Advertising-expense budgeting method based on what a brand’s or firm’s competitors are estimated to be spending. This method assumes the other firms have the same marketing objectives and know what they are doing.

Such a method is not considered very accurate because :
1. The competitor might not be knowing the right thing
2. The communication budget for a company might also differ from its competitor due to factors like company reputation, resource, opportunities and objectives
