Using proprietary audience planning technology aligned with business goals, aip develops bespoke integrated media solutions for brands. 

The truth is, focusing on media channels, CPMs, cookies, or impressions is a mistake made far too often. It leads to high-frequency, low-quality and low-impact campaigns that annoy people and are subsequently forgotten.

Agencies and advertisers need to respect people's time and understand the value of their attention. Today’s campaigns have to be more empathetic and emotionally engaging than ever before to gain valuable attention. What's more, they need to create long-lasting consumer relationships that drive tangible business outcomes.

We think it's time for something different. And we think different is better.

Founded in 2017 and led by Mark and Sam, aip creates better brand and consumer connections to make advertising more enjoyable, engaging, and effective. The business is 5 pillars that help us to disrupt the agency world for the better. 

  1. Transparency - Nothing is hidden because we are proud of the value we bring to our client partnerships.

  2. Connect & automate - We get excited when we can connect and automate things.  When we move time from tasks that generate minimum value into tasks that generate lots of value.

  3. Frictionless - Working with us is easy. In fact, we will be the easiest partner our clients have ever worked with. 

  4. Smarter - Working with us helps our clients to work smarter. Working for us, helps you to become smarter.

  5. Agility - Flexible working & diverse talent delivers better performance. We think that people who think differently help us to deliver better solutions.
