Media Buying

We have the expertise to handle all areas of traditional media buying - press, print, radio, TV, outdoor and sponsorship. But with changes in digital technologies and media consumption habits, often a cross channel marketing campaign is the answer. So throw digital into the media buying equation - social media, PPC, online video, email -  and we get really excited about the opportunities we can generate!

We combine our considerable local knowledge and contacts with established relationships with all major newspapers groups and media buying houses in the UK to secure best rates for our clients. Look upon us as not just media buyers, but negotiators, planners and strategists.

 
 
Web Design
Web Design, Support & Hosting

A combination of creativity, technology and commercial experience allows us to custom-build web and mobile sites to suit each client's individual needs, plus full back up and maintenance agreements, domain name registration and web hosting.  We might not keep with the Kardashians, but we do keep with today's increasingly mobile world! And we're fully geared  up for mobile and online marketing, app development and build.

PR & Copywriting  
PR & Copywriting

Good copy speaks volume and it's important that all your marketing material has the same tone of voice putting out a consistent brand message.  What we mean is, there's no point in having your website or company literature expertly designed, only to fill it with average to dull copy or marketing speak. Luckily, that will never happen if you leave the job to one of our experienced copywriters, who can turn their hand to writing stylish copy on any subject.

PR is a great way to complement your advertising or marketing and to get a campaign, a product, a service or an event talked about in the right places.  Our PR experts know how to spot the sort of story angle that will spark the curiosity of journalists and editors and will weave their magic to make sure your story reaches the right people at the right time with maximum impact.

The wow factor

For us here at ADS, there’s only one thing better than a client really liking the work we’ve done for them – and that’s a client absolutely loving it. So you can imagine our delight when a recent project was greeted with an enthusiastic ‘Wow!’

The client in question was Heythrop Park Resort, a magnificent eighteenth century rural retreat set in acres of Oxfordshire countryside near Chipping Norton.

Tracey Norcup, Director of Sales & Marketing at Heythrop Park Resort said, “Wow! Everyone loves the cocktail menus and wedding brochure; they look fantastic. Thanks so much for all your creative design and patience.”

Everyone wants their marketing campaign to have that wow factor. But how do you achieve it? The clues lie in Tracey’s endorsement. For a marketing campaign to really zing, it needs those little extras that only experience and talent can bring; inspiring qualities like flair, imagination and attention to detail, and practical skills like the ability to respond quickly and deliver promptly.

All these are attributes we nurture at ADS, as witnessed by another recent satisfied customer, Dream Doors. Their Teeside team commented, “Just wanted to say a big thank you for the new posters and adverts. Very prompt and efficient service as always."


Best Practice

Never one to sit for long at a desk, Caroline has been out and about again, making sure our current and potential clients don’t feel neglected. One of the clients she spent time with was Dream Doors. As part of our ongoing partnership with them, she presented at their Best Practice Day, highlighting the creative, service and advertising channels ADS offers to the network.

Web to Sales

Kelly has been on the road too. She attended a seminar on web design and conversion of web content to sales, hosted by local companies Urban Elements and Sandler Training.  She tells us lots of positive actions came out of the event, which she will be sharing with clients.

 

 

 
No rest for the wicked

Our designers’ clever fingers will be a blur on their keyboards during November and December. They not only have the OX and HC Magazines to design, they are also working on the WedlOX 2015 Wedding Magazine and StylebOX Home & Interiors Magazine.

 
 
     

What the customers say

We have worked with ads for many years and this is because they are responsive to our needs in the ever changing environment, efficient and really insightful to deliver our advertising strategy and marketing communications.

Stephanie Hendley
Head of Marketing and PR
Blenheim Palace


Having worked with ADS for over ten years, initially in my role of Divisional Director and then Managing Director at Buildbase, I always found the ADS team quick to respond to our somewhat challenging briefs and timescales whilst always achieving excellent results.

Because of this they were again the natural choice to support me in the successful launch and re-brand of my new business of Wyckham Blackwell Ltd earlier this year.

Stephen Thompstone,
Managing Director/Owner Wyckham Blackwell
(formerly Managing Director, Buildbase).

 

I’ve  been working with ads for a couple of years and I am very happy with the level of service we receive. They are a friendly professional agency who offer us fantastic support when it comes to helping promote our portfolio of regional events.

We work on small budgets and to tight deadlines and expect our money to do a lot,  but ads are always at hand to help on a practical level as well as offering advice on new channels and marketing opportunities. While at the same time helping keep our marketing activity on track and thereby providing us with a good return on investment.
