You need an advertising agency that’ll turn your value proposition into big creative ideas

Advertising gives you the promotional ‘air-cover’ to heighten brand awareness. It will put you front of mind and drive customer engagement. If you’re serious about winning business, advertising should be pivotal to your marketing communications strategy.

But how many times have you heard, “advertising doesn’t work”?

Well, it doesn’t work for businesses without clear value propositions and messages. Or when ‘creating’ an advert means placing a tome of technical information over a mundane product shot.

We get it. We’re all passionate about our own products. But remember, you need adverts that sell to your customers in a nanosecond. Datasheet copy and self-indulgent product shots won’t do that.

Adverts like these are often, published once, and skimmed over with no further action. They’re a waste of time and money.

If you choose to advertise, you’ve got to give your messages a fighting chance of being seen [or heard]. Your advertising campaigns need to be succinct and pack a creative punch. Otherwise, you’ll waste your time, budget and join the “advertising doesn’t work” crowd.

With Intermedia’s brand positioning process, our capability to craft messages with award-winning creativity, and production quality second-to-none, your adverts will build brand awareness – rapid.

Our experienced ad-men will help you leverage creative advertising to the max. We’ll create Big Ideas. They’ll resonate with your audience. No question. And because we understand traditional and digital channels, we’ll get your messages everywhere they need to be.

Advertising works.

If you want an advertising agency that can prove it, you’re in the right place.

Your adverts will say the right things, to the right people, at the right time

Before we jump into creating ad concepts, we’ll want to get to know your customers. What do they think about your business or product now? What do we want them to think? Why should they believe you?

Sound daunting?

Don’t worry. Our planning framework will provide the answers. If you’ve already engaged us for strategic marketing planning, we’ll have what we need [and much more].

Production

Big Ideas don’t become jaw-dropping adverts by themselves

Without great art direction, and best-in-class production techniques, you’ll never realise the full potential of a creative idea. No matter how good it is. You need attention to detail, and to strive for perfection. It’s a rare commodity. But we have it in spades – and your adverts will prove it.

Nonetheless, it’s no good having great ideas if they don’t fit with your budget. Our creative team are commercial and realistic. When they put pen to paper to create your concept scamps, storyboards, and snappy headlines, they’ll be thinking one step ahead. We’re an advertising agency that respects budgets.

With Intermedia, your concepts will always be bang on brief. They’ll be no budgetary surprises down the line. So, even when we need to create videos, CGI or photography to realise them, your ads will have the WOW factor, without breaking the bank.

Press advertising

Your customers aren’t glued to their screens all the time

You need maximum reach to build brand awareness and win new customers. So, it’s important to communicate with prospects through every channel they use. That means print too.

Press advertising has declined, but by no means is it dead. It’s alive and well in trade magazines.

By building on brand association of quality industry titles, yours will ride on the authority of theirs. And with readership of those titles still being high, your brand and proposition is going to be seen.

With press advertising, your adverts have Bigger Impact. They’re physically bigger for a start. And with Intermedia’s creative skill, we’ll guarantee stand-out, even in the most influential industry titles.

Digital works in unison with press advertising, not instead of it. There’s no doubt most of us are screen-obsessed 24/7. But remember, the old faithful’s still cut it.

Outdoor advertising

Advertising that’ll stop your customers in their tracks

With outdoor, you need to communicate your message in three seconds flat.

Your messages need to cut to the quick, have high visual impact, and make every bit of available ad space count.

Intermedia campaigns work hard, as does our media planning. We’ll place your adverts where they’re relevant and most likely to generate interest. Billboards, vehicle wraps, digital displays, and street furniture are all fair game in B2B advertising. Especially on routes to industrial parks, conference centres and airports. The odd travel lounge, and train station escalator too.

But outdoor has moved on. Displays continue to become smarter, as does the digital technology that drives them. We’ll help you harness data to serve dynamic adverts that are context aware. Your messages will be more relevant, personalised and more engaging.

When you’ve only three seconds to make a statement, Intermedia’s advertising will make your prospects stop, and look for six.

Give your sales prospects an experience they won’t forget in a hurry

We’re all susceptible to a smart idea, even in B2B markets. So, if you want to promote your brand in a unique low-cost way, we’ll help you think outside-the-box.

As part of your advertising strategy, we’ll help you grab the attention of your prospects in bold and novel ways to create a buzz, on and offline. You might place temporary adverts outside of your top ten sales prospects’ offices. Or use water-soluble street graffiti along business travel routes.

One way or another, we’ll make your campaigns memorable, and get people engaged. After that, it’s up to you to close the deal.
