Information is at the core of relevant advertising strategies and campaigns. Let’s face it. As a media entity, information collection is pretty much at the core of what we do. It’s sort of a requirement if you’re going to report on things. So, we’ve become very proficient at it. If there’s a good source of secondary data, it’s probable that we have a subscription or access to the data. And there is a lot of proprietary information we collect, too. So if you have a need, or you’re working on a project, call us. You may be surprised at how much information we have an how quickly we can deliver it.
The kind of information we typically have resides in four key areas. Audiences – the groups you are trying to reach. The market – key data on the Valley of the Sun and just about any of the markets in which Gannett operates. Media intelligence – how the audiences you’re trying to reach use media. Messaging – how well received are your messages?
As a media entity, we are able to collect large amounts of data on myriad audiences, everything from basic demographic data to spending by audiences in key verticals is regularly collected and can be supplied to you.
We track Phoenix market migration information, economic and business data, changes in tax revenues, employment – anything that impacts your business.
Influencing hearts and minds requires the ability to reach targets. And how people are reached has become a whole lot more complex. While we realize your in-house planners have access to a certain amount of data, there is likely information that a large media concern may be able to provide to create a more robust picture.
And we’re able to review competitive media spending within any number of business categories.
If there are specific Prizm Lifestage groups you are trying to reach, we can provide information on how to effectively reach them.
In this results-driven era, we’ve gotten quite serious about measurement. And because of our media properties, we have the unique ability to dialogue with audiences on a regular basis. This is the perfect scenario for ad testing. We regularly conduct post-campaign testing, we test the relevance of offers pre-flight (before they run) in order to help marketers decide what they should advertise BEFORE they spend a dime on media. We conduct ongoing tracking studies, reviewing things like product usage, product awareness or conversion rates among target groups over a number of years (long-term tracking). One of the products we’ve been most excited about is our Ad Effectiveness study methodology, which has been adopted by all the Gannett publications. It allows us to examine norms based on thousands of ads from across the country. This aids greatly in creative refinement.
MAIN POINT: Media companies have a range of products that can reach mass audiences or niche audiences depending on the needs of the client.
