Radio and Total Recall


Want to reach your target audience and get better response? Plan on using internet platforms in conjunction to traditional radio.

The Radio Advertising Bureau released a new white paper on the multiplying effect of using radio with digital media which found that:

  • Ad recall improves dramatically when digital and radio are used together

  • There is increased brand preference and purchase behavior

  • Visits to brand websites are increased

While marketing dollars increasingly go toward new media, this white paper shows that adding internet radio and broadcast radio to the plan brings greater response. http://bit.ly/RdoTEn

Local Marketing Wins Greater ROI


National marketing may cut a high profile, but local market gets greater results. A majority (88%) of national brands allocate some budget to local markets. However, these brands expect a greater return on investment (ROI) on local dollars than national dollars.

Over half (63%) expected a 1.5 to 3 times return on their local advertising investment. Local marketing automation provider Balihoo studied what national brands are expecting from local market investments.

All Eyes On Online Video


Advertisers are paying attention and dollars to online video. eMarketer predicts that 71% of U.S. internet users will watch online video monthly by December 2012.

Pre-roll advertising (a video advertisement that plays before an online video you chose to watch) is a favorite format for online advertising. Banner ads are still important, but increasingly, revenue dollars are being funneled to pre-roll advertising.

Over half (63%) of ad agency decision-makers plan on placing pre-roll ads this year.

Mail Superhero


The United States Postal Service (USPS) has a new hero that might just help them get out of their budget woes. That cape wearing super hero is direct mail.

Outside sources cite that mail currently captures 12% of media advertising money. The USPS offers a new service called "Every Door Direct Mail" that allows marketers to send out mailings without specific names or addresses. With this new program, marketers can target specific geographic areas at a cost of 14.2 cents for each mail piece.

We sample, we nibble around the edges on content. There's even a Sunday morning business show that hypes the "elevator pitch". These bites can engage consumers, so that they come back for seconds.

Glenn Engler thinks that snack-sized content is the way to make the consumer hungry for your product in this Marketing Prof article http://bit.ly/qRqskL
