Realtime Media. We are a strategic promotions firm that builds consumer insights for brands by engaging customers across web, social and mobile.

Promotions have continuingly evolved — from customer acquisition, to social media growth, to customer engagement, to now, the acquisition of consumer data.

Our proprietary and tailored solutions — including sweepstakes, instant-win games, contests and loyalty campaigns — have helped our clients move beyond awareness to drive acquisition, repeat engagement, deep branding experiences, and loyalty.

Realtime REV unlocks the power of promotions by providing actionable data well beyond a name and email address.
Realtime REV is a proprietary platform that marries the consumer’s path to the promotion with both the data revealed during the promotion (demographic, behavioral and social), and the consumer’s path through your site after the promotion. This data allows us to help you build rich individual profiles in the database, and broad learnings through an interactive dashboard that graphically represents the drivers of marketing programs and segmentation.
"Realtime REV helped me get beyond the number of impressions and opt-ins, to a level of understanding my consumer and their interaction with our brand and online presence."

— Keith H. Scott, Brand Manager - Sterling Vineyards & Chalone Vineyard, Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines

3/22/13 — Realtime Media, the Bryn Mawr firm owned by onetime Inquirer publisher Brian Tierney's Brian Communications (with backing from Radnor-based NewSpring Ventures), is helping magazine publisher Hearst Communications, publisher of Cosmpolitan, Esquire and other magazines, to target smartphone users for in-store prize awards.


3/21/13 — For years, publishers could count on bored shoppers waiting in the checkout line to pick up a magazine, get engrossed in an article, and toss it into their cart alongside the milk and eggs. Then came “mobile blinders.” These days, consumers are more likely to send a quick text and check their Facebook feed than to read a magazine or develop a momentary craving for the gum or candy on display. That has spurred companies such as Hearst Corp. and the Coca-Cola Co. (KO) to reconsider how they showcase their wares in supermarkets.


9/20/12 — It’s a lot easier to daydream about a great workplace moment, or what’s being said at the launch party, than to imagine the next thing you should do. Use that to your advantage.
