Over the past six years, Astus UK has secured media space for companies across the publishing, motoring, retail, FMCG, travel, electrical and alcohol sectors in return for: * 2,500,000 tubes of toothpaste * 2,000,000 chocolate balls * 1,000,000 bottles of beer * 750,000 hardback books * 500,000 biro pens * 50,000 hair appliances * 10,000 pairs of incontinence pants * 2,500 ovens and hobs * 1,000 porcelain dinner services * 258 cars and commercial vehicles “We make advertising more affordable by letting clients part pay for it with their own products or services,” explained co-founder Dickens, when we interviewed her as part of our Hot 100 feature earlier this year.
