Launching Nielsen Compass: A World Leading And Powerful Campaign Outcomes Database
Advertisers, agencies and publishers to leverage insights from world leading, outcome measurement dataset to make data-driven decisions, optimize budgets and predict sales ROI
Nielsen announced that it is launching Nielsen Compass, a powerful, world-leading database that leverages the company’s global scale to establish syndicated normative (norms) standards for campaign outcomes measurement. The dataset covers critical elements from marketing campaigns including brands, pricing, promotions and media platforms providing a common measurement language across advertising buyers, sellers, and agencies. Each year the aggregated dataset is updated with approximately 25,000 campaign ROIs, 100 categories and 50 countries.
C-suite executives are demanding greater accountability and impact from their marketing plans. Armed with Nielsen Compass, marketers can make data-driven decisions to optimize cross-media campaigns across TV, Digital Video, Display, Social, Search, Print, Out-Of-Home and Radio to deliver the largest return on their advertising spend. For example, Nielsen has found that brands that leveraged Nielsen Compass have been able to optimize and increase their effectiveness of their cross-media investments incrementally by up to 70% more than brands that have solely relied on market perceptions and gut feelings for their media allocation. This dataset offers flexible delivery methods based on client needs, including an interactive user-interface, dynamic reports with advanced calculations via file delivery, as well as feeding directly into Nielsen’s media planning suite.
“There has never been a more dynamic and challenging time to be a marketer. Each year, billions of advertising dollars go to waste as marketers rely on incomplete data when making decisions on their cross-media strategies especially when attempting to scale across countries and brands,” said Matt Krepsik, General Manager, Planning & Outcomes Products, Nielsen. “Our mission is to deliver outcome measurement around the world so marketers can maximize their ROI, move with velocity and be budget friendly. We launched Nielsen Compass as an answer to an industry calling for better outcome reporting measurement.”
