Media Buying

Press, TV, radio, direct mail, outdoor, lead generation, digital – Hurst Media’s fully integrated media buying division lowers the total cost of marketing, saving clients’ advertising costs as well as time across every channel, and vastly improving impact.

Hurst Media Agency manages marketing budgets – from small to large – for clients in various industries, whether they want to place a single advertisement or annual print, broadcast, outdoor and online campaigns.

Only senior media buyers and planners with equally senior contacts at media owners can work at Hurst Media Agency. They all have extensive media planning and buying expertise – a distinct point of difference for Hurst when compared to the many media agencies comprised of naive recent graduates attempting to negotiate deals over drinks and far too long lunches.

Hurst Media’s in-house creative studio of dedicated copywriters, designers and production controllers react quickly to achieve clients’ objectives within the tight deadlines required to get the very best advertising deals.


Hurst Media has long standing publishing agreements in place with every major UK commercial media owner – including News UK, Mail Metro Media and Guardian Media Group (see publications) – establishing us as one of the UK’s leading contract publishers.

This unique position – and our significant buying power – means media owners treat us with respect. As a publisher ourselves, we understand media owners better than most other planners and buyers, and we know the best way to negotiate with them to lower the total cost of our client’s advertising campaigns.

The emphasis at Hurst Media Agency is on our clients – enabling them to benefit from our experience, track record and reliability to nurture relationships in their best interest. We don’t have fancy offices or take clients out on yachts – instead we put 100% of our effort and resource into saving clients’ time and money.

Most of our media planning, buying and budget management clients are SMEs who need the best possible return-on-investment from their advertising. Every media buying campaign commences with the same essential condition – we must save the client’s money. Often we quickly achieve this by simply renegotiating the rates they are paying for their existing successful campaigns.

Send us a full schedule of your last year’s advertising spend and we’ll send you an estimate of how much we can save you. Email us now.

As an SME ourselves, we appreciate that time and research can be very costly – that’s why our clients rely on us for expert advice, analysis and insight so they can save time and money, improve results and benefit from our wealth of experience.
