Johannesburg, March 4, 2016 – As the digital landscape evolves, it’s important that companies have deeper understanding of their customers to ensure advertising effectiveness. Effective Measure (EM) and the IAB SA have launched EM Xtra, a range of services outside the core measurement products. These new offerings to the South African market provide deeper audience profiling and digital research to uncover strategic insights for the industry.
EM Xtra’s offerings position digital measurement and research as cutting edge amongst the media industry. These new offerings will provide publishers and media owners with the ability to add more value to their advertising message and establish closer working relationship between media owners and digital advertising buyers. Preferential rates of these products will be given to all IAB members.
“Pressure on allocating marketing spend to local publishers from global players is a hot topic. The introduction of these EM Xtra products will increase awareness of local online audiences and how to reach them, with a focus on audience optimisation rather than environment,” explains Nicolle Harding, Country Manager Effective Measure South Africa. “Eventually they will afford EM the opportunity to introduce benchmarks, improved media measurement and guidelines on issues such as ad viewability and ad recognition,” Harding added.
These new offerings will provide publishers and media owners with the ability to add more value to their advertising message and establish closer working relationship between media owners and digital advertising buyers. In addition to, and outside of audience measurement, Effective Measure will offer these additional products to publishers, agencies and advertisers that have opted into this separate ecosystem. These EM Xtra products include:
1. Online Market and Customer Research
2. Campaign Effectiveness Studies
3. Custom Data Solutions
4. emSegments and emPower
5. Data Visualisation
