I'm not so sure that follows (oh...hi everybody, this is my first post!).

Certainly a campaign on big brand, high volume sites would produce a large
number of advert impressions, but equally it would cost a great deal. Is it
not possible that a strong creative and/or technical solution, when placed
on an appropriate though (comparatively) low volume site, could also
produce the best return on investment? (it would be great to give an
example here,...but I haven't got one!)
