Media & Analytics

We build, deploy, and manage efficient paid media campaigns to amplify your earned and owned media assets across all platforms. Whether traditional, digital, search, social, or out of home, our team of planners and buyers deliver measurable results.

Our Approach

Everything we do at Walk West starts with data. This is especially true in our media and analytics approach. We start by capturing all the data available to create a technical audit for our clients. This allows us to get a better understanding of how the data is set up and where we need to provide recommendations on optimizations.  Then we use research and the understanding of our client’s business goals to create a measurement plan that provides actionable KPI’s that we can tie back to business goals. Once the measurement plan and KPI’s are in place, we begin our media planning process.

Media Planning

We look at media planning as a mix of art and science.  Since the media landscape is rapidly changing and media consumption habits are evolving, we strive to find a balance of creative-led media with a performance marketing mindset. This allows us to create unique media plans for our clients that are steeped in data-led recommendations but with media tactics that have the ability to drive earned impressions.

Reporting & Optimization

While the media campaign is in market, our data analysts are  constantly working within the platforms to find ways to optimize our campaigns to exceed our clients KPI’s. We use Tableau as our dashboard platform which allows us to create unique, custom reports that our clients view in real-time. This provides our clients with true transparency into their media buy and allows us to visualize results that are easily digestible for everyone.


Our goal is to provide our clients with the most effective and efficient ways to spend their paid media dollars which leads to business growth.
