Marketers for brands, consumer products, retail chains, media and entertainment are struggling to redefine and reinvent "advertising" for a new generation of empowered consumers.



Media proliferation and fragmentation is making it harder to reach consumers with traditional formats of "interruption" advertising. New technologies, media platforms and consumer behaviors are affecting every aspect of traditional marketing and thereby dramatically impacting marketing effectiveness.



There is a strong need to create "engagement" advertising models with digital at the core which will facilitate more sophisticated, powerful and profitable connections between brands, content creators and their target audiences....



There is a strong need to create "engagement" advertising models with digital at the core which will facilitate more sophisticated, powerful and profitable connections between brands, content creators and their target audiences.



Internationally, the content-commerce partnership evolution is gathering momentum. Brand entertainment partnerships are changing the rules of developing creative campaigns, marketing and advertising planning and production.



In response to these challenges, GroupM India launched GroupM ESP to help brands harness the power of content based solutions by activating the power of movies, music, sports, live, celebrities and characters.



GroupM ESP specialises in evaluating, negotiating, developing, activating and measuring strategic content platforms and partnerships around movies, music, sports, celebrities and characters.

New technologies and new channels incorporating licensing need to be harnessed creatively using insights with marketing ROI rigorously quantified.
