ATOMIC 212°: WHO WE ARE
We began our journey in 2007 as Atomic Search:
A performance media buying agency and a data-driven search specialist.
In 2014 the business transformed into Atomic 212°, with a full range of services across all media, both online and offline. But our origins still define our DNA. We are the only full service media agency in Australia to have started out as a search marketing and performance media business, and as such accountability for the spending of every dollar remains at the heart of our operation. Accordingly, we have re-engineered our tools for digital performance media to extend across all channels.
Of course, the use of creative principles to propel our data-driven insights is also key. The proposition is simple: use technology, data and imagination to identify the most effective media mix.
HOW WE DO IT
PEOPLE AND THEIR ROLES
Our hand-picked staff are multi-disciplined. They act not only as analysts and buyers, but also as partnership managers, who leverage developments in media to bring creative and content marketing closer to the media process than ever before. Creative media buyers, if you like.
FEWER CLIENTS PER PERSON
You simply cannot get close to your clients’ businesses while working across half a dozen clients. By increasing the responsibilities of each team member and decreasing the number of clients per person, we foster a more effective environment for meeting our clients’ needs.
SUBSTANTIATED CREATIVE THINKING
Gut instinct is a critical success factor at Atomic 212°, and as such we believe it is critical to leverage creative and instinctual buying. We have created a process that marries intuition with evidence-based data points. This substantiates thinking and stimulates further insight. We call the process SCB: Substantiated Creative Buying.
We do not favour remuneration models that rely entirely on retainers. We prefer to be paid when we perform and only when you succeed. What’s more, while most agencies have a range of hidden add-on services which lead to additional fees, we prefer to avoid extra charges and to include these as the minimum service standards for every client. For instance, econometric modelling and consumer research are often charged as add-ons by other agencies, but we include them as a necessary stage in media recommendations.
We believe that channel planning, the much-hyped Holy Grail of media in the naughties, is redundant. We live in a consumer led world, and the need to consider and optimise media based on individual contacts is paramount. While most agencies use a range of planning techniques which often contradict each other, we use one methodology across all clients, with a focus on attribution, cost and predictive analytics.
