What is Traditional Media Buying?

Besides digital media, Bake More Pies is a highly experienced traditional media planning and buying agency, dedicated to creating and implementing results-driven media advertising campaigns. We serve all markets, in all states and in all media  including every form of traditional mediaT.V.Cable, Radio, Newspaper, Direct Mail & Outdoor. 

We can launch your traditional advertising campaign from inception to flawless media execution with speed and confidence. Our capabilities include everything from the daily details of buy management to big-picture strategy. Our expert media planning and buying staff are supported by the most powerful and sophisticated resources in the business. 

While everyone talks about return on investment (R.O.I.) and the need to make marketing’s role more accountable, Bake More Pies commitment to results has been at the core of our mission from day one. Today, it remains the essence of our success. 

Research Can Be Key.

What makes your customers buy? What is your biggest competitor spending on advertising? What about focus groups? 

Quality research can be the difference between a good marketing campaign and a great one. Our research products can help us create a roadmap that reaches new customers at a time when they are most likely to buy. Bake More Pies can help with primary research, as well as a full suite of secondary research tools. 

Targeting The Right People. At The Right Time.

Our experienced application of insight, strategy, and resources delivers demonstrable results for our clients. Through imaginative planning and savvy use of the most sophisticated media tools available, advertising is not just about reaching the most people. It’s about reaching and moving the right people to act, at the right time 

Our media buying staff have successfully negotiated media for some of the biggest companies in the world (like John Deere, Trane, Bombardier, Stihl, Yamaha Electronics, Husqvarna and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage), but we also have done a substantial amount of media buying on a spot (local) basis, especially in automotive. 

Besides ROI, Our Success Is Also Measured In Savings.

For one client, who has 68 retail stores across the country, we reduced the cost of their media by 29%. We achieved these types of savings through a combination of: 

  1. Twenty-five years of experience (knowing how to negotiate with the media). 
  2. Use of pricing models (based on prior buys, proprietary systems we have developed, and cost-reference services like SQAD). 
  3. Using our Target•Point™ media software to give clients the optimum media buy and avoid the mistakes made by most media planners. 

Are We Right For Your Company?

We may be. Do any of the following things apply? 

  • You don’t currently have an experienced traditional media buying resource.  
  • You feel that you aren’t getting the very best deals you could in media.  
  • Is your agency telling you they have the lowest rates because of their so-called buying power? 

Regardless of your situation, we can help. Typically, we save clients between at least 15% on their traditional media. This includes trade publications and enthusiast magazines. 

We start by conducting a media, advertising, and co-op audit to establish a fact-based benchmark of your current position. Only after this audit do we recommend options for improving the performance of each marketing element, based on our expertise and experience. 

Tough Negotiators. Easy to Work With!
