Client Compensation Discussion: Value/Performance Based Approaches

Dearborn, Mich., Nov. 15

Sponsored by the 4A’s Michigan Council, this event deals with value- and performance-based approaches. Agency compensation is a major challenge for both agencies and advertisers. The issues are all too familiar: Cost-based arrangements cap the agency’s profit potential, limit growth and often omit legitimate costs from fee calculations; procurement’s focus is on getting more work at lower cost; and clients need to verify that they are receiving fair value from their marketing investment. Tom Finneran, 4A’s evp, agency management services, will discuss compensation benchmarks, emerging trends and alternate approaches. This event will be held at the Dearborn Inn.
