+Media Solutions is changing the world — one click at a time.
Our mission is to ensure all stakeholders can take genuine action on social and environmental issues. We strengthen engagement with purpose-driven campaigns and initiatives by amplifying the message, activating audiences and measuring the impact.
Through custom-built +Impact HubsTM, +Media enables brands, events, and media to engage their target audiences with purpose-driven actions that achieve campaign goals and strengthen brand loyalty while making the world a better place to live.
We move consumers from inspiration to impact.
Until now, there has been no easy way for individuals to take action once they’ve been inspired by a product or content.
+Media bridges this gap between interest and action, seamlessly bringing people — whether watching, experiencing, or buying — with a single click to a hub of solutions that generate positive impact. Our customized +Impact Hubs frame these vetted and curated solutions according to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our +Impact HubTM, a tech-enabled MarComm solution, goes beyond that of traditional campaigns with real impact measurement. Now you can know exactly what your +HubTM users do once they've been inspired thanks to +Media’s proprietary behavioral analytics.
