"Big Green Egg has a long history of working with MBI as two organically grown Atlanta based companies.
When Big Green Egg was ready to step up to national broadcast to support their 4,000+ national dealer network, they came to MBI for a creative approach to deliver on their ambitious media objectives.
MBI responded with a tightly focused plan that delivered national coverage focused on Big Green Egg's prime selling seasons and key audience demos. The plan met and exceeded expectations on all fronts. Audience delivery, network selection, daypart mix and efficiencies hit targets that would be expected from a budget with a lot more digits.
In a word, the results for Big Green Egg were "smokin'!"

Throughout our partnership, they consistently provide agile, proactive, and
thoughtful recommendations. They remain conscientious of our budget

with limited in-house analytics."

"As the Daily's brand grew in distribution, it became clear we needed to transition from our regional ad buy to a national ad buy to reach our target in an impactful way. With MBI's recommendation, Daily's was able to generate nearly 7 times the number of impressions that would have been achieved with our previous years regional buy for the same budget!
MBI negotiated drastically lower rates than the open rate and provided valuable data and research about why national print made sense for our target and our brand, in order to help make a solid case of the program to senior management. We benefited from MBI's know how regarding what magazines would be the most relevant to our target, and their detailed recommendations to fulfill our campaign goals.
Our campaign was successful and about 20,000
consumers entered in the contest we were advertising. We were so pleased with
the results that we decided to use MBI again to run a similar program!"
- V. Delannoy, Brand Manager at Daily's Cocktails
"MBI is our full-service media department. They've served our agency for almost four years and while we're 400 miles apart, it's as if they are in the office next door. Bottom line is they're smart, efficient, talented thinkers and problem solvers. Everything's always buttoned up with MBI."
- J. Ehrlich, President of The Brand Squad
Team has done an excellent job supporting our business, and I recommend them
highly. They provided great research supporting their recommendations and were
very proactive and detailed in analyzing results of the campaign."
