I. COLUMBIA RECORDS: THE POWER OF MUSIC IN ADS - IS THERE AN ROI? (9:45-10:45AM)
In advertising, music is often used to establish a rich emotional connection to consumers. However, that subjective measure is often difficult to quantify as it's seen as an incremental cost versus a tool that can help drive incremental sales, create media savings, or deliver greater social media reach. This presentation will look at some hard data to put structure around a very unstructured medium.
Elliot Lum, Vice President, Strategic Marketing, Columbia Records, Division of Sony Music

This session will showcase the recent work of the ANA Procurement Task Force, whose mission is to define and elevate the role of marketing procurement as well as close the gaps on the value of procurement between procurement and internal marketing as well as procurement and external agencies. Our 2013 Procurement Value Metrics Survey identifies the metrics used to measure the success/contribution of the marketing procurement organization and concludes that marketing procurement must evolve from a tactical to a more strategic role.
