New Zealand has more radio frequencies per capita than any other country in the world. The good news is that gives advertisers exceptional opportunities to target both niche and national audiences – but it can make the campaign planning process a little daunting! That’s where The Radio Bureau comes in. A single source for radio advertising, we help advertisers navigate – and optimise – the New Zealand audio landscape. We take pride in working alongside advertising agencies and their clients to provide the most comprehensive, effective and impartial radio solutions possible.

Stuff connects with 3.2 million Kiwis every month across NZ’s largest news site, stuff.co.nz, our portfolio of metropolitan and community newspapers, as well as some of New Zealand’s best-loved magazines. Stuff leverages its audience and scale to diversify into new categories and revenue streams, to ensure we can continue to deliver the trusted journalism that Kiwis look for every day. Stuff also connects with the community through a range of sport, business and lifestyle events, and ventures like Neighbourly and Play Stuff.

We are a strategy company, a consumer insights company, a brand planning and innovation company. The Discovery Company. Born in 2001, we saw a window of opportunity in the insights space because a lot of agencies were traditional, inflexible and stuck in their ways. Eager to unpack the psychology of consumers, constantly evolve and most importantly apply our business savviness to real commercial challenge, we have grown year on year and now have offices in Auckland, Sydney, London and added the Social Insights agency Gravitas OPG to the group in 2021. We are driven by a desire to enable our clients to win and ultimately for our insight strategies to lead to commercial success. Intelligent people delivering amazing work with forward thinking clients – that’s the name of our game.

We exist to help NZ businesses reach more of their perfect customers and then do cool marketing stuff that turns them into raving fans. We started small so we get the challenges other SMEs face with marketing. We specialise in a range of areas – marketing, data, insights, branding. The two most important elements we believe in are that: Marketing works best when it’s multi-channel (where you’re offering your customers different sales channels to engage and purchase from you, like social media, mobile apps, your website, in print and physical retail stores). Secondly, data and insights are extremely powerful. They help you to understand who your best customer is and how to reach them in the way they want to be found. Once you have these foundations in place – with strategies to back them up – you can be confident that your business will be able to amplify everything you do.
