Nielsen's 3r Framework: Making Ad Effectiveness Make Sense

The valuation of business spending on traditional media advertising has always had multi-billion dollar implications for advertisers and media companies. There is a lot at stake in collecting data on viewership and in assessing the audience impact for those investments; did the ads reach the right consumers and what was the impact.

New technologies have created significant shifts in the way consumers view traditional advertising making it even more important to measure the impact of that advertising across multiple mediums (TV, Digital, etc.).

But new consumer behaviors have also created opportunities to leverage new data sources to gain even greater insights into" who is watching what" and "what was the impact".

This talk will describe some of those challenges and the latest advances in that evolving data collection challenge.
