  1. 1. MBc Mission ~ ~ To be the essential source of comprehensive advertising solutions for our clients ~ By actively educating our clients in all areas of production and agency compensation, we allow you to position yourselves to be more competitive, reduce costs and further leverage your creative. As an extension of the marketing team, MBc manages the production of all advertising from the pre-bid phase through final invoicing/job completion. This includes negotiating all costs with the agencies, defining the production process and providing pro-active industry advice on all production needs. The Basic Facts ~ MBc Services was founded in 2006 by Michelle Stern to provide comprehensive advertising solutions for major corporate advertisers and non-profits. Our goal is not only to save our clients money, but to deliver to you the pertinent and compelling information you would expect from industry experts. We focus on constantly looking for ways to produce quality work at a fair price. We have a solid reputation in the industry and outstanding business relationships with our clients as well as numerous advertising agencies and vendors. We are affiliated with a network of resources around the country. Our involvement is self–sustaining as MBc’s fee is sourced from the savings achieved through our participation in your advertising production process.

Agency Contract Reviews and Fee Negotiations - Our overall objective is to develop a fair compensation methodology, compensation level and implementation process that align your priorities and interests with those of your advertising agency and its sub-vendors. After reviewing the existing agency compensation agreement we will: • Develop a negotiation strategy utilizing the findings from our compensation assessment (including examining the agency staffing plans). • Create a comparison of rates and markups to industry standards. • Make recommendations and negotiate a fair compensation level for your agency. • Review the proposed agency contract language and recommend contract content based on best practices. • Summarize all changes, modifications and revisions, and quantify savings as a result of our recommendations.
