PROGRAMMATIC TOWN HALL

Spending in programmatic buying (the automation of media buying and selling processes and decisions, enhanced through data) continues to grow.  Programmatic buying offers many benefits, including better targeting and real-time optimization.  However, there are significant challenges such as bot fraud, viewability issues, and lack of transparency.  Transparency issues include lack of inventory transparency, lack of transparency regarding the costs within the programmatic supply chain, lack of data transparency, and not knowing if the agency is making money from the media sellers on the client’s buy.  The ANA Media Transparency Task Force performed a deep dive on programmatic buying as a follow-up to its work on rebates.  Just recently, ANA and Forrester Research surveyed members on their use and perspective of programmatic buying.  This programmatic town hall will highlight recent ANA learning on programmatic buying then transition into an open discussion to get the input of conference attendees.

OPENING REMARKS: MEDIA’S “BIG FOUR” CONCERNS

The media industry is plagued by the shaky foundation of technology.  While technology has catapulted the industry's ability to increase efficiencies and consumer targeting, it has also left us extraordinarily vulnerable.  Technology has given rise to the "big four" of generally interrelated concerns that threaten the underpinning of digital marketing and sub-optimize the financial investments of marketers: 

  • Ad blocking
  • Ad fraud
  • Media transparency
  • Viewability/measurement

THE LANGUAGE AND BEHAVIORS OF BRAND LOVE AND PROFITABLE GROWTH

It’s the stereotypical wrangle: marketing overemphasizes creativity, finance fixates on cost, and the conversation grinds on from there. In this keynote presentation, Jeff Jones, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Target, will lead the discussion about how marketing hasn’t done enough to earn its seat at the proverbial table, relying too much on vague, intangible concepts like branding. At the same time, finance can stifle growth and innovation through fear, false precision, and a focus on cutting costs rather than adding value. Drawing on 25 years of experience leading marketing teams and creative organizations in startups and Fortune 40 organizations, Jeff will provide insight into how Target achieves brand love and profitable growth through common purpose, partnership, and mutual respect for functional expertise.

THE RISE OF MARKETING TECH

Digital ad tech has had a great run, as ad servers delivered, counted, and retargeted trillions of impressions to audiences who were “cookied”, analyzed, segmented, and resold. However, the power in the media and marketing world is shifting from serving intermediaries to serving principals, from delivering media outputs for agencies to guaranteeing business outcomes for marketers, from serving agency trading desks to serving marketer enterprises. Unfortunately, most ad tech today is anchored on the wrong side of those shifts. Hence, the rise of marketing tech — the intersection of marketing and technology.  According to Dave Morgan, over the next five years we will see ad tech supplanted by technology and companies that directly serve marketers and their enterprises.  Marketers will benefit from speed, greater control over their consumer relationships, and increased safety of their proprietary data.  Learn how to prepare your company for the rise of marketing tech.

TRENDS IN AGENCY/CLIENT ENGAGEMENT

While media has been in a state of major reinvention for years, the way clients engage with their agencies has been slower to evolve. Change is now the only option. Clients are working with multiple partners because one agency cannot meet all communication needs. Project work is increasing as clients engage more-specialized partners for shorter periods of time. In a zero-based budgeting world, cost pressures are relentless and fee budgets must go further than ever before. The partners that are proving their value to clients range from traditional and specialized agencies to production partners, media partners, digital partners, even consumers themselves. Managing the complexity has never been more challenging. In this session, Mondelēz International shares its response to the shift, learning along the way, and why it is so important for clients to lead the change.

