Advertising Sales

Looking for someone to act as your sales team? Or support and in-house team with additional expertise and bandwidth?

Our core team have worked in the media sector for over 20 years. We specialise in monetising websites, video, events, published media, magazines and newspapers.

We’ve successfully launched big US brands into the UK & Europe and this has been at the forefront of much of our success.

Who do we work with?

For advertising sales, we are looking for established companies with sticky niche audiences and/or high volumes. Consumer websites, in particular, will need upwards of 1m unique users a month to attract the interest of big advertisers. For B2B the numbers can often be much lower or there to support events/printed media.

With any new clients we evaluate the opportunity to ensure we can add value to your business.

Do we need to have a database of potential clients?

If we are taking over from an existing team or you have a database of potential clients, with contact details, things tend to move considerably quicker. Much of the ‘sales cycle’ time is finding the correct people and making contact. We live in a world where few people pick up the phone so an approach may take several weeks before we can have a quality conversation and begin selling.

What if we need you to start from cold?

If you need support from a standing start, you’ll need to be prepared to pay for the time it takes to get that ball rolling. We’ll work fast and efficiently and cover as much of the market as we can, in the shortest time possible. Researching and first contact with potential clients is time consuming. When we do get through, that’s when the true sales cycle starts.

All projects of this nature will be charged a retainer to cover the time and expertise. It’s not an easy job, or you’d be doing it yourself!

Website advertising sales agency

Online advertising sales is at the forefront of our business. We have a team of experienced online salespeople combining years of experience, and relationships. We use this to help us quickly add value to your proposition.

Our team have worked with some of the worlds’ best known online publishers. These including household consumer names like Disney Maker Studios and Conde Nast. We’ve also worked with a whole host of websites offering content for targeted consumer and b2b audiences.

Experienced in video, display, sponsorships, IAB units and native content. We can aligne you with a number of our supply partners, meaning we can quickly monetise your online audience.

Events sponsorship sales/SPEX sales agency

Event sponsorship sales are advertising sales for events. These sales are sometimes referred to as SPEX and are key to the success of any event based business. We tap into the value of your audience and connect paying sponsors with your events. Doing this successfully requires a well honed skillset.

We have worked on a number of high quality events ranging from b2b awards ceremonies to large scale exhibitions. We’ve also worked on, and launched,¬† niche briefings in defined markets. The Lloyds List Awards, European Business Awards, Quoted Company Awards, The Restaurant show, The Legal IT Exhibition (and show) and a host of consumer and b2b events are amongst our successful projects.

If you’d like to talk about sponsorship sales, or about launching sponsorable events from your portfolio, please get in touch.

 

Print advertising sales – magazines and newspapers agency

Many people believe the whole world has moved online. This is true to a degree but there are still paper publishers doing very well from their traditional products. In truth, we’ve seen a resurgence of ‘paper’product in recent years.

On the page adverts, take overs, cover wraps and advertorials work well to drive publisher revenue and strong ROI for advertisers.

Many of our sales agency team members started out working in printed media. We have experience in magazines, newspapers, supplements and annuals.

We’re also aware of the intricacies involved in transitioning from print to digital whilst maintaining your core revenue stream. With our experience we can help throughout this process.

Why not speak to us to see if we could drive higher ad sales in your business. Or support your existing team in sales in aligning online and on the page strategies.

Advertising strategy

If your business is not quite ready for an advertising sales agency we can help point you in the right direction. Our consulting service aligns your products with the buying needs of advertisers.

We can work with you to help you build out your sales strategy and ensure you have a product which is ‘market ready’. We can consult on a one off project or work alongside your business from conception to monetisation. We’ve been directly involved in running a number of large publishing businesses and have been fundamental to the success of many others. Why not get in touch to tap into this experience?

Contract Sales house

It’s fair to say that our experience lies in media sales but over the years we have sold a number of other products. Events technology, from clients such as Luster, software and computer games, licenses and retail products have all been part of our successes.

We love to work with exciting and innovative companies. We offer both telephone and F2F sales and can help drive your business into your target market.
