  3. 3. Preface First advertising agency was established in Karachi in 1953. Today there are more than 300 advertising agencies throughout the country. Pakistan Advertising Association was formed for sustainable progress of advertising industry with special focus on human resources development. Ad agencies are still perceived as commission agents of print and electronic media. They are not recognized yet as change catalyst. Advertising employees do not enjoy social security and old age benefits. This insecurity has damaged creativity and quality of work. No Pakistani has achieved yet Ogilvy Award. For increasing advertising services exports, there is need of Pakistan Advertising Federation. Hopefully policy makers and working adpersons would get up and stand for their rights. Advertising Industry More than 250 advertising agencies working in Pakistan employ over 2000 advertising workers. More than 200 MBAs are serving the industry. Ad agencies usually get commission from newspapers, TV and Radio channels. Latest information about ad agencies and suspended agencies can be had from websites of APNS and PBA.
  4. 4. Income Disparity There is huge wealth and income difference between media workers (journalists) and advertising workers. No advertising worker gets grants for marriage and house building. Ninety percent adpersons are registered with EOBI. This insecurity adversely affects communication, creativity and quality. Ad Services Exports Advertising services exports of Pakistan were meager in 2011 and 2012. Exact information can be had from website of TDAP.
  5. 5. Neglected Regions There are few leading advertising agencies of Pakistan having branch offices in FATA, Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Kashmir and Baluchistan. Media buying houses and ad agencies like Adcom, Lowe & Rauf, Manhattan Leo Burnett and Synergy must have branch offices in FATA, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir to measure outreach campaigns of National AIDS Control Program and Polio Eradication Program. Missed Opportunities Advertising agencies could not develop marketing campaigns for 220 registered political parties in general elections 2013. They missed advertising business of Rs.6 to 8 billion (US$ 50 Million).
  6. 6. Intl Opportunities China, Hong Kong, UAE and America enjoy well developed advertising industries. They require ad professionals with right mix of skills. Digital advertising and native advertising are growing worldwide. USA requires about 200,000 ad professionals knowing statistical research techniques. Pakistani adpersons have good knowledge of English and Arabic besides technical communication skills. Foreign affiliated ad agencies like Orient Dentsu and Spectrum DYR do not prepare adpersons for international markets. Advertising Volume

  21. 21. Integrated Support Mobilization Pakistan Business Associations Institutions of Government of Pakistan International Donor Agencies One United Nations Programme
  22. 22. Donor Agencies Donors have been taking active part in socio-economic development of Pakistan. Fifteen to twenty percent mass communication annual expenditure by beneficiaries must be made mandatory. JETRO, USAID, AKDN, NorAID, JICA, DAI and DFID are requested to endorse proposed programs and approve start-up grant for establishing Pakistan Advertising Foundation in 2013 or 2014. One UN Programme United Nations have been taking active part in socio-economic development of Pakistan through OP I and OP II. Besides 15% to 20% spending on mass communication annually, ILO, UNDP, UNIDO, UNOPS, UNCTAD, UNODC and UN Women are requested to approve start-up grant for establishing Pakistan Advertising Foundation in 2013.
  23. 23. Top 5 Pakistani Ad Agencies Advertising agencies are well aware of their corporate social responsibility. Adcom, IAL Saatchi & Saatchi, Interflow Communications, JWT Pakistan and Lowe & Rauf are requested to help establishing Pakistan Advertising Foundation in 2013. Outdoor Media Development Outdoor media has got tremendous significance but there are no uniform advertising rates of outdoor media throughout the country. Pakistan Advertising Foundation will develop tariff rate in collaboration with outdoor media owners and marketers.
  24. 24. CMC Agencies Grassroots level communication is the real test of marketing and advertising. Literacy level, particularly female, is very low in far flung rural areas of country. Female literacy level is 1.8% in Frontier Region Tank. Pakistan Advertising Foundation will encourage entrepreneurs to establish countryside-message- circulation agencies for effective communication. Ad Services Exports Intl Demand Supply oDesk Pak Advertising Agencies Advertising agencies of Pakistan should contact oDesk Corporation to export their services. They must hire services of Total Quality Management (TQM) consultants, experts and professionals.
  25. 25. Digital Adv Development SMS Advertising and Mass Email Advertising have got tremendous significance but there are no uniform advertising rates of digital advertising firms throughout the country. Pakistan Advertising Foundation will develop tariff rate in collaboration with digital marketing companies’ owners and marketers. Benefits to Ad Agencies  Expansion of advertising industry in neglected areas  More job opportunities for youth of country  Affiliation with international ad agencies will be easier  ISO-9000 certification
  26. 26. Jobs Creation Male & Female
  27. 27. Economic Benefits of PAF Pakistan Advertising Federation would ameliorate the lives of about 2000 adpersons besides creating better standard of living. Revolving Finance Fund will be managed by an expert member to generate income for adpersons. Revival of suspended ad agencies and radio channels would create new jobs. No one would be able to exploit ad professionals. Export of skilled advertising professionals to U.S. and Middle East will increase income of ad professionals. One can state that Pakistan Advertising Foundation would help increasing 0.05% GDP of Pakistan annually in shape of advertising services exports and foreign remittances.