THE NEW CMO MANDATE

While marketers remain responsible for their brands, they no longer control them. Unscripted, multi-channel conversations have forever altered the marketing landscape and the role of the CMO. In this session, Diana O’Brien, chief marketing officer at Deloitte, will discuss this evolving role and the opportunity it creates for marketers to enhance their influence in the C-suite, demonstrate ROI, and relay the value marketing brings to the organization. In the context of the greater change taking place in the marketing world, she will also address the need to trust, inspire, and empower the new “brand ambassadors” — employees, clients, and stakeholders — to fuel authentic conversations about their organizations.  She will draw upon her experiences at Deloitte, where her key priorities are building the firm’s reputation, developing stronger client insight and relationships, innovating marketing approaches, and fostering business growth.

In a world where client-agency relationships are becoming more frayed, less transparent, and tougher to evaluate, this session will unveil a relationship model based on the client rewarding the agency only when its business achieves key financial targets.  Mutual success is dependent upon the client sharing complete business information and both client and agency working in partnership on all aspects of the business, well beyond simply developing marketing communications.

WINNING IN TODAY'S MASSIVELY FRAGMENTED VENDOR ECOSYSTEM

The marketing technology landscape is more fragmented and crowded than ever, and your organization is spending dollars and energy in research and discovery in an effort to separate the signal from the noise.  However, as people and teams in the marketing organization are distributed by brand, function, geography and more, it is incredibly difficult to ensure that the knowledge an individual or team gains about a vendor or a category can be an asset that others in the organization can tap into over time. Often this key knowledge lives in an individual’s brain or email inbox dictating that the next person or team to look into a category will have to start from scratch.  Matt Karasick from Glassnetic will offer his perspective on how marketing organizations can win in today’s fragmented ecosystem.

MEMBERS-ONLY DEEP DIVE (open to client-side marketers only)

In this members-only deep dive, the ANA’s East and West Coast Advertising Financial Management Committee chairs will facilitate a session allowing ANA members to discuss issues and share insights and best practices on various topics of interest or concern. The chairs will start by examining novel, different, and more effective/efficient agency models and types. Another topic that scored high on the pre-conference survey of members was measuring marketing procurement’s effectiveness and progress. This forum will allow for members to raise additional issues, or share best practices, to take full advantage of the largest annual assembly of members of both Advertising Financial Management Committees. Come prepared to participate in a dynamic session.

MADISON AVENUE MANSLAUGHTER

Ad agency people — the Mad Men of yesteryear — put on a brave face today, struggling with increasing workloads and demanding clients, and feel like players on a losing team, unable to break out or at least pull even with their clients as respected, secure partners. What has happened over the past few decades to bring this about? In this session, Michael Farmer, chairman of Farmer & Co., will explore how remuneration changes, globalization, holding company ownership, the concept of “shareholder value,” and the new digital and social media brought about a decline in the fortunes of today’s advertising agencies. He will also offer key insights about how agency health can be restored, turning around industry trends, and strengthening agency-client partnerships to solve today’s complex marketing problems.

AGENCY REVIEWS FOR PROJECT WORK

Project assignments are on the rise.  Unlike AOR work, project assignments are limited in time and scope and are usually driven by a need to address a defined business opportunity.  While best practices for conducting an agency search for an AOR are well documented, agency reviews for project work did not have a similar guidance tool until now.  The success of the selection process, the quality of the work, and the relationship are maximized when both sides enter discussions with thoughtful and deliberate consideration of their own needs and that of their prospective partners and a clear assessment of the opportunity and the options.  The ANA and the 4A’s have collaborated to provide both clients and agencies with considerations to help optimize the review process.  Done well, project work can be an efficient way for clients to find new resources and for agencies to find new business opportunities.

PROCURING CELEBRITY TALENT

The use of celebrity talent in marketing campaigns has increased dramatically as more A-list celebrities are being paid millions of dollars for their likeness and in some cases “creativity.” Further, the definition of celebrity has expanded beyond Hollywood and the sporting world to now include “YouTube personalities.” This session will discuss best practices for procuring celebrity talent and address areas including: identifying the right talent, ensuring usage for digital and social content as well as appearances, SAG considerations, and paying the right amount for a celebrity.
