Media agency health check

When business is going well, you tend to get complacent and not to stop to review what and how you are doing.

Kinesis Media believe that the best time to take stock of a relationship is in fact when things are going well. This way, when challenges or a crisis do arise, you know you are well equipped and correctly structured to handle it.

Kinesis Media has conducted several “media agency health checks” where the relationship was strong, but small issues were arising that had the potential to turn into major issues. Identifying and resolving issues early on strengthens your relationships and benefits all parties.

Our team’s industry knowledge and experience enables us to get to the core of the issue/s quickly and without causing disruption on either side. We know the industry inside out, meaning we can ask the right questions from the start.

Our review covers the core business services within your media agency partner, including strategic capability and thinking, trading transparency and rate delivery, corporate governance, remuneration, digital integration and capability, people and future proofing initiatives.

On top of the standard categories we cover, we can accommodated any specific concerns you have or that you think warrant closer review.

At Kinesis Media, we believe that conducting a media agency health check is a far better first step, and indeed ongoing process to adopt, than automatically calling for a competitive media agency pitch. A health check saves you time, reduces disruption and helps strengthen the relationship between client and media agency.

  6. Kinesis was appointed by YUM Restaurants (owner of KFC and Pizza Hut) in mid 2009 to review its media effectiveness, spend efficiency and relationship with our media agencies. Kinesis managed the process in a timely and very professional way by engaging both us and the agencies in a fair and transparent process

    Pedro DeMartini, KFC Marketing Director (2008-2010), YUM Restaurants

  7. We were very happy with the outcomes of the project which led to an improvement in how YUM managed its media to create better effectiveness and efficiency through a more transparent and relationship driven process. I strongly recommend Kinesis Media for any media related project

    Pedro DeMartini, KFC Marketing Director (2008-2010), YUM Restaurants

  8. Their unique skills and intimate knowledge of the media industry enables Kinesis to create a bespoke process that can address the most challenging of tasks that arise within the client/ agency relationship

    Pedro DeMartini, KFC Marketing Director (2008-2010), YUM Restaurants

  9. PwC and Kinesis Media have recently completed an extensive and complex sales strategy review for SBS Corporation. They were jointly commissioned because of their complementary skill sets: PwC’s core skills in strategic consulting and its broad media industry knowledge, and Kinesis Media’s unique perspective and understanding of media agencies’ structures, trading processes and relationships with media owners.
    This combination of skills, knowledge and experience gave the project substance and a level of insight that would have otherwise been difficult to achieve.

    David Wiadrowski, Partner, PriceWaterhouseCoopers

  10. The thorough approach taken by Kinesis Media, particularly in the area of process, principles and term sheets underlined the background experience of this team provided with order, methodology and clarity into the very complex world of media planning and buying.

    Garry Browne, CEO/ Managing Director, Stuart Alexander & Co Pty Ltd

  11. With the complexities surrounding media, you need somebody on board with the depth of media knowledge to assist. We don’t know what we don’t know…. Kinesis Media were able to apply their media agency understanding of the complex processes and agency deliverables for the NRMA, and work alongside our lawyers to provide valuable advice during the contract negotiations and guide them to ensure a successful and commercial outcome.

    Rene van der Loos, General Manager Marketing, NRMA Motoring & Services NSW

  12. Kinesis led us through a staged gate process commencing with a Heath Check of our agency process, costings and relationship. Both agency and ourselves came to the realisation that there were quick wins to be had by doing things smarter on both sides. Clearly their depth of questioning was outside our scope of knowledge as marketers, and quite revealing, that would no doubt contribute to a stronger relationship and brand results.

    Jane Wyatt, Director - Nutricia Products and Services Baby Nutrition Division ANZ, Nutricia - Danone Baby Nutrition

  13. Kinesis lead our business units through a thorough and fast pitch process resulting in an "all sisterhood" aligned agency appointment with increased market leverage, strategic power, plus value adds in product & people.

    Jane Wyatt, Director - Nutricia Products and Services Baby Nutrition Division ANZ, Nutricia - Danone Baby Nutrition

  14. I am confident we would not have got a quarter of the impact without their depth of industry knowledge, rich process and ability to act neutral to deliver a balanced a middle ground of win:win. I highly recommend Kinesis, and look forward to working with them further in 2011.

    Jane Wyatt, Director - Nutricia Products and Services Baby Nutrition Division ANZ, Nutricia - Danone Baby Nutrition

  15. Working with Kinesis has really helped ignite our business. Having some of the best industry leaders and thinkers from Kinesis on our team gives us a competitive advantage and is setting the platform for powerful growth.
