    Cost of TV spot on Rai 2

    The cost of a TV commercial on RAI 2 varies according to various aspects. The job of a media center such as Spada Media Group is therefore precisely to plan the best possible campaign from the point of view of price and audience for the target of interest of the customer. This work is carried out taking into account the preferred time slots, the commercial policies in place in the period of interest and the quantity and quality of the advertising spaces assigned (for example a commercial broadcast in the prime-time of a main channel has an audience and therefore a higher cost than one broadcast in the morning on a smaller network).
