grp media client centric

client-centric

The essence of GRP Media's promise is client-centric service. All media agencies provide the basics of research, planning, buying, and optimization. What separates GRP Media from our competitors is our dedication to always providing the highest level of service to each and every client.

We diligently maintain a culture where senior-level professionals stay intimately involved with their clients' businesses as a rule, not an exception. That's because we genuinely believe every client has the right to be treated like our most important client, because they are.

We are especially experienced working with “challenger brands” that don’t have all the resources of their bigger competitors and getting a strong ROI is critical. If you’re looking to play big without a mega advertising budget, you've come to the right place.

Bigger isn't better. Better is better.

A famous ad person once was asked how big he wanted to build his agency. “We want to see how big we can get before we get bad,” he responded. We believe bigger is not always better. Better is better. We’re a small agency, but we’ve never been accused of having small ideas or not having the resources to deliver big results.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US

"Prompt, professional beyond words and extremely thorough. A big plus: no prima donnas, just great people you want to work with."

— Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago

"GRP Media is an agency that I trust. A true partner."

— Northern Trust

"We work in a niche, trade business with limited media options and a lot of cultural and regulatory eccentricities. Of all the service providers we work with, GRP media consistently impresses me with their ability to understand our business and to ask questions and get clarification when they don't. They definitely are a business partner rather than a vendor. It's impressive."

— Northern Trust Corporate & Institutional Services

"With GRP Media it’s about the people, their willingness to always be flexible and work with us on our terms, their unwavering responsiveness. They negotiate media buys on our behalf as if they were using their own money."
