Experience True Full-service B2B Media Buying
When it comes to advertising strategy, we always start with “the View from 30,000 Feet.” That means aligning media plans with your:
In other words, we’re not here to sell you on the plan that makes us the biggest markup. (In fact, we don’t mark up direct advertising spends.) When it comes to paid media, our philosophy is simple:
We build bespoke, multi-channel campaigns that reach and ignite the largest number of qualified prospects at the best possible value.
Every Network. Every Channel. No Compromises.
“We needed to roll out a sophisticated multimedia advertising campaign to stand out in a very conservative technology market. This was a difficult balancing act, and Altitude was the agency that rose to the challenge.”John Pettit
Our global client base comes from all points on the B2B spectrum. That’s taught us that no two advertising plans are ever exactly alike.
Some markets respond great to LinkedIn ads. Some don’t use the network at all. Key influencer spots in some industries can be easily had through Google Display Network placements. Others require direct buys.
Google and Bing PPC is a great bet – sometimes. Other times, it’s a money pit.
Heck, some B2B markets still read print. That’s why we build bespoke, integrated media plans – every time.
We use our experience, strategy and relationships to find you the most effective mix of:
- Search advertising
- Digital display advertising
- Programmatic advertising
- Geo-targeted and geofenced placements
- Social media ads on networks like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter
- Sponsored eBlasts and list rentals

Advanced Tech & Economies of Scale
Why work with a B2B media buying agency? For one, you get our years of experience. (We’ve done this a lot.)
Second, you get pre-existing relationships with publishers and influencers in industries like the life sciences, SaaS, high-tech manufacturing, oil & gas, academia, public safety and more.
Finally, you get access to an advanced technology stack. Every day, we use tools like Wordstream and SpyFu to manage bids and gather data. We tap into programmatic networks like Simpli.fi to target ads precisely. And we build custom marketing dashboards to help you understand exactly how your media plan is performing.
You could go it alone. Or you could get a fully built media planning and buying team, along with a full stack of technology, from Day 1.
B2B Advertising Campaign Examples
Every client is different, and every campaign is different. That means we can’t say exactly what we’ll do for you. But we can give you some examples of past media planning success.
- A major logistics company struggled with differentiation from upstart competitors. We pushed the envelope with evocative, eye-catching creative centered around “Oh, Ship!” moments – the times prospects realized they needed a more professional 3PL partner. The result? An immediate boost in awareness, and an overnight change in perception.
- A contract research organization was little-known in the clinical trials space. We hit the industry hard with a multi-channel campaign including print buys, content sponsorships, direct digital purchases and data-driven programmatic buys. By the next trade show, they weren’t introducing themselves anymore – attendees knew exactly who they were and what they did.
- A hardware provider provided a unique solution for asset management, but no one knew it was even an option. We worked with an industry influencer on a sponsored webinar, resulting in more than 100 qualified leads – overnight.
- A software maker needed to reach decision-makers at law enforcement agencies. We negotiated digital buys and email sponsorships with several industry publications, resulting in dozens of hard-to-find leads and significant return on ad spend (ROAS).
- A professional services firm needed to reach companies at just the right time – when they got hit with a sales tax audit. An aggressive Google PPC bidding strategy resulted in a closed deal on Day 1 – and 10X ROAS overnight.
