project?

 

AL: $45,000

 

DJ: Great. With that budget, I suggest

 

sticking to print media.

 


 

AL: I've done a bit of research and think

 

we can put together a short commercial

 

for $2,000 and air it late night for less

 

than $10,000. I think that will work as

 

our target audience are unemployed

 

people. We can use the rest for print

 

media.

 

DJ: And how much will it cost to develop

 

the print ad?

 

AL: Less than $1,000.

 

DJ: That will leave a lot left over for

 

placement in newspapers.

 

AL: I've decided to place the ads in the

 

employment section, which is a bit more

 

expensive, but with our budget, we can

 

afford it and I believe it will prove the

 

most bang for the buck.

Project: Stanley Carpet Company

 

DJ: Hey Sammy, where are we at with

 

the Stanley project?

 

SR: We were debating on the budget. I

 

think we can get away with under

 

$20,000.

 

DJ: Isn't this the project that we wanted

 

to do both print and television

 

advertising within a short blitz?

 

SR: Yes, I think we can pull that off for

 

under $20,000.

 

DJ: I'm uncomfortable with that number.

 

Let's bump it up to $25,000 with $2,000

 

for commercial development, $500 for

 

print ads and what's left for placement.

 

SR: Okay, we'll use $15,000 for television

 

commercial placement because we need

 

the commercial running in prime time

 

and the remaining $7,500 for print

 

placement.

 


 

DJ: Use the bulk of that $7,500, say

 

$4,500 for magazine and $3,000 for

 

newspaper.
