It is the highest-rated show of that evening in the adults 18–49 demographic (4.6/10), along with a then series-high 12.83 million viewers.[Wikipedia Out- of- Home advertising, we are advertising in 10 cities in the southwestern US. Using theatre commercials. In 2010 the US movie Market sold 275 million tickets. Movie ads are a great way to share the spotlight. buses and bus stations and billboards.

  • For the trendy target we will play commercials during the MTV series Jersey Shore, The City, and The Hills. Magazine media will be used in communicating to both targets. Cosmo and InStyle for the trendy consumer. Wired for the techy.
  • Where did we get that frequency for facebook from? When I did it I got 200,000 clicks at .50 per click.Product placement in Big Bang Theory. Commercials during The MTV programming throughout the time of the contest. One full page ad in all three magazines for the 3 months. Out-of-home advertisements placed in the 10 cities for the months of the Tinnovation contest. And FaceBook ads targeting our target market during that time as well priced at .50 per click. Gives us $1000 budget per day.
