There's a lot of fighting going on these days between social media activists, traditional media apologists and data geeks who can dig so deep into numbers they guarantee you'll strike it rich if you listen to them.
Here's the secret dirty little secret that none of them will tell you. The best media plan in the world is worthless if the creative is invisible.
Conversely, any medium that's seen or heard by the right person can be effective if it's carrying a great idea.
TV still works when you run spots like this.
Social media works when you create posts like this.
PR works when you create campaigns like this.
If you want to make sure your media dollars aren't being wasted, don't worry so much about where you're running and spend more time thinking about what you're running.
