“My moment of truth with Mediaplus, and what really impressed me, is the way the Mediaplus team believed in the relationship ahead. They organized an amazing event in their office, in a beautiful location, invited the whole marketing team and arranged a very enriching session, with another top supplier of digital media, Snapchat, TikTok and Amazon. They let us experience the various possibilities that Mediaplus can help us achieve and they did it in a wonderful way. They let the suppliers speak to us, they led a very open Q&A session where we could ask them anything; the cost, in terms of the ROI, and this clarified for us that they as an agency are confident and transparently sharing the relationship with their suppliers, giving us the confidence that we can take a step forward and move on in that direction. I appreciated the lengths the team at Mediaplus Middle East and Serviceplan Middle East (including Frances and Rami) went to, in order to scale up the business, discuss possibilities and offer various solutions.”
Dabur Marketing Head, Nishant Sukumaran commented
