IPA explores true Value of Media
The survey forms the first part of the IPA’s comprehensive Know the Value of Media project to help C-suite business leaders understand the impact of the increasingly complex media communications eco-system and to explain the role media agencies can play in today’s business world.
View the key findings and see the accompanying infographic below.
In addition to the survey, the project consists of three free and invaluable Know the Value of Media reports, written by industry experts, which will be published over the next six weeks. The project will culminate in a free debate on 13th November, to be hosted by Google and featuring Nick Blunden of The Economist.
Says Tom George, IPA MFG and Chairman, MEC UK and Northern Europe: “Media is the engine that can drive the multi-functional, cross-functional workings of the modern-day enterprise and help drive long-term shareholder value. This being so, it is also apparent that media is no longer the preserve of sales and marketing, but needs to be valued, embraced and understood across the organisation. It also is imperative that advertisers look on media as an investment, not a cost. Getting it right, however, isn’t easy which is why I encourage as many clients, agencies and media owners to read the IPA’s Know the Value of Media survey and papers and join us at the debate in November.”
