MI Media was brought to life in 2008 and from the get-go, our independent media agency has accelerated growth for challenger brands through media strategy, planning and buying. We value the importance of relationships with substance and due to our independent nature, we are able to fully focus on clients’ interests and objectives. When business challenges arise, we are here to build the most effective strategy and put media to work, which is exactly what we did for our shortlisted client, JML.

A core pillar of growth for MI Media this year, has been our data offering and the end of 2023 saw our very own data product, MIDAS come to life. Whilst our data centric approach is beneficial to client campaigns, it is only as strong as the team analysing it and we were thrilled that last year we could bring both elements of this together for the challenge at hand.

In 2023, our client JML had seen a downturn in its sales, revenue and profit due to the disruption in the retail landscape and it needed to focus harder on its digital sales channels. Our primary objective was to optimise JML’s digital accounts across PPC, Shopping and Amazon to capitalise on a crucial sales period and ultimately turn around what had been a challenging year. By the end of the campaign, we had managed to fully transform the client’s account and the results speak for themselves.

Our team got under the skin of JML’s business objectives and went over and above to execute on this. To make it to the podium would really be the cherry on top for our small but mighty digital team.

Client satisfaction is what we strive for, which shines through in our response from JML’s Group Marketing Director: MI supported us through a critical digital transformation period where sales growth was central to business stability during turbulent market conditions. The MI team’s strategic management has revolutionised how we run our digital sales channels; it’s been hugely impactful work. They’ve provided deep knowledge of the digital space in PPC and granular-level data management across our entire product portfolio and digital estates, to give us comprehensive SKU-level profitability visibility, which has given us complete confidence in their work and provided impressive results. MI Media’s incredible passion for its high-quality work and its approachable personability with its clients is what make MI so remarkable and unique for an independent agency of its size. We’ve loved working with them from day one”.

Whilst it is hugely rewarding to receive positive feedback from clients, it is also important to us as an agency that our teams are passionate about the work that they do. The team working on JML are thrilled that their hard work has been recognised.

George Hobday, Head of Digital & Data at MI Media comments “We are consistently striving to work hand-in-hand with our clients to scale their business and being shortlisted for the PPC Campaign of the Year (B2C) Award for this year’s UK Digital Growth Awards 2024 is a true reflection of our team’s hard work, dedication and commitment to achieving and exceeding our clients’ goals and objectives.”


Jamie Gibbins, an Account Manager here at MI comments “MI’s approach to campaign planning and strategy allows so much opportunity for success. We work alongside the business and not for them which makes data collaboration so easy. We are able to take real insights from the clients back end and apply this to our campaigns to deliver whichever KPI is necessary for the account.”

Our Account Director on the account, Jamie Walsh, highlights what it means to be shortlisted to this award “Being at MI for 5 years, it is clear that when working across biddable campaigns, we are always focused on driving the best performance for clients. It is always a great feeling when we see campaigns perform well and the direct impact of our optimisations on client business. I feel that these campaigns often go unrecognised, so it means the world to be shortlisted for the award. Getting recognition for our achievements really means a great deal to the team.”
