McDonald's reallocates media spending for '98

Published on .

McDonald's Corp. is shifting its media spending this year to a 50-50 split between national and local advertising, the company told Wall Street analysts last week. In 1997, the burger giant spent 75% of its estimated $600 million budget on national and 25% on local media, the company said. The move is part of its increased focus on local marketing as it tries to boost sales in its 12,380 U.S. restaurants.
