Why TEC Direct Media?

  • Research and Media Planning

    The best foundation for a media plan is sound research and healthy dose of experience. In addition to metrics like reach and frequency, CPC's, CTR's, CPP's or CPM's, we combine all relevant research and past experience to deliver the kind of media plan that will be efficient and effective.
  • Media Buying and Stewardship

    Building the plan is just the beginning. Now you need flawless execution, flexibility and stewardship to optimize your campaign. Our staff consistently executes fully integrated media campaigns on a national and local basis that impact sales. We negotiate hard, track every media buy and provide the support that achieves goals. And with media monitoring from M3D, our proprietary system, you're never left in the dark.
  • Access and Leverage

    TEC Direct Media, Inc. manages media 52 weeks a year so we're constantly in touch with media sellers to create opportunities and execute the right solutions fast and efficiently. We often have access to opportunistically priced media and our successful “Hot Buys” program has been a client favorite for over ten years. We've complemented many a plan with these strategic media placements at steeply discounted pricing.
