Intricate ad rates

26 March 2015

 World Cup matches have seen TV Ratings of 12-13 and the semi-final clash is expected to certainly be in the higher teens. “There has been a big upside to clients advertising in the cricket World Cup 2015,’’ said Vanita Keswani, COO, Madison Media Sigma. She said, “It is not very often that clients experience double-digit TV ratings.’’

According to media planners, the spot rates for some of less competitive matches involving India were about Rs.4.50 lakh for a 10-second slot. For the T20 world cup last year, the rates started at Rs.3.75 lakh, and shot up by 15-20 per cent as India entered the final.
For this World Cup, Star India has offered multiple formats (including high-definition TV) and even local-language feeds. The structure of ad rates is, therefore, quite intricate.
This tournament has seen a mix of the traditional big league advertisers such as Bharti Airtel and Maruti and the new emerging brands such as Quickr and YepMe.
Kartik Sharma, Managing Director, Maxus-South Asia, a part of India’s largest media buying company GroupM, said 9-10 large advertisers entered the fray in the quarter-final stage. “Advertisers take decisions in consultation with agencies for a full-year plan. Today, cricket is an almost year-long phenomenon with an average of 180-200 days of cricket per year. ’’
Advertising rates are a subject of negotiation between media buyers and the broadcaster. “The jump in rates would not affect those who have taken it as a package. Usually Star would have slots to in take last minute spots where premiums can really shot,” said another media planner.
