Media monitors don't know what they're letting themselves in for!
Media monitors don't know what they're letting themselves in for!

Media monitoring is not glamorous, it brings endless challenges and long hours - but I love it. When I look back to the days when we manually cut up newspapers and measured articles per centimetre with a ruler, recorded broadcast stations on VHS and Beta tapes all the way to the groundbreaking electronic systems we have today... It's easier, but it's still not easy. One does not simply turn on print and broadcast in a media monitoring company with a mere flick of a switch. Often our market doesn't realise the level of work involved in bringing accurate tracking. Quite frankly, media monitors don't know what they're letting themselves in for!
