with their target audience and fulfill their business goals.
The initial market analysis, consisting of a situation analysis and the marketing strategy plan, is the first phase and foundation of any successful media plan.
The situation analysis allows the planning team to understand the client’s marketing problem in relation to its environment, marketplace, and competitors. The marketing strategy plan establishes specific objectives and goals that will solve the aforementioned marketing problems.
The improved knowledge gained through this process usually reveals a proffered target market, enabling the planning team to understand where the prime advertising space to gain sufficient exposure, what factors affect that specific demographic, and how to promote to the audience effectively.
Just as the marketing analysis leads to specific marketing objectives, the establishment of media objectives will result in explicit media objectives, such as introducing a product line, increasing sales, or creating a positive brand image.
Media Strategy Development & Implementation
During the Media Strategy Development and Implementation phase, the early research and objectives help form a tactical action plan for the rest of the campaign. This plan considers the media mix, target market, coverage consideration, geographic coverage, scheduling, reach and frequency, creative aspects and mood, flexibility, and budget considerations.
Once these tactics are in place, the team gets to work and unleashes the plan on the world; however, our work is far from over.
Evaluation and Optimization
The final phase in the media plan is to evaluate the plan’s effectiveness, optimize any tactics that aren’t fulfilling the plan’s goals, and determine what follow-up is required.
