Media Plan Synergy

Posted by Drew Conklin on Wed, Jun 7, 2017 @ 09:06 AM

Having begun working in the agency world back when Digital was not even a "thing" yet, I can honestly say I've been doing this a long time and seen a ton of change to the media landscape. However, at the end of the day the planning process and how we go about it hasn't changed much.

Benefits of Traditional Media: Print

Posted by Scott Christopher on Wed, May 24, 2017 @ 10:05 AM

We've been doing a series on the benefits of traditional media on the blog. You can catch up on earlier posts here and here. Why are we writing this? Because we are Luddites stuck in the dark ages, denying the existence of the internet? Not at all. It is because we are huge believers in media mix. No marketer should put all their eggs in one media channel basket. And with all the benefits that come through digital advertising - like trackability and measuring ROI - it also has its limitations and isn't the most trusted advertising medium. Yes, traditional channels still have value to reach your audience and enhance a digital advertising campaign. They all work together.

What Do You Do For a Living?

Posted by Drew Conklin on Fri, Apr 15, 2016 @ 12:04 PM

When I meet new people, the question always comes up, "What do you do for a living?" It's like in college when you first meet someone and you always ask, "what's your major?" I guess it is just human nature for us to just be curious about what other people do.

Cannes' Best Print Campaigns: Who Deserved It and Who Didn't

After the Cannes Lions Festival ended last week, I reviewed the “World’s 17 Best Print Campaigns of 2013-14” according to the Grand Prix and Gold Lion award winners in the Press Lions category. In my opinion, there were some ads that were really incredible and some that weren’t so deserving of the prestigious award.

June Good Media Idea: Magazine bellybands

Posted by Scott Christopher on Tue, Jun 10, 2014 @ 11:06 AM

This month we are featuring a print good media idea that we have found to be very effective for our B2B advertisers. When we begin working on the media plan for our B2B clients, we are always looking for impactful units that will make our client stand out. Often, many B2B industries are still very entrenched in print media - their audiences still prefer the tactile experience of flipping through a magazine or keeping it on their shelf or truck dashboard for quick reference. Such is the case with our client in the construction and roadway industry, Tensar International. We always consider the media consumption habits of the target audience before formulating a media plan.

Good Media Idea: Nivea reimagines print ad

Posted by Scott Christopher on Mon, Sep 16, 2013 @ 10:09 AM

Here at McCulloch+Company, we love innovative new media ideas - but not just ideas that are innovative and creative for their own sakes, but rather ideas that further a brand's message. It's even better if the ad solves a problem your consumer has that then further enables them to use your product.
