    “Effectiveness is at the heart of everything we do as marketers. It’s why we spend so much energy helping our customers get better returns from their investment in mail. And it’s why we are enthusiastically joining this brilliant new IPA initiative’”

    Royal Mail plc has emerged from one of the largest ever transformations of a UK business as a profitable, £9 billion revenue, FTSE 100 company. With that have come new capabilities and focus driven by our core beliefs. The first is in the power of 1 to 1 communications. Mail and digital make a powerful combination. Digital has changed behaviour and inspired marketers to focus on 1 to 1. This has given mail a new role: helping organisations combine the instant gratification of digital with the reassuring authority of print. Mail earns more 1 to 1 time with consumers, sticks more deeply in the memory and persists more strongly in the home. So when you use it as part of an integrated campaign or in targeted programmes, mail increases ROI.

    Our second belief is that we only win when mail users and recipients also win; that’s why we focus relentlessly on developing products and services that are right for modern direct marketers.

    And thirdly, we believe in the power of partnership. We enjoy working alongside other marketers and their agencies towards a common goal – we’d like you to think of us as the direct mail experts within your wider marketing team.

    “Effectiveness sits at the heart of Thinkbox’s mission, all our roads lead to it. This is the reason why we have been proud sponsors of the IPA Effectiveness Awards for a decade and why we didn’t hesitate to support the IPA’s brilliant idea of having an Effectiveness Week. Every week should be an effectiveness week in advertising. Nothing matters more than making sure the hard work actually works and that our industry is armed with the knowledge and evidence of how to make better advertising.”

    Thinkbox is the marketing body for commercial TV in the UK, in all its forms. It works with the marketing community with a single ambition: to help advertisers get the best out of today’s TV.

    Its shareholders are Channel 4, ITV, Sky Media, Turner Media Innovations and UKTV, who together represent over 99% of commercial TV advertising revenue through their owned and partner TV channels. Associate Members are Discovery Networks Norway, Disney, London Live, RTL Group, TalkTalk, Think TV (Australia), Think TV (Canada), TV Globo (Brazil), TV2 (Norway) and Virgin Media. Discovery Channel UK, UTV and STV also give direct financial support.

    TV today has more to offer advertisers than ever before, not least because this growing medium remains at the heart of popular culture and advertising effectiveness. From understanding how audiences engage with TV advertising, uncovering what the latest technological developments mean, explaining innovative and affordable solutions, and encouraging creativity to providing the rigorous proof of effectiveness that advertisers need, Thinkbox is here to help businesses meet their marketing objectives.

    In recent years, Thinkbox has won a number of awards including Media 360’s Industry Body of the Decade; Best Business to Business Marketing at The Marketing Society Awards for Excellence; the Grand Prix award for Best Media Research of the Year from the Media Research Group; the awards for Advertising and Media Research from the Market Research Society; Research Team of the Year from Mediatel; and its TV advertising has been awarded by The British Television Advertising Awards/ The British Arrows, the APA, D&AD and Creative Circle. Thinkbox’s ‘Harvey the dog ad’ was voted 2010’s Ad of the Year by a poll of ITV viewers, with the follow up TV Ad – ‘Harvey & Rabbit’ – appearing in Nielsen’s study of the Most Liked Ads of 2012 and Campaign’s Top 10 TV & Cinema Ads of 2012. ‘Harvey & Harmony’, the third ad in the Harvey series, was one of the nation’s top ten most liked ads of 2015 (source: Ebiquity / TNS).

Effectiveness Week 2016

“Just what the industry needs, great collaboration between clients and agencies on the topics that drive business growth.”

Bridget Angear, Joint Chief Strategy Officer at AMV BBDO

“It’s great to see the IPA in the UK bring the whole industry and particularly the trade bodies together to focus on effectiveness. This new Marketing Effectiveness initiative will enable people across the industry to work together to build on best practice.”

David Wheldon, Chief Marketing Officer, RBS

“Effectiveness is a team sport, so it was great to see the industry in the widest sense, come together. In an increasingly diverse and fragmented world, only by using all parts of the brain will we solve effectiveness challenges and design our campaigns to deliver short and long term value. That’s why what happens next is important – if the IPA can help facilitate progress on this with a long-term initiative around Marketing Effectiveness, we’ll definitely crack it.”

Bart Michels, Global CEO Kantar Added Value and Country Leader Kantar UK

“The time spent at #EffWeek was extraordinarily effective. It was great to hear the diverse views from all areas of the industry. All tied together with the common themes of accountability and effectiveness.”

Andrew Canter, Global CEO, BCMA

“It has been a privilege to be part of the inaugural Effectiveness Week. The agenda is one which we at O2 UK feel passionately about. To see and hear perspectives across the industry demonstrates how the breadth of marketing effectiveness is increasingly being valued within businesses. Data, insight, social, customer experience, test and learn, ROI, these are all fundamentals and were covered expansively at the event”.

Sandra Fazackerley, Marketing & Consumer, Telefónica UK Limited

“The full week of effectiveness events brought into clear focus the need for marketers to use data and insight to achieve the key business objectives of growth and profits. Marketers today are in a better position to quantify their knowledge of customers and measure the ability of investments in marketing to increase brand and shareholder value.”

Chris Combemale, Group CEO, DMA
