1. SEM I 3.08 SELECTING ADVERTISING MEDIA - DETERMINING REACH - CALCULATING MEDIA COSTS

2. ADVERTISING – SLIDING SCALE RATES • Sliding-scale rates are discount rate structures offered • by newspapers to advertisers willing to purchase a large volume of advertising space over a one-year period. • Split-runs are a printing technique that allows publishers to print differentadvertisements for the same product in alternating copies of the publication. • Preferred position is newspaper/magazine space thought to attract the greatest audience attention. Color requirements in ads increase their cost, as do split-runs and preferred position.

4. OUTDOOR ADVERTISING - VISIBILITY • Higher rates will be charged for outdoor advertising that is placed in areas where it will be highly visible to pedestrians/motorists. • Outdoor advertising is not difficult to replace, is set up to be seen over a period of time, and is often felt to be an eyesore rather than to have artistic appeal.

5. COST EFFICIENCY OF A MEDIA VEHICLE • Cost per thousand measures the cost efficiency of a media vehicle based on the cost of exposing 1,000 people to a promotional message. • To calculate cost per thousand, multiply the cost of the ad by 1,000, then divide by the number of listeners in the audience: CPM = cost of ad x 1,000 (\$500 x 1,000 = \$500,000) ÷ audience of 200,000 (\$500,000 ÷ 200,000 = \$2.50).

6. GROSS RATING POINTS • Gross rating points (GRPs) is the % of people reached by a media vehicle, multiplied by the frequency of exposure to the advertisement. • The cost per GRP is calculated by dividing the total advertising expense by the number of gross rating points (\$117,000 ÷ 240 = \$487.50).

7. DIRECT MAIL • Direct mail is a promotional medium that comes to consumers' homes in the form of letters, catalogs, postcards, and folders. It allows the advertiser to target a specific market. • Newspapers, billboards, and Yellow Pages will not be cost-effective because they will reach many people who may/may not be interested in the advertiser's product(s).

8. RADIO SPOT COMMERCIALS • Radio requires a relatively short lead time for placing ads, and it is considered an effective medium for local and regional markets. • Point-of-purchase displays would reach only those customers who came into the business. A direct-mail campaign must be prepared well in advance and may not be delivered on time.

9. IMPACT OF ADS • Impact is the impression an advertisement will make on the average consumer in a target market. Impact is created by the credibility, prestige, and editorial environment of a media vehicle. • Reach, frequency, and cost per thousand are quantitative factors used in media selection.

10. LOCAL NEWSPAPER • The target market for a local hardware store is adults in the local area. • Network television and a national news magazine also target adults, but the national media provide too much wasted coverage for a local business. The local rock station's audience is generally teenagers, not adults.

11. CONTINUOUS STRATEGY - ADS • Food is a product bought on a regular basis; thus, it needs a continuous scheduling strategy which provides steady, regular advertising. • A flighting strategy would be inappropriate since buying food is not a seasonal activity. Although a pulsing strategy offers regular advertising, it is not steady, but intermittent. I

12. VOLUME DISCOUNTS - ADS • Newspapers frequently offer volume discounts to advertisers who purchase repeated amounts of space for ads. Offering volume discounts encourages advertisers to purchase more ad space because they receive a better price. • Newspapers usually charge flat rates for ads that appear only one time. Advertisers usually pay a higher rate to obtain a preferred position in the newspaper.

13. TV SHOW RATINGS - ADS • Businesses that buy broadcast advertising try to purchase time when a large segment of their target market is watching television. These businesses need information about the ratings for certain shows in order to determine which ones attract a high volume of viewers. • The ratings for each show indicate approx. how many households in the viewing area watched the show on a given day.

14. TV SHOW RATINGS - ADS • Businesses do not need information about the ownership of the stations, the qualifications of management, or the popularity of newscasters in order to purchase advertising time.

