Using the Cross Media Marketing Advantage

One of the first noteworthy cross media marketing incidences occurred in 1977. The movie Saturday Night Fever was released – along with its respective sound track. Cross media marketing is, in essence, cross channel promotions with customers being given a response option in another channel. For instance, send a direct mail postcard with an invitation for an exclusive offer if they go to a particular URL. Cross media marketing at its best is integrated, highly targeted, and effective.

Cross media channels can include, among others:

  • online search ads
  • display ads
  • social media
  • video
  • direct mail
  • print
  • television
  • Email
