Should you really communicate during the summer ?

Summer. Sales. Holidays.

So many favorable reasons to put your brand forward.
Paradoxically, it is the season when the least advertisers communicate.
You may know, press is a highly seasonal market.
Summer is a “hollow” period for many media.

However, communicating during the summer is suitable for:

• Emerging more easily because there is less advertising in magazines
• Enjoying larger circulation summer especially on people magazines
• Gaining market share easily and stand out
• Getting  attractive deals through competitive offers offered by media
Some advertisers have even built their media strategy taking advantage of the seasonality of the market.

Take a look at these media offers made during summer 2015 :

APP, Average price per page is much lower with those offers. Here Public, a people French magazine sells 6 pages for 18 000€ whereas the gross rate for one page only is 14 600€. We have another offer with L'Express, Le Figaro Magazine and Le Point, 3 main news French titles combine an offer: 21 000€ for 1 page in each. Total gross rate should be 96 000€, this is almost 80% off. Last offer is from M Publicité, (Challenges, le Monde, L'Obs…) you choose your brand and get a competitive price whatever mix you choose.
