Amy Gable, advanced advertising manager for Viamedia, had been trying to convince her ophthalmologist client to spend more money with her cable station. The client, a traditional advertiser, was used to doing the “same thing every year.” They had been spending approximately $200 each month on a couple of Viamedia’s networks.
“The majority of ad budgets typically go to local broadcast,” Gable said. “A lot of the time cable gets the leftovers.”
Gable read an article in the AdMall Minute about ophthalmologists, which contained information on industry trends and other important research. She shared the article with the client’s media buyer and other contacts at the ophthalmologist’s in-house agency.
The client appreciated the information Gable shared with them. They signed up with Viamedia for two years in a row – increasing their annual spending from $2,400 to $12,000. They plan to run more spots on various networks during the campaign.
“Most of their business with me was month-to-month,” Gable added. “She saw that I had brought her a good resource; which was why they increased their spending.”
Gable reads the AdMall Minute first thing every day to stay on top of trends. “It’s surprising how much you can learn from it. You have that information in your back pocket, and are ready to use it when the opportunity arises.”
