About Us

Robust Team is made up of reliable, remarkably experienced and resourceful advertising industry professionals. You will see we are the client-centric agency that you need because we believe in executing radiant media plans in a structured and measurable way to give you maximum reach and more bang for your buck. We will save you time and money at the same time as refreshing your resident resources

Our robustly structured approach is outlined below. You will see why you will have the edge over your competitors.

Information is king, and we will want to know all about you, and your business, and your brand because a robust, refreshing, and articulate strategy is developed through remediable consultation and required research and discovery. This begins with a strategic view of your campaign goals, and more importantly, includes a review of your micro-environment, such as your sales, distribution, competition, values, and previous media efforts, all of which is part of our resplendent renditions. In a nutshell we find that sweet spot that gives you the dazzling results and the reverent edge over your competitors

We seek with diligence to get a full understanding and expectations of your budgetary and financial requirements in order to customize a ravishing plan that meets your every need and your expectations because we provide a positive rich and refreshing return on your investment.

During the initial review and consultation, you can expect to be asked about:

  • Your profit margins
  • The break-even point of your program
  • The length of your sales cycle
  • The seasonality of purchases
  • Your customer loyalty value
  • The benefits of adding new customers, versus trading transactions with existing customers.

But here’s even more proof: We believe in not only providing rapid responsive platforms for your respected brand and rightful share of your rhapsodic share of voice, but also boosting your bottom line to respectfully fuel future razor-sharp media buys.

With the ever evolving and rapidly expanding media landscape, our Robust Team of reassuring professionals know exactly how, where, what media to buy and when to buy it.

Our professionals are tenacious negotiators and understand the difference between value and price.

Through our constant measurement of the landscape and in our understanding of your business, we readily ensure placement of the right words in the right place, at the right time, every time, all the time. The good news is that each media program we implement communicates value and is exactly how we match targeted research to a fully functional  and efficient media mix.

You will see why we advocate two-way communication and welcome your input and questions.

Some of the questions that we’re frequently asked are:

  • How does Robust construct a proper media mix?
  • Which sources of information do the Robust professionals use for analysis?
  • What are the experiences and results that Robust has derived from previously compiled media mixes?
  • Does the Robust Team have examples of successful media plan implementations?

Ethics and transparency are the cornerstones of our business, and we’re happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Case in point: The Robust Team members are seasoned negotiators. Negotiations are not simply about pricing, which is important – yes, but it’s also about placement.

Our negotiations are founded on the objective of delivering value and maximising client returns. Period!

Our robust negotiations seek to secure the best value placement at the best rate, as is our duty, to reduce the cost with and for our trusted partners.

When negotiating, we always bear in mind that your share of voice amplification is what matters most, and that’s just for starters.

At Robust Media we hold ourselves accountable to the highest possible level of ethics, and when managing your media budget we bring you absolute transparency.

Be assured that your media spend is managed ethically, and we are committed to delivering service par excellence with absolute clarity. We pride ourselves on our good-standing relationships fostered through mutual trust, respect, and professionalism.

The Robust Make Good offer supports our stance on ethics and transparency. Our Make Good offers are only considered if we deliver equal or better value to our clients, than that of the original order that was not fulfilled. We ensure that copies of all contracts are shared with you.

All details involved in Robust’s traffic reconciliations are made available to you. We open up your purchase and make all transactions visible to clients. The Robust Team complies openly and fully with any audits that our clients wish to conduct.

You will have absolute peace of mind
