New York, NY – Sept. 30, 2019 – Nielsen and Visa have signed a multi-year contract extension to measure marketing return on investment globally across key regions. With this agreement, the world’s leader in digital payments will use Nielsen’s Marketing Mix Modeling solution to gain greater visibility into both marketing performance and other business drivers to optimize marketing investments on an ongoing basis.
Visa has been a Nielsen client since 2013, during which the initial U.S. engagement expanded to include Asia-Pacific, CEMEA (Central Europe, Middle East and Africa) and other key regions. Nielsen’s data and models have informed decisions related to recognized campaigns, such as its Money Is Changing initiative and the global rollout of It’s Everywhere You Want to Be, among others. Visa is leveraging the solution to discover which marketing channels and tactics are most effective, and what the ROI of marketing spend is by initiative and country.
“Understanding what drives share of wallet can be extremely difficult in an organization as diverse—both in product offerings and geographical footprint—as Visa,” said Lana Busignani, EVP, U.S. Analytics
at Nielsen. “Visa was an early leader in embracing marketing mix modeling to measure the effectiveness of the vast array of channels and tactics they deploy worldwide. Looking back on past performance has opened a door into what is possible for the marketing organization and business moving forward, and Nielsen is thrilled to play a role in helping to define what the future holds for this iconic brand.”
