About Q1Media

Q1Media was founded as a boutique digital media advertising agency in 2004. Our experience with advertisers and publishers has helped us create a Full Service Digital Marketing Suite that drives results for marketers. We develop the right audiences at scale, reach them via brand-safe quality ad placements, and provide real-time, actionable insights at our customer’s fingertips.

After more than a decade of growth, Q1Media has expanded its capabilities to meet the needs of today’s brand advertisers and marketers – rich first-party datasets, foot traffic attribution, you name it – all while fostering thousands of direct publisher relationships. More than ten years later and we are still innovating, still dedicated to driving better campaign results and insights, and still creating better opportunities for premium publishers.

Q1Media has been recognized several times for its financial success and culture, including three appearances on the Inc. 5000 list, once on the Forbes Most Promising Companies list, twice on Deloitte’s Fast 500 list and twice on the Austin Business Journal’s Fast 50 list.

In addition, we’ve been voted one of the best places to work in Texas by Texas Monthly, the Austin-American Statesman and The Austin Business Journal.
