Frequently Asked Questions

And We Have The Answers

  • What makes a media buying agency unique from other marketing agencies?

    Agencies that focus on media buying are experts in securing, strategizing, and negotiating advertising space across diverse media channels. Their unique skill set enables them to acquire prime ad spots at the most economical prices. Unlike other marketing agencies that provide a wide array of services, a media buying agency’s primary goal is to ensure your gaming message reaches the intended audience, in the most suitable location, at the perfect moment. Our team’s profound knowledge of the media ecosystem, coupled with our robust ties with media platforms, equips us with a competitive edge to yield the best outcomes for your gaming business.

  • How is media buying different from typical marketing strategies?

    Classic promotional tactics in the gaming industry may encompass various activities such as game content development, search engine optimization, or managing gaming community networks. Media buying, however, is all about the tactical acquisition of advertising slots where your gamer audience is most likely to interact. This is a niche expertise that demands comprehensive market analysis, bargaining prowess, and a profound grasp of media consumption patterns within the gaming sphere. Our mission as a media buying agency is to amplify your return on investment by guaranteeing your advertisements connect with your intended gamer audience in the most resonating manner.

  • What are the best channels for media buying?

    The most effective avenues for media acquisition hinge on your distinct gaming objectives and player demographics. Our team employs a variety of media, from classic channels like television, radio, and print, to digital platforms such as social media, search engines, and gaming websites. Each campaign is bespoke, and we apply our comprehensive knowledge of the gaming industry and data-informed strategies to pinpoint the most impactful channels for your enterprise. Keep in mind, it’s not about omnipresence; it’s about being where your gamers are.

  • What budget should I set aside for effective media buying?

    The financial commitment for media buying in the gaming industry can fluctuate significantly, influenced by factors such as the scale of your gaming enterprise, your ambitions, and the competitive environment. It’s not a case of one strategy fitting all scenarios. However, we’re committed to devising a tailored plan that harmonizes with your fiscal resources while driving a robust ROI. Our focus is to ensure your media buying investment is strategically directed towards accomplishing your unique gaming business goals. Curious about how this could work for you? We invite you to connect with us for a complimentary consultation on how we can amplify your game’s visibility.
