MEDIA WEEK: The Year Ahead For…Media agencies
LONDON – While the future rarely lets us assume anything, network forecasts predict little improvement in market conditions in 2013. Europe is unlikely to be driving much of what little growth we will experience. Many of our clients will find this year a challenging one. The onus will be on us as their agencies to help them find positives amid the pessimism.
When times are tough, it’s tempting to revert to tried-and-tested formulas. But doing the same thing on a reduced budget rarely succeeds. Ploughing budget back into old ways of using TV, for example, will not solve new business challenges. Instead, we need to help our clients succeed in a risk-averse environment. We must build compelling reasons for them to try different things and help them manage the risks involved. http://www.mediaweek.co.uk/news/bulletin/mediaam/article/1165836/?DCMP=EMC-CONMediaAMBulletin
