Drowning in Marketing Deliverables

Ad agencies are drowning in deliverables. Scopes of Work are out of control. Advertisers are experimenting, experimenting, experimenting with out-of-scope digital and social deliverables, and agencies are overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to get out the door on a daily basis.

Is your digital media spend helping your business, your agency or both?

These days, it’s a fairly well established fact that, on the whole, your media agency generates a bigger margin from buying your digital media for you, than it does from buying other ‘offline channels’. There are a number of potential reasons for this. Higher up-front commissions as a proportion of expenditure. Mark-ups on low-unit, high volume incidental services such as ad-serving. Mark ups on other parts of the ‘technology stack’ used to trade digital inventory. Undisclosed mark-ups on the value of inventory. Continue reading

APAC advertisers can no longer ignore the issues of media agency transparency

With reports last week of over-charging of digital media by the Dentsu Aegis Network, with one of their most significant and longest-standing clients, Toyota Motor Corporation of Japan, advertisers across the region need to reflect on their own media agency arrangements rather than to continue to ignore the issue thinking it is an isolated issue or one for the USA alone.

How to align your digital marketing to marketing

Welcome everybody this afternoon to this one hour Webinar. As the title says we are going to focus on aligning digital marketing funnily enough to marketing, which is a hot topic that everyone is talking about in terms of digital marketing and what’s its role and when we talk to clients we actually say “it’s not about digital marketing, it’s about aligning digital to marketing”. I’m going to take you through a series of examples and talk a little bit about some of the findings that we’ve had with specific clients. So the digital big bang, we know the world’s gone digital, those of us that worked in marketing in the 90’s saw the rise of digital. We saw social media come on in 2005 and now it’s just exploding. I won’t go through this chart in detail but you know probably as well as I do that it’s very technology driven. Continue reading
