About us

Canopy has a wealth of experience in the advertising market. Working with The Guardian since 2007 proves we must be doing something right. Our business is structured very simply to maximise the efficiency of media sales and operations.

The sales team focus solely on representing our portfolio to advertisers, and we operate agency patches in exactly the same way you would expect a big publisher to. This leaves our operations team to run the logistical side, and ensures the right skill sets are used for the right job, in the right place, at the right time.

We have a track record of hitting targets, and by outsourcing media sales to us, the publishers’ sales team also then have the freedom to concentrate on their own cross-platform solutions.

We truly believe in our media owners’ trusted platforms, and are constantly looking at innovative avenues to keep the channel fresh. If you’d like to know more about this, then take a look at PrintWorks.

If you are interested to learn more about outsourcing your media sales, then we would love to hear from you:
