when you decide invest in integrated media and digital advertising, there are some common mistakes we help you avoid.
Having no clear measurable goals: It's critical to acquire the data I discussed previously in order to pinpoint precisely who you want your ads to reach before investing in any media. What are their dietary habits and the best channels to reach them with your message? However, setting quantifiable goals may be much more crucial. How many campaigns have you started without a defined strategy for how you'll evaluate their success?
Not spending appropriately on testing: Budget-consciousness and cash-strappedness are typical traits of small firms, which is generally acceptable. It's crucial to include testing in your media budget, though. You could consider this to be a needless investment, but investing a little now could wind up saving you a lot later.
Not diversifying your media spending: It's crucial that you diversify your media spending when it comes to campaign preparation. You can cast a wider net to catch more potential fish if you do this. To be safe and wise, spread out your investment (80% digital - 20% newspapers and OOH) and monitor the outcomes so you can fine-tune your strategy and more effectively target the most fruitful channels and areas.
Not looking at the big picture: You'll naturally want to examine your spending as your campaign develops and the results start to come in to see where you can make savings. Having said that, it's crucial to consider the overall situation rather than just the most recent events. Remember that media reactions are unpredictable because if they were, life would be way too simple.
Stopping before really getting started: The effectiveness of your campaign should be assessed by evaluating frequency. Otherwise, you risk ending a campaign just when it was about to take off and move forward seriously. You can be sure to notice the signs that let you know that things are going well by studying frequency.
