Whitney’s experience buying media is vast. Having worked at multiple television stations as a seller for 9 years helped him to gain a thorough understanding of the sell side process. The insights gained have given Whitney an advantage as a media buyer as he is aware of the reasons why stations price inventory the way they do.
Since Whitney began buying media in 2007, he has placed well over $150 Million in political media, along with fortune 500 companies such as Nationwide Insurance and AEP. He also has purchased media for countless political candidates from US Presidential, US Senate, Governor, US House, and many local races.
Furthermore, Whitney’s understanding of analytics makes his approach to buying far more in depth than a typical demographic. Using advanced data leads to buying audiences that are well defined beyond the typical A35+. This gives his approach further advantages since vendors only sell based upon traditional demographics when pricing their inventory, creating an arbitrage situation where his clients will save money and their messages will be delivered to a more precise audience.
