Council Partnerships

IMS Group deliver increased income revenue streams to many UK governmental and charitable bodies using our highly effective council advertising grid.

Since 2005, IMS Group have been developing a comprehensive and diverse database of advertisers, marketers and media buyers – many of whom show a preference for advertising in or on council/governmental media. Local authorities who have allowed us to utilise their digital assets or property for advertising have benefitted from increased, measurable revenues which in turn help to subsidise much needed services and/or publications.

IMS have an experienced team of sales professionals and account handlers that are familiar with working with local authorities and public sector bodies. We work alongside our council and local authority partners to deliver the real value that their assets are worth.

We understand the potential risks that are presented to council and government agencies when allowing their assets and publications to be used for advertising purposes, which is why we’re happy to sit down with each and every one of our partners and establish a mutually beneficial way forward that both parties feel comfortable with. We remove the risks from the partnerships we have by having open lines of communication and a completely transparent approach to our business dealings. Many of our advertising partners are also reassured by the knowledge that our experienced team have been working with similar partners in the public sector for many years.

Subsidised council publications including residents magazines, are one of the core services we offer. We provide a complete end-to-end service from advertising sales right through to design, print and even reliable distribution for every conceivable form of local and central government communication, but our services don’t stop there; we are able to offer full advertising sales and production service for:
