City Model - the innovative agency roster

This post is by Darren Woolley, Founder of TrinityP3.

Recently there were two stories in the local trade press in Australia that caught my attention. Not because the issues were new, but that neither of the marketers offered a tangible solution to the problem they had identified.

First was David Morgan, CMO of Nestle's Oceania operation, bemoaning the fact that marketers spend so much time managing agency relationships that they have too little time left to do their job and that this has to change.

The second was Mark Buckman, CMO of Australia’s largest telecommunications and media company who was stating that the sixty year old P&G brand model needed to change for the always on, 24/7 world we live in and that agency structures need to change to accommodate the ‘newsroom’ approach to customer engagement.

5 principles of pitch management

This post is by Darren Woolley, Founder of TrinityP3.

At the ANA Advertising Financial Management Conference this year in Phoenix, Arizona, Dave Beals presented the latest findings from the ANA Agency Compensation Survey.

There are some really interesting findings here, especially in regards to the development of incentive models and performance-based bonuses. Thanks to the ANA I can share these with you.

So why change compensation?

Interestingly, there has been a shift in the motivations for changing agency compensation. In 2010 ‘Cutting Cost’ was the leading reason, which has been surpassed by ‘Improving Agency Performance’. Clearly marketers are discovering that you do always end up getting what you pay for. But then again, other reasons has doubled in the same time too.
