NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations, a division of NBCUniversal, and the NBC Sports Regional Networks (RSNs) have formed a partnership with TVSquared, a specialist in TV attribution.
Effective immediately, all 42 NBC and Telemundo owned stations and nine RSNs in the US can provide advertisers, in every market covered by the stations and RSNs, with a same-day view into how their linear and digital TV campaigns are directly impacting business outcomes.
The local TV attribution solution used by all NBC and Telemundo owned stations and the RSNs is powered by TVSquared’s always-on analytics platform, and provides advertisers with transparent, timely proof of performance. With real-time analytics, advertisers can tie ad exposure to real-world business outcomes that quantify TV’s immediate impact, including website traffic, app engagement, search, SMS/phone activity, and actual sales. Live, actionable insights can be leveraged to optimise performance and inform schedule changes.
“In the past 12 months, we’ve made several enhancements to the way our sales teams do business to help us showcase the power and reach of local TV. From measuring ad campaigns through impressions and through multiple currencies, to now providing our clients with same-day attribution, the tools at our disposal will help our ad sales teams better serve advertisers/clients, while allowing us to stay on the vanguard of our rapidly changing media industry,” commented Frank Comerford, Chief Revenue Officer, NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations.
“This initiative is monumental for the local media space because, not only does it provide transparent proof of performance to advertisers, but it also unifies the measurement of linear and OTT buys in a single platform. Brands and agencies working with NBC/Telemundo owned stations and RSNs have the timely, actionable performance insights needed to maximize the business impact of campaigns across both linear and digital TV,” added Jo Kinsella, Chief Revenue Officer and EVP, TVSquared.
