From Start Up to Media Powerhouse

Cox Communications has more than 40% share in television sales. However — through acquisitions and lack of strategic focus — COX’s digital sales unit was a complex, inefficient and ineffective organization. They were trying to sell a generic product without a product differentiator. Our task was to merge several internal units and align it around a coherent and externally valuable offering.

Navigating the Future

CO OP was given unprecedented permission to create new products and team structures, got harsh but fair input from clients, and had to get past the internal scepticism that ‘if all we have to sell is service, then we should go home’. But however proud the team was of being a cool new start-up, clients wanted the exact opposite. They wanted a resourceful, insightful team that knew how to help clients navigate the ever-changing world of digital advertising. They wanted a smart company who knew everything from one end to the other of the media market – hence the name we created, Gamut.

Understanding Activated

United around a new brand, our focus was on creating a single team that could deliver a simple promise everyday. Understanding Activated became the simple promise and guide to behavior, reinforced from the new (and explicitly brand-led) office space, to recruitment criteria, to the new products we jointly created. Over the years since we launched the brand, the personnel and offering have changed out of all recognition, but the brand and promise still guides their future.

“Gamut plays. The feedback has been very positive and the number of eye-popping, neck-recoiling, head-nodding responses too numerous to count. Virtual high-fives to you guys from across the interwebs. The baby is born and she’s a looker.”

Scott Siegler – Gamut, VP West Coast Operations
