How does Blazon work? – Blazon is a web based platform that enables advertisers plan and buy their own advertising campaigns via various media inventory listed on the site. Advertisers are expected to have their creative materials uploaded or emailed to us in the check-out process. If you do not have them already produced, we can help link you to our creative agency partners to help. Your ads also need to have been vetted by APCON (Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria). You do not need APCON vetting if your ad is for vacancies, Notices, Financial Statements, Goodwill Messages or Obituaries.The certificate of approval needs to also be uploaded on the site alongside the ads. You enjoy discounts on your placements based on volume and there is the statutory VAT added to your media costs. We charge a 5% service fee on the net total.
Media owners can also contact us to list their assets on the site for free.
What payment options are available? – You can pay via debit cards (InterSwitch and PayStack) or via bank deposits.
How can I be sure that my ads will be carried?–First, we contact you after your booking is done to confirm every detail and then get your ads to the respective media partner. We will contact you immediately your ads are booked to air in the selected channel so you can look out for it. We provide you with daily reports for an ongoing campaign and give you a proof of performance from the media house once the campaign is over. You may also enlist the services of a media monitoring agency to independently track the campaign.Finally we provide a money-back guarantee for ads that do not air as at when planned except in an instance of force majeure.
What rates are listed? – The rates listed on this platform are the official rack rates from the media houses and listed by size (e.g. full page color, full page black and white, half page color etc. for print media). For electronic media, the rates are listed by duration i.e. 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds and 60 seconds. We secure discounts from the media owners and pass them all back to you at check-out based on the volume of your buys. We regularly get bulk deals from media owners as well and pass back to you as at when we get them. Repeat clients also get increased discounts from us.
What if I want you to do the plan and implementation on my behalf? – We pride ourselves on superior media investment advisory and welcome clients who would want us to plan and buy on their behalf as well. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +2347060466083.
