No matter the media type, Marnox Media has your back Whether you are an advertising agency, media agency or a retailer, Marnox Media has you covered for brand exposure across the African continent. And it doesn’t matter what type of media is your preference either, as the Marnox Media team buys advertising space across the spectrum, from television to radio, print, outdoor and online. The main advantages that the company has are its experience and leadership. Having been in existence for 14 years, the Marnox Media team is led by founder and owner Mark Knocker, who himself has 21 years of experience in buying media in Africa. Combine these two wells of knowledge and know-how, and this translates into excellent service that is available across a range of African nations including: Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Angola, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, Malawi, Madagascar, Mauritius, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Ghana, and any other countries requested by the client. But buying is only one aspect of the Marnox Media business portfolio. Services across the entire value chain including planning, implementing, measuring and monitoring are also available as well as arrangement of productions, translations, activations, competitions, outside broadcasts, editorials and advertorials as well as public relations. The best part about all this, aside from being a one stop shop for all your needs, is that the company takes the hassle out of arranging and executing your requirements. Knocker comments, “It is as simple as setting a budget, date range, target market and campaign objectives, clicking send and Marnox Media will do the rest. The hassle of dealing with foreign currencies and upfront payments and media owners is all handled by us.” And speaking of media owners, the major ones that Marnox Media represents are another reason why you should consider utilising the company’s services. The government broadcasters for television and radio stations in Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland reach a vast audience as do the other media owners, which include most of the commercial radio stations in Southern Africa as well as the daily newspapers. With such a broad reach, your brand will be everywhere, reaching the people who really want to engage with what you have to offer. Another testament to Marnox Media is their impressive list of clients. While Knocker is reluctant to give names, he does reveal that his company buys all the electronic media for a leading South African retailer, who is rapidly growing its number of stores in 11 African countries. Marnox Media has retained this client’s business for over 5 years. Aside from what Marnox Media physically offers, Knocker says it is also about how the team goes about doing business, “Honesty and integrity and a good business ethic forms the base of everything we do ... We stand for advertising that is fair to the advertisers as well as fair to the media owners, leveraging off our decades of relationships with African media owners to deliver your advertising campaigns that will get results. Our clients trust us to handle their campaigns knowing that we will do everything in our power to accurately deliver on all their media schedules and advertising requirements. We apply our minds to everything our clients ask us to handle, raising questions and queries where we see problems. We have saved our clients on numerous occasions by spotting errors that would have been problematic for them in various African countries.” The astonishing thing about what the company offers is the number of people who make it all happen. With all these services available, you would think there would be an army of people. In reality, there are just 6 of them. Yet those 6 are all highly experienced, well connected individuals, making up the perfect team which always has the client’s best interests at heart. Knocker concludes with this simple message, “Partner with us and we will ensure that the buying of your advertising space into Africa is done well. We take the hassle out of buying!” Mark Knocker
