Media Research & Planning: Many clients place significant emphasis on the creative aspect of their sales message. However, no matter how creative a message is, it will be ineffective if not placed within the correct medium or media mix which targets potential consumers. To ensure that your message is being seen in the right place, at the right time and at the right cost, Northeast Pennsylvania Business Center provides complete and comprehensive media services, including research, planning, buying and placement across all media outlets.
When beginning with a new client, Northeast Pennsylvania Business Center’s first step is to discuss your goals with you and fill out a media questionnaire. This questionnaire helps establish historical advertising efforts, target audience, geography, seasonality, promotional events, etc. Once this is completed, we can begin the planning and research process to develop the most effective media plan to achieve the goals set by you.
Northeast Pennsylvania Business Center performs extensive research to determine the most effective media mix based upon the client’s marketing goals and designated budget. Possible media outlets are analyzed based upon criteria that might include:
- The medium’s effectiveness in reaching the potential consumer, based upon composition and coverage of the designated target audience
- The editorial environment and its appropriateness for the client
- The competitive advertising environment
Media Buying Process: Northeast Pennsylvania Business Center will issue media budget estimates for your approval and execute the media buy. Media Strategists at Northeast Pennsylvania Business Center have achieved strong negotiation skills which enable our clients to take advantage of low rates and accompanying merchandising packages.
