Ad Metrix is being used by our department to measure and understand the importance of display ads across the web and social platforms. We use it to view where ads ran, top advertisers in an industry, and specifically for online advertising trends. We can connect different data sources together and attempt to tell the story behind our advertisers and the industry in general. This in turn helps us drive business growth. We are also able to understand and evaluate the impact of all cross channel marketing efforts to maximize return on investment and drive future marketing decisions for all the local networks on our station.
  • AdMetrix Quick Reports is an excellent tool to help full a broad variety of reports across our advertising and industry/trends in general. It helps to quickly and efficiently access reports and maximize usage of the tool.
  • Advertiser Trend is especially helpful to pull trending data for various publishes and target audiences across large periods of time.
  • Demographic Profile has been helpful to pull various metrics across a specific target audience. This helps provide data to Ad Sales to target correct users in specific demographics with well placed ads.
  • Training would be an area of improvement. I have had to self train in most reports and am not as well versed in the tool as I would like to be.
  • No other major issues with the tool as of yet
Ad Metrix is well suited for teams that are directly tied to sales teams as well as teams that use DMP and other platforms to help target and retarget specific users for ads or site visits/views.

It may not be as useful if the organization is not targeting specific users or isn't interested in their consumption habits and what competitors are focusing on.

comScore allows us to gather valuable insight on our site visitors to inform our current or potential clients on the type of people coming to our website and reading our content. It also helps to see the demographic of those who visit our site most frequently and the category in which we lack visitors.
  • Breaks down categories of those who who are more likely to visit our site that come from XYZ backgrounds by percentage.
  • Compares our site stats to other competitor statistics.
  • Allows us to better target our viewers with specific ads.
  • The layout isn't very intuitive. Training is the best way to learn how to use this tool
  • Your work doesn't automatically save, so if you by accidentally hit back, you lose everything you were working on.
Well suited when wanting to know more about the audience that's visiting your site and how ads can be more personal for certain viewers. For instance, we see that people who make a house hold income of 100k+ are also more likely to be interested in health care/ pharmaceutical topics. Then, we can gear our pharma ads towards these people in a smarter way.

We use ComScore to gain insights and measurement on how our display ads are being viewed by our audience on the web and how they compare to competition. ComScore is a great starting point for me to do competitive research for my clients. I can use it to get a quick snapshot of who else is active in the space, and who is dominating it. It helps me gain a better handle on demographics, share of voice and reach/frequency for the clients industry and specific to their campaigns in market. It's a great data source.
  • Site Analytics data - ComScore puts all of the stats you need in an easy to read dashboard. I don't need to search around like I do in Google Analytics to find out who is visiting my client's site, where they are browsing, how long they are engaging with the content. It's also really easy to integrate conversion data alongside website analytics. The webpage heat maps are also an awesome way to look at where people are engaging with the client's webpages.
  • Infographics, charts - I love how easy it is to pull a client ready chart that I can insert into a presentation for the client to show various stats pertaining to their campaigns (e.g. most visited pages, most viewed videos, MoM stats on orders/revenue/average order value.
  • Report Builder - Makes it simple to pull reports on site analytics that I can easily add filters to. I can get all the data I need in one report. I do a lot of presentation building for the clients on a monthly basis. This makes it more efficient for me to pull out sharable insights.
  • Tagging - I have trouble tagging/tracking client pages with pretty much any platform I use. ComScore is no different. I prefer using Google Analytics and Tag Manager to tag and track client pages as the clients seem to understand how to implement them a bit easier than any other type. Mobile tagging is especially clunky.
  • Social analytics - there needs to be better integration with social profiles and platforms. Clients are asking about this a lot more now. We can get data straight from the social platform dashboard, i.e. Facebook Business Manager, but it would be nice to have this integrated with web analytics in one place.
  • Processing time - Pulling reports with a lot of data can take what seems like forever. Speeding up the data pull process would be huge.
ComScore is great for the research portion of media planning. It's robust with data insights on your client's audience and its competitors, and it manages to house everything in an easy to use platform. It helps gain learning and insight into what channels and tactics we should invest in and what partners are out there in the space.
