The power of regional


With regional advertising, your business is put front and centre into the areas you’re targeting. It also gives you a canvas for experimentation; target micro regions with different messaging and see what works and what doesn’t. In addition, our talented creatives will work with you to create a regional advert perfect for specific local audiences.


Easily test, learn, and scale your regional advertising

Many advertisers already capitalise on our regionality – that’s why over half of ITV’s advertisers are able to build their business successfully by spending under £50,000 with us (Packages of Airtime on ITV Granada can be bought for as little as £10,855). Reach in Granada is well worth the spend too; you can reach up to 1.1 million people watching I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in Granada.
A simple regional test and control approach will help you learn quickly and get speedy wins. Only ITV’s regional network gives brands the ability to do that at scale flexibly.

Cut costs with regional advertising

The cost of ITV regional advertising is great value for money, so you end up spending less. 
With higher levels of viewing across linear live viewing and ITVX, your advertising campaign can be seen by more people than a year ago as well. You can also reduce risk further by booking your campaign week-by-week, capitalising on late access to airtime without penalty, as we continue to make TV and VOD advert slots more flexible.

Fords of Winsford is a well established car supermarket located in Cheshire. We have been an established radio advertiser for many years. However, in 2012, we wanted to increase awareness and drive footfall further by targeting new customers throughout the region who don’t listen to commercial radio! In a difficult market, and after lots of help from ITV and our agency, we took the plunge and advertised on the Granada Region. We haven’t looked back since. We now advertise throughout the year and we are confident that TV has helped to build our business further over the last 2 years. TV is now an integral part of our marketing strategy and will remain so. We work closely with our ITV team and our agency and we're confident that they understand our objectives and how we can work together to achieve these. Paul Campion, General Manager, Fords of Winsford

Don't forget digital

Advertising regionally with ITV is more than television – with ITV, you can also advertise digitally with VOD (video on demand). This lets you advertise in the heart of homes in Granada digitally, on a platform where millions of people (and growing!) are watching the shows they love. With our ITVX advertising options, you can extend your airtime campaign across the Granada Region on the ITVX from just £1,628.
