1 Media-Mix & The Natural Laws of Advertising

2 One Iron Law of Advertising Ad dollars follow consumers. Ad dollars follow consumers. Often this Iron Law works sluggishly. Often this Iron Law works sluggishly. Ten years ago, few consumers used the online medium. Ten years ago, few consumers used the online medium. Today consumers spend more time online than reading newspapers or magazines. Today consumers spend more time online than reading newspapers or magazines. But, although the fastest growing medium, online still receives fewer dollars than newspapers or magazines (about half in 2007, according to TNS).

3 Medias Natural Laws Herschel discovered Celestial Mechanics; Newton the Laws of Gravity. Herschel discovered Celestial Mechanics; Newton the Laws of Gravity. We are just discovering Medias own natural Laws. We are just discovering Medias own natural Laws. Recency, Optimizers and Marketing-Mix Modeling all give the same advice: adding too much of anything in media brings lessened response.

This phenomenon is called diminishing marginal utility and affects everything that is done in planning.

The sales effectiveness of a medium relates almost inversely to its share of the ad budget.* The sales effectiveness of a medium relates almost inversely to its share of the ad budget.* The more dollars spent, the less response per dollar. The more dollars spent, the less response per dollar. This is why any single medium alone cannot produce the most cost-effective media plan, and its why Media Mix is at the top of every media planners list.

6 Media Response Curve As dollars increase, the curve starts to flatten until the last dollars produce very little added response.

After a certain reach point, each additional media dollar achieves less consumer response and builds reach at a much slower, and costlier rate Magazines Internet 2. When the reach of one medium starts to flatten in relation to the dollar investment, an effective campaign incorporates another medium, building reach in a cost efficient manner CPM vs. Cost Per Incremental Reach Point
