A century’s worth of data indicates cutting ad spend during economic upheaval is detrimental to long-term and short-term financial success, according to VAB’s report, “Keep Calm and Advertise On: How to Successfully Navigate Your Brand Through Economic Downturn.” Key findings include:
* Companies that maintained their ad budgets during the 1974-75 recession realized a 50% higher sales index than those who cut spending in both years of the recession.
* Brands that increased advertising investment by 20-100% during the 1980 recession saw a 4.5x increase in market share over those that decreased spending.During the 2008-09 recession, brands including Amazon, Walmart, T-Mobile, General Mills and Hershey’s increased their TV investment, resulting in increases in sales or growth rate during the recession period and/or in the subsequent years that followed.“
* During this time, some sectors will have no choice but to cut back advertising spend or go dark, with closures or supply chain issues making doing business impossible. However, for other categories, this is a crucial time for brands to maintain share of voice,” said Danielle DeLauro, EVP, VAB. “As evidenced by a century’s worth of data, advertisers who decrease their share of voice will experience lower profits and be required to spend more money to regain their market share.”

SmileDirectClub is suing NBCUniversal for $2.85 billion over a negative report on the teeth-straightening company that aired on NBC’s Nightly News. “SmileDirectClub is not just holding NBC accountable for its misconduct, but it is also telling its affiliated doctors and shareholders that SmileDirectClub stands by their side and will fight to protect their interests and reputations.” Responded NBC, “We stand by our reporting and believe this is a meritless claim.”

The Producers Guild and the Directors Guild are altering eligibility rules this year to allow films intended to be released theatrically, but debuted on other platforms because of the pandemic, to be able to compete in film categories. “Every aspect of our world and our lives has been affected by this pandemic – and that includes our culture,” DGA president Thomas Schlamme said. “Numerous directors who’ve spent years bringing their visions to life are grappling with the reality that their theatrical releases are canceled. And while the unfortunate circumstances of this present situation prevent those plans from coming to fruition as their films are now being distributed on other platforms, we want to ensure that our members are being recognized by their peers for their work as intended. It is in this spirit that we are allowing a rule exception for the 2021 DGA Awards.” The moves follow similar decisions by the Oscars, Golden Globes, and SAG.
