    Advertising campaign on Rai 3

    A television advertising campaign does not focus only on one channel, but includes a package of commercials across the network, in this case RAI, both because the advertising budget is optimized when there is good channel coverage and a high frequency of commercials, and because it is necessary to move in this way to cover the target object of the communication. However, it is possible to purchase packages with total coverage of a program, in the case of a request for focus on a particular program such as Mi Manda Rai 3 or Che Tempo Che Fa. For these programs there is a specific list price, with figures of a few tens of thousands of euros, to which a substantial discount must be applied depending on the time of year.
