Article excerpt

September's spend displays a number of shifts on previous months, which have been dominated by motor manufacturers. Overall spend is up on July by [pounds sterling]6.08m due to a significant rise by the COI and both Procter & Gamble and Lever Faberge following the latter's merger.

The bulk of September's spend is on TV advertising, which is up [pounds sterling]15.64m, in part due to increased viewing figures following the terrorist attacks in the US, as well as seasonal factors. Press and radio spend remain stable, while cinema and outdoor show a combined drop of [pounds sterling]5.29m this month as budgets were pushed into other areas.

Direct mail spend is down significantly on July due to an unrepeated push by DFS which accounted for a significant amount of July's total mail spend. MBNA's spend remains consistent in this area with a total spend of [pounds sterling]4.43m, of which [pounds sterling]4.19m is on direct mail.

Renault and Ford both decreased overall spend this month, although Honda enters the top 20 with [pounds sterling]4.09m spent.

FMCG dominates the top 20, including the entry of Nestle Rowntree, with [pounds sterling]5.59m spent across all media excluding direct mail, and Sainsbury's, which utilised all media except cinema. Mars Confectionery returns with [pounds sterling]4.95m spend.

The increasing iTV market and commencement of the new football season result in the entry of B$kyB and ITV Digital in the spend table. Both predominantly utilise TV and press.
