Share the Spotlight Without Sacrificing Your Audience in Q4
How can brands shine under a shared media spotlight by splitting the time – and bill – with other brands? A Co-Op Media Tour is often the answer to fulfill the need to showcase product launches, announcements, and awareness campaigns on a limited budget. With so many tour topics to choose from, how can you ensure you’re participating in one that can appropriately deliver brand messages and reach the right audience?
- Choose the Right Spokesperson: A nutritionist for a tour about healthy eating? A lifestyle expert who is also a mom discussing back-to-school essentials during COVID-19? Make sure you’re working with the right talent who will seamlessly deliver your main messages. MultiVu regularly organizes Co-Op tours around a timely theme and works with a spokesperson, who will share messaging in a way that is appealing to stations and relatable to viewers. The list of upcoming Co-Op tours below gives a preview of the SMEs and themes coming up that might be a timely fit for your next campaign.
- Get the Right Bang for Your Buck Without Compromising the Message: On average, 15 to 25 local and national television, radio, and internet stations across the country will broadcast each of these segments during their newscasts. Participation is limited to four sponsors per Co-Op and is determined based on availability and the news value of your message. Reaching out to a Hispanic audience? No problem. Bilingual Co-Ops help to expand reach and ensure you’re targeting your message to your audience. Full information is available for General and Bilingual tours.
- Co-Ops During COVID-19?: With media tours going virtual, spokespeople have risen up to the challenge. They’ve adapted by creating sets in their living rooms, kitchens, and backyards. MultiVu’s production team works closely with speakers to ensure the set incorporates the full suite of products, it’s well-lit, and the audio is sound. Can’t ship it? B-roll can be rolled in to showcase any product. To learn more about what to expect from Co-Ops, read this blog here.
Because some coordination is required for a multi-brand event, and in order to give our media relations team as much time as possible to pitch the story, deadlines for signing up for tours are one month prior to the Co-Op date. Please keep this in mind when considering participating.
Please take a look at these upcoming tour deadlines for the remainder of 2020 and then let us know if you’d like to participate or have questions.
