Roy Morgan Research is pleased to announce that the freshly launched AdNews Media Benchmark Study 2014 is now available for purchase. Roy Morgan Research was commissioned by AdNews to undertake the study, an annual report into Australia’s media and advertising industry based on views from media agencies, owners and other media players across the country.  

Providing a comprehensive analysis of the media industry’s best and brightest performers, its biggest issues and most exciting (and worrying) trends, the report allows media companies to benchmark themselves against their competitors and colleagues, and compare their thoughts and opinions against those of their peers and clients.

Taking in both media sales and agency perspectives, the Benchmark Study reveals the biggest issues and trends expected in the next 12 months, the dynamics of media and agency relations, and much more.

Credit where credit’s due

The report also reveals Australia’s top media brands and agencies, as rated by their peers.

On one hand, we asked agencies to rate media brands on their professionalism and performance, using a three-tier ranking system. The overall winner was the brand with the highest total score.  For the first time, Google romped it in with top spot for Best Media Brand.

Likewise, Agencies were rated by their media sales peers across four areas: Knowledge, Communication, Collaboration, and Negotiation. Though there was no overall winner, UM certainly reigned supreme in three of the four categories, closely followed by OMD and Mediacom.
