...for the media industry

With over a decade of experience working with clients in the media industry, Beacon Dodsworth fully understands the challenges that you face, from media planning to increasing circulation.

We provide off-the-shelf and bespoke products to an extensive portfolio of media clients including press, cinema, radio and poster.

We are the recommended geographic information system (GIS) of key media bodies, such as POSTAR, The Newspaper Society, the Radio Advertising Bureau (RAB) and Radio Joint Audience Research Limited (RAJAR).

Plan media campaigns

Our media planning clients use Prospex to bring their media schedules to life, visualising campaigns on one map. With Prospex they direct the advertising to true customers, visualise store and customer catchments alongside media catchments, classify customers and find more customers to advertise to.

Increase advertising revenue

Media owners use Prospex to map the coverage of their advertising medium (e.g. newspaper or cinema) in relation to their buyers’ existing and potential customers, strengthening their sales pitch to the buyer.

Used in conjunction with the P² People & Places people classification Prospex shows what type of people consume their media (i.e. newspaper, cinema, radio). The type of products these people tend to buy and what advertising techniques are most effective for them are determined, demonstrating how appropriate their advertising medium is to their buyers.

Boost circulation

We work with the main players in the regional press, including Associated Newspapers, Trinity Group and Gazette Media Company. They all use our mapping software, Prospex, for marketing and planning tasks, such as boosting circulation, reducing distribution costs, understanding readers and finding more of them.
