Campaigns Imminent: General Mills selects new creative agency leads

Subject: digital, social media, print, OOH, TV

Company: General Mills

Update (11/1): The CPG giant, formerly No. 12 in the you get an agency and you get an agency! This review is for the totality of General Mills' US retail business, including cereal, yogurt, meals, snacks and baking products. Read more about the review below, and reach out to possibly get in on the second part of the review. 

Sellers - be on the lookout for campaigns across GM's entire portfolio as we move into 2017. This is particularly true for its yogurt business, a category that has received heightened spend in the last year (more here).

Below published 9/1

Opportunity: At the end of July, GM initiated a creative review (more here). Joanne Davis Consulting is supporting the review, which includes creative, production and content work for all of its US retail brands. Since the first rule of Review Club is "don't listen to what DMs say about Review Club," it should come as no surprise that the review is not closed, as was previously intimated.

In fact, AdAge reports non-roster shops are participating in the review, such as Deutsch and Mother. They join incumbents 72andSunny, McCann and a "holding company solution from Publicis Groupe" rather than Saatchi in the second round. The shops moving on will now participate in workshops over the next five weeks, so an announcement could be made shortly after that (for those without a calendar handy, five weeks from today is the first full week of October). Chief creative officer Michael Fanuele noted that the company hopes to have a new creative agency before we (the US) have a new president.

Simonds summoned her best robot impression and told AdAge: "I do not find joy in change for change's sake." She added the review is intended to find "one core agency" to handle the bulk of GM's creative work and ensure the company's creative excellence is as "robust, modern and relevant as it can be." 

In what Simonds said "feels like a first" in the industry, GM is requiring a certain amount of diversity from its new creative partner. Specifically, GM requests that potential partners have at least 50% female and 20% minority presence  (no wooden ships though?) in not just the agency, but specifically its creative department.

Additional Information

Q4 Earnings Call: During June's Q4 earnings call, Ken Powell mentioned that GM's US cereal category improved "considerably" since 2015. He credited effective marketing investment and strong renovation for the recent successes. The past year''s cereal marketing included the launch of gluten-free Cheerio's and newly-renovated cereals including Trix, Golden Grams and Reese's Puffs.

However, Powell also mentioned that marketing and innovation efforts "underperformed" for its US yogurt business. He pointed out that GM remains "very committed to winning" in this category. 

Given the lowered sales forecast for fiscal 2017, executives noted that advertising spend in aggregate will be "down a little bit." GM has "focused" its advertising spend and "it will obviously grow in the areas that [GM] thinks have the highest returns and the highest possibilities for growth."
