From our point of view, media buying is finding the right medium, negotiating a great rate and putting your product marketing in the perfect place so that a large number of the right people can see it. Simple right! Well not necessarily…
There are so many choices in media land for where your ads can go. Free TV, Paid TV, Radio, Newspapers, Magazines, Billboards, Transit and that doesn’t even touch on the millions of online options available. Phew!
So how do you choose the right marketing option for your product and your audience? Well that’s where we come in.
Introducing Proud Media, your personal marketing assistant. You can call the shots or we can advise you from our years of industry experience. It’s up to you!
Proud Media is here to bring you pain free media!
Proud Media is the perfect balance between DIY media and a large agency. Hassle Free, Affordable and Easy.
We can help you with your mainstream media social media, website, graphic design, marketing collateral, branding and more – all without hiring a whole team. If it’s media related, we do it and for everything else, we do it or we have very talented partners who do!
Proud Media can buy all of your media or just some. You stay in total control of your spend – we’re all about doing whatever you need so you feel comfortable.
We’ll save you precious time by presenting an overview of all your options without all the meetings and phone calls from various reps. You can bounce your ideas off us and you’ll get an honest, unbiased, industry savvy opinion.
Think of us like a mortgage broker. Running around, negotiating with the banks to get you the best deal possible. Your mortgage broker is paid by the bank for bringing them your business but it costs you, the home owner, the same* (if not better) than if you had done all the hard work yourself. Not only did you save yourself plenty of time, you also had years of experience to draw on to ensure you got the right product for your specific requirements and needs.
We are the same. We have no affiliation with any particular media supplier. Our loyalty is with you and ensuring you have the product you need, at the right price without all the leg work. Simple… pain free media! (yes, we know it sounds too good to be true!)

Since joining Proud in 2012, Gail has loved her transition into the wonderful world of Media Buying.
After working as the National Marketing Manager of a large retail company for the previous 8 years Gail was exposed to every facet of the marketing mix. From Media to Creative Strategy and all the things that lie in between, Gail created everything from Brand Strategies to effective Call to Action campaigns. During this time she even used Proud Media for all of her Media Buying needs!
After a great working relationship the opportunity then arose for Gail to join Proud and the rest is history!!
Outside of work, Gail enjoys fitness, food and wine… unfortunately trying to give all three equal importance often causes much internal conflict!
To contact Gail give her a call on 0434 618 434 or shoot her an email at email@example.com
As with everyone in the advertising and marketing industry we are unable to function without lots of coffee!

If you’re in the area head in, say hi and grab a coffee. Don’t forget to tell them we sent you (then they might give us a free one)!!

Heading up our Graphic Design department is Chhaya, who joined the Proud family in early 2013.
With a solid design background, Chhaya has worked as a graphic designer since completing her B. Design degree at Queensland College of Art in 2007. Chhaya currently splits her time between her freelance work, and our fantastic family here at Proud.
Chhaya’s talents include juggling projects and deadlines… although she says this isn’t a talent so much as a skill that takes constant work! And drawing has been a talent of hers since she was a kid and she says she guesses most designers have some form of artistic ability… or at least they should!
Chhaya tells us that her favourite thing about working at Proud is the supportive and laid back atmosphere of our little office. Being the only designer can feel like a lonely job in larger organisations, but with Proud, everyone works closely on projects in a way that makes everything feel collaborative and that’s a great thing!
If you want to speak to Chhaya about your graphic design job please feel free to give her a call in the office or shoot her an email at email@example.com

What some of our lovely clients have to say…
“Since 2006, Proud Media has managed our radio campaigns, which involve multiple stations running branding and CTA ads every month. All the scheduling, production and placement within this program has been given to Proud Media after realising the total efficiency of the agency which engenders a confidence that everything is under control. The great benefit to us is the constant reminders of deadlines and the help in production, which means the whole campaign is now planned and runs far more smoothly.”
– Kate Spencer, Marketing Manager, Pillow Talk www.pillowtalk.com.au
“Proud Media has offered us excellent service. Knowing that our ads are going to be right, every time, is great. The team’s insights, as to ad placement and negotiation of the best price for our ads, has been second to none. Our radio ads have had the phones ringing almost non-stop and local demand for games is smashing player attendance records. We have just had our best ever September and October despite the economic turmoil in the world at the minute.”
– Nicole Lander, Laser Tag in a Box www.lasertag.com.au
“We have been working with Proud Media for several years now and have found them an absolute delight to work with. The service is always friendly and efficient. Most importantly, their knowledge and understanding of advertising and communications is unsurpassed.”
