White Papers

Over the course of the last five years, as part of our role as an independent adviser on marketing management, TrinityP3 has contributed to the cause with numerous articles, podcastswebinars, newsletters and blog posts.

But the purpose of our TrinityP3 White Paper is to bring together, under one ‘roof’, a selection of work dealing with specific topical issues facing marketing, media, advertising and marketing procurement.

We hope you find these White Papers useful, and we welcome any feedback.

Here, we look at how the ‘great divides’ are being broken down within leading organisations to overcome duplication of time and effort, speed up go-to-market activity, and ultimately help improve marketing performance.

The Media Rebate and Transparency Crisis
The recent K2 report on media transparency and rebates commissioned by the US-based ANA (Association of National Advertisers) has articulated what we have observed in APAC and especially Australia for the past four years or more.

It has literally been like watching a train wreck in slow-motion. My recent claims of conflict within the AANA (Australian Association of National Advertisers) are driven by frustration over the continued lack of action on this matter, considering we have seen it coming since 2012. But in fact, it all started before then with the GFC.

Improving the search and selection process to get the right agency. Studies in recent years have discussed the factors that drive clients to terminate their relationship with their advertising or communications agency.

These factors often form the determinants when clients are searching for and selecting a new agency.
