At Buddy Media, we approach challenges with results-first strategies that drive returns
After more than a decade of watching overstretched Brand Managers lose time, money, and energy on campaigns that fail to deliver, we’ve connected the dots on the complex network that makes up student marketing. Buddy Media alleviates the frustrations and workload of directors like you.
Students are what we know and love.
The Buddy Media team has been strategically integrated into the student market for 10 years. We’ve worked with every partner in the student space including universities, student media networks, influencers, union societies and groups. We’ve tracked their strengths and weaknesses. We know what’s fake vs. what’s real. In short, we’ve vetted them, so you don’t have to.
At Buddy Media, the philosophy is simple: always deliver.
That means you see real results, with every campaign we design and execute. We deliver on direct-response focused KPIs, supported by meaningful engagement and genuine connections that boost your bottom line.
We challenge you to find the energy and drive of Buddy Media anywhere else.
Our team actively manages and coordinates the right people for the partnerships whilst eliminating your stress, saving time, and maximising budgets. Meanwhile, you get the confidence of knowing you’re delivering on your campaigns because you’ve got an expert team behind you.

A note from our founder…
Hey — I’m Sam. My entire career has revolved around finding unique and engaging ways to connect with students globally.
Prior to starting Buddy Media, I was a founding member of one of the largest student marketing agencies in the U.K., then built the global infrastructure of a leading social agency and successfully expanded it into three countries.
I’ve always been a connector. Growing up in a close-knit coastal surfing village in Cornwall, England, my life is defined by the people in it and how I can help them both personally and professionally.
Having overcome many challenges myself, I’m passionate about providing great experiences and genuine interactions for young adults at a time when they’re both the most independent and dependent they can be.
When I’m not working? I love to travel and escape to the ocean for a surf whenever possible.
