GluVote – the oldest trick in the world . Get it right and be rewarded.


OVERVIEW

In the era of social media one issue is unanimously omitted: if people are the media, why are they not getting paid for it? Gluvote disrupts outdated principles of how brands interact with their audience via creative partners advertising agencies. The issues that we are examining are part of universal changes - the world is moving ahead with new distribution of opinions, which are far from accurate when it comes to the current brand building process.


PROBLEMS

Agency selection – the advertising agency pitch process is completely archaic. Testing creative - the more you test it the more it becomes a sausage. Media budget - even with online optimization, the media is far away from working properly. Eye-balls are no longer important, we want engagement, participation and loyalty. Creating brand loyalty now requires brave new and inclusive actions.

EVALUATION

AVI DAN PITCH CONSULTANT

Geoff Cottrill Converse Shoes, CMO

Anthony Cohen Quantas Airlines, CMO

David Baldwin W/H visa to NZ

On borad of Forbes, served as global CEO of WPP and worked on clients such as P&G, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Sprint, The Wall Street Journal and Pfizer.

With massive amount of product and variety of media, brand really resembles more of a movement than a series of campaigns. splitting different activations between different type of media.

Ran all global activations within 14 markets in Asia, North America and EU. Focus on brand recognition and customer experience.

Baltdwin named small agency of the year by AdWeek. Amazing creative but very limited resources to pitch big accounts.

How to ran and test campaigns on local markets and be sure it works. Micro-activations are what works but still very hard to do.

We really struggle with the economics of the pitching world. A company our size going up against much bigger agencies is really kind of ridiculous.

BIGGEST CHALLENGE

Hiring practices have changed dramatically over the years, but pitching remains comparatively stagnant.

Needs more of a direct feed back, less focus groups.

CALL TO ACTION

Would be fantastic to have access to younger agencies and test their creative talent by using direct pitch campaigns.

Would be interested to see tools that mixes analytic and creative with more intuitive “dial-up� system.

With new structure of partnerships within vertical infrastructure, Quantas is trying to create new type of scenarios, based on content partnerships and test it well.

We would love to get clear to how much money we got and just do it. Its a fresh start.

GO TO MARKET

Creative ads are by nature is the most contagious format and doesn’t need introduction to general public. Engaging agencies and brands to participate in the program would be easy as it resolves several most painful points that’s being hurting the industry for decades. Media relationships will be formed within/through global video platforms with add-on regulations on voting and crowd funding mechanisms (youtube.com, vimeo.com, yudou.com, qq.com, rutube.com)

We see a huge market opportunity in creating an ecosystem based on creative aspect of brand message, structured around view-centric insentives (either monitory or loyalty points). By giving brand audience access to direct monitazation of advertising media, in return for reviews and/or social acceptance, GluVote creates very much needed balance to currently overpowering media analytic.

FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS

Assuming average EBIT at 59% of sales, we would need 300 viral campaign per year (with minimum budget of 100K per campaign) to break even at the beginning of the second year. With explosive growth in direct media bookings (25% of all brands, 6Bn US market alone for online media in 2014/2015), and with over-arching growth in testing, verification and programmatic (140Bn by 2017), we estimate rapid 2nd and 3rd year growth, reaching $5 Million in sales at the end of our third fiscal year.

BIG PICTURE

WSelected clients / selected brief / hand pick agencies. Paid up influences. Seed and sell the story. Initial investors do very well. The story and the legend grows.
