The Drum recommends the following agencies similar to MediaCom


MediaCom Manchester opened at Commercial Wharf in 1996 with just five staff. The business grew steadily to number 58 employees by 2011, when the acquisition of Brilliant Media not only saved over 80 jobs, but also saw the business grow into a multi-office network - adding operations in both Leeds and Birmingham. The introduction of our specialist digital arm the following year, MediaCom i-LAB, took us to a whole new level again. By bringing in a number of digital performance specialists, we quickly established ourselves as a centre for excellence across MediaCom's EMEA offices, with Manchester's systems and processes being adopted right across the network. In 2014 MediaCom North had moved into an iconic new home in the heart of Spinningfields.


At the end of 2016, MediaCom North acquired independent digital agency Code Computerlove (Code). Established in 1999, Code is one of the most recognised digital businesses outside of London, creating award-winning experiences for its impressive client list that includes Hillarys, MAG, Asda, HMV, CentreParcs, Brother, Go-Ahead (Trains) Chester Zoo and Amnesty International. Code currently employs 90 people that operate from offices in Manchester.


We plan and buy all forms of advertising media regionally, nationally, and internationally. We work to optimise the entire system of our clients' marketing communications, not just individual channels. Because we believe everything is connected. That's why we no longer even call ourselves a media agency - We're 'The Content + Connections Agency'. Having Code on board strengthens our ability to provide an offering that is unrivalled in the UK for both scale and sophistication in delivering across the whole marketing ecosystem, and cements MediaCom's place as industry leader in the digital space. Like Code, MediaCom is focused on outcomes, with data and the consumer at the centre of our decision-making and have always found we are able to create far more effective platforms for our clients when acquisition and conversion are integrated. Along with our specialist measurement & analytics team, and unique 20/20 planning process we offer clients a truly exceptional, full service approach that no other agency can offer.
