TEC’s Radio Plan Delivers More Media for 50% Less Budget! Our client, a leading artist management firm set aside a substantial end-of-year radio budget to “give back” to stations that supported their artists throughout 2009. The client wanted to run in 39 markets over a nine day flight and had already rec’d a traditional plan for a competitor that offered three units per day in each market (or 1,053 units). It utilized :60 spots. Using the same markets, stations and flight, TEC designed a plan that delivered an astounding 287% more units (or 3,021 :60 units). Our plan also quadrupled the number of units per day in 18 markets, vs. the competitors plan. We executed this plan for less than half of the client’s original budget!

Online Case Study HBO- Justin Timberlake: FUTURESEX/LOVESHOW Live Concert The objective was to drive tune-in awareness for Justin Timberlake's live concert on HBO, while generating new cable subscriptions and sweepstakes opt-ins. The challenge was that there were several goals we needed to satisfy within a very short period (7 days). While we were creating audience buzz for the live event, we needed to also drive them to a sweepstakes contest and give them the opportunity to sign up for HBO if they did not already have it. We had to appeal to hardcore fans of Justin Timberlake as well as HBO viewers to create a comprehensive and efficient outreach. Using a blend of entertainment sites reaching a wide female audience (W18-34), and weighting impressions within music categories and fan forums we were able to able to find core audience. In addition, we ran ad units on Sony artists websites whose fans mirrored those of Justin Timberlake. In doing so we appealed to his fans when they were not on his site or listening to his music. Last, we employed an dedicated blog targeted social media effort to reach people writing about Justin Timberlake or sharing his music. By involving our messaging and providing them with an opportunity to enter a sweepstakes, we added value to their content and extended the reach of our advertising. Using a multi-layered audience targeting approach we ensured that each objective was reached in a very efficient and strategic manner. Each objective was achieved successfully and within short time. We over delivered on campaign impressions by 20%, increased traffic to HBO's subscriber section and converted sweepstakes entries at great levels.
