The Best TV-Online Media Mix?

With audiences increasingly dividing their attention between TV and online, advertisers have sometimes struggled to find the right media mix for their cross-platform ad campaigns.  The launch of Nielsen Cross-Platform Campaign Ratings in the UK, though, is allowing brands to take the guesswork out of the equation.

Nielsen Cross-Platform Campaign Ratings helps brands maximise the effectiveness of their cross-platform ad budgets.  It takes the commercial exposures from an advertiser’s TV ads and online ads, and reports on the combined audience for the campaign. This shows advertisers, agencies and publishers just how many people, by age and gender, are seeing their ad across TV and online – either combined or separately across each platform.
