Q4 Media Opps: American Girl moves media planning


Subject: traditional, TV, digital, omnichannel, direct, social

Brand: American Girl (Confession: I totally owned Samantha growing up) – AG is owned by Mattel.

Opportunity: We’ve learned that American Girl moved media planning from Publicis’s Intiative NY earlier this year. AG has drastically reduced TV spend in 2015 and is shifting more dollars into digital, like most other brands. Q4 is AG’s biggest spend period, so reach out now to secure any holiday dollars that may still be on the table.

During Q1, AG launched the Truly Me personalized line to strengthen brand relevance, so that would probably be the best place to begin pitches. CEO Chris Sinclair said that while the Truly Me launch (a rebrand from the My American Girl line) is doing well, there is still more work to be done to reinforce AG’s point of differentiation, personalization and in-store experience. Therefore, those with ideas for how to keep the brand top-of-mind – particularly in Mom and girl-focused digital, social and mobile channels – you know what to do.

Additional Insight

Media Spend: Kantar Media reports that AG spent $11.7 million on measured media in 2014. According to iSpot, AG has spent only $481,000 on national TV ads this year – a 99.9% decrease from the same period 2014 when $2.4 million was spent. 

Digital Breakdown: According to Moat, AG has run 47 standard display ads on 173 publishers so far this year (3% mobile). Top ad destinations include webkinz.com, stardoll.com, funbrain.com, nick.com and gamesgames.com. The same period over 2014 saw the doll brand run 22 creatives on 43 publishers (<1% mobile).

Agency Relationships: According to The List, WPP’s Publicis North America is responsible for brand strategy & development, digital content and production.
