Black Agencies is a directory of black owned and black run advertising agencies that have more than 5 full time employees, office and landline. These are agencies that can handle a R12 million+ a year retainer with very little headache for advertisers. The objective is to make it easier for marketers to buy marketing services from real black owned and black run agencies. Through economic inclusion the directory promotes black creative advertising excellence.

According to Adex, Total ad spend in South Africa is R42bn. The Black Agencies Movement will shift Total SA Advertising Spend by 25% (R10bn) to black owned agencies by 2019. We aim to achieve this through (a) showcasing black talent on existing and owned creative awards (b) centralizing access to the best black agencies in Africa.

  It’s an open secret that advertising people hate timesheets, though it remains the preferred pricing model with no sign of an alternative. Our daily job is to find creative solutions for our clients, but we have done little to find a solution to our ancient pricing model that we despise so much even though our industry keeps changing.   Hourly rate is one of the simplest pricing models, almost like a copout for people who don’t know how to price their services.

    While I cringe at the title of this article, it’s a fair question. It’s like asking if there’s a viable market for Chinese advertising agencies in China. But the question is relevant here, given our political history and the current economic structure. The most-transformed sector in the county is the public sector, simply because we have the political power. http://www.marklives.com/2016/06/motive-is-there-a-viable-market-for-black-ad-agencies-in-sa/ Article originally published on Marklives.com...
