maximising returns in 2004

Views on the economic
outlook for 2004 / 05 are as diverse as the number of economic commentators.
Up, down, stay they same or keep on changing, here are some tips from
a marketing and advertising view point on ways to manage
your advertising budget
to achieve maximum value.

If the market goes
up…
While a buoyant
market expands sales opportunities, the associated advertising
costs can increase
as well, with greater demand on media availability
and production resources increasing rates.
Managing rate increases requires:
1. Ensuring a detailed and accurate reporting process
to monitor real costs against outcomes.
2. Creating or accessing cost benchmarks to measure the
increased cost against the potential revenue gain.
3. Ensuring longer term planning to provide marketers and agencies with
opportunities for negotiating more competitive rates.
4. Locking key suppliers into price agreements to avoid inflationary
pressures
.

If the market stays flat…
Depending on budget allocations, most advertisers are under
constant downward pressure
. Especially at a time when business
perceives marginal growth opportunities. Rather than being pressured,
this is an ideal time to take a proactive position on advertising
costs
and:
1. Review your advertising processes (especially briefing and approvals)
to ensure the most cost effective system is in place.
2. Identify opportunities within existing advertising collateral to leverage
greater longevity
(eg. refresh rather than renew an existing
campaign)
3. Calculate the costs associated with all elements of your advertising
program
and  prioritise each, taking into account the hidden
costs associated with cutting the activity.
4. Use the opportunity to review longer-term agreements, developing more
efficient and cost effective remuneration models
.

If the market fluctuates…
To take advantage of a fluctuating market requires the ability
to react tactically and strategically. The rapid
pace required to move with the market requires well-structured processes
and cost control systems to ensure cost effectiveness is maintained.
To ensure the marketing team and agency can focus on the task you should:
1. Develop both a long-term strategy and short-term tactical plans
up front.
2. Develop agreed and fixed cost remuneration to make
cost control and reporting more efficient.
3. Negotiate supplier agreements based on minimum volume
/ activity.
4. Ensure detailed briefing and approval processes
to minimise delays and mistakes.

P3 provides
advertisers with a range of independent and qualified services to achieve
greater value and cost effectiveness across all aspects of media and advertising

television production workshops
Confused on rollover talent
rates for TVCs? Wondering what those costs are on the TV estimate?
Looking to find better ways of managing the production process with
the agency and film company?

You are not alone. Television production is a complex and technical
aspect of advertising and often the single most expensive cost after
media. Therefore P3 is planning a half-day workshop in late March
to be held in Sydney and Melbourne.
If you are interested in attending, email your details to tv@p3.com.au  and we will send you further details
regarding the workshop.
