  1. 1. Introduction: “The word that bridges the gap between “no more” to “know more”- Advertising and further between “know more” and “grow more”. Knowledge is power, they say and today the biggest weapon of power in anyone’s hands is that of advertising. Just as water is to a fish, advertising is to business; something without which the basic question of survival is bound to rise.In this jungle of name and fame, where every creature confidently defies William Shakespeare when he says,” What’s there in a name” there is definitely everything attached to name and it’s this name which gives you fame……And what gives an identity it’s name? Well, the only golden word “Advertising” Definitely roses will not smell less sweet by any other name but businesses will undoubtedly go back to the coffers if the world forgets their names and to keep them alive in the minds of billions, you go for publicity.Today everyone advertises – from crèches to crematorium ,from hotels to hospitals, from clubs to pubs,from marriage bureaus to lawyers…… well name it and you have it. Everyone needs recognition, from a 6 month baby in the cradle to a 60 year old preparing for a graveyard, from a beggar to a billionaire…… everyone wants you to recognize in a train or in a plane , irrespective of what you are. In the yesteryears , everything was considered fair in love & war and advertising . It does not mind if you have to pull someone down, important is that you should rise.And who helps you to project yourself in the public, who brings you from the greenlight to the limelight, who brings you from the darkness of ignorance to the light of recognition? Obviously, the advertising gurus seated comfortably in their mind-blowing officesThese Advertising Agencies may be raking in big “moollahs” but no one can question their contribution in enabling the business to burn their “choolahs” .Today there are the movie moghuls and cricketing badshahs dancing on their fingertips, models and celebrities weaving their irresistible web of magic around people like us. Well, necessity is the mother of invention and our necessities have opened the doors of prosperity for these agencies.Be it a product or be it a service, they have the magic formulae for everything and mind you, these formulae really work on our minds as is clear from our very own experiences. And sometimes their roles really makes a layman wonder as to what would have happen to those hundreds of unsung brands appearing as faces in the crowd on some rack or shelves of a huge supermarket or a not-so-popular stores if these agencies would have never risen from the sands of time.Today, the exposure of every individual to advertisements and advertising has increased manifolds than what it was in the past. Kudos to these agencies ; at least they have turned out to be major trend-setters and torch-bearers for people like us showing us the way to the magnanimous world of sophisticated products & services. However unethical and materialistic these agencies may be, at times in a bid to grab the lion’s share of the buyers’ market, it is doubtlessly certain that without these agencies we would have never come out from the age of transistors to reach the modern age of home theatres. Well, every cloud has a silver lining to it.Who can forget the extent and the manner in which Reliance Infocomm marketed its Wireless in Local Loop (WLL) Technology on the onset of the launch of its mobile service. Irrespective of the post-use catastrophes, the impact of solid marketing & publicity on the minds of an ordinary laymen for whom having a mobile in hand was nothing less than wearing a gold ring in the ring finger is reflected in the way such a person is today using a cell phone. The hype was created by the agencies like Xebec Communications who advertised the product of one of the Fortune 500 Companies of India and the hysteria still continues.The Objectives of the Project Report:The project deals with the study of advertising agencies encompassing a multi-dimensional discussion on the whereabouts of these agencies, their modus operandi, their manner and coverage of operations, their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities available to them and the threats posing obstacles in their journey to the max. This study shows the diversity underlining their operations and at the same time the unity in aims, objectives and target. As during the preparation of this project, some inevitable obstacles and natural hindrances restricted the scope of this study just as these agencies are restricted by many environmental and socio-economic factors, nonetheless, its a sincerest attempt to do the best possible justice to the said topic.AGENCIES COVERED:(1) Xebec(2) Canco(3) McCann-Erickson(4) Carat(5) Percept(6) Mudra<br />Number of Pages of Project Report:88Package Includes: Project ReportProject Format: Document (.doc)<br />Table of Contents of Project Report:CH 1 Research MethodologyCH 2 IntroductionCH 3 Profile3.1 Introduction to