• Get To Know How Powerful Media Works

Our POWER comes from understanding the cultural connections, social dynamics, and communication habits that drive consumer purchasing. By combining our know-how with when and where to converse with consumers, we’re able to develop customized marketing strategies that reach the target audience while engaging them and promoting conversation with them.  It boils down to four components:

  • Metrics:  Science , computer technology, and mathematics
  • Art:  The creativity of thoughts and plans
  • Psychology:  The study of human behavior
  • Experience:  Adapting new ideas into lessons learned from past successes and failures

The Media Power Team strives to build relationships and engage conversations, whether it's the consumer, our clients, vendors, or co-workers. Willingness to learn and share new ideas and maintain an open mind expands our ability to perform and improve our products and services to our clients.

Vendors often comment how receptive our team is to meeting and sharing ideas that will benefit our clients. By keeping our minds and doors open, results have exceeded expectations. We've achieved successful product placement in national television shows and media events with personal appearances and promotions with major names such as: Jeff and Jordan from Big Brothers and Bob Timberlake for the furniture industry, Snoop Dog for Pabst's Blast and Kayla Martell, 2011 Miss America Finalist, for the national tour of Women's Hair Loss Seminars.

    GOT A CALL FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

    When I answered the phone it was a woman from the Department of Justice.  Sure!  I thought this was a prank call.  But then she went on to explain that the reason for the call was to set up a conference call with their lawyers to discuss the upcoming Tribune and Sinclair Broadcasting merger and the impact on my retail client in the Greensboro-High Point-Winston Salem market.   How interesting!  In my 35+ years of media buying handling some larger, Fortune 500 accounts, I've never been asked by the government about my opinion. . . .nor do I know anyone else in the industry that has.  What did they want to know?

  • Have you ever wondered if you are really getting all the media exposure you pay for? Do you know where the hidden costs are if your staff or your ad agency is not skilled at forecasting rating points? Do you know how often the stations on your buy run the wrong traffic or fail to deliver the planned GRPs?

    Do your customers allow YOU to charge for products and services that weren't delivered as ordered? Do you know many ad agencies and advertisers do exactly that? You shouldn't pay for media that doesn't run as projected, negotiated and ordered; but you probably do if you aren't conducting media performance audits.

    One client hired MPA to conduct a sample audit of their in-house media department. They selected three markets- Dallas, Charlotte and Pittsburgh. We audited their entire process – from plans to buys, from invoices to payment vouchers.They advertised weekly entertainment events so it was important that spots run as ordered. Most radio stations demanded payment in advance because entertainment clients are considered "transient" advertisers.To our client's surprise (but not ours) the media performance audit revealed that not one single radio station ran their schedules as ordered. Traffic was wrong, critical days were missed, the number of spots varied, but the client was paying 100% for the advertising as ordered.

    I thought we were running a pretty tight operation until MPA conducted a performance audit. The annual impact of this slippage easily cost our company over $250,000 per year. We believe in the MPA way of guarding our money.