15. PACKAGE RATES – RADIO ADS • Radio stations offer reduced rates to advertisers who agree to purchase a series of commercials over a certain period of time. • The package rates cost less than single commercials and provide considerable savings to advertisers. The stations also benefit because they have sold a block of time.

16. PACKAGE RATES – RADIO ADS • Display is a kind of newspaper and magazine advertising which includes several elements such as illustrations, headlines, white space, and type. • Transit is a form of out-of-home media found in various modes and locations of mass transportation.

17. CIRCULATION • Circulation is defined as the number of people reached by a media vehicle. A company with a well-known brand might want to reach as many people as possible. As a result, it places ads in nationally distributed publications instead of local publications. • Motivation is an influence/reason that causes someone to take action.

18. REPUTATION OF PUBLICATION • Reputation often refers to the image/status of an entity. Businesses often consider a publication's reputation when buying advertising; however, a business's reputation does not always indicate details regarding the publication's readership or reach. • For example, it is possible for a magazine to have a good reputation & small reach.

19. REPUTATION OF PUBLICATION • It is also possible for a publishing company to have some negative aspects in terms of overall reputation and still maintain a sizable reach. • Participation is the ability or willingness to take part or share something. A publication's participation in a variety of activities does not necessarily reflect its circulation in terms of size and demographics.

20. PREFERRED POSITION • When requesting preferred positions, advertisers place their ads in the newspaper location that generates optimal exposure for their target market. • For example, an athletic shoe retailer might request placement in the sports sectionof the newspaper instead of the home and garden section. Because the advertiser is requesting a specific placement location, the advertiser pays a higher rate.

21. RUN OF PAGE RATES - ADS Run-of-page rates do not allow advertisers to specify advertisement placement and are generally lower than the preferred-position rate. Contract rates are negotiated rates & are often lower than preferred-position rates. When ads are placed more than once, the advertiser often receives a frequency rate. The higher the frequency of ad placement, the lower the rate.

22. CIRCULATION - REACH • Reach is a quantitative measure of the number of different people in the target audience who are exposed at least once to an advertising message. • Circulation is the number of people reached by a media vehicle. Magazine circulation includes subscription and newsstand sales. .

23. CIRCULATION - REACH • To determine the % of reach for a radio ad, divide the actual # of message exposures (393,750) by the target audience of 18-30 yr.-old-males (875,000) (393,750/875,000 = .45 or 45%) .

24. CIRCULATION - REACH • To determine the percentage of reach for a local cable-television advertisement, divide the actual number of message exposures (313,000) by the target audience of 16- 36-year-old females (939,000) = .33 or 33%). .

25. MOVABLE BILLBOARD • Sport/Event marketers choose the media vehicles that will most effectively reach their target audiences. One vehicle is a movable billboard that drives throughout the area promoting a specific event. • These billboards are large and attract attention. As a result, they have proven to be a good promotional tool because they are seen by a lot of people.

26. MEDIA VEHICLES • Airplane banners are often used to promote OTHER products during an event rather than to promote an upcoming event. • Internet advertising is NOT as effective because people must have access to the Internet in order to see the advertising. • Stadium posters reach ONLY those people who visit the stadium. .

27. MEDIA VEHICLES • The most effective way to reach the public to promote a local event (e.g., charity fundraiser) is by running local television commercials. • Oftentimes, the television station will help sponsor the event by providing low cost or free airtime to run the commercials. The advantage to running local television commercials is they reach a lot of people for a low cost per exposure. .

28. MEDIA VEHICLES • Direct mail is sent to consumers' homes and businesses and is often very expensive. • It is possible that many members of the local target market do not read national newspapers or consumer magazines. .

29. COVER PRE-EVENT EXPENSES • By selling tickets for sport/events in advance (e.g., season ticket holders, groups), sport/event organizations obtain revenues before the sport/event occurs. These revenues can be used to cover expenses such as purchasing supplies, printing costs, and personnel salaries.
