What is media buying?

Media buying is the result of calculated research, strategic planning and the multi-million dollar buying power to negotiate rates that are both efficient and effective for your campaign. Our experience allows us to identify the proper targets and trends for your message. Market savvy allows us to exploit those same findings.

We could use lots of cliche phrases like “we’ll take your business to the next level” or “we’ll drive your bottom line” but that’s not who we are. What we do promise is a plain-language approach to the ever-changing world of media. We help business owners and their staff members improve communication between their brand and their best consumer. We’re passionate about working with both small to mid-sized businesses and not-for-profit organizations. We know media and we’re ready to work.

Our Process



It is critical to get accurate information about the actual target audience. We can conduct interviews, organize phone surveys and moderate focus groups to determine strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for growth or improvement. Determining the primary and secondary target demographics is integral to the success of every media plan.



We use a variety of criteria when choosing media for clients. Factors such as lifestyle, income, education, current events, as well as viewing and/or listening data from Arbitron and Nielsen are all taken into account. We also consider the competitiveness of the marketplace and the overall competition to your brand.



Analysis is one of the most important pieces in the media puzzle. It’s our goal to make sure that every dollar planned and executed delivers the most readers, listeners, viewers, clicks and the like. It’s our passion to shuffle and audit so you don’t have to.
