  1. 1. Warc Prize for Asian Strategy Analysis of entries
  2. 2. Background to the data <ul><li>How the Prize was set up </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Asia’s first competition to focus on brilliant strategic thinking within marketing. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>US$5,000 cash prize awarded to the best case study. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Judged by eight senior client-side marketers and six global strategy experts. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Base for data analysis </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There were 136 entries in total. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Of these, 25 were shortlisted. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Warc has collected data on all entries, including budget, sector, media channels used and marketing objectives </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Prize entries covered 13 different countries in Asia (this refers to the countries the marketing activity was conducted in rather than the countries in which it was developed). Shortlisted entries covered 12 different markets. </li></ul><ul><li>The Prize was dominated by single-market campaigns: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Just seven out of 136 total entries were multiple-market </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Just two out of the 25 shortlisted entries were multiple-market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>India is the lead country in both total entries and shortlist. More than half the shortlisted entries include India. </li></ul><ul><li>Markets such as Japan, Hong Kong and China ‘overperformed’, in that their share of entries in the shortlist was significantly higher than their share of total entries. </li></ul>Geographic spread of entries
  4. 4. Geographic spread of entries (continued) * Figures refer to the number of entries that included marketing activity in that territory Top 10 markets (total entries) No. of entries* India 44 Malaysia 25 Singapore 14 Thailand 14 China 13 Taiwan 12 Indonesia 11 Philippines 10 Vietnam 10 Hong Kong 8 Top 10 markets (shortlist) No. of entries* India 13 China 4 Japan 4 Hong Kong 3 Indonesia 3 Malaysia 3 Vietnam 3 Taiwan 2 Philippines 1 Singapore 1
  5. 5. Geographic spread of entries (continued)
  6. 6. <ul><li>Prize entries covered 15 different client categories (a small number of entries were judged to cross two different categories). Shortlisted entries covered 12 different categories. </li></ul><ul><li>Telecoms, including mobile telephony, was the biggest category among all Prize entries. There were multiple entries on telecoms campaigns in India and Malaysia in particular, reflecting the high level of competition in those markets. </li></ul><ul><li>Within the telecoms entries, mobile phone providers accounted for more than half the entries (all of them from India or Malaysia), with mobile handset brands the second most common sub-category. </li></ul><ul><li>However, telecoms entries were less common in the shortlist. Campaigns for food companies, which perhaps have a longer heritage in marketing, were slightly more common. </li></ul>Client sector breakdown
  7. 7. Client sector breakdown (continued)
  8. 8. <ul><li>International brands owned by non-Asian companies (e.g. Coca-Cola, McDonald’s) were common among Prize entries, and dominated the shortlist. However, single-market brands owned locally (e.g. Bajaj Auto, DiGi), were well represented in both stages. </li></ul>Types of brand Type of brand
  9. 9. <ul><li>While there were a lot of small-budget campaigns among total entries, mid-budget campaigns were more common in the shortlist. In particular, campaigns in the $3 million to $5 million range were three times more common in the shortlist than they were among total entries. </li></ul>Breakdown by budget size Budget (USD)
  10. 10. <ul><li>Warc tags case studies according to marketing objective. In the Prize, cases were assigned an average of two objectives each. </li></ul><ul><li>Building/defending a brand position was the most common objective in both the total pool of entries and the shortlist, followed in both cases by increasing sales/volume. Softer objectives such as increasing awareness and changing brand image appear in the top 5 for both groups. </li></ul>Marketing objectives Top 5 objectives (total entries) % Build/defend brand position 56.6 Increase sales/volume 25.0 Change brand image 20.6 Increase awareness 19.1 Brand relaunch/reposition 14.0 Top 5 objectives (shortlist) % Build/defend brand position 60.0 Increase sales/volume 20.0 Change brand image 16.0 Gain new customers 16.0 Increase awareness 16.0
  11. 11. <ul><li>On average, Prize entries used 7.6 media channels each. Shortlisted entries used an average of 8.9. </li></ul><ul><li>Unsurprisingly, television was the most popular medium among Prize entries, with 88 of the 136 entries using this media channel. TV also dominated the shortlist, with 23 of the 25 campaigns using it. </li></ul><ul><li>Social media was a common feature among entries – 79 entries used social sites, putting this channel second only to TV. Social media common in the shortlist too, appearing in 13 of the 25 shortlisted entries, though this was fewer than outdoor, newspapers and internet display. </li></ul><ul><li>Interestingly, TV and social media were used in combination in 33% of total papers, but in a much higher 52% of the shortlisted papers. </li></ul><ul><li>Newspapers featured heavily, but consumer magazines were used relatively rarely – more rarely than many online channels. </li></ul>Media channels
