GB: Škoda appoints FCB for global creative duties - How did the brand do under the previous agency?

Škoda has awarded its global creative account to FCB Inferno. While the FCB Inferno - Škoda partnership will begin April 2023 onwards, incumbent agencies Optimist and Thjnk (which have handled the account since November 2018) will be involved in a transition period until the end of June.

We explore YouGov data to see how the brand has done so far in Great Britain under its previous creative agency, AOR.

According to YouGov BrandIndex - which tracks consumer sentiment towards thousands of brands daily - the automaker’s Ad Awareness score in the UK has remained unchanged. The metric - which indicates how many and which consumers are noticing a brand’s advertising - went from 5% on 1 January 2018 to 8% on 10 April 2023.

When it comes to attitudes towards advertising amongst the general British population, data reveals that most respondents feel overwhelmed by advertising. Data from YouGov Profiles - which covers demographic, psychographic, attitudinal and behavioral consumer metrics - shows that 65% of the general UK population feels bombarded by advertising and  more than half of them (56%) agree that personalised adverts creep them out.
