Are you looking to bring a campaign to market and advertise across traditional or digital media? Marketing & Brand Management has partnered with RIESTER / MetricsEdge to connect University departments to experts who can help to develop a media strategy and place media on your behalf.

The partnership with RIESTER / MetricsEdge is designed to save campus time and money by providing these benefits:

  • There is no dollar limit on media placements contracted through this agency.
  • There is no need for an RFP (Request for Proposal) for campaigns under $25,000.
  • RIESTER / MetricsEdge has been trained on the University of Arizona brand and are in close contact with Central Marketing & Communications to maximize all departmental campaigns alongside one another.
  • Routing media buying services through this single partner enables RIESTER / MetricsEdge to balance simultaneous University of Arizona campaigns, minimizing bidding conflicts for keywords or out-of-home geographic saturation. Knowledge of multiple University of Arizona campaigns (including the master brand campaign) enables the agency to make more strategic placement recommendations.


While our contract with RIESTER / MetricsEdge is nonexclusive, this agency has been evaluated by central Marketing & Brand Management and judged to be superior for media buying expertise and ability to meet deadlines and price. Cumulative volume discounts are built into our contract with this vendor.
