Peer Evaluations & Insights BM0641 Media Buying & Sales Negotiation ICA3 Personal Insights PaperYear 1 / Semester 2 January 2011 In this project, we learn the basics of a media plan, how to sell media and how media buyers do their job.
Researching for the report and for facts or figures has been tough as these kinds of information are not readily available to students like us, henceforth gives us yet another hurdle to cross. However, I think the main learning points come from learning the techniques of people skill. Talking to people is one of the most fundamental and important skills to learn and master in the art of buying and selling.It is important to always address and acknowledge buyer concerns and to work to build relationships with the people you work with. Putting to practice something previously learnt only in theory is always an exhilarating experience, albeit somewhat stressful.
Nonetheless I learnt a lot. MS1002 Ariel Ang 093683N BM0641 Media Buying & Sales Negotiation ICA3 Peer Evaluation Year 1 / Semester 2 January 2011 Jacqueline Stansilas Jacqueline is a chirpy girl who has her own unique sense of humour. She is a good team member to have and does her work when told to do so.She is a splendid user of the English language and always has her own opinions on things.
Fiona Phoon Fiona is always quick to point out things that sounds amiss or things that she is unsure about so that we may swiftly rectify it.

So long as there is even one person who is willing to work on the project, she will try her very best to guide, help and accompany that person even if it eats into time she could have easily used for herself.
MS1002 Ariel Ang, 093683N Siti Bazilah 101617L MS1002 DB INSIGHT PAPER Through this ICA, I have realised that selling is not such a straight forward process.As a matter of fact, selling is just the surface. As the saying goes, it is merely the tip of the iceberg.
The layers that lay beneath the surface form the backbone of sales. The success of the sale depends on how well the salesperson conducts the layers beneath it. I have learnt that it is paramount for a media seller to manage positive relationships with his buyers/clients. This will determine the success of the sale, like I have stated earlier.
We have to show that the ‘customer is always right’, even if we do not believe in the aforementioned mentality.It is essential for a salesperson to manage his clients effectively in order to secure lucrative deals at the end of the day. On a side note, I feel that it was interesting when the module lecturer role played as the client. This breathed life into the theories that we have learnt in class.

• FIONA PHOON Fiona was always ready to meet for discussions. She has been a diligent group mate. She tends to have creative ideas from time to time during our group discussions. If Fiona uses opportunities in the near future to further sharpen her creativity, I believe that she would definitely be an indispensable worker.

Rachael Teo (102940W) MBSN ICA 3 Personal Insights Advertisement placement is a nerve wrecking part of this ICA. I have to discuss with my group mates which month to start placing the advertisement, where to place it in the magazine, how many times to place it and how long to place it. Through this ICA, we have researched on the different advertisement placement that would affect the effectiveness of the campaign.
We also have to take into consideration the amount of times the advertisement is placed in our magazines. If it’s too much, the readers would be bored of it and the campaign might backfire.

Even when she was there for discussion, she doesn’t contribute ideas and just sits there. She’s also not clear of the ICA even till the day when we are compiling the report.
