Finding a partner to help with media planning and buying comes with many benefits, including: 1.) More buying power: Media buying agencies have a large combined media spend that allows them to make big media buys. 2.) Experience: Media buyers are professionals who know what to look for and how to perform media buying procedures. 3.) Access to data and tools: Media buying agencies have access to audience management platforms that provide data and analytics to make a decision about what media blocks to purchase.
