Media planning and buying is the strategy behind the placement of advertisements.

To choose a media buying agency, you should consider the agency's past experiences. In particular, you should ask for case studies of similar projects the media buying company completed and the corresponding results. This will help you determine if the media buyer is a good fit for your goals.

We compiled all this data for you, so get started finding a media buyer agencies today!
