Sample Business Issues

Scenario 1: Time Spent

Your network is looking to entice an advertiser to invest ad dollars on your network and website. What's the best way to show them how much time consumers are spending on both media?


Step 1: Unify your Cross Platform Sample.

Step 2 : Run a Segmentation Report for your TV viewers.

Step 3: Run a Segmentation Report for your Internet users.

Step 4: Use the Average Time Spent per Person per Day column to determine how many minutes consumers used on an average day. To convert the Internet seconds of use to minutes, divide by 60.


Scenario 2: Response Effect

Your website has done some advertising on several networks. You want to see what percentage of viewers who saw the ads went to your website. How can you accomplish this?


Step 1: Unify your Cross Platform Sample

Step 2: Run an Ad schedule for the spots that ran on Television using the Cross Platform Sample.

Step 3: Run a Number of Seconds Segmentation report to identify users of your website.

Step 4 : Run a Reach and Frequency report to examine the reach of your ad campaign against the users and non-users of your website. On the demographics selection screen you'll pull in the segmented users and non-users of your website from Step 3.
