Ads24 snapped up two hefty accolades at this year’s MOST Awards, proving that they are among the best-of-the-best in the industry. The company won the Media Owner of The Year in the newspaper category and came second in the overall The Media Owner of The Year Award.
The MOST Awards are an annual celebration that recognises excellence in service delivery, knowledge and innovation in the media industry. The awards are based on a survey that rates and ranks over 150 media owners and media agencies in South Africa, based on the following criteria:
- Knowledge of own brand
- Sales service delivery
- Knowledge of client brands
- Administration service delivery
Over 300 participants from large, medium and small sized agencies from the major metropolitan areas of Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town participated in the media owners section of the MOST survey, which means that Ads24 was being rated by experienced professionals from within the industry. Commenting on the awards in The Media magazine, researcher Brad Aigner said: “The team achieved very high scores across all six of the rating criteria and impressively achieved the best criteria score among all media owners against the criteria ‘knowledge of client brands’ and ‘innovation’.”
Some of the quotes from survey participants included: “Ads24 constantly innovates through linking print and digital for 360 campaigns. They are also one of the media owners championing innovation in content marketing …”; “Working with Ads24 is a dream! The involvement of their staff on my campaigns whenever I book with them is amazing …” and; “They are the best! Simple.”
Commenting after the awards, Ané Honiball General Manager for Ads24 said: “It is an honour to have been recognised for a job well done and we are delighted to have received these accolades. The awards go a long way to show that our passionate, creative and innovative team are on the right track to consistently improve our service to clients.”About Ads24
