#MediaSnack Ep. 47: Rise Of The Media Robots


On this week’s #MediaSnack David is joined by ID Comms Clients Services Director Carly Bedford to look at the way media is changing.
The big news of the week is that Danish AI media agency Blackwood7 is coming to London and partnering with the7starts, another independent media agency with a good reputation. 

Blackwood7 was launched in Denmark in 2013, and now successfully operates in Germany and the US and manages approximately €400m of client billings. The agency claims 25%-50% improvement in media effectiveness and absolute transparency to their clients. 

David and Carly argue that new businesses disrupting the media landscape are a great thing for advertisers, offering more choice in terms of how they invest and how they track and deliver media plans.

Next, they reflect on this year’s pitches and the prospects for 2017, focusing on the three key questions that clients are asking. These were:
- How to future-proof my business and my relationships with my media agency?
- What are the key areas my contract that I need to tighten up?
- How do we as an organisation (client side) continue to keep media high on the corporate agenda?
