About US

Our name Medium is an homage to the fact that media and advertising has become incredibly complicated and fragmented over the last several years. It used to be broadcast TV, cable and radio – now it’s multiple platforms on an array of devices.

Today, a good ad buying company is focused on getting powerful creative or content in front of their target audience regardless of the medium it takes to reach them.

Media Planning
It’s a complicated media landscape. Viewers and listeners have a ton of preferences and choices. That’s ok. It’s our job to ensure that your campaign message reaches them wherever they are.

No two campaigns are alike.

Each one needs a unique media analysis and plan that thoroughly considers resources, possibilities and goals. We’re well-versed and experienced in developing and implementing paid media strategies. That’s what we’ll deliver for your campaign.

Media Buying
Media buying isn’t celebrated work, but it is hard work that our team takes extremely seriously. Paid media is often the largest single expenditure a campaign will make (that’s because paid media can dramatically shape the outcome of a campaign).

We’ll get the most out of every dollar you spend by negotiating the lowest possible rate, every single time.

We partner with data analytics firms like Deep Root and 0ptimus to optimize media buys. Find out more by clicking HERE.

Competitive Tracking
Rarely is a political or public affairs campaign operating in a vacuum. You need to know what your opponents and allies are spending on paid media – and when and where messages are being delivered. This information will almost certainly impact the decisions your campaign makes.

It’s critically important that you have timely and accurate competitive intelligence.

Our team will constantly monitor the playing field so you have real-time access.
