GROSS VALUE OF ADSPEND IN SLOVENIA IN 2016 HITS €1BN MARK
On Slovenia’s Marketing Magazine request, agency Mediana has prepared data on gross value of advertising in 2016, based on the data collected in the project Mediana IBO. The agency highlighted that the gross total value is based on all registered ads and prices from the official price lists, and did not take into account discounts, special sales conditions that are based on the reach of public or free publications. “Because of the business deals that are based on the public reach, secret discounts, ‘under the counter’ deals and free publications, it is impossible to estimate the real net value,” Irena Setinšek, CEO of Mediana wrote for the March issue of Marketing Magazine.
Here are a couple of highlights from the article in new issue of Marketing Magazine which will be published tomorrow, 28 February:
- Value of gross adspend in Slovenia in 2016 rose by 14 percent.
- With 80% share in gross total advertising spend, TV in Slovenia is miles ahead of all other media.
- Gross value of advertising in TV has grew by 19% compared to previous year.
- Advertisers had allocated 100 million euros gross for print media in 2016, which is almost the same as in 2015.
- There are no data on what percentage of adspend in Slovenia is intended for digital media, not even in gross amounts.
- 5 largest radio stations have a 3% share in the gross advertising spend.
- Investments in outdoor advertising and other advertising media are stable.
- The best advertisers are retailers, followed by telecom companies and automotive industry.

GET READY FOR A LOT MORE MID-ROLL ADS IN FACEBOOK VIDEOS
Facebook has expanded its trial of in-stream video ads beyond Facebook Live – reportedly even testing mid-roll ads in videos from publishers as it seeks to better monetize the video content on its platform.
According to Recode, Facebook is testing these ads with a small number of US publishers – letting publishers keep 55% of the revenue and retaining 45% for itself.
Per Recode, the video must run for at least 20 seconds prior to the first in-stream ad and additional ads must be at least two minutes apart.
The news comes after Facebook announced it was testing mid-roll ads within Facebook Live in August. These ads appear five minutes into live broadcasts and are 15 seconds or less.
Ad Breaks are available to US broadcasters, but Facebook said it hopes to eventually expand.
DEATH OF AN OGILVY PHILIPPINES EMPLOYEE SPARKS RENEWED DEBATE OVER WORK-LIFE BALANCE AT AGENCIES
A young brand strategist with Ogilvy & Mather Philippines died last weekend after purportedly working overtime while suffering from pneumonia.
Mark David Dehesa spent less than a year with the PR division of Ogilvy’s Manila office. He’d previously worked in accounts with Publicis, JWT and BBDO. His death last Sunday has already stoked the debate about work-life balance at agencies and overwork, a particularly contentious topic in Asia.
According to a former colleague, Dehesa worked through the early hours of the morning last Friday to prepare for a meeting then stayed in the office until late that evening before asking to be driven to the hospital, where he later died.
“Clients always ask for something good,” Ogilvy copywriter Jeff Stelton wrote in a Facebook post after learning of the employee’s death. “We do it almost to the point of martyrdom; sacrificing our time with our families, dates with our loved ones, but most importantly, our health.”
Stelton, who had worked with Dehesa in the past, continued: “But with the untimely passing of yet another young colleague, I feel like it’s time we say ‘no’ to this unnecessary martyrdom. It’s time to say no to getting up for a 9 a.m. presentation when you finished work at 4 in the morning.”
Others in the industry have expressed similar sentiments on Facebook.
PUBLICIS’ STARCOM WINS LOWE’S FIRST MEDIA AGENCY REVIEW IN 10 YEARS
Home improvement and appliance chain Lowe’s has chosen Starcom Worldwide as its new U.S. media agency of record after a five-month review.
The Publicis unit beat out Omnicom Media Group’s PHD and WPP’s Mindshare in the review, according to a source with direct knowledge of the matter. Incumbent OMD, which had handled the business since 2005, did not participate. BBDO remains the client’s creative agency of record.
According to Kantar Media, Lowe’s spent approximately $372 million on paid media in 2015 and $369 million from January to November of 2016. The review officially launched last September with global consultancy R3 managing the process.
