FAQs

What is the process to get my ad on-air?
There are four steps, really. Choose the channels you wish to advertise on. Select regions to target your campaign. Create a TV ad with us, or use your existing TV commercial. The Amagi backend team will then coordinate for all backend operations, while you sit back and enjoy watching your brand on TV!

 

Does Amagi have permission from TV networks to offer targeted advertising?
Yes. Amagi has partnered with various premium TV networks/channels and it is a joint initiative to sell channel space to regional advertisers, thereby incentivizing the effort of advertising on a premium channel.

 

What is a ball park figure I’m looking at for a TV advertising campaign?
The cost of an ad spot (10 seconds of TV time) ranges anywhere between 250 INR to 15000 INR, depending on the region where you want to advertise. It depends on the channel, and the territory. For instance, advertising in Mumbai would be much more expensive compared to advertising in Punjab. Similarly, advertising on Zee TV will be much more expensive compared to Zee News. This rate, multiplied by the number of times you want the ad to play in a week or month, gives you the rough cost of the campaign. You can also try using the Amagi MIX tool to get an idea of this cost.

 

Will I get a primetime slot?
They’re available. Our media plans are always a good mix of primetime and non-prime time slots, which our sales team will be happy to explain.
I want different ad versions to run in different locations. Is that possible?
Yes, that’s possible. In fact, there’s a unique option with Amagi wherein an advertiser can improve the effectiveness of his/her ad spends by airing different ads for different regions. This is called adversioning.

Can I target my ad to a specific city or the entire state?
Cities like Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad & Mumbai are considered as single Geo-units. West Bengal, Rajasthan, UP, Punjab are examples of states which are considered as single Geo-units.
If I take two markets – Mumbai & Delhi, can I play different ads for different cities?
Adversioning can help you out here. As explained earlier, adversioning will help you in using different versions of your ads in different regions, targeted at audiences in those locations.