Advertising Agencies3.2 Functions of Advertising Agencies3.3 Model Organization StructureCH 4 ADVERTISING AGENCIES1 XEBEC1.1 The Whereabouts1.2 Modus Operandi1.3 The Canvas on which Xebec paints its product1.4 How can I know about Xebec?1.5 SWOT Analysis1.6 Case Studies1.7 Awards and Achievements1.8 Who’s who in Xebec 1.9 Divisions of Xebec1.10 List of Clients2 CARAT2.1 The Whereabouts2.2 Modus Operandi2.3 SWOT Analysis2.4 List of clients<br />3 CANCO3.1 The Whereabouts3.2 Modus Operandi3.3 SWOT Analysis3.4 Canvas on which Canco paints its product3.5 How can I know about Canco3.6 Organization Structure3.7 Facilities offered by Canco3.8 Awards4 MCCANN - ERICKSON4.1 History4.2 Who’s Who4.3 Modus Operandi4.4 SWOT Analysis5 MUDRA5.1 History5.2 Pioneers in Advertising Agencies5.3 Divisions5.4 Founder5.5 List of Awards5.6 Major Clients5.7 Organization StructureCH 5 SWOT Analysis of Advertising Agencies-Comparative StudyCH 6 Statistics6.1 Comparison between Gross Income of Top 25 Agencies6.2 Growth of Advertising Agencies6.3 Top 20 Advertising Agencies6.4 Top 20 Advertising Spenders6.5 Agencies Ranking6.6 2001- Top Ten Multinational Advertisers6.7 2001- Top Ten Advertising Agencies6.8 Comparison of Agencies on the basis of Worldwide Gross Income6.9 Graph of Growth of AgenciesCH 7 Suggestions and RecommendationsCH 8 ConclusionCH9 AnnexureCH10 Bibliography and Webliography<br />Advertising Agency Business <br />March 21, 2010 10 Comments <br />There is a great scope of advertising business in India .This is because MNC companies which have recently been allowed to sell products in India depend heavily on the agencies to reach out to the common masses. Likewise small companies- coming up in large number -due to easy availability of business loans are looking for effective means to promote themselves in the market.

This article demonstrates why many businesses fail at the hands of Creative and Print shops purporting to be Advertising Agencies. The above description is How to start a Creative Shop, not an Advertising Agency! The Creative Shop can charge you tens of thousands for a super bowl quality ad, but if you do not run an effective campaign using that ad, you might as well light your money on fire! <br />Print<br />Email<br />Share<br />Related Ads<br />Advertising Agency<br />Advertising Agencies<br />Web Design Agency<br />Marketing Agency<br />Real Estate Agency<br />AD Agency<br />Related Articles & Videos<br />How to Start a Newspaper Ad Agency <br />How to Choose an Advertising Agency <br />How to Start a Printing & Advertising Agency <br />How to Start a Digital Media Ad Agency <br />How to Set Up an Advertising Agency <br />What Is an Advertising Photographer? <br />Starting a Modeling Agency <br />How to Start a Modeling Agency <br />How to Start an Insurance Agency <br />How to Advertise Babysitting Services <br />Top of Form<br />Bottom of Form<br />You can also make money by operating your own ad agency from home.  Offer businesses advertising space in YOUR publication. You will run a little publication  that contains adverts and if you like, a sprinkling of articles. You take payment from advertisers first before they place their adverts with you. You use part of this money for printing and distribution costs. The balance of the money is your own profits to keep. You now arrange distribution of your publication. In this way, you can start and operate a highly profitable advertising business without spending a single cent. You use the finances of other people (the advertisers) to float your start up expenses and reap for you a sizable profit on a daily basis.<br />Publication Size  <br />Firstly, give a name to your publication. This makes it easily identifiable and it looks professional too. Now decide on how your publication is going to look and how many pages it will consist of. It is good to start with three A4 pages. Place these three A4 pages together and fold horizontally to make an A5 sized publication that has A5 sides. The name of your publication and your telephone number goes on the top first page. Decide on the area you will distribute these publications. Put the name of this area next to or immediately below the name of your publication. At a later stage, you may run same named publications but in different areas.<br />Decide on the number of copies of your publication you wish to distribute in a specific area. The more you plan to distribute, the happier your advertisers will feel about advertising with you. This is because the more copies you distribute, the greater amount of people will read the adverts and hence more exposure and business is possible for your advertiser.  