media

the channels of communication available to a firm (or some other organization) through which the firm's products can be advertised to prospective buyers. The main media channels available in the UK and other major economies include commercial television and radio, newspapers and magazines, technical journals, poster sites, cinemas and theatres, display cards (on buses, in restaurants etc.) and direct mailing. A firm's selection of appropriate media for its ADVERTISEMENTS will depend critically on whether the whole MARKET or particular MARKET SEGMENTS are being targeted (for example, in the former case national newspapers may be used, in the latter case, appropriate specialist journals and magazines); the desired degree of ADVERTISING FREQUENCY required (daily, weekly, etc.); and the relative costs of placing advertisements in the various media combined with the firm's advertising budget limits. See ADVERTISING, INTERNET.
