Paid media advertising is all around us. It’s the content you pay to place—Google Adwords, tv and radio ads, direct mail, print ads, display/video, outdoor media, social media ads, retargeted online ads and influencer marketing; and the type of media that influences 90% of consumer purchase decisions. This program will uncover the different types of paid media, highlighting the pros and cons of each, and explain what media planning and buying actually is and how to make the process work effectively for your law firm.
