Choosing A Media Buying Agency

Part 2 in a 2-Part Media Series 

Once your media placement is decided upon, the last step in getting your creative advertising out to your target demographic is buying the media. This step involves negotiating with the vendor for the right price and the right placement. Learn more about media buying below.

Media Buying with Holland Adhaus

At Holland, we work to garner the best delivery on a buy within the client’s budget framework. No matter your budget, we will work with you to get the best possible buy to get your message to your target audience. We will help you get the most out of your creative messaging. 

After we have determined your media placement, we then get to work on negotiating the rates with each vendor. We also negotiate for extras (bonus spots, extra promotions, homepage takeovers) to give more for your dollars to enhance your campaign. Finally, after we have gotten you the best placement and price for your messaging, we complete the buy.

However, once the buy is competed, our job is far from over. Our post-buy process includes, but is not limited to:

  • Monitoring the buy 
  • Staying in touch with reps to ensure things run as scheduled 
  • Running a post-buy on the schedule to make sure it delivers against the projected plan
  • Asking for make-goods or credits or additional spots on the next flight should it not deliver against projections 
  • Pulling a post-buy analysis report that we include with our monthly or quarterly reporting to our clients
