Welcome to Proud Media

Proud to deliver pain free media

Get Started


What is Media Buying?

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!

Why Proud Media?

Proud Media is the perfect balance between DIY media and a large agency. Hassle Free, Affordable and Easy. We are big enough (and have been around long enough!) to know what we are doing, but we are small enough to give you the attention you deserve.

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.

We don’t just punch in the numbers and recommend what gets spat out, we look at your strategy and your business requirements and recommend the RIGHT media for your campaign!

How does it work?

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!)

Additionally, you’ll always be dealing with your senior account manager, we’re here to ensure you know that your media is our number one priority.

  •   No Extra Cost to your Business
  •   Save yourself time and hassle
  •   Get the perfect media schedule for your campaign

Adam Dalgleish

Adam brings an  impressive 27 years experience to our team. His career in Outdoor advertising in Melbourne saw him cut his teeth on every area of the business from production to sales, before transferring to Brisbane to help run and grow the office.

With an entire career spent in the media industry across outdoor, radio and online and, most recently, 4BC/4BH for the past 10 years… Adam’s media experience is self evident.

Adam and his lovely wife Vicki have four busy children so most of his spare time is spent being the  family taxi driver and, on the odd occasion the metre is turned off, he loves  surfing and kayaking.

Adam is excited to be part of the team at Proud and  to offer his clients exceptional service by bringing all media to the table, independent analysis, and all his experience to deliver the best possible result – pain free!

To contact Adam give him a call on 0418 120 511 or shoot him an email at adam@proudmedia.com.au.

Gail Sullivan

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 gail@proudmedia.com.au

We love our coffee!

As with everyone in the advertising and marketing industry we are unable to function without lots of coffee!

Since we moved offices to Graceville in early 2013, Honour Espresso has become part of the family. Their amazing service, lovely smiles, delicious food and brilliant coffee keep us going strong on days in the office and we can’t thank them enough.

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)!!

Jen Gyles

Just past her 1 year anniversary with Proud, Jen is a magazine junkie from way back. She started out at Woman’s Day editorial and made the switch from editorial to advertising sales early in her career and never looked back.

Jen has over 17 years experience in Group Sales and Integrated Sales at Bauer Media (formerly ACP), Nine and News Life Media. Her client base has included a broad range of areas including global and national FMCG’s, retail and premium brands.

Jen tells us that she loves working closely with a small base of clients and offering a highly tailored service to meet their business needs, something she says you can’t always offer at a large agency.

Between work and running around after 4 year old twins Jen tells us that she doesn’t get a lot of ‘me-time’, however when she can steal a few quiet moments her guilty pleasure is indulging in a cup of tea and a good gossip mag. She started out on a tabloid and it’s a hard habit to kick (especially when there’s a Royal on the cover!).

We’re so pleased to have Jen’s skills and experience on the Proud team. To contact Jen give her a call on 0418 458 906 or shoot her an email at jen@proudmedia.com.au.

Emma Parrock

Emma joined the Client Services team at Proud Media  in early 2014. Prior to joining us Emma enjoyed 3 years at home dedicated to her 2 beautiful daughters.

Before starting her family Emma spent 8 years at 4BC and 4BH, where she worked as a Personal Assistant to a Sales Exec and the Sales Director, before joining the sales team herself. She brings  excellent expertise in proposals, schedule spreadsheets and, of course, client service, to us here at Proud!

Emma grew up on a farm outside Goondiwindi, surrounded by beef cattle, crops and lots of horses. When she’s not hard at work at the Proud Office, she loves enjoying  family time with her husband and two little girls – whether it’s an outing or just relaxing at home with a good book or movie, a nice bottle of wine and some great music.

Emma is excited to be part of the team at Proud and contribute to our pain free media philosophy. We are constantly in awe of her efficiency and know you will be too!  Call the office anytime for a chat with Emma or shoot her an email at emma@proudmedia.com.au

Belinda Patterson

Belinda (Bel) comes to us with over 11 years experience in the Graphic Design industry. With previous employers such as Sensis and Quiksilver, her experience covers every possible base from print & online, to sign writing and more.
A Melbournite, at the tender age of 10 Bel was a Victorian BMX number 1 and then later in life a European Tour Guide for 3 years. We know her adventurous and daredevil-ish personality will make her fit right in here with us!!
Bel tells us that apart from loving a good dance off, her favourite hobby is painting. Apparently all of her nieces and nephews, and nearly all of her friends, have some kind of personalized painting on their wall from ‘Aunty Bel’ and if they don’t, they can be sure that they will soon! We can’t wait to see what she can do for the rest of the team here at Proud!
Although Bel has only just started with us, we know that she’s going to be a fantastic addition to the team and that our clients will absolutely love working with her. Bel tells us that although she’s only just joined the team she already loves the vibe. She loves that she’s here to be there for our clients and she’s looking forward to building the relationships that will take Proud’s Graphic Design business into the future.
We’re so pleased to have Bel’s skills and experience here at Proud, so remember if you’re in need of assistance with your graphic design, email Bel today at belinda@proudmedia.com.au.
