Packaging & Distribution

 

Media Planning

The distribution process begins with developing a media plan that:

  • Establishes a campaign budget
  • Defines target audiences and target markets
  • Allocates the budget by media type
  • Establishes a timeline for implementation

The media plan also provides details on how each different type of media will help accomplish the client's objectives.

Packaging

We are in the midst of a revolution in terms of how PSA campaigns are packaged and distributed to the media. To further complicate things, the way we fulfill these functions depends upon the medium. What we do for broadcast TV is much different than cable or radio, and outdoor is a completely unique medium, which requires special handling from start to finish.

We have various media packaging models, so it is best to contact us so we can apply the best solution for your PSA campaign.

For broadcast TV, our packaging options are very limited to only those documents that can be transmitted to the stations digitally, along with the digital PSA files. This includes a .PDF file that has the storyboard on the front, and our Broadcasters Café newsletter on the reverse, which are sent to the stations with the digital PSA files. To see a sample, go to: PSA Promotion

For radio, we are still using the conventional distribution package, comprised of a Flex Mailer with a hard cover, and a four-color CD with the PSAs on them.

Distribution

Similar to packaging, our distribution plans are different, depending upon the medium, but there are some consistencies in the way we distribute campaigns, which include:

  • We use a “rifle shot” approach to ensure that only previous PSA users are included in our distribution plans based on our “Previous Usage Index”

  • For broadcast TV outlets, we digitally distribute PSAs and post them to our downoad site. To view the site, go to: PSA Digital

  • For radio, we typically target stations that reach our clients’ primary audiences.

  • To target local cable stations, we use our CablePAK™ shared-reel distribution program to reach 500 major cable systems, each of which has 15,000 subscribers or more. To learn more about CablePAK, go to: CablePAK

  • For outdoor, we target by market, by venue, or we use creative solutions to achieve campaign objectives, such as using airport dioramas, posters in subway cars, highway billboards, or in malls. For more detail on how we have placed OOH posters in these venues, go to: Outdoor Presentation, or read the article How to Reach People Where They Live, Work and Play at: Outdoor

  • We have developed very unique tactics designed to engage local community partners in national PSA strategy. To read an article on the subject, go to: How to Engage Community Partners in Your Issue
