Media Buying 101

Having fantastic content is only half the battle when it comes to digital marketing. Even if you have the perfect commercial, that content will mean nothing if it’s seen by no one. This is why Adrenaline Broadcasting has a comprehensive team of media-buying professionals to get your content seen by the most amount of people possible.

For those that aren’t in the loop: “media buying” is a self-descriptive term for the purchasing of a share of media (advertising space) from a publication, website, event, outdoor site, social media page, or TV channel. This is one of the core aspects of a successful marketing campaign; when done right, media buying can exponentially increase the brand awareness and conversion rate of your company.

Media Buyers

A media buyer’s job is simple: negotiate the best rates for optimal placement of content from a media owner. The media owner could be an Instagram influencer, a local or national TV channel, a website owner, or an affiliate advertiser that works with multiple publications. Depending on the event or the website, the cost can range from hundreds of dollars to millions of dollars. For example, an NBC Sports ad executive says that a 30-second spot for the Super Bowl costs upwards of $5 million. This means that a company like Budweiser assumes an even greater return than $5 million for that media buy due to the high exposure of said advertisement. High exposure almost always translates to high conversions.
