Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Digital marketing is all about traffic, no matter what device you’re on. That is where Traffic Media comes in: we get you heard by creating the best content possible! We specialise in providing quality content across a range of channels, including social media, blogs, interviews, research, video and more. You run your business, we develop your brand, you increase your sales. It’s that simple!
How are you different?
If you have great content, people will stop and listen. By combining social media management and the development of thought leadership material, Traffic Media goes a step beyond other content marketing agencies. Between them, Julian and Garvan have 30 years’ experience in media and communications in wide-ranging areas, including technology, travel, food, arts, culture, media, sport and public affairs.
Why will the company / product do well?
Our expertise in managing and developing brand awareness in highly competitive marketplaces is particularly useful for entrepreneurs who just don’t have the time to do it themselves. For business owners who are established that bit longer, we help them become thought leaders in their sector through the development of more detailed content pieces, such as interviews, blogs and opinion pieces. Our focus extends from newly-launched businesses to well-established brands, which gives us a firm foothold in the marketplace.
