Media Synergy Studies (MSS)
Media Synergy Studies help clients understand the complementary effects of integrated media campaigns and the contribution of each medium against different objectives and audiences. Clients gain insights about honing the success of their cross-media marketing campaigns. Media Synergy Studies answer important questions about the separate and combined effects of major advertising channels, such as:
Which media were most effective in increasing metrics such as Awareness, Message Association, Favorability and Purchase Intent?
Did the combined impact of online/offline exceed their respective contributions?
Which audiences were most influenced by the respective media channels?
Against what metrics was each medium most effective?

Cost Effectiveness Studies (CES)
Cost Effectiveness Studies provide information and insight as to the relative cost effectiveness of the different media components in a campaign. This information helps advertisers determine which aspects of their integrated campaigns are working most efficiently, and, in some cases, whether incremental spending on additional media vehicles is justified by the cost. The research also provides recommendations for future budget allocations.
Which media were most cost effective in increasing different metrics and against different audiences?
