  10. 10. 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 See MFP page 37 for Ostrow Model questions
