NinthDecimal, the leading omni-channel marketing platform and Inscape, the leading provider of smart TV viewing data, today announced a strategic partnership that will enhance NinthDecimal’s portfolio of TV measurement and audience solutions. The combination of Inscape’s 12M+ smart TVs with NinthDecimal’s consumer offline behavior from over 200M devices allow marketers to quantify the impact of their television advertising campaigns.
“Incorporating smart TV viewing data is essential for true omni-channel and cross-device measurement,” said Ken Norcross, Director of Business Development for Inscape. “By marrying our data with NinthDecimal’s offline behavioral insights, marketers are able to access real-time reporting tied to the largest set of smart TV data in the US.”
While massive changes in how consumers watch TV are generating new marketing options for brands, the emergence of these new opportunities has created challenges in determining the best way to activate TV budgets. NinthDecimal and Inscape are working together to meet this challenge by helping marketers optimize their TV marketing budgets in the most effective way. Brands across retail, QSR, automotive as well as major TV networks are already using Inscape and NinthDecimal’s range of solutions to measure TV advertising with real business outcomes such as store visits. This includes:
- Measuring the impact of foot traffic and incremental visits related to their TV buys in order to make optimization decisions.
- Tying their most valued customers and their competitor’s customers to top indexing programming to plan their TV buys.
- Measuring the effectiveness of different media combinations such as TV-only advertising versus TV and digital advertising.
“The days of measuring TV ad effectiveness solely on reach and frequency metrics like GRPs are over,” said Brian Kilmer, SVP of Advanced Television at NinthDecimal. “As brands and agencies continue to test the effectiveness of different TV viewing experiences, it’s more important than ever for them to measure their campaigns against real business outcomes like foot traffic. Our partnership with Inscape is helping brands across every vertical make impactful media planning and buying decisions in real-time to drive the most valuable results.”
The emergence and growth of new TV advertising platforms are generating strong market demand for NinthDecimal’s TV business which grew 400% last year and will more than double in 2019. NinthDecimal has deep expertise in TV-to-offline attribution having measured its first Linear TV campaign with offline behavior more than 5 years ago.
