Week 8: Introduction and learning objectives:

Over the last two weeks we explored the various types of media so that this week’s focus on Media Planning is where we apply this knowledge in recommending a media strategy for our clients. What do we need to consider when developing our media strategy and how do we find a balance between various media objectives – reach, frequency, impact – when our budget is limited?
