EXPERIENCE

Sales houses within the contract publishing sector have a reputation for underperforming, often using inexperienced sales teams who portfolio-sell the offerings rather than develop specialist markets. This often results in the underdevelopment of market opportunities and key relationships. These organisations are often perceived in the industry as order-takers rather than sales-creators. By appointing such an experienced team you can ensure that the revenue potential of your publication is identified, stimulated and converted.

TRANSPARENCY

Our advertising sales effort will be completely transparent and we are committed to sharing all our advertising information with our partners. Our database sales system will allow you to know which companies we have contacted, what progress is being made with them and what exactly we are doing to drive revenue into your publication. The database will record bookings, forward bookings, and prospects. We will also build up a database of those companies who decline to advertise with your publication and exactly why. A database-driven advertising system is the only completely transparent way of you knowing exactly where the advertising effort is going and which areas are successful.

Our History

After many years in media our Founder Deborah become a mum in early 2008. Having enjoyed maternity leave with her new son Jack, and due to a lack of flexibility with her then employer Deborah decided it was time to set up her own business.

 Having previously outsourced certain parts of her commercial efforts in previous high-level roles, Deborah had always been disenchanted by her experiences and pulled the elements back in-house.

 A lack of process, accountability, communication, and of course revenue in sales agency offerings helped her build the core elements of what was to be her new baby, and The Media Sales House was born in April 2009.

Having added a second child Frankie into the mix and business partner Paul, TMSH continues to go from strength to strength. Almost 7 years on and the vision continues to be a reality with clients ranging from major media owners like Time Out, to branded content agencies like Wardour Communications and John Brown Media to organisations like The University of Oxford.
