Digital, Agency Opps: Universal Music bolsters comms team ahead of Q4 campaign


Subject: Music, PR, Digital, Print, Radio, TV, Cinema, Outdoor.

Company: Universal Music UK, located in London, England, is a division of Universal Music Group, the world’s leading music company with wholly owned record operations or licensees in 77 countries. 

Opportunity: Promoted UK Music comms director James Murtagh-Hopkins to senior director of communications, effective immediately.

He'll report to SVP Caryn Tomlinson and will work with Universal Music's management team, labels and operating companies to communicate its global business strategy. PR agencies would do well to reach out. 

Murtagh-Hopkins joins a long list of Pathmatics data shows a decrease in digital for the year, we predict this is just the lull before a wave of new releases and artists flood the scene.

Just Arena Media for planning and buying, so a Q4 campaign is imminent. ATL and online sellers should reach out immediately to media contacts. Target music-loving millennials with an integrated focus that heavily leans on video.

Creative agencies may already be in touch, but continue to contact while there's still music to be played to pick up last minute pounds. There will be a festive season emphasis which is usually followed by new releases in January.

Additional Information

Experience: With over 15 years of communications, Murtagh-Hopkins developed skills in music, media comm, corporate comm, digital and PR. He's worked for major entertainment brands, including Sony Music Entertainment, Vector Management, Pulse Films, LCD Soundsystem, Pollen and UK Music. 

Media Spend: Last year Universal spent over £8.1 million on media primarily across radio, TV and outdoor, with some devoted to press, cinema and digital. Peak spending occurs in Q3-Q4 and early this year saw similar spending.

Digital Breakdown: Per Pathmatics, since January, Universal Music Group spent £6.2m on video adverts that generated 103m impressions. Almost all were placed site direct on youtube.com. The company also spent £48k on desktop ads that gained 15m impressions.

Compared to year-to-date 2015, this is a drastic decrease from when £62.5m was spent on video ads that nabbed a whopping 1 billion impressions. Meanwhile, over £1.5m was spent on desktop presence and the company even spent £20k on mobile and tablet ads.

Competitors: Include Sony Music Holdings.
