Our established relationships with UK media owners allow us comprehensive access to the industry’s media consumption data and audience profiling tools.

The experience to deliver

As an agency, we place thousands of public notices every year for clients. Our team is experienced in handling large volumes of notices, and can offer media advice, ensure accurate setting and proofing, offer legal compliance, financial analysis, and provide proof of insertion.

In recent years our public sector focus has grown significantly; resulting in wins on national frameworks for clients as far apart as Hull, London and Cornwall which span local authorities (county, city, district and borough), The NHS, colleges/universities, and government agencies.

An impressive track record

Recent campaigns have included fostering, adoption, trading standards, highways, adult education, public health, public consultation, libraries, recycling, child protection, benefit fraud, and domestic violence; campaigns which we have followed up with analysis and management reporting.


in savings

Adding to our achievements, our media buying team has recently delivered financial savings of 20% per annum against major media buying agencies and networks. Our capabilities also enable clients to save up to 75% on public notice advertising, compared to the costs they’d incur dealing directly with media owners or through an incumbent agency.

We are proud to be ranked in 1st place on the ESPO framework for Campaign Advertising Services, and joint top for public notices. We’ll be happy to provide information of this to all interested parties.
