Put Five Years of TV Ad Performance At Your Fingertips With TV Brand Effect Ad Snapshots

3 minute read | June 2015

For years, many of the biggest marketers in the world have used Nielsen’s TV Brand Effect solution to optimize their TV ad investments. Subscribers receive in-depth reporting from Nielsen research analysts on the memorability and likeability of their TV ads as well as their competitors’. They also have access to more than 10 years of industry norms—all measured in a real-world environment. Marketers can then use this data to enhance their ad creative, refine their media allocation and establish key performance indicators.

And now, in step with the times, Nielsen is readying an on-demand way for subscribers to access their results—a complement to their regular Nielsen analyst consultations. Enter Ad Snapshots, our new TV Brand Effect dashboard that provides real-time, hands-on access to TV ad performance and more, whenever marketers need it.

The data you need, all in one place

Having multiple data sets across multiple target demographics can make it difficult for marketers to get a comprehensive understanding of how an ad performs. The Ad Snapshots dashboard places Brand Memorability, Information and Emotive Power scores, along with TV media weight, all together and side-by-side for easy viewing. With aggregate data in one place, marketers can simply click on an ad and see detailed data about it—when it aired, on what channel, how it performed. You can also see how your competitors’ ads performed too. And demographic drilldowns and performance by metric are just one click away.
