AdAge reports that Procter & Gamble was the biggest global advertising spender for 2002, laying out a total of $4.48 billion. The company has overtaken General Motors, the top spender of 2001. In total, the top 100 global advertising marketers spent $74.2 billion, an increase of 7.1% on the previous year. To be considered global marketers, companies had to advertise in three of four regions - North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Much of Procter & Gamble’s increase was the result of the purchase and integration of various pre-existing brands and businesses such as Wella, DOVE and SLIMFAST.

The IPKat points out that a global marketing strategy depends on having global trade marks protection. This is now a more easily realisable proposition, thanks to the introduction of the Community trade mark and the recent accession of the United States to the Madrid Protocol.

maybe general motors can trim its advertising budget
maybe they wouldn't need a bailout if they planned their company budget better
