About Arm Candy

A media intelligence agency that inspires ingenuity and achieves results. We simplify a process that has been made complicated by the media industry allowing agencies to ‘plug’ into a media agency enabling them to execute media on behalf of their clients. As a one-stop shop for all media needs, we deliver well beyond the industry standard, in all facets of the process. This is achieved through our unique, planning methodology, buying process leveraging our original tech stack, and our extensive reporting delivery.

Beyond the deliverables; we’re experts at anticipating next steps, helping us to solve problems, well before they exist. This puts an added emphasis on ensuring we bring on team members who are inherently great problem solvers and naturally proactive.

If you’re known for being a media extraordinaire, we’ll put you to the test. We craft and execute top of the line strategies for our clients, based on data and business principles that go beyond just media practicality. We combine our intellectual property and understanding of the media landscape, with our client’s business model(s), leading to media executions that drive (and record) tangible results the client is stoked to see.
