Advertising in the global age: Transnational campaigns and pan-European television channels

Chalaby, J. (2008). Advertising in the global age: Transnational campaigns and pan-European television channels. Global Media and Communication, 4(2), pp. 139-156. doi: 10.1177/1742766508091517

Abstract

The first pan-regional satellite TV stations in Europe ran into financial difficulties because too few companies had the interest and ability to run international advertising campaigns. Their financial shape improved with the upturn of the pan-European advertising market in the 1990s. The pool of international advertisers expanded as multinationals adjusted their marketing strategy to the challenges and opportunities of globalization. The advertising industry restructured, creating media buying agencies with specialist knowledge of pan-European television and the network to run transnational advertising campaigns that mix local and global objectives. Pan-European TV stations began to offer flexible local advertising windows and integrated communication solutions involving cross-format and cross-platform opportunities for advertisers.
