Elevating the Role of Marketing Procurement --
What Even Agencies Need to Know (Members Only)
Tuesday, June 18th
Download and watch the presentation (requires member login)
“Marketing’s goals should be our goals in theory, but typically procurement organizations have separate metrics — we rarely get credit for the sales generated by our efforts, but should be.” --Kim Johnson, Group Vice President, Strategic Sourcing Lead, Marketing, Suntrust
The discipline of marketing procurement has existed in the industry for well over a decade now. Some companies have more mature marketing procurement teams while others are just starting out. At many companies, the focus continues to be on cost. But some more enlightened firms are now evolving the conversation to strategic metrics, like driving marketing ROI. Recently, ANA took the pulse of its members to better understand the metrics used to gauge the success of marketing procurement. That research and follow-up qualitative interviews help to provide a roadmap for marketers as well as agencies to maximize the contribution of marketing procurement.

A Deep Dive Into the Latino Influence Project (Members)
Thursday, February 28th
The United States is under the influence of the rapid growth of the Latino population. Fashion, music, entertainment, food, and pop culture are key areas in which Latinos are driving mainstream culture and creating nationwide trends.
Most likely you've inevitably heard that “tortillas and salsa now outsell bread and ketchup” and that “dulce de leche is Häagen-Dazs’ top-selling flavor of ice cream.” In fact, Cheerios, a quintessentially American cereal, recently launched their own “dulce de leche” flavor. Ricky Martin appeared on Glee, Sofia Vergara launched a clothing line at K-Mart, and Victor Cruz is teaching the world to salsa every time he scores a touchdown.
The Influence Project from Wing and Experian set out to quantify the extent to which Latinos are influencing the non-Latinos around them. The findings show that Hispanic influence extends far beyond tortillas and jalapeños into attitudes and beliefs around health, technology, and even the environment. The Online University session will take a deeper dive into the results of this study.
