Article | April 8, 2020

Vermont’s senior U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders today ended his campaign for the presidency, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden as the presumptive Democratic Party nominee set to take on President Trump. Biden swept Florida, Illinois and Arizona in Tuesday's primary voting. According to the latest Ad Age Campaign Ad Scorecard analysis, led by Ad Age Datacenter Director of Data Management Kevin Brown in partnership with Kantar/CMAG, Sanders spent just over $76 million on advertising in pursuit of the presidency from the start of his campaign through April 7, including advance spending—although Sanders and Biden had both drastically curtailed ad spending in recent weeks as the coronavirus pandemic escalated. Sanders’ spending, as tracked by Ad Age Datacenter, includes TV, radio, cable and digital across Facebook and Google properties.

Digital Billboard Brand Marketing Budget & Strategy

Article | April 6, 2020

Starting first with the budget: What do you want to invest on a daily basis in your brand? My recommendation here in a local area is going to be $20 per day per brand channel. So what that means is, if you want to be on a digital billboard on a highway, that’s $20. If you want to be on Facebook for the day, that’s $20. On Instagram is $20. If you want to be on YouTube, that’s another $20. And so you can quickly get to where your budget is roughly anywhere from $60 to $100 a day, whether you’re on anywhere three to five different channels. I definitely recommend multi-channel, that’s going to build trust. Because if somebody sees you in all these different places, every time they see you, it’s just another element of trust (which would avoid questions like: “Is dropshipping legal?” or “Is dropshipping dead?”). You’re covering all areas. Digital billboards on the highway are extremely powerful because it makes you instantly think, like this business is on a little bit higher level than the other businesses.
