Each customer can combine their own individual portfolio of tools and link their marketing materials, assets, plans or actionable, cross-media advertising content for use throughout their wider user network, according to function or relevance.
Centrally managed, regionally deployed.
Regardless of channel, medium or output, the process is essentially the same: Standardized advertising media, made available via central marketing teams, can be adapted, localized and ordered by decentralized marketing teams - at regional, national or local levels - to meet local requirements or book directly with local media publishers.
socoto's tools offer local customization while ensuring reliable compliance with content specifications, legal restrictions and corporate design.
Convenient optional features, such as final HQ approval steps or the automatic import of content from product databases, allow high degrees of efficiency and control.
The integration of our communication modules with our marketing planning toolkit further optimizes transparent, real-time information management at all levels.
The socoto media plan enables systematic economic media planning processes for a large number of distribution partners or locations, thus ensuring efficient budgeting.
The media plan takes into account a diverse media portfolio - from the weekly newspaper and the daily paper to the local radio station. Extensive brochure distributions can hereby also be controlled in a targeted manner and with minimal expenditure of time.
As an ideal planning tool for the media department of large brand companies or media agencies, it ensures optimum support for regional sales partners with target group-specific media or distribution proposals.
Originally the tool for the planning of advertising papers was developed under the name ADVERTIZOR together with the BVDA.
How it works
You select a product or service for which you want to place an offer. You describe the corresponding target group, define the target areas of your sales partners and start the media planning.
The target group is identified in the defined rooms and related to the available advertising material. The intersection results in the appropriate media suggestions, which are either used for central booking or for the individual use of your distribution partners directly as a media suggestion in their socoto accounts are recorded. Here it no longer matters whether they are planning for 30 or 3,000 sales partners.
This will reduce your time and investment to a minimum and ensure optimal budgeting for many small budgets.
