The Best in Personal Service.
In the overcrowded, often unedited online space, it's imperative to have a partner you can rely on to source the best placement for your brand while enabling you to retain control of your message and your ad dollars. Flatiron Media is that partner and our expertise can help you.
Over 11* Million information enthusiasts
invite us into their lives every day.
We are a full-service ad rep firm and publisher specializing in lifestyle content for women. Driven by a team of
industry thought leaders, we built a reputation for successfully optimizing our clients'
campaigns and helping them get the most value from their media budgets.
- Highly engaged audiences
- High-quality editorial environments
- A level of focused customer service that yields results
Advertisers We understand, not all ad impressions are the same.
It's common sense - customers are far more receptive to your message when it's relevant to the content in which they are engaged. Relying on impersonal, mass networks to get your placements right won't yield the best results. At Flatiron Media, quality content, the right context and creative flexibility matter most.
As a publisher, our editorial policy is to create original content that informs, entertains, and inspires women every single day. As a rep firm, we partner only with sites that share our core values. By representing a select group of premium lifestyle websites, we serve as an extension of their internal sales team. In doing so, we have control over each publisher's inventory. This enables us to guarantee share-of-voice (SOV), total ad placement transparency and creative integration of the media and promotional opportunities to benefit our clients.
Because we don't "auto fit" your ads through large, inflexible networks, we are not limited to using standard IAB units. Our partnerships allow for creative flexibility with our ad placements. We can use all IAB units as well as a variety of rich media and myriad promotional executions — skinning, microsites, filmstrips, sweepstakes, custom content — whatever creative form your campaign dictates.
Publishers We are a seamless extension of your sales team.
At Flatiron Media, we have the personnel and skill set required to work one-on-one with marketers to develop, plan and execute site-specific media buys. We don’t treat your inventory like a commodity. We work with our publisher on their holistic revenue goals — not as filler for their remnant space.
We provide a full suite of ad sales and related support services that can be scaled and customized
to fit your needs:
- Ad Sales
- Business Development
- Ad Operations (including client services, ad serving, billing, and collection)
- Acquisition Marketing
- eMail Advisory Services
Our Team Industry thought leaders with over 50 years experience.
