Industry news - Arena Media launches social media unit

At Mac Expo, we believe in providing news on every front that relates to the digital industry and we believe in making competition healthy. Thus here we are covering the latest news about our digital industry and its related agencies.

Owned by Havas, Arena Media has proactively launched a new media unit called 247 Social which would have service capabilities in media and PR.

Dan Clays, managing director at Arena Media, said: “We have called it 247 Social because of the reference to the channel being always-on, but also to reinforce our belief that social requires dedicated expertise working closely with all media.”

As the company is young and has a hard road ahead to build its reputation in the ecommerce world, they would work currently on the accounts currently existing with Arena Media. They would thus deal with clients such as Domino’s.

247 Social will work alongside Omnicom’s M2M and Publicis Groupe’s ZenithOptimedia, both of which manage the other digital and media channels for HP.

Malcolm Devoy, previously head of digital innovation at Arena Quantum, will head up the division and will report to Clays.

Clays said: “We took the decision to launch the brand as there are many advertisers who are not getting agency support from their media agency across all elements of social – strategy, media buying, content build, distribution – which has effectively lead to the emergence of a number of boutique social agencies.”
