Advertising Seasonality

June 30, sound familiar? Well it's tax time and time to get take advantage of health rebate laws to minimise tax and save potentially penalty rates for being over the age of 30. Given this, the peak advertising period of June is expected with most brands generating the bulk of new customer acquisitions and renewing customers at this time of year.

Numbers represent advertising seasonality relative to the highest point on the chart for the given time period. A value of 100 is peak advertising activity for the industry. A value of 50 means that advertising is half as active. Likewise a value of 0 means there is no advertising in this period.
