Depending on your budget, one of the overarching goals of your advertising strategy is to influence your audience more generally in favor of your brand, rather than to take a particular action. That requires the eponymous awareness campaign, which is intended to reach wide audiences in order to make your brand memorable and spread a message that doesn’t necessarily directly tie to your bottom line through sales.

So, it’s easy to see why and how a brand might choose to advertise in only one of those publications but perhaps not all three.
