Media Planning & Buying – How It Works

The procedure of choosing the optimal combination of media outlets for advertising or marketing message is called media planning. It often includes research, identification, analysis, planning, comparison, and working for a brand’s budget. Media planning is the procedure with the help of which marketers decide where and how frequently they would run an ad to maximize commitments. The media plan could divide advertising costs and resources between online and offline channels like print, paid ads, etc.

The complementary procedure by which a person or organization takes the insights derived from the media planner and start finding and negotiating regarding purchasing advertisement space around the planned media channels. This is known as media buying. This could be done manually or automated based on preference, objectives, budget, etc.

In the present competitive advertising scene, advertisers need to serve purchasers with the correct message, at the ideal time, on the correct channel to see commitment. Media planning is the place advertisers figure out what these rights are.

A successful media plan will bring about a lot of publicizing opportunities that focus on a particular crowd and fit in with the association’s advertising financial plan. While setting up a media plan, advertisers will regularly factor in the following things:

  • To whom should the advertisement reach?
  • About the marketing budget?
  • How do you describe success?
  • The goal of the message.
  • Reach of the message to the audience.

Media planners at advertising organizations are responsible for media planning. These planners should work with media buyers and the client-agency to build up a plan so as to maximize ROI on media budget. Media planners should have an understanding of the agency’s brand and planned audience and different media platforms.
