Thus maintaining a geographical balance for its various businesses and reducing the group exposure to any single industry, client or geographic area. Omnicom and other advertising agencies invested and organized to provide all communications capabilities in addition to traditional advertising services, such as sales promotion, public relations, collateral materials, and direct mail. This shift was motivated by economics: Budgets were moving away from media advertising to other resources, and agencies wanted to retain that income. Agencies also wanted to provide coordinated campaigns for their clients. Yet the majority of clients didn't buy for several reasons. First, clients didn't see a clear cost benefit from combining all these services in one advertising agency. Their analysis indicated it would be cheaper to disperse this work among different suppliers. Second, and more importantly, many clients didn't have confidence in the ability of advertising agencies to deliver specialized services such as annual reports, direct mail, and PR. They felt more secure going to specialists. Finally, clients had administrative concerns about putting all their eggs in one basket.

Conclusion

There is not much space for traditional media in future. In line of these changes following are the recommendations for Omnicom to retain its market leadership in future: * Need to develop true expertise in a variety of integrated marketing communications areas. * Need to create organizational structures that make it possible for individuals with expertise in a variety of communications areas to work well together both internally and externally. * With the emergence the agencies with interactive experience in Web marketing and advertising (digital advertising) will have a jump on agencies that do not have interactive skills. Need to develop further expertise in web marketing. * Cultural differences have a significant impact; agencies such as Omnicom have yet to harness their global experience in bridging cultural differences. * Integration of marketing communication elements will further strengthen the company position. 6.
