Media planning & buying @2x


From the client side perspective, bringing together different media and creative agencies is a hassle. As a full service agency, we make the integration of brand strategy, creative campaigns and channel marketing simple and straightforward with clear lines of accountability.


Media planning and buying has become more complex. It’s more finicky with varying online channels and media formats: more opportunity for segmentation, more A/B testing, more reporting, more attribution…


When your calendar is already slammed with strategy, stakeholder engagement, approvals, budgeting, compliance – not to mention emails, zoom calls, team calls, phone calls and, wow, the possibility of a face-to-face meeting – the last thing you need is liaising between different agencies to make your ‘round hole’ creative fits into your ‘square peg’ media schedule.


It’s a situation that clients and agencies in previous decades would have considered crazy.

Media planning and creative development went hand in hand. And the work was better and the client’s life simpler.


Indeed, in our view, the media independent revolution of the late 80s was always driven by agency financial models more than by client need. (Agencies always fancied themselves as being like lawyers and making boatloads of money charging by the hour. Pity it didn’t work out that way)


So here’s a simple solution: Always Be Media.


Our media team brings together some of the wisest heads and brightest talents in media to deliver added value for clients. From the moment we’re briefed, the media team and creative department work together. We give you a coherent plan where media and creative works ‘hand in glove’: making your life easier and creative implementation simpler.


And, of course, making your campaign more effective and affordable.

Headed up by Graham Milne, one of the UK’s most experienced media strategists, we use the full range of media planning tools to define audiences and deliver proven results at lower cost.

Basically, we aim to give you more and better for your media budget.


We also have innovative media charging models which we believe provide transparency and maximise the ‘bang for your buck’ in media buying.
