What Does This Mean To You

As a business, you need to make sure your message is placed on vehicles where it’s going to be seen and acted upon.  Before placing your ad, ask questions about traffic to the mobile site.  Inquire about page views and unique visitors.  If it’s on an app, ask about downloads.  The success of your message depends on targeting – make sure that the audience you want to reach is using the site and channel where your ad is going to appear.  Compare sites on a CPM (cost per thousand) basis.  Buying something purely based on a low price could end up being bad mistake.  You get the audience you pay for.  For more information on reaching your targets and getting results, please contact your Sun Sentinel representative or:
