Who We Are

About Us

Connecting Cultures, Creating Success

GAROI Media is an advertising agency with over 20 years of top-tier marketing expertise. We value conducting data-driven research, forming trusted relationships, and employing creative omnichannel marketing strategies to meet and exceed campaign goals. We are always our clients’ advocates first and prioritize innovation when developing high-quality, custom-crafted advertising campaigns that outperform expectations. In other words, we get a return on investment.

Advertising is no longer about simply placing an ad on radio or TV. At GAROI Media, we understand that for you to get a return on investment, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to getting you seen and heard. Because of our demonstrated experience reaching diverse audiences, we know that you must look and sound like your audience. Our multicultural and trilingual (English, Spanish, Haitian Creole) team comes in here.

GAROI Media has our finger on the pulse of African-American, Caribbean, Haitian, and Latin communities in South Florida and beyond. What your audience wants, how they want it, and most importantly, how your brand needs to reach them through paid media is the cornerstone of what we do. From research, strategy, and creative development to implementation, we meet your audience where they are. How do we get it done? We have relationships with established media partners to get you in front of your audience while maximizing your budget.

Award Winning Agency

2023 Digital Marketing Campaign of the Year

transparent logo


I’ve had the good fortune of having worked with GAROI Media on a multitude of projects over the last few years, beginning during my time as Campaign Manager for a couple of top-tier progressive candidate campaigns. I was reintroduced to the excellent, wide ranging capabilities of GAROI Media in my role as Electoral Campaigns Director with New Florida Majority and Florida Rising, leading to the decision to engage her firm for the Win Justice-Florida For All campaign, one of the largest statewide independent expenditure campaigns of the 2020 election cycle, for which I served as Campaign Manager.

GAROI Media became our preferred advertising and digital agency because they make every effort, large or small, a priority. They are supremely professional, responsive, thoughtful, and creative, and they were directly responsible for the creative vision, polished execution, and strategic deployment of several of our most successful efforts. Working with Lasana Smith and GAROI Media is always a great pleasure. They have the ability to transform vague, unformed thoughts into authentic, relevant, and strategically effective advertising campaigns customized to suit our unique organizational perspective and voice. Their campaigns almost invariably exceed expectations and outperform industry heavyweight competitors. GAROI Media truly provides top notch customer service.

The Go Vote Miami 2020 Media Campaign engaged GAROI Media to help us inform local voters about the facts and myths surrounding the 2020 General Election so each vote would be counted. Lasana did a great job creating our digital ads, disseminating them on Google and informing those of us unfamiliar with the world of digital advertising. Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented and late-notice restrictions placed on Facebook and Instagram ads in October, we were unable to use those social media platforms. Nevertheless, it was a pleasure to work with Lasana and I highly recommend her digital advertising services!

I cannot say enough good things about GAROI Media. I worked with them during the 2020 election cycle in FL. I was the Digital Director for the one of the largest independent campaigns in the state. I always felt like a priority to GAROI media, and they did an excellent job of taking my vision and whatever budget I had to do whatever it took to hit the goal of the campaign. The team was an excellent thought partner on campaigns and were great at communicating expectations and needs.
