  23. 23. The Media-Planning Process 4. Buying media 1. Selecting the target audience 2. Specifying media objectives 3. Selecting media categories and vehicles
  24. 24. Selecting the Target Audience <ul><li>Four major factors </li></ul>(1) Buyographics (4) Lifestyle/psychographics (2) Geographic (3) Demographic
  25. 25. Specifying Media Objectives <ul><li>What proportion of the population should be reached with advertising message during specified period (reach) </li></ul><ul><li>How frequently should audience be exposed to message during this period (frequency) </li></ul><ul><li>How much total advertising is needed to accomplish reach and frequency objectives (weight) </li></ul>
  26. 26. Specifying Media Objectives <ul><li>How should the advertising budget be allocated over time (continuity) </li></ul><ul><li>How close to the time of purchase should the target audience be exposed to the advertising message (recency) </li></ul><ul><li>What is the most economically justifiable way to accomplish objectives (cost) </li></ul>
  27. 27. Reach <ul><li>Percentage of target audience that is </li></ul><ul><li>exposed to an advertisement, at least </li></ul><ul><li>once, during a certain time frame </li></ul><ul><li>(usually four weeks) </li></ul>
  28. 28. Reach <ul><li>Reach represents the percentage of target customers who have an opportunity to see the advertisers message. </li></ul><ul><li>Other terms used by Media Planners to describe reach: </li></ul><ul><li>1+ (read “one-plus”) </li></ul><ul><li>net coverage </li></ul><ul><li>unduplicated audience </li></ul><ul><li>cumulative audience ( or “cume”) </li></ul>
  29. 29. Factors Determining the Reach <ul><li>More people are reached when a media schedule uses multiple media </li></ul><ul><li>The number and diversity of media vehicles used </li></ul><ul><li>By diversifying the day parts </li></ul>
  30. 30. Frequency <ul><li>Average number of times </li></ul><ul><li>an advertisement reaches </li></ul><ul><li>the target audience in a </li></ul><ul><li>four-week period </li></ul>
  31. 31. Market Factors/Frequency Levels <ul><li>Brand History New High </li></ul><ul><li>Brand Share High Low </li></ul><ul><li>Brand Loyalty High Low </li></ul><ul><li>Purchase Cycle Short High </li></ul><ul><li>Usage Cycle Short High </li></ul><ul><li>Share of Voice High High </li></ul>Market Factor Type Frequency
  32. 32. Message Creative Factors/Frequency Levels <ul><li>Message Complexity Simple Low </li></ul><ul><li>Message Uniqueness Unique Low </li></ul><ul><li>Newness New High </li></ul><ul><li>Image Factors Image High </li></ul><ul><li>Message variation Little Low </li></ul>Message/Creative Factor Type Frequency

  34. 34. Weight <ul><li>How much advertising volume is required to accomplish advertising objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Three weight metrics: </li></ul><ul><li>Gross ratings </li></ul><ul><li>Target ratings </li></ul><ul><li>Effective ratings </li></ul>
  35. 35. Weight <ul><li>Gross rating points, or GRPs, are </li></ul><ul><li>an indicator of the amount of gross </li></ul><ul><li>weight that a particular advertising </li></ul><ul><li>schedule is capable of delivering </li></ul><ul><li>GRPs=Reach(R) X Frequency(F) </li></ul>
  36. 36. Determining GRPs in Practice <ul><li>GRPs are the sum of all vehicle ratings in a media schedule </li></ul><ul><li>Rating: proportion of the target audience presumed to be exposed to a single occurrence of an advertising vehicle in which the advertiser’s brand is advertised </li></ul>
  37. 37. Determining GRPs in Practice <ul><li>100 GRPs could mean: </li></ul><ul><li>100 % exposed once </li></ul><ul><li> 50 % exposed twice </li></ul><ul><li>25% exposed four times </li></ul><ul><li>etc. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Weight <ul><li>Target Rating Points (TRPs) </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust a vehicle’s rating to reflect just those individuals who match the advertiser’s target audience </li></ul>
  39. 39. Weight <ul><li>Effective Rating Points (ERPs) </li></ul><ul><li>Effective reach </li></ul><ul><li>Effective frequency </li></ul>
  40. 40. The Concept of ERPs <ul><li>How often the target audience have an opportunity to be exposed? </li></ul><ul><li>Effective reach is based on the idea that an advertising schedule is effective only if it does not reach members of target audience too few or too many times </li></ul>
  41. 41. How Many Exposures are Needed? <ul><li>Three-Exposure Hypothesis </li></ul><ul><li>The minimum number of exposures </li></ul><ul><li>needed for advertising to be effective </li></ul><ul><li>is three </li></ul>
  42. 42. How Many Exposures are Needed? <ul><li>The Efficiency-Index Procedure </li></ul><ul><li>Media schedule that generates the </li></ul><ul><li>most exposure value per GRP </li></ul>
  43. 43. Efficiency Index Procedure Exposure Value Exposure Distribution Total Exposure Value Index of Exposure Efficiency
  44. 44. Effective Reach in Advertising Practice <ul><li>3-10 exposures during a media-planning period (typically 4 weeks) </li></ul><ul><li>Using multiple media </li></ul><ul><li>Subjective factors must be considered </li></ul>
  45. 45. Continuity <ul><li>How advertising is allocated during </li></ul><ul><li>the course of an advertising </li></ul><ul><li>campaign : how should the media </li></ul><ul><li>budget be distributed? </li></ul>
  46. 46. Continuity <ul><li>Continuous schedule </li></ul><ul><li>Pulsing </li></ul><ul><li>Flighting </li></ul>
  47. 47. Continuous, Pulsing, and Flighting Schedules 0 200 400 600 J F M A M J J A S O N D Continuous Pulsing Flighting Advertising Schedules Ad $ (in thousands) (months)
  48. 48. Recency Planning <ul><li>Consumers’ first exposure to an advertisement is the most powerful </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising primary role is to influence brand choice </li></ul><ul><li>(2) Achieving a high level of weekly reach for a brand should be emphasized over acquiring heavy frequency </li></ul>
  49. 49. Optimizing Weekly Reach <ul><li>Advertising teaches consumers </li></ul><ul><li>Influence brand selection </li></ul><ul><li>Messages are most effective when close to </li></ul><ul><li>purchase time </li></ul><ul><li>Cost-Effectiveness of first exposure is greater </li></ul><ul><li>than subsequent </li></ul><ul><li>Allocate budget to reach consumers often </li></ul><ul><li>Reach target audience continuously rather than sporadically </li></ul>
  50. 50. Toward Reconciliation <ul><li>Illustration of </li></ul><ul><li>advertising’s </li></ul><ul><li>“ Chance Encounter” </li></ul><ul><li>and the value of </li></ul><ul><li>achieving reach </li></ul>
  51. 51. Cost Considerations <ul><li>The cost of reaching 1,000 members of </li></ul><ul><li>the target audience, excluding those </li></ul><ul><li>people who fall outside the target market </li></ul>
  52. 52. Cost considerations Cost per Thousand (CPM) Target Market (TM) CPM= Cost of ad # of contacts (expressed in thousands) CPM-TM= Cost of ad # of TM contacts (expressed in thousands)
  53. 53. Cost Considerations <ul><li>Measures of cost efficiency, not of effectiveness </li></ul><ul><li>Lack of comparability across media </li></ul><ul><li>Misused unless vehicles within a particular medium are compared on the same basis </li></ul>
  54. 54. Tradeoffs <ul><li>Tradeoff must be made because media planners operate under the constraint of fixed advertising budget </li></ul>
