ANA Publishes Guidebook for Agency Compensation

ANA Publishes Guidebook for Agency Compensation
Book available for purchase now through ANA

New York, NY - A new comprehensive guidebook to provide marketing and advertising managers with insight into structuring, negotiating, and managing agency compensation has been published by the ANA (Association of National Advertisers). 

The third edition, Agency Compensation: An ANA Guidebook, authored by David Beals, president and CEO of Jones Lundin Beals, is the first update to the guidebook since 2001. Much of the media landscape and thus many aspects of the agency compensation arena have changed since then.  Major developments since the last publication of this guidebook include:

This newly revamped edition of the guidebook refers to all marketing communications services and the compensation of the agencies that provide them. Additional topics and issues addressed by this guidebook include:

"This guidebook is intended to help marketers arrive at a compensation approach that creates a mutual advantage for both advertisers and their agencies," said Bob Liodice, ANA President and CEO.  "The best agency compensation agreements are decided on mutually and serve both the client and agency.  Any compensation agreement that works to the disadvantage of either party will eventually work to the disadvantage of both parties."

"With the variety and diversity of today's agency services and compensation options, proper planning is crucial for both the client and their agency. An aim of this guidebook is to assist marketers in the consideration of the options and to help them arrive at the compensation approach that best promotes the value in their agency relationships," said Beals.

Agency Compensation: An ANA Guidebook, authored by David Beals, is available for purchase now for $250 at www.ana.net/ebooks.
