According to a Pricewaterhouse (PwC) study on entertainment and media consumption, it reveals that of the 13 segments analyzed in 54 countries- in Mexico the trend in the Entertainment and Media Market towards 2020 is headed by access to the Internet, which will grow at an annual rate of 5.5%; Followed by television and video, with an annual growth of 4.1% and third place television advertising with an increase of 4.6% per year. While these trends materialize the study, it has also identified key changes that are occurring in each of the dimensions of the entertainment and media landscape. These include demography, competition, consumption, geography, and business models.
Eric Descombes president of FCB Mexico, who has a background in technology, commented that in the face of these changes FCB Mexico has gone one step further.
• It has transformed its Agency model to a dynamic one focused on the process that leads to the growth of sales and goals of its clients.
• It is worth highlighting the Creative license that Humberto Polar generated for this platform that is unique.
Eric Descombes presented the FCB Marketing Cloud, a successful model that in less than a year has allowed them to grow more than 1000%. Incorporating 10 new brands into its client portfolio in 2016.
This model is made up of 100% creative creative business strategists. Those who are based on a new work process where the brief moves from a role to a collaborative team with the client. This allows them to accelerate up to 6 times the delivery of campaigns, radically increases the creation of business solutions, ideas and gives better business results and positioning to its customers. In addition, its technology integrates predictive analytics and dynamic creativity. This creates more effective and segmented communication campaigns.
• How does it work? Integrating technology, strategy and creativity. The center is the team.
He emphasized that talent is the most important pillar of the company. He commented that last year FCB Mexico obtained the certification on gender equity granted by Victoria 147 which has become a reference on an international and local level, since they have managed to balance their areas. For example, in the Creative area, the positions as Content Provider that Ana Noriega, Ursula de la Sotta, Chantal Suárez and Daniela Zalzman occupy stand out.
