WHO WE ARE

We're a team of passionate media specialists using advanced data techniques to deliver desired outcomes for clients. 

It's nice to meet you! 

A little unconventional, but this is Walk-In Media, the 2020 edition.

This year might have put some social distance between us, but our way of working together efficiently and effectively remains. The Walk-In Media family stay connected - as you can see from all of our happy work-from-home faces.

SIMON DAVIS, CEO

Unless you are one of the biggest spending global advertisers and are able to extract all of the services you need from a holding company, then there is a good chance that the network agency model, in which key specialisms such as data and performance are highly centralised and reserved for their volume clients, is not working well for you right now.

 

You might have considered the transparency and service of independent agencies as an alternative, but viewed their lower specialist capabilities as too much of a compromise. That’s why I founded Walk-In Media, and launched it with MSQ Partners- to give all advertisers the clear benefits of an independent agency, but with all the specialist capabilities of the network agencies…and available to advertisers of all sizes with no barriers to entry. 

 You can just Walk-In!

Our approach to PPC is diligent, focused and inspired. We help our clients meet their business goals in 3 steps - applying best practice to a brand's account(s) to build a strong foundation, expanding our reach to acquire new customers, and developing growth by following an efficient 'test & learn' matrix.

Why We're Great >

The role of our planning team is to understand the individual challenges our clients face and to deliver plans to overcome these, in an impartial and channel-agnostic way. Often this requires us to go outside of our skills remit and call on the capabilities of our group colleagues within MSQ who can assist with everything from data science, UX, and social media analytics, to PR, branding and creative. Allowing us to plan end-to-end and act as a true partner for our clients.

Barry Ragunathan

Financial Controller

Finance is too often seen as the inwardly focusing police in media agencies.  Finance is far more than that, we are the oil that keeps the business running smoothly, we work collaboratively with the internal teams to ensure billing and information provided to clients is timely and accurate.  In addition to serving reporting requirements, we build relationships with our internal teams, external  clients and suppliers to help manage their budgets and reporting effectively.  Our aim is to provide the commercial  and financial insight the business needs to succeed.
