The internet is providing paid TV-like advertising opportunities. Most of the companies that are buying paid TV-like advertising online are buying in blocks of a three month period. Many companies are analyzing how the benefits of this type of advertising have an added advantage in reaching, as well as tracking, a wider audience.
The diversification of paid TV-like internet advertising not only includes banner advertising, but e-mail newsletters, ads that are targeted by the web page content, text ads, and regional ads (which include direct targeting of a company’s marketing territories, i.e. cities, states).
Companies that are buying paid TV-like online advertising do not have the hassle of negotiating with search engine companies if they opt to use an agency that will provide that service for them. It becomes the advertisers’ job to negotiate the best placement of the client’s ads. It is also the responsibility of the advertiser to provide their client with projected visitor counts.
There are so many nuts and bolts that comprise the area of paid TV-like online advertising that it is best to contract with an advertising service because of their expertise.
There are advantages to buying online media advertising rather than traditional television ads. Because of the popularity of chat rooms, e-mail, and every day web searching, the internet has the capability of reaching a very wide audience that is performing more than one function at a time, unlike traditional TV viewing. The ability for an advertisement to appear while the user is performing other internet functions is a vastly different marketing technique in comparison to interruptive television commercials.
Online media advertising has increased sales as well as branding awareness.
Some paid TV online marketing companies have options whereby their client can place ads in exchange for a percentage of any sales resulting from the advertising. This feature is a selling point that traditional paid TV ads do not offer.
Companies offering search engine marketing as part of online media buying also handle the aspect of creating and optimizing their clients meta tags and manage their clients “cost per click” marketing campaigns. In addition, some companies are offering blogging as part of an online media campaign.
Key Advantages of Paid TV Online Media Buying
The companies that sell the marketing of online advertising have the advantage of tracking the information gathered as a result of internet user behavior. Ad agencies deliver a marketing analysis as well as any recommendations with regards to any changes needed in an online marketing strategy. It is also easy to swap out ad ads, unlike TV advertising takes considerable production time.
