Thinkerbell has announced its sponsorship of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute for Marketing Science, based in South Australia.
The institute is the world’s largest centre for research into marketing and is known as a leading authority on evidence-based marketing.
Adam Ferrier, chief thinker at Thinkerbell said the sponsorship is important for evidence-based marketing.
“For people who want to do evidence-based marketing, they need to draw on the most valid and reliable evidence available, and that’s via the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute,” says Ferrier.
“Our proposition is ‘measured magic’, that’s shorthand for ‘marketing science meets hardcore creativity’, and we believe the more rooted in marketing sciences our thinking is, then the more creative we can be, as one drives the other.
“I’ve had a long relationship with Byron and the team at Ehrenberg-Bass Institute, and my only qualm is that it took us five years to become a sponsor.
“We see a lot of value in a relationship such as this and would advocate that any creative agency who takes marketing science seriously also sponsor the institute. We are one of the first independent creative agencies anywhere in the world to become a sponsor of the Institute, we don’t expect to be the last.”
The Ehrenberg-Bass Institute’s Byron Sharp said: “We know they are passionate advocates for evidence-based marketing and will deliver the Institute’s key insights into best marketing practices for their clients.”
Margie Reid, CEO of Thinkerbell said: “This will have a flow on effect to the creative thinking we do with our clients. The relationship with Ehrenberg-Bass Institute further reinforces our commitment into marketing science, and complements the work we have already done in this space, and the specialists, headed by Matt Plant, we have in our team.”
