- Media Planning Research In The Coming Months
(Online Spin on
Cory, Another problem with the current set of research tools available to planners is that none of their data sets seems to match up. If you look at traffic levels (or demo/psycho components for that matter) on Nielsen, comScore, Alexa, Quantcast and Compete, you'll see 5 vastly different answers. I am not sure advising planners to jump deeper into this pool of data is a great idea considering they all have differing methodologies and results. It's also worth mentioning that the automation of digital planning and buying through some of the new tools might deliver efficiencies for some clients, but for others these tools simply don't help drive their metrics (e.g. big impact, high SOV, cross-media integrated plans). I do completely agree about working to increase agency efficiency, but I'm not sure adopting the tools you reviewed is the best recommendation for improving efficiency. A better investment, for example, might be to put media planners through rigorous training to improve negotiating or time management skills.
