You’re not seeing the adverts you see every day by accident. At S3 we apply objective, scientific approaches to enable us to understand the behaviours, attitudes and beliefs of consumers.

Media planning and buying is a science.

Not only do we source critical data from our global insight tools (Touchpoints, Experian, Mediatel, Location Analyst), but we also look at the science and research into complementary media channels and how this will affect campaigns.

Every advert you see has been meticulously planned by a team of experts to ensure each brand is reaching the right individual, in the right mind-set, the right number of times and with the right messaging.  We are that team of experts; recently voted the UK’s number one for Media Buying and Advertising.

We personally deal with over 75 different media owners across all channels, thus relieving you of that burdensome admin and giving you back time in your day to do the things that matter the most.  We have local and national knowledge and a team of experts who have worked both agency, client and supplier side to give a 360° approach to each campaign.

With the digital age upon us, the traditional media landscape is rapidly evolving and so too are consumers and advertisers, thus welcome to a 360° 21st century advertising agency.

We ensure we are the first to know about evolving and emerging media platforms, and were one of the first agencies to have an advertiser on Sky AdSmart.

Our target audience is anyone and everyone. You could want to reach the elusive Gen Z or target the Vintage Value seniors. If you don’t know who your audience is, we can tell you!

  • If your company needs an agency that understands the client brief, is chock-full of very smart people, who are brimming over with ideas and enthusiasm, then S3 is the place to go. Highly recommended.

  • “I worked with S3 on a high profile Waste and Recycling campaign to raise awareness of controversial changes to the Council’s Waste Management Services. They were key in helping to create an integrated campaign using multi-media channels to deliver a range of messages to a diverse audience.

    S3’s expert knowledge helped us deliver an effective campaign and we were pleased with the results. They kept me updated on progress throughout the campaign and were always at the end of the phone if I had any queries. I’m looking forward to working with them again in the future.”
