Last week we had a new client call us and ask for media rates and a test campaign while comparing us to another “marketing company.” Folks – beware of any company that does not give you the rate for each spot and just gives you impressions or general information. We have seen this lately with fly by night firms offering thousands of spots as part of a “media blitz” and millions of impressions as part of the package deal for the TV Production. Professional DRTV Media Buyers and Direct Response TV Agencies show the rates and those rates are supported by invoices and affadavits from the stations with the exact same rate. We researched the so called media blitz and were able to determine that the client was paying a CPM over $28, which is more than Amercican Idol or Dancing With The Stars cost on a CPM basis. DRTV rates need to be very low to pay out. We created a plan for that client with a CPM of $0.52 and national coverage using our vast media relationships.
