Arbitron Unveils Cross-Platform Promotion ROI Tool For Broadcast And Cable TV Programmers

Stock quotes in this article: ARB, DISCA, DISCB, DISCK

Who were exposed to the promotion campaign? On what media?  And how often? Unduplicated reach and frequency can be estimated separately by each component of the campaign (e.g. radio tune-ins, DJ chatter, in-house promos, paid commercials on other channels) as well as for the entire campaign.

Of those that were exposed to the promotion campaign, how many watched the measured episode? This is the key ROI measure for each component of the promotion campaign (e.g. radio tune-ins, DJ chatter, in-house promos, paid commercials on other channels) as well as for the entire campaign.

About Arbitron Portable People Meter Services

The Arbitron Portable People Meter device is a personal and portable device that captures a consumer's exposure to media and entertainment by passively capturing an inaudible code that can be embedded in the audio content of terrestrial, satellite and online radio broadcasts, in broadcast, cable and satellite television as well as cinema advertising and many types of place-based digital media.

Determining whether a PPM panelist is at home or out-of-home is accomplished through the use of a low power RF transmitter that is designed to act as a continuous "at-home" beacon. When a PPM panelist is at home and in range of the beacon, all exposure to encoded media collected by the PPM is tagged as at-home exposure.  When the PPM panelist is out of range of the at-home beacon, all exposure to encoded media collected by the PPM is tagged as out-of-home exposure.

The Portable People Meter ratings service is deployed to measure 48 radio markets. Four of the markets–Nassau-Suffolk (Long Island); Middlesex- Somerset-Union; San Jose and Riverside-San Bernardino–are embedded in or adjacent to the larger New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco markets. The out-of-home television viewing estimates for these four embedded or adjacent markets are included in those of the larger markets.