Try and visit at least three printers and get printing quotes on printing your publication. <br />Distribution <br />You can use various methods to distribute your publications like handing them out at street corners to passing pedestrians and motorists, at busy malls, at community centers and door to door in neighborhoods. <br />Work out the cost to distribute each copy of your publication. You may need to employ school kids or part-time workers to do the distribution for you. Decide on what to pay them. Three cents per publication correctly delivered is a very fair price. Do random checks to ensure that these are delivered to your requirements. This method is the most effective method from a cost point of view and it works the best. The amount per copy you decide to pay is your distribution costs.<br />Charging Advertisers<br />In order to calculate a fair price to charge advertisers, ensuring you have a sizable profit for your time and trouble, you’ll have to work backwards.<br />The costs you have so far are printing costs and distribution costs (including fuel costs and sundries if applicable). Adding these two together will give you a total of all costs you will ever get. This represents the total operating costs to you. Calculate ? (one third) of the total operating costs. This figure that you get represents your profit that you keep for yourself. Add this profit figure to your total operating costs figure. The amount you get represents the total amount of money you need to get from total advertisers’ fees that you have to charge. Divide this amount by the number of page sides (twelve A5 sides if you choose the size mentioned earlier).This figure will give you the cost of advertising space for one A5 side of your publication. Divide this figure by four and the new figure that you get will give you the cost of ¼ (one quarter) page of advertising fee in your publication. You will base your advertising fees on this figure per quarter page of advertising space. As an incentive for advertisers to book more space in your publication, you can give discounts on larger spots taken.<br />Remember advertisers pay you first, then their advert appears. This money received from advertisers is pooled together and used to finance operating costs and your very own profit. You can therefore start and operate this business with no capital whatsoever.<br />How To Get Advertisers<br />Get hold of newspapers on a regular basis. Jot down details of small businesses or individuals advertising in the classifieds. Check this newspaper on different days and cross check with the list you have already drawn up. Once you find adverts appearing more than once, tick these off on your list. Contact these people and offer your advertising services.<br />Collect Adverts And Prepare<br />The last stage is to collect adverts from advertisers, collect payments and hand over adverts to your printers. Explain the setting up of your publication to your printer, who’ll do the layout and typesetting for you. Once the entire publication is typeset, check for any errors and if happy commence with printing. Some customers may have fancy logos which can easily be scanned onto your publication. <br />You may find that you will have to assist some advertisers with the drafting and preparation of their adverts. Do this for them as part of the service. It is important to create a deadline for taking in adverts. If you find you have some space left, allow a few extra days making sure you don’t run behind schedule.<br />Notify advertisers when publications will be ready and when, how and where they will be distributed. Give the advertiser a publication for his own records.<br />Once publications are ready, commence with distribution as planned.<br />Conclusion<br />The first time you do this may seem a bit taxing but the second time round will be a breeze as more advertisers gain confidence in you, your business and your abilities. As we found in our second time, we had so many advertisers that space was booked in two days! We had to put off the rest till the following week. <br />Think of how much advertising you run into every day. Magazine ads, television, some places you'll even find advertising in bathroom stalls! <br />You must make a marketing difference. You need a strategy. You have to be distinct. <br />So just how do you stand out from the competition? It's a long, well-thought out process. And it begins with your marketing plan. <br />There are several key factors you must identify to make your marketing plan a strong one: <br />Who are your potential customers? <br />What's the most effective way to inform your potential customers? <br />What do your customers want? <br />How can you position your product/service in an appealing manner? <br />Look closely at your target market. What's their age, sex, profession, income level, educational level and residence? <br />If you're selling $70,000 vehicles, it really is a waste of time to target an audience who's making minimum wage. Sure, they may come by the dealership and test drive the car. But will they be able to afford the payments? It may sound like a cold way to approach your marketing strategy but, after all, you're in business to make money. <br />Learn all you can about your competitors: <br />Who are your nearest direct and indirect