The Media Guru Speaks On:
Gross Impressions

Media Guru Question:

Thursday, December 01, 2016 - #9150:
Can you add gross impressions from multiple mediums from multiple markets to get one grand total for impressions? (i.e. 5,000 radio impressions from L.A. and 5,000 radio impressions from Atlanta and 10,000 TV impressions from Cleveland. Can I add all the impressions up so that the grand total impression is 20,0000?

Media Guru Answer:

Yes, this is entirely proper. Judgements about the relative value of the impression of different media are a completely separate issue. The different markets issue makes no difference at all.


The Media Guru Speakes On:
Ad Placement

Media Guru Question:

Friday, November 25, 2016 - #9149
How can I find out the pricing level/rate of placing banner ads in an office in New York and Los Angeles. Specifically, placing banner ads of an airline in a visa application center.

Media Guru Answers:

The query puzzles the Guru.

It appears to assume that there are public web terminals located in visa issuing offices. And it assumes that these terminals will carry ads.

This question goes beyond media issues; as far as the Guru is aware, visas are only issued by governments. Visa applications may be made on the relevant government's websites. Possibly embassies and consulates have walk-in service but that goes beyond the Guru's scope.

The Guru does not believe there are advertising opportunities of the type you seek.
