Tre Kronor Media Stockholm
A letter from the CEO of Tre Kronor Stockholm:
Q3 has been a good quarter. The existing clients are developing very well so the financial projection is showing that we will hit our targets for the full year.
New clients in Q3 are Advisa, a loan collector, and Enjoy Wine, a wine distributor. We have also launched a new brand, SpelLandet Casino, for our customer Global Gaming.
Media investments are above our budget predictions as we continue to be successful with our up-sell into our insight & research product. As we keep good cost control, we will reach a higher revenue YTD for Q3.
Two new employees have been added to our Social Media department. We have open positions within Insight and SEM for the moment. The plan is to have those recruited before end of year.
The trends for media investments are shown in the media barometer, presented below.
OOH is really killing it at the moment with tremendous development and huge demand, mainly from betting and casino brands, +20% in October and +21.5% YTD. TV is also showing good growth, +6.4% in October and +9.9% YTD.
CEO Tre Kronor Media:
MEDIA AGENCY OF THE YEAR 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2013 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017
TreKronor Media Denmark
This past week, our office was awarded a “Gazelle”. Each year the Danish business newspaper Børsen awards the prestigious “Borsens Gazelle award” to the fastest growing companies in Denmark. Recipient companies must have at a minimum doubled revenue in terms of sales or gross profit during a four-year period.
Business is good in Denmark. New clients that we’ve been running campaigns for include: Occhio, Tamaris, Nordnet, and Deichman. We are also promoting our research offer and are helping some clients with pure research such as Bacher. With the new year upon us, we plan on strategically going after business to strengthen revenue. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________
