Axiom Media is the UK’s largest independent TV & Digital advertising sales house. Founded in 2012 by former executives from prominent broadcasters around the country, Axiom Media provides bespoke sales opportunities on a domestic, international and global scale across a number of genres, including entertainment, news, and sport.
Axiom Media’s aim is simple: to return true value to channel owners through tailor-made sales opportunities. In other words, Axiom Media is keen to recognise the value and unique benefits of a channel, and to offer sales proposals that recognise these key assets. Working on a price per spot model, Axiom Media aims to establish fully-integrated commercial partnerships for all clients.
In its time, Axiom Media has established a number of media partnerships with high-profile channels such as BritAsia TV, Smithsonian Channel, VisionTV and many more.
There are a number of reasons to choose Axiom Media. Firstly, thanks to Axiom’s diverse portfolio, it continues to deliver volume. This can be seen by cross-comparison, which suggests that Axiom Media has reached double the audience of Turner and 68% more than Media15, both of whom are leading sales houses.
On top of its incredible volume, Axiom continues to work with two of the UK’s leading documentary channels: PBS and Smithsonian Channel. Focusing on the former, PBS is renowned for showcasing many of America’s best-loved and award-winning factual shows. Displaying some of the highest-quality documentary content, PBS reaches a large number of households, which is why it has collected over 18 million impressions.
Axiom is always a great choice for those interested in targeting the BAME population because it has an incredible ethnic network. According to Axiom’s data, the Indian and Brit Asian population makes up 7.4% of the UK’s population. Moreover, this population is more likely to consume brands that they’ve seen advertised on ethnic channels, largely due to the fact that they have greater loyalty to ethnic-targeted channels.
Given this information, Axiom Media works with 13 broadcast channels that target the BAME network, each of which delivers a strong reach. Axiom also work with the only FTA South Asian BVOD Platform (Zee5), the only African 24/7 movie channel via CTV, and a leading African News Network (again via CTV).
When compared to Sky, Axiom Media has a lower entry cost. Axiom Media’s services also represent better value for money when compared to Sky’s services.
