Your Budget With Your Media Partners • By now, you have your target audience, your media partners in mind. • Determine how much money you will spend in one or multiple outlets. • How much bang for your buck will you get? • Determine the audience retention rate with the help of your media sales representative.
Your Budget With Your Media Partners • Work with your media sales account representative. They want as much return on an audience as you do. • Determine the amount of money you would like to use with each media outlet. Give that number to them up front. They can present a media buy proposal around that amount. Saves everyone time if they know that going in. • It is a win-win for you and them that an audience is reached to its maximum potential.
Your Budget With Your Media Partners • Work with them to determine the best time of day, week or season to build your campaign based on your message objectives you’ve already determined. • In general, a person needs to hear or see a message at least three times in a week to even begin to start to retain it over the course of a period of time. Each media outlet may have their own statistic on message retention.
Your Budget With Your Media Partners • Sample budget from a print media outlet: The Cincinnati Enquirer
The Message Outcome 1: Your promotional message reaches your intended and targeted audience. Outcome 2: Your message is understood by your audience. Outcome 3: Your message stimulates the recipients and they take action. • Three outcomes you want to aim for with your media objectives. • You can conduct informal focus groups to test the media message before you begin the media campaign to make sure it resonates.
The Message • Is your message clear and succinct? You can test it with focus groups. • Does it have a call to action? • Call to Action Examples: Join your group, becoming involved in project, visit your website, call/email for more information, retweet a Tweet or repost a Facebook post, or text to find out more information.
Guiding Questions for Messaging Messaging: • What is the problem? What stereotypes are associated with this problem? • What institution or individuals are responsible for this problem? • What’s your vision and solution? • What action do you want your target audience to take? • What will happen if they don’t take this action? What’s at stake? Source: “Center for Media Justice”
