Holiday, 2017 Media Opps: eBay returns to TV for holiday campaign amid marketing increases


Subject: traditional, digital, online, mobile, social media, search, display, outdoor

Company: eBay

Opportunity: I hate to say, "I told you so," but - wait. That's not true - ISpot reports that, since Aug. 1, eBay has aired four national TV spots. And according to the company, even more spots will debut today (provided this election doesn't bring forth the end of the world).

CMO Suzy Deering stated that "TV allows you to tell eBay's story in a way that connects emotionally for people considering it as a destination for gifts." Holiday spots include two :30-second TV commercials, as well as four :15-second digital videos. 

To bolster the campaign, eBay is also creating a "Holiday Workshop" online and increasing marketing on 18 different social channels. The holiday campaign was created by Pereira & O'Dell, who was selected after an RFP process. It's unlikely that P&O will serve as AOR, but we'll let you know if we hear differently. EBay also worked with Digitas (digital media since 2012), Edelman (PR since 2009) and Triad (creative) for this campaign.

Agency readers - CMO Suzy Deering has been on the job just over a year and, as you can see, has already begun shifting the online auction site's marketing strategy. This, combined with the over two-year tenure of creative and media AORs Omnicom's here). However, those who can help eBay appeal to new buyers in high-ROI, innovative ways should get pitches together.

For the last three years, Q2 and Q3 have been eBay's largest spending periods, so keep this in mind when pitching the business. EBay was removed from the Vulnerable Account Index in May 2016 - due to our self-imposed time constraints - but this does not mean the account is any less ripe for change over the next year.
