What makes us distinctive?

MediaCom is the only media network whose philosophy places people at the heart of it – People first, better results. By putting people at the centre of everything we do, we achieve better results for our clients.

1. Consumers

We spend more time talking to consumers than any other media agency. All our communications is built on genuine consumer insight, to fully experience how the changing media landscape informs lives, attitudes  and behaviours. This is exemplified through one of our pioneering research initiatives called “Real World Streets™”, which goes beyond simply reporting what consumers
say, to understanding what they actually do. Because often, what people say and what they do, are two different things.

2. Clients

We focus on clients from four different angles – by driving accountability forward, by offering the best value in the market, by ensuring the highest possible standards
of media implementation, and by future proofing our clients’ businesses so they are the first to exploit the new opportunities of emerging media.

3. Our staff

We employ the best people in the industry. To attract them, develop them and keep them, we strive to give our staff a fresh and inspiring environment. We make this real through tangible initiatives that empower our staff to reach their potential and to move our business and our clients’ businesses forward. Behind all our initiatives, the thinking is simple: inspired people will deliver smarter,more innovative work for our clients. 

Where we can add value

For clients to connect with consumers, we need to go beyond the WHAT and into the WHY. We achieve this by spending more time talking to consumers than any other agency, and through the smarter application of data and analysis.

We believe in engineering the right space and culture to let our people create brilliant, results-driven ideas for our clients. That is why we have created a culture that encourages all our people to keep challenging the status quo on behalf of our clients.

Increasingly, consumers search for and consume content, with no regard for what medium might have produced it. We are at home creating, delivering and managing content as it is planning and buying media.
