the7stars is the UK’s largest independent media agency, offering the best people, the best service and the best creative media campaigns.
We started life in 2005. Our reasons then were our reasons now. Fundamentally, we think that media is too important to be commoditised by big buying networks. We believe that advertisers deserve better accountability and complete transparency from their media partner, and we know that industry best work comes from industry best people, regardless of media budget. So we set a business goal to create a better place for people to work with a truly unique and progressive culture. An agency with a big difference – one that values long term relationships with both its clients and its people.
16 years on we have achieved all this and more. We were crowned Media Agency of the Year three times in three years by both Media Week and Campaign Magazine, we have been listed in The Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work league for the last eight years, and we are listed in the Telegraph’s 1000 Companies to inspire Britain. We have grown our business every single year, created award-winning work for our clients, and have consistently achieved outstanding media value.
In a commoditised and consolidated media landscape, we believe we are doing something truly unique – an entrepreneurial and innovative way of doing great work.
We plan and buy all media channels including TV, Press, Outdoor, Radio, Cinema, Digital (Display, PPC, SEO, Programmatic, VOD, VOL, Affiliates & Social – including influencers).
