If your advert is relevant to the reader it can be kept and used as a future reference. At Creation we have vast experience in press advertising and can offer independent advice and deliver final campaigns.
Radio is an interest and intrusive medium. You can reach listeners all day long. Radio can play an interesting part in your overall strategy as it has the ability to create mass awareness of your company. Radio advertising is all about frequency. Repetition builds reputation and Radio is the best medium to achieve this. At the same time you create a direct response campaign and you can do this by ensuring that you have a 'why someone should buy from you' message.
TV is more cost effective than you may think. TV has the ability to reach a mass regional audience. TV is recommended around the crucial parts of your sales year. As a visual medium you can create exciting campaigns that really show your business as a professional and sound business. Production is also cost effective.
Billboards have a good part to play in the branding of your business. You can target certain areas where your target market live or travel to and from. You can also achieve this with bus advertising, either on the bus or at the bus stops. With outdoor advertising available virtually everywhere, you can quickly create an impact into your market.
Magazine advertising is a targeted medium and there is a magazine for your business guaranteed. If you want to target housewives for example, there a number of magazines that can do this. With guaranteed readership you will know exactly how many readers would have seen your ad. Editorial can also sometimes become available if your product or service is relevant to what the magazine is running at that time.
Email Marketing is becoming a fast growing industry. The reason being is that you can target potential customers when they are ready to be marketed to. Creation has its own email platform which can handle every aspect of your email marketing.
Direct Mail is fantastic for targeting areas or households. For example, you can mailshot the territory you cover where there will be minimal waste. Customers like doing business with local companies and what better way then sending your message through potential customer’s letterboxes. You can send direct mail either with publications or solus for maximum impact.
Cinema is a terrific way to show off your product or service on the big screen either as a short film or as digital slides - it’s a great way to capture the viewer's eye. Once the ads play, the recall of them is the highest for any media as you can guarantee to grab the viewer’s attention. You can book screen by screen or book the whole cinema - it's up to you.

Event will ask you tough questions about why you want to exhibit and understand the difference's needed for face to face marketing.
Exhibitions can be a large undertaking, not only the space but also the design and build. Creation and Event have the same policy about open and honest costings. Line by line budgets are prepared with every single item listed so your budget can be managed and NOT exceeded - very rare these days in the exhibitions industry.
