For political campaigns, the process of media buying has become much more complicated, with dramatic changes in viewing habits and the proliferation of platforms.

Part of the secret to our firm’s success has been partnering with Fortune Media, Inc. for the past 20 years, Ondine is on top of these market changes, is willing to think outside the box to maximize our resources, and is diligent in always doing what’s best for her client.

David L. Mowery

“Ondine, and the whole Fortune Media team, represent the pinnacle of political media buying and the best of our business in general. From large, months long statewide buys to last minute cable insertions, their professionalism and expertise help consultants like me WIN RACES. Their expert analysis and long standing business relationships with stations and ad networks help media professionals and the campaigns they represent get more and better placements for less money because they know when to buy, what to buy and how to make sure it clears whether you place LUR or non pre-emptible or anything in between.

On top of their business acumen and ability to help consultants win races, Ondine is a mentor to many in our business and is always willing to lend an ear or a hand when you need advice or just someone to vent to. She’s not just the best in the business, she’s a true friend and mentor to so many of us who got into this business as kids who barely knew what they were doing and continues to be there for all of us whether we’re million dollar accounts or never even place with her.”

You want Ondine Fortune to be part of your team.

She’s more than a media buyer. She’s a media planner, a strategist and one of the few people in the business who understands how all pieces of the media puzzle come together.

With a background in cable, Ondine knows how to micro target. Instead of just throwing up a schedule, she identifies takes your targeting and finds the best ways to reach those voters. She knows how broadcast, cable, and digital fit together. Her recommendations help you reach those targets efficiently. That means you save money and in our case, a lot of money. She doesn’t take your numbers and plug them into something she’s already done. She plans from the ground up

In the last campaign we worked together, we were outspent by two to one. Ondine presented a media plan that solely focused on our targets. With her plan we were able to reach the targets more efficiently despite being out spent. We won an upset in no small part because of the work of Fortune Media.

Tough campaign? Do what I did. Call Ondine Fortune and Fortune Media. It’s one of the best decisions you can make
