We Believe In:

We believe the best media plans are a combination of experience, time and talent (yours and ours).

No mistakes. We take pride in doing a job the right way. Our proprietary tools also help ensure that media investments stay on track.

We are media strategists and there’s no winning without a strategic plan in place.

Relationships drive business forward. We grow and maintain meaningful relationships across the industry.

Media is evolving and so are we. Our staff completes ongoing education and training in all media channels to stay at the top of our industry. And we are eager to share our knowledge with you.

When we’re your media partner, you can expect swift and thoughtful responses.

Whether we’re buying your media or improving a process to drive a result, efficiency is at the heart of everything we do.

We want you to be successful so we’ll begin every media plan with a simple question. What’s the desired result you’re looking to achieve? Getting to your intended destination may take a few steps or various solutions but you can expect us to be well equipped to help get you there.

Frequently Asked Questions

We plan and buy media for artists, brands and other agencies.

In a word - no.  We execute media campaigns starting at just a few thousand dollars per month all the way to multi-million-dollar campaigns, using a mix of today’s media.

Most of our clients are B2C, however we also manage B2B campaigns using our advanced digital targeting capabilities.

If we had to pick right now, they are digital, broadcast, and outdoor media (but this changes monthly).  We started as a TV agency in 2001.  Today, we plan and buy almost every form of paid media.

Before we begin any work, we discuss our fee structure so there are no surprises.  Our fees are based on scope of work, the type of media you want us to manage and the total annual media investment.  Ask us how you can become eligible for reduced fees.
