Innovative Solution Selling is the Only Viable Long-Term Growth Strategy for Media Sales

As marketers require more complex solutions to drive customer behavior, publishers are investing in new and expanded products, platforms, roles and capabilities.

To identify the key paths for growth, Alexander Group interviewed executives and collected sales performance data from 40+ leading Pure Play Digital, Integrated Broadcast, Integrated Print and Ad Tech companies.

  2. Segment transactional and solution buyers
  3. Align roles and compensation to growth objectives
  4. Optimize pre- and post-sales
  5. Incorporate programmatic into the core
