“dig for answers and troubleshoot to solve problems”
It’s been a pleasure working with the Advance Media New York team. They’re always ready and willing to take on new challenges that we entrust them with. I continue to see them dig for answers and troubleshoot to solve problems on a daily basis. Since working with Chris Fedor and his team, I’ve been pleasantly satisfied by their performance and attitude as a marketing agency. It continues to excite us that their mentality is all about being a team player when working to plan new projects and continuously ask questions or get secondary advice. This “same level” playing field relationship differentiates what they bring to the table, and we’re so thankful that we have them as an extended resource.
Chris is a vital asset to the Advance Media New York team. His professionally warm approach when working with clients brings a sense of calm to the, at times, chaotic work of marketing. Whether it’s a recap of “What’s been going on other than the nice weather?” or a quick reply getting to the nuts-and-bolts of an email, there is always a conclusion that is met. This style of account management is crucial when an internal marketing team is looking for answers or advice. Chris is also seasoned to speak to many different strategic areas among the many platforms and channels of marketing today. His consultation is from his own marketing experience or a down-to-earth response that explains his need to rely on his expert team members for further consultation. This makes him, as a marketing consultant, trustworthy and fresh, when managing across multiple clientele.

“… our airport clients have complete and well-planned digital media strategies”
“I have had the privilege of working with Christina Cole, our account manager with Advance Media New York for over two years. I started working with Christina when we were looking for a digital advertising company to assist an airport client in Upstate New York. Following the success of the program, our company began to utilize Christina and her team with multiple airport clients, throughout the country.
Christina has always shown both expertise and professional integrity when working with our clients and helping us to expand their marketing efforts. From initial client proposals to the actual programs to the follow-up reporting, each product Christina and her team produce have been well received by our clients and extremely helpful in ensuring their airport marketing programs are successful.
I have since changed employers, but still work in aviation marketing consulting. Our new firm has full confidence in the Advance Media New York programs and expertise and has quickly been able to continue that relationship and ensure our airport clients have complete and well-planned digital media strategies.”

“Traffic to our site increased and our brand recognition has grown measurably”
“A world leader in RF and wireless technology, Anaren recently acquired and re-launched a product line that remotely monitors temperature-critical assets and equipment in applications like restaurants, pharmacies, hospitals, among many other settings. While we are headquartered in Syracuse, nearly all our business and all of customers are located elsewhere in the US or around the globe. So, when it came time to invest our advertising dollars in this new product line, it did not occur to us to reach out to the Advance Media New York – who we mistakenly perceived as being locally or regionally focused in terms of reach and capabilities.
Fortunately for Anaren and the folks at Advance Media New York, we kept an open mind when they gave us their capabilities presentation, which — through their association with the Advance Digital network – included a wide and compelling range of digital advertising tactics we could use to get our messaging out, across both B2B and consumer media. As a result, we invested some of our resources with Advance Media New York. We found them knowledgeable and very easy to work with. And the display ads, pre-roll video, and responsive rich media they helped us create and place were quite effective in reaching and engaging audiences that mattered to us. As a consequence, traffic to our site increased and our brand recognition has grown measurably in the geographies and business types we targeted with our campaign…all of which were well outside of the Syracuse/CNY area.”
