  • Some local guidelines: LatAm Brazil • A difficult market to audit in the traditional manner • Strong vested interests, so best conducted from outside Brazil using panel for quality and discount benchmarking for pricing Mexico • Strong media owner pressure • Pool and Panel benchmarking possible • Pool benchmarking and year on year benchmarks available according to need28
  • Some local guidelines: India • Strong inflationary pressure: advertising expenditure up 17% CAGR over 5 years; scope for further growth: adex as % of GDP only 50% world average • Channels multiplying, audience fragmentation • Influence of cricket (IPL) helping drive strength of TV, but multi-platform booming • Cost & Quality benchmarking is possible via Spatial Access owing to strong local and international client list • But it’s very expensive owing to scale of market (up to 8m spots!); treat as a region • Only economical for big budgets, year on year tracking a lower cost option29
  • Some local guidelines: China • Highly fragmented, multi-tiered media market: a region, not a country • Very opaque, hundreds of brokers, sub-contracting of media buying to third parties: more about risk management • Up to 50% of agency profitability estimated to be generated from media cashflow • Huge variables in buying costs (up to 500% on like-with-like basis) • Much bonus inventory, AVBs rife, commissions throughout system • Only significant pool auditor is China Media Consulting Group, who specialise in ‘following the money’ to explain pricing; strong local as well as international pool • Scale makes full benchmarking expensive30

  • To summarise • Media auditing in emerging markets requires a range of techniques • The chosen technique should be calibrated to the status of the maturity of the market • Pool and Panel ‘gold standard’ benchmarking is not possible to WFA standards in some markets, but bigger markets such as China and India are now more robust • Yearly improvement targeting available just about everywhere via relevant systems • A rigorous programme of measurement is possible everywhere35
