principle & model

TEC provides products and services to the media by way of barter and makes margins on those sales.

These margins enable the advertiser's stock to be revalued.

The space provided by TEC, in agreement with the media, is included in the plan drawn up by the agency and approved by the advertiser.

In general, the amount which can be handled by TEC represents between 10% and 20% of the media budget.

Depending on the theoretical media plan and by comparison with year N - 1, TEC may provide a revaluation within 24/48 hours.

In accordance with the agency's media plan, TEC provides part of the advertising space.

You can use your media credits (barter) to pay the amount of advertising space which is handled by TEC or receive a cash payment for your stock as to 40% of that same amount.

The advertiser uses its media credits (barter) or the 100% cash option on the amount which is handled by TEC.

TEC pays up to 40% of this amount for the stock, in cash.
