Determining reach & frequency goals

  1. 1. DETERMINING REACH& FREQUENCY GOALS
  2. 2. Determining Reach & Frequency Goals• How much reach is enough?• Reach follows a curve that flattens as GRPs increase.• Highest Reach – 99%• Moderate Reach – 70% to 75%• Lowest Reach – 50% to 60% • 50% is minimum for brand survival • Use flighting schedule to achieve a higher reach over a shorter period of time – avoid dilution of the media plan
  3. 3. Determining Reach & Frequency Goals• How much frequency is enough?• Once reach begins to plateau, frequency continues to increase.• Highest Average Frequency – 12 • Depending on creative, can run the risk of “wearout”• Lowest Average Frequency – 2 to 3 • Minimum frequency• Ostrow Model – used to estimate effective frequency • Marketing Factors • Copy Factors • Media Factors
  4. 4. Ostrow Model• Begin with 3.0 frequency• Use questions in the model to determine a score to add or subtract from the benchmark• Factors that increase frequency • New brand, low market share, complex copy, pulsed/flighted campaign, higher ad clutter in media mix• Factors that decrease frequency • Established brand, high brand loyalty, simple copy, continuous media schedule
