See Your Business in The World: The Importance of Media Buying

From the beginning of time, people have advertised their products and services. It began with word-of-mouth and simple hand-created ads. But instead of simple tactics that were effective a few hundred years ago, marketing today has evolved into a more complicated system. Now, advertisements can be on dozens of platforms. But how do you get your advertisements to appear on the television, radio, or billboards? That’s media buying—something we specialize in at Media Venue.

What is Media Buying?

Media buying refers to the practice of buying advertisement slots on all media platforms. When businesses get their advertisements on television, radio, or pop-up banner ads online, they had to purchase that media space through this process. For example, if the local tv-station had an unfilled 30-second commercial spot, this slot would become available for purchase for an advertisement. Its name itself explains what it is- media buying is simply buying media time and space.

Businesses’ can purchase advertisement space and time can on both digital and traditional platforms. Examples of advertisements spaces that are commonly bought are:

  • Television advertisements
  • Radio advertisements
  • Newspaper advertisements 
  • Magazine advertisements 
  • Billboards 
  • Social media advertisements 
  • Mobile advertisements 
  • Display advertisements
