Why Us? What Makes Us Different?

Deep industry experience.
Before starting Retain Media, Brian spent 12 years working in vehicle-focused media, primarily in the Caravan, Motorbike, Marine Truck, construction and farm equipment markets, as well as Auto and the adjacent industries such as Finance,Insurance, parts and accessories.
Brian worked on some of the biggest mastheads in the industry, such as the caravan industry bible “Caravan World” and Power Torque in Trucks and the biggest circulating motorbike magazine “Cycle Torque”.
In the 7 years before starting Retain Media, Brian worked at Carsales.com.au in several roles starting in sales before moving into strategy where Brian’s role was the Strategy and Insights Manager across 6 verticals – Caravans, Motorbikes, Marine, Trucks, Construction and Farm Equipment.
During this time, Brian dealt with hundreds of stretched marketing teams, DPs, GMs, Sales Managers and Dealer Owners.
They needed help.
The marketing teams tended to be so stretched they didn’t have the time to keep up with the rapid pace of change in digital marketing.
In dealerships, often it was Owners, DPs, GMs or Sales managers who managed the marketing budget, but it was only a small part of their role. They didn’t have the time or experience to allocate their budget in the most effective way.
They were looking for specialist help – someone who understood their industries, their customers and how to use digital channels to reach and influence them.
Retain Media was born to help these OEMS and Dealers make better use of and get better returns from their digital media budget.
