Full Costing Document for the entire Promotional Package

I completely forgot about the full costing document completed for promotional package. The following word document presents this cost estimation, as well as a description of some lump sum figures required for advertising space, such as radio air time and social media advertising through Twitter.

Progress during week off

The following work was completed this week:

  1. Two magazine ads (and an alternative to the second magazine ad)
  2. A storyboard and script for the final YouTube video. The video will a TrueView In-stream video, meaning it can be between 30-60 seconds, and you will only pay if users decide to watch it beyond 30 seconds. This is the type of video that can be skipped after 5 seconds.

Below are images of the magazine ads:

Coursework Progress: Week 21

This week the following three elements have been completed for the project:

1. Promotional lamp-post posters (4 in total):

Poster Ad

2. The radio advert has been finalised:

3. The social media plan has been finalised:

Social Networking Plan

For the social media plan estimated budget, the following websites have been researched in order to understand the pricing of advertising online a little better:

Twitter (2013), Promoted Accounts [online]. https://business.twitter.com/products/promoted-accounts-full-service. [Accessed: 02 April 2013].
Website used to understand Twitter’s own policy on how a company can promote themselves on Twitter.

Francis, A. (2012). Twitter advertising – is it worth the high costs?. IonSearch.co.uk [online]. 16 September 2012. Available from: http://www.ionsearch.co.uk/twitter-advertising-is-it-worth-the-high-costs. [Accessed: 02 April 2013].
Website researched to understand further the pricing of using Twitter promoted accounts, as the exact pricing was not listed on the Twitter website.

YouTube (2013), Pre-Roll Ads [online]. http://www.youtube.com/yt/advertise/en-GB/in-stream.html. [Accessed: 02 April 2013].
YouTube describe pre-roll ads and how they work. This page also gives good tips on how to make a successful advertisement video.  

Alleger, J. (2012). How much do ads on YouTube cost? [online]. 7 August 2012. Available from: http://ppbh.com/how-much-do-ads-on-youtube-cost/. [Accessed: 02 April 2013].
The YouTube website did not give detailed information on the actual cost per view, therefore this site was used as reference. Although cost per view can vary, and companies can enter bids, the pricing and information on this website seems more viable.

Marketing Campaign: Progress Post

The work completed currently includes collection of images for the billboard posters. After driving down Sheikh Zayed road, it has been decided to create 4 posters. There seems to be a few “lamp-post” posters presented in this way. They work effectively as the viewer doesn’t only drive past one, but several, thus have a greater chance of getting caught by what the ad is about. According to the Out There Group (2013), the possible sizes for lamp-post ads are 3m x 2m and 4m x 2m.

As with the radio ad that is being created, I currently have an issue creating music energetic enough to fit a morning advertisement about colour and brightness. This should be done by the end of the weekend.

Work completed this week includes business-cards, stationery and a shopping bag (large) for the company “Cuisinier”: producers of the gofresh Juicer.

Research on Billboard and Magazine Ads

Full research on Billboard/Magazine ads:

Week 18 – Research on Billboards and Magazine Ads

 

SUMMARY:

Hedges et al (1998) noted some important things to keep in mind when making a magazine ad: “communication through pictures and not words; brevity in verbal messages; attention to the total gestalt and not merely the detailed parts; clear use of logos, symbols and other coded signals; continuity of theme.” Readers can return to the ad, but as they can also browse quickly past it, it needs to be catchy. Less story-telling than in TV ads (Costerdine, 2000, p4).

Billboard ads need to have pictures not text. Preferably six words or less. Billboards are not the time for direct response (phone, email, website) as your audience are drivers, unable to write things down. They are secondary ads, helping to build brand awareness; primary ads are TV, etc (Suggett, 2013).

Based on this research, I would like my poster to be a billboard poster. It also fits well with my audience as they are all working, and at that age all driving to work. Further to the poster, a radio ad may be valuable, to be played on the radio in the morning rush hour. I will write more next week about this.
