We partner with publishers, networks, independent producers and creative agencies to develop innovative content that lives across channels, and negotiate their placement.

As a Health & Wellness focused search team, we understand the unique needs within the landscape and how brands should holistically approach the space. Our ability to translate search interest and engagement into insights can be leveraged to develop content across all marketing channels, and connect people with the answers they seek.


It’s about the role of channels and how to orchestrate communications. Our media agnostic approach puts audience behavior at the center, to drive media mix thinking. Part art, part science, fully accountable.


Social isn’t new, the technology just enables peoples ideas and advice to go farther, faster. Its not about Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, it’s about human behavior that is the backbone of health information sharing, for physicians and consumers. We listen to audiences to get insights and activate crowds on behalf of our clients and their causes.


The business of buying media is changing quickly as ad technology fuels double digit growth in the programmatic space. With AOD Health, we are prepared to transform health and wellness to become one of the leading industries to harness the power and efficiency of audience targeting.


Big data can be a big nightmare unless you know what to do with it. Our team understands the value of upfront business planning and back end data analytics to truly demonstrate how media moves the needle, beyond clicks and impressions.
