What is a media agency?
With an industry not well known to the outside world, you might just be wondering what a media agency does. We plan advertising to reach the right people in the right place at the right time… all for the right price. We’re not in the business of making ads, but buying advertising space at the best price for our clients, making sure that audiences are exposed to our brands, and helping to deliver business results. It’s planning, it’s trading, and it’s a lot of fun.
