What We Do

Media Buying/Planning

Often overlooked and under appreciated, media planning and buying in such a culturally diverse state is an art. Done well, it increases impact by hitting the target, while expanding the reach and extending the frequency of a message’s delivery.

Our Approach

At tmdgroup, we take pride in our ability to identify the right delivery channel—whether it’s television, radio, outdoor, Internet, print, or a combination—and negotiating for maximum exposure. Because our media partners know we have no commercial clients, they understand that every media dollar we spend is for public information and education. This commitment to the public sector has netted positive results in every medium, translating into millions of dollars of no-charge advertising for our clients.

Services Include

  • Media Planning/Buying
  • Media Tracking/Evaluation
  • Racial/Ethnic Media Strategies
  • Social Media

Our media buyers’ skill at negotiating matching media schedules has added time slots, matching PSAs, media interviews, website links, message distribution at the neighborhood level, and other message extenders.

tmdgroup achieved and exceeded the objectives of the grant-funded media program.  tmdgroup was able to get value-added media buys at no cost to extend the duration of the media components and also negotiated the cost of the media commercial production to leverage limited resources.

Communications Division, California Public Utilities Commission

tmdgroup established 800# tracking which has allowed the DDTP (Deaf and Disabled Telecommunications Program) to evaluate the effectiveness of the advertising by identifying which calls to the Contact Center are a result of the campaigns. tmdgroup has always been responsive to request from the CPUC involving DDTP.
