ValueClick, Inc. (NASDAQ:VCLK) today released new research commissioned by its ValueClick Media division on the topic of branding through digital channels, proving the advantage that ValueClick Media’s total media solution provides to brand marketers versus ad networks. The study, fielded, tracked and analyzed by recognized digital marketing research experts InsightExpress, sought to objectively quantify the impact that ValueClick Media’s offerings and approach have on the most important metrics brand marketers look at to determine the success of their advertising efforts. Available as a white paper at http://www.valueclickmedia.com/whitepapers/the-value-of-brand-advertising, the brand value study analyzed nearly 30 branding campaigns delivered by ValueClick Media for major brand marketers, compared with over 100 similar campaigns from competitors in InsightExpress’ InsightNorms™ normative database.
