So you have a brand new commercial, billboard or print ad and you can't wait to get it out there. Who places that media? Many advertisers rely on their rep to help them. This isn't always best for you. Remember, the rep's job is to extract as much money from your pocket as possible. They have sales meetings every week in which they are instructed to do so. That is the function of a sales representative. The function of an agency is to ensure that your budget is spent in the areas that will be most impactful for your business.
What if your rep is brand new to selling for the company? Maybe they don't know the ins and outs of their business just yet. Perhaps they aren't comfortable asking their sales manager for a better rate for you or maybe their management is really pushing them to sell some unsold inventory that might now be the best fit for your business. A case in point, try to stay away from Packages. Most of the time, they are better for the station than they are for you. Say you lock in to advertise in your favorite sports team's games. Then that team tanks and blows their season early on. Viewership goes down and your still paying for it. That isn't an effecient use of your ad dollar.
