Connecting brands to opportunity in Africa

Established in 2016, Turn Left Media is an independent, boutique digital media sales house. Our mission is to help African brands connect to, and build, economic opportunities. We do this by making it easier for brands to engage with their key stakeholders, be it clients, employees, or stakeholders on key, niche digital platforms. Focused on representing only the best in digital platforms Turn Left Media exclusively represents LinkedIn, the world’s’ largest professional social network.

Recognizing our commitment to the professional network, in 2019, LinkedIn awarded Turn Left Media the Partner Champion Award, surpassing 34 other markets in embodying the LinkedIn ethos.

We are Africa

Turn Left Media is an African-first business. We believe that Africa contains all the economic opportunities needed to uplift the continent. As such, our mission to connect these opportunities carries even more weight. We have a deep understanding of the unique challenges and opportunities; our beautiful continent offers. Our team of over 20+ individuals focuses on driving tailored, localized solutions to each of the markets in which we operate. Turn Left Media, to date, has a presence in South Africa, through offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg, as well as offices in Kenya and Nigeria, with more to follow.

For Publishers

Turn Left Media offers a unique and highly focused business model for our partners. Dubbed “The Goldilocks Effect, not too big, or too small, just right” our team of senior business leaders have distilled the unique business solution that allows niche, high-value brands to flourish on the continent. Our teams of experts will enable us to be involved very early from a strategic level with our advertising partners. We believe our social power in the market allows us to introduce new media offerings and opportunities, in a trust-based relationship with the brands with which we choose to work.

Why work with us

Each brand in our collective is managed by a dedicated team of experts, headed up by a commercial channel manager. Each member understands the platform better than the brand itself and offers clients dedication and support.

We do not charge our clients any additional mark-ups. This means that clients pay the same as they would through self-managed services, and all pricing is completely transparent. We also offer unique creative and content services, together with strategy generation, to help our clients understand B2B and high-value B2C.
