AffinityAnswers leverages real time “surveys” of hundreds of million consumers globally across leading digital and social media platforms in order to draw connections between brand engagers and media property engagers. The result is a comprehensive picture of your ideal consumer’s media consumption, forming a blueprint for how to reach these scalable and brand addressable audiences across all media types.

BrandPlanner allows you to discover where the most qualified audiences are for your brand. We use millions of data points volunteered by your own brand’s social engagers to tell you what TV shows your consumers watch, what websites they surf, what other brands they’re into, what music they listen to, and which sports they pay the most attention to.

In addition to media planning, you can leverage this data to:

  • Identify and court the most relevant sponsors, spokespeople, and co-branding opportunities for your brand

Media publishers are in constant content production mode, and the value of advertising space will vary by brand depending on what the content is.  Using BrandPlanner, media publishers can determine which brands would be the most appropriate advertisers for their audience and context, leading to advertising premiums.

Digital publishers can evolve from plain keyword-based context to rich audio-visual-based context placement within their video content, that will help advertisers’ message stick at a higher rate among your audience.

One of the key advantages of TrueAffinity™ as a media metric is that it measures relationships across different media types.  It can be utilized in the same manner to find the best advertisers for TV shows, movies, music, websites, games and apps.

BrandPlanner can even help determine what type of content publishers should produce / acquire by revealing how attractive it will be to brand advertisers.
