What makes us different?

It’s simple. We have 20 years of experience of being on the other side of the fence. Roger Keys has contributed to hundreds of media companies’ sales meetings. Many of the meetings focused on pricing and how the particular medium should be priced to meet its budget. The meetings focused on days/dayparts/areas/times of the year where the medium can price itself the lowest and areas where pricing has to be priced the highest in order to meet its goal.

It gives us a tremendous head-start against other agencies and media buying services that don’t have that insight. Most of the competition came from other agencies – not media companies – and don’t have that inside knowledge. The result? Marketing Keys offers its clients the most thought out, well-planned, efficiently priced marketing programs coupled with the most amount of value-added.
