Digital Solutions

Digital Solutions spending for online campaigns has exploded. Companies use the medium 24/7 and analytics can be monitored so that activities can be tuned up within 24 hours. Advertising has come a long way in the last 5 and 10 years, and clients should take advantage of all the mediums available, by creating compelling storylines, and innovative campaigns using all the digital solutions accessible to them. Many might think a digital video solution is the answer, it’s not always a highly expensive solution, or a cheap off the wall $2k job that will suffice. Each solution we offer is completely different than the next. One has to evaluate more than just what we perceive as being important, as research often shows us completely different things. Playing around with inexperienced people in this field is costly in the long run, as it can quickly ruin your reputation. We ensure that:

  • Delivery in all video standards and formats to all devices where applicable to the end user, which can include cinematic conversion if necessary.
  • Adjust video streams to match each viewer’s system and preferences to gain maximum effect, which includes mobile devices, ipads and tablets, if they are used by New Zealand audiences and demographics.
  • Measure results in real time-making it easy to analyse and adjust, so that media can be spent more carefully around ROI, using Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, if those markets are appropriate.
  • Help build longer return on the investment, by providing a number of solutions and tuning them as we go.
  • Make it easy to work with multiple ad networks for the online data and response.
