    Mindshare FAST@Grey London combines media, data and creative in pioneering collaboration.

    By Grey LDN | January 25, 2017

    WPP creative agency Grey London and media agency Mindshare have partnered to establish Mindshare FAST@Grey London: a bespoke unit that combines creative, data and media planning and buying to deliver adaptive, personalised, programmatic advertising – at an unprecedented speed and scale.

    It marks the first time that Mindshare’s FAST (Future Adaptive Specialist Team) has partnered with a creative agency on an ongoing basis. FAST integrates SEO, paid search, digital display, paid social and programmatic and currently operates out of four regional hubs, including London. Mindshare FAST@Grey London will be based out of Grey’s Hatton Garden office and complement Grey Response, the agency’s recently launched direct marketing and CRM division.  

    The model sees the creative and media agencies working together from brief to delivery – and beyond. By collectively using a wide range of behavioural and contextual data signals to optimise the media buy and improve the relevancy and delivery of the message, the team will be able to deliver brand and direct response comms across the entire purchase journey.

    Examples of these signals – which when combined are used to drive both creative and media buy – include profile signals such as gender, age, socio-demographic; contextual signals such as geo-location, weather, time/date; behavioural signals such as search, browsing and site data; and re-messaging signals such as purchase history, basket and site data.

    Mindshare FAST@Grey London is also fuelled by the insights and data from WPP owned Kantar, the home to the world’s leading research, data and insight brands.

    Leo Rayman, CEO, Grey London says: “This is our play with Mindshare for freshly baked, adaptive creative. It’s an end-to-end fusion of creative, media, data and tech that, crucially, allows us to build bespoke campaign narratives across the entire comms journey, not just at point of sale. No one is really doing this, and we’ve put together the ideal mix of people and resources to do it and do it well.”

    Mindshare FAST@Grey London is already in production on its first project, a brand campaign for Volvo expected to launch in March, while other campaigns are in the pipeline.  

    Marco Rimini, CEO Mindshare Worldwide Central team said: ‘Mindshare’s success has always been founded on creating the right solution for a client. Mindshare FAST@Grey London continues this by bringing together the best WPP data, research, insights, media planning, technology and creative services into one simplified offering, in a way that makes sense for clients.’
