The assignment is to create a complete media plan/including budget for Village Surf Shop as outlined in Exercise 17.
Review all chapters, but pay special attention to Chapters 2, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.
The Coca-Cola case is a strong example.
Don’t forget online/social media in your planning and buying.
If you want to include guerilla marketing/PR events, price it at $25,000 per event. Explain these and indicate where and when they would take place. For the budget, just leave the total amount for guerilla/PR as a contingency.
