It All Starts With A Plan

Yearly Account Planner is designed to help you intelligently plan a full year's advertising for any client. Using the client's own sales flow figures or the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB) figures, you can calculate a month-by-month buget plan in a matter of minutes.
It's important for advertisers to have a consistent presence on your stations in order to build audience awareness. In peak selling months, a heavier ad schedule ensures increased sales. Yearly Account Planner applies both of these strategies to generate maximum results.

Intelligent Budget Planning

Yearly Account Planner lets you develop a yearly budget based on three criteria:
Base Budget -- The amount dedicated to advertising each month of the year. This is the client's regular advertising schedule to keep him in front of customers all year long.
Events Budget -- Funds allocated for special occasions (sales, promotions, etc.). These dollars are allocated during peak months of the year, when more business is occurring in the client's category.
Opportunity Budget -- Reserve cash available for unusual, unanticipated events. Allows the client to take advantage of special market conditions or a competitor's vulnerability.
Adjusting the budget slider allocates more or less of the budget to the Base and Events categories. The Opportunity percentage can also be adjusted, but doing so affects cash in the Base/Events pool.
