  Media Planning is a daily online magazine covering small business news. We help entrepreneurs transform ideas and innovations into greatness.

Media planning involves deciding where to advertise. At the highest level, you decide what kind of advertising to buy (e.g. print, TV, radio, online). The advertising media plan then transitions to picking specific media outlets and doing the media buying for individual ad buys.
