The Independent Media Agencies of Australia (IMAA), the national, not-for-profit industry association for the independent media agency industry, has launched its own multi-channel ad campaign to promote the benefits of independent media agencies to companies and marketers.
The campaign will feature across radio, TV, out-of-home, digital and print channels, with partner organisations contributing more than $2 million of advertising support. The TVC for the campaign is yet to be released.
The campaign is focused on promoting the IMAA and the benefits of working with its members to businesses across the country. Visual assets feature elements of the association’s logo cleverly transformed to depict the letter A, because independent agencies “always bring their A team to the table”, a finger because “it’s always on the pulse”, a graph because they “want results as much as you do” and two hands to show the only agenda an IMAA agency has is “the meeting one.”
IMAA general manager, Sam Buchanan, said: “the IMAA is a body of advertising professionals, formed by the most respected independent media agencies in Australia. This campaign is about promoting the consolidated expertise and leadership our members can offer, and getting the indies front and centre for businesses looking to work with an elite group of advertising specialists.”
Independent media agency BCM created the campaign assets, with managing director Phil McDonald said: “independent media agencies aren’t just united by the fact we are Australian-owned and have an entrepreneurial spirit. We all have an agile mindset towards media; we have close relationships with the largest media owners in the country, and we all come at solving our clients’ biggest problems by always bringing senior people to the table. This campaign looks to summarise that, and asks potential clients to ensure they have an independent media option on the list when they are looking for a new media agency.”
The ad campaign comes on the back of the IMAA’s recently launched world-first trade credit insurance deal for members, with more group deals to be announced shortly.
The IMAA now boasts nearly 100 members, who receive a range of benefits including connection to a formalised network of industry leaders, a code of conduct, staff training, pitch support, IMAA certification and membership of the world’s largest independent agency network, thenetworkone.
The campaign will run for eight weeks nationally.