competitors? <br />What are their strengths and weaknesses? <br />Analyze market research data. <br />Now compare your product/service to your competition: <br />Is there a demand for your product/service? <br />What are the similarities and differences between your product/service and the competition? <br />Assess the unique features of your product/service. <br />Once you identify how your product/service is different, you can begin your description. Emphasize the special features. <br />Hit your selling points. Is your product easier to use, faster, smaller, cheaper? <br />You know your company provides a product or service that's better than your competition. Now you're ready for the meat of your marketing plan. Your marketing budget includes: <br />Advertising and promotional plan <br />Costs allotted for advertising and promotions <br />Advertising and promotional materials <br />List of advertising media to be used and an estimate of costs for each medium <br />You know how much you can spend now and just where you should spend it. You're ready to focus on your product's pricing strategy. <br />Write a brief description of your pricing techniques. Several elements can help you determine your pricing strategy: <br />Retail costing and pricing (for retail businesses only) <br />Competitive position <br />Pricing below competition <br />Price lining <br />Multiple pricing (for service businesses only) <br />Service components <br />Material costs <br />Labor costs <br />Overhead costs <br />Overall, your marketing plan is designed to give you short- and long-term goals as well as a strategy to achieve those goals. Spend as much time as you need on your marketing plan. <br />It's a hashing out process that's a lot like a child. It will only be successful if it's given a lot of time and attention. <br />Suggested Reading<br />10 Ways to Get Customers to Buy Now<br />10 Ways to Run Your Own Advertising Campaign<br />Small Budget Advertising <br />Related Articles<br />Marketing Plans - Pricing Strategy Section Of The Marketing Plan<br />Marketing Strategy - How to Write a Small Business Plan Marketing Strategy<br />Writing A Business Plan - Marketing Plan Section Of Business Plan<br />Marketing Plans - Marketing Plan Definition<br />Marketing Plans Versus Marketing Strategy<br />Starting your own advertising agency business is not difficult if you have the right aptitude and the inclination. There are too many options to choose from, start, and run a successful advertising agency.<br />Start Your Own Publication: <br />There are many ways to start your own advertising agency business and one of the most cost effective methods is to start a small publication with a few articles and publications you personally wrote. <br />If you can collect money from the advertisers before starting your publication, you could get your advertisers to finance your start up needs! Use part of the collected money for printing and distribution, the remaining balance will be your profit, or you may spend some bucks for your own advertising. <br />Select a name for your publication, the layout and, the logo designs. <br />Research for papers and magazines to see who advertises a lot and invite them to place ads in your publication. <br />Contact a few printing companies and compare their prices and offers. <br />Make some lists of the number of copies to be distributed in particular areas. <br />Plan a good distribution strategy, including distribution in public places like cinema halls, malls, parks, door-to-door delivery, in the streets etc. <br />Estimate the cost of distributing the publication, have some workers to distribute them and compute their compensation based on your planned budget. <br />Do a research on how much to charge per advertisement. Make sure your price is competitive, and also make sure you make profit. <br />Offer your advertisers a help with the design and drafting of their advertisements if necessary and let them know the schedule of the release, where and how many copies, and make sure that they get a copy of the publication too. <br />This method has been tested and proven to work many times making several people earn a decent income working from home. Many big online advertising companies started using the same way. <br />Use the Internet to Start You Own Advertising Agency: The Internet has taken marketing, advertising, and promotion strategies to unprecedented levels, as the reach is astounding. If you understand the basics of Internet Marketing and have a little background in advertising and promotion, you can have a very profitable and productive career by starting your own advertising agency business. <br />EZines: These are electronic online magazines and are very popular.

Make sure that the topic is interesting and people will surely advertise in them, as the cost of advertising is lower as well as having the potential to reach millions of people online, making it a very powerful advertising tool over the Internet.
