2016 Study of Media Planning and Buying

A study conducted jointly by Kantar Media and James G. Elliott Co., Inc. to understand the challenges today's Media Planners, Buyers and Sellers face, and to discover areas where expectations are misaligned.

Publisher's Guides and Decks based on both Planners/Buyers and Sellers questionnaires are available for free download here:


The James G. Elliott Co., Inc. is more than a traditional, independent advertising sales rep firm. The company is structured and managed in much the same way as the national sales operation of a larger publishing company. And we can attract and retain the same professional talent as those companies because we are able to offer similar Fortune 500-type employee programs and benefits. If you have an overflow situation or just need help, please call Jim Elliott at (213) 624-0900 x1514 or email him directly at j.elliott@jamesgelliott.com.
