TVadSync Integrates Unacast Data to Give Advertisers Clarity into How TV-to-Digital Cross-platform Retargeting Drives Customers to Stores

Combination of Smart TV Data and Transparent Location Insights Allows Targeted, Attributable Cross-screen Media

NEW YORK, July 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TVadSync, the leader in TV-to-Digital cross-platform marketing, has partnered with Unacast, the leading transparent location data platform, to finally give brands a clear picture of how combined TV and digital media campaigns influence their customers’ real-world actions.

TVadSync will now use Unacast’s transparent location data to measure foot traffic to store locations, providing marketers using TVadSync’s cross-screen targeting platform with valuable attribution measurement.

TV ad spend is forecast to decline this year, falling to less than one-third of total U.S. ad spend. One key reason marketers are shifting their budgets into other channels is that TV is not as measurable as digital media. The partnership between TVadSync and Unacast changes this dynamic, combining cutting-edge cross-screen media and transparent location data to measure footfall traffic and help advertisers fully quantify the impact of their combined TV and digital advertising. This ability to finally measure real-world actions triggered by exposure to cross-channel campaigns has the power to make TV an attractive proposition once again.

“TV has always been the platform to build brands. No other medium can challenge its ability to elicit emotion at huge scale, and that’s something brands can still very much capitalize on,” said Ronan Higgins, CEO of TVadSync. “With TV and digital cross-platform campaigns, advertisers, for whom footfall is an important KPI, no longer have to be worried they won’t be able to adequately gauge campaign efficacy with transparency - while at the same time they can look forward to driving huge lifts in location visits.”

Unacast’s unique data assets include IP address information. When combined with smart TV data, sourced by TVadSync from Inscape, this allows brands to understand which consumers saw ads on both their TV and a mobile device, and which of those later visited a store or point of interest.

"Our goal is to understand how people move about the real world, and present those insights in a clear, transparent fashion,” said Thomas Walle, CEO of Unacast. “The only way that advertisers and businesses can make informed decisions is if they have clarity into the location data and what it tells them. We feel that the TVadSync product is powerful, and Unacast's transparent data finally gives brand marketers the proof that their campaigns are driving store visits."
