Deciding Factors for choosing the Media Platform

The first and foremost factor that drives the selection of the media platform is the audience, their distribution, type and preferences. Every demographic detail brings you closer to your target audience, helping you plan your campaign better and driving better results. For instance, advertising jewellery or boutiques in a posh region like Kumara Park, Sadashiv nagar, Richmond Circle or Indiranagar in Bengaluru have higher chances of acquiring attention as well as clients than advertising in Chikpet or Chamrapet. The type of audience residing in a particular locality helps you make your target space much more focussed.

Another factor that drives the choice of the advertising media is literacy rate of a region as it gives you factual figure as to how many people can read or comprehend other languages apart from Kannad. Financially well off audiences, even the educated working population constitute a large section of the target audience when you intend to reach out through newspapers or the Internet. In case you intend to reach out to a less educated or illiterate population, then, probably radio would be the best option.

The last but not the least deciding factor is Money. Your advertising budget must be well calculated and planned to ensure that you get maximum results with minimum investments since it is not always possible for all advertisers to shell out loads of money for ad campaigns.
