The most important thing to know when starting a Media plan is to always know that Advertising is not an expense. Advertising is an investment which will benefit you and broaden your customers. If there are any doubts about your advertising not increase your sales more than the cost of the advertising cost.

The next important thing to do is know what you are selling and how you will interest your customers. There is no point spending hundreds of thousands of dollars if the advertisements are not appealing to the customer. This is why monitoring each step can really benefit the media plan.

Planning and research is the best thing to do when figuring out which medias are better for your business. Put up subtle surveys which ask which media was most appealing to the customers.


The different Media which I would choose are TV, Radio, Newspaper/ magazine, Internet and Event/Brochures. This is because all of these methods of Media have high enough Cost Vs Reach.

These media are the best and most popular choices compared to the many other options. Other media can bring inconvenience to people and cause people to have a negative image of them such as direct mailing. These mails are a waste of paper and people are never willing to read these. That is why they are called “Junk Mail”.

These five media options also have the highest number of responses. This means that these 5 medias will make people respond to the advertising more than the other media options.

Different Products and Services have their own dominant media preference. Such as food recipes and restaurants are heavily invested in the Magazine media. There are many fishing programs on the television during weekends and mid day such as ET fishing, however you won’t find many magazines or events about a new product being released into the fishing market. This is because people have their media preferences about existing products and where they are more likely to read about them.

The media preference is also very dependent on the target market. For example if the product’s target market is for younger people such as video games, it is not a good choice to choose Newspaper media because not many teenagers read the newspapers every day.


Budget for a Month


The total amount of money spent on advertising is $6.36 million a year or $530,000 a month. This may seem like a lot however compared to the amount of revenue Samsung receives each year, this amount is less than 1 percent of the sales. Also comparing to the competitor of Samsung, Apple is spending a very large amount more on advertising.

The vice president of World Wide marketing recently announced that in 2011, Apple budgeted about $900 million for the entire year. However this was also less than 1 percent of their sales. Budgeting a advertising plan is an important part. As said before, Advertising is not an expense. It is not forced upon the business however, it benefits your company. It is an investment, and all investments are very important.
