Campaign Imminent: New Balance begins global creative review


Subject: traditional, digital, print, social media

Company: New Balance, the Boston-based athletic shoe manufacturer.

Opportunity: After parting ways with creative AOR Arnold earlier this year (more here), New Balance has launched a global creative review led by R3. While the bulk of the work will focus on the US, the company is looking to expand efforts globally. Not much else is known about the state of the review, but hopefully you engaged in time to pitch the business.

Sellers, a new creative team surely signals new campaigns later this year, so be sure you are securing revenue. Note that while NB increased both TV and display spend in 2015, 2016 has seen a decline in spend. However, this is likely due to the creative shift, so sellers should expect spend to return to normal levels by Q4 and beyond.

Additionally, media agency reviews usually follow creative (and vice versa), so keep NB on your radar for other reviews in the next year. Currently, PGR Media handles New Balance’s traditional and digital media planning and buying.

Additional Information

Media Spend: According to Kantar Media, New Balance spent $21.9 million on measured media in 2015. Most of this was allocated to broadcast ads, while print, display and out-of-home made up most of the remainder. 

National TV Spend: So far this year, iSpot reports that NB has spent only $116,000 on national TV ads. But NB has never spent much on national TV (same period 2015 was $233,000). Since plans are to increase US creative, though, this could change in the future. 

For 2016, the three TV spots were run on NBC Sports and CBS Sports during "Track and Field" and "MLL Lacrosse."

Digital Breakdown: Moat reports that New Balance has run 290 display ads on 742 publishers this year (5% mobile). Top ad destinations include active.com, shopstyle.com, eastbay.com, songlyircs.com and popsugar.com (64% placed site direct versus programmatically). The company has also run 129 high impact and 13 video ads (90% of the video ads were placed site direct).

For the same period 2015, 257 display, 253 high impact and 18 video ads on almost 3,000 publishers (2% mobile; 69% site direct).
