How We Started
Mediabids.com, the newspaper and magazine advertising marketplace, was founded in 1999 to allow print publications to broaden their market reach in a cost effective way while giving advertisers a web-based system to purchase print advertising in a competitive environment.
Since its online launch in 2003, Mediabids.com, based in Winsted, CT. has become the leading online print advertising marketplace, bringing together more than 4,500 publications and 10,000 businesses on its web site. Mediabids’ easy-to-use platform has attracted a wide range of users, from small sole proprietorships to large national corporations.
Mission and Vision
Mediabids aims to simplify and streamline the print advertising process by providing a website that both centralizes relevant publication information and provides tools that enable both buyers and sellers of ad space to conduct transactions more efficiently. Mediabids’ vision is that with these tools, advertisers will increasingly view newspapers and magazines as a choice medium to promote their products and services – thus allowing newspapers and magazines to continue to be a viable information and social resource for our communities.
