What do you do?

We speak to clients all day long, advising how they can best achieve their goals using mobile.
We discuss how we can market their products using the media channels available to us, and break down the costs involved. We then talk to suppliers and set up the campaigns, ensuring they deliver.


Who is the team leader?

Definitely Jenny. She is first in the office and last to leave, and is always smiling and available to help new starters. She was also Ring Ring Media's first employee, so she knows the company well - Ring Ring Media would not be the same without her. Oh, and then there's Harry of course...

 

What's in your tray?

What tray? We use e-mail and BlackBerry.

 

Where do you get your inspiration?

Mobile advertising is still relatively new, and we continue to adapt as it evolves by keeping our ear to the ground. This means reading the trade press, following blogs, speaking to suppliers, attending events and trade shows and discussing new ideas with clients. Failing that, a quick stroke of Harry's beard a la [Dragons' Den panellist] James Caan and out pops another great idea.

 

Media we can't live without?

Mobile, of course, and music: we absolutely love Spotify. Our playlist ranges from country to the newest album by Muse, promoted by our client Warner Music.

 

Preferred lunching venues?

Gaucho, Shampers, Roka and l'Entrecote.

 

Most memorable night out?

The best nights out are those we still struggle to remember. We can usually be found at our local Adam and Eve pub on Friday afternoons, but being based in Soho we also bump into our media friends on Monday evenings, which just means more fun.

 

Advice to graduates?

Don't go for the obvious: graduate schemes are not the only way in. An internship can be a great way of getting into the industry, and it gives you and your employer a chance to test each other.

 

If we ruled the world...

No one would be safe.
