About Gibson Media

Our team has had the privilege of serving clients since 1999 across a variety of industries including higher education, tourism, retail, non-profit and technology.

Gibson Media, Inc. is a high-horsepower, strategy-driven, marketing and advertising consulting firm. We are located in the heart of Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood at the corner of First and Washington. We reside here because it's ground zero for tourism, entertainment, technology, and beauty. The vibe here is creative which fits with our entrepreneurial spirit and innovative fervor. However, while Seattle is our home, we serve our clients -- as leaders in advertising, marketing, branding and media initiatives -- all around the world.

We give you leverage because we steward millions of media dollars. That means our clients benefit from the pull we have in the marketplace. We’re able to generate efficient buys and we know how to work relationally with media managers to negotiate better inventory, more value adds, and volume at a lower cost.


Your Creative Will Be Noticed

Connection is Key

Your message will get seen and heard. Powerful creative has a dramatic impact on your media campaign. We call this our Media Multiplier. Simply put, it means that because the creative product we generate actually breaks through the clutter and gets noticed – there's no need to pummel people over and over to get heard. Not only does that lead to happier customers, it costs you less money as fewer impressions are needed.

We help you be entrepreneurs. People tell us our entrepreneurial spirit is contagious. We provide unique approaches to media content and delivery systems, while using innovative tactics and multivariate testing to determine effectiveness. What’s more, we’re committed to finding what resonates with your desired audience so you can effectively engage them.

Your direction is grounded in research: Let’s just say, “Analysis” didn’t become part of our tagline accidentally.

We regularly conduct focus groups, customer profile mapping, online surveys, and competitive spending analyses as part of our media planning process. You can be confident we’ll identify and uncover your primary, secondary, and tertiary audiences/needs in order to most powerfully move them to inquiry, engagement, and conversion.

All your efforts will be optimized: We’ll continually optimize your campaigns to maximize engagement and conversion. We’ll identify your KPI’s in advance, implement tracking programs, and guide the effort by making ongoing adjustments.

You’ll receive comprehensive reporting: Our data obsession pays off when providing monthly reports for clients. We love sharing how our campaigns are progressing, the insights we’ve gleaned, and recommended areas for improvement.
