How Media Auditing Works
In a pitch process, the IAS partners with an independent media specialist who is able to facilitate and conduct media audits as part of the selection process. This independent specialist is a further reassurance for client procurement and corporate governance departments.
When we looked at how media agency pitch processes worked in South Africa, we decided to use our learnings from international exposure we have had and incorporate media auditing into our IAS media agency pitch process.
