Turner Ignite Bolsters Client Insight Capabilities through LEAP® Media Investments Partnership
Thursday, February 16, 2017
NEW YORK – Turner Ignite, a data and content-driven team within Turner Ad Sales, has announced a partnership with LEAP Media Investments, a strategic data analytics and audience development company. Turner Ignite will tap into LEAP’s audience data, which builds targetable consumer audiences based on their level of emotional attachment to specific brands. The team will be able to provide brand clients with deeper insights into their customers, from identifying their most loyal fans to opportunities to expand into new customer segments.
LEAP’s audience data is based on a patented process that quantifies consumers’ emotional attachment, or bond, to a brand, and then creates sophisticated look-alike audiences at scale. These include: brand enthusiasts, or fans, who are highly attached to a brand; brand conquests, who are moderately attached to a brand; and brand expansion audiences. Turner Ignite will explore additional applications of LEAP’s data with traditional TV viewership data to create curated brand-specific TV plans and models for digital extensions, delivering more opportunities for marketers to reach and effectively engage fans across platforms.
James Russo, senior vice president of client strategy and development, Turner Ignite explained: “As our clients’ marketplace becomes increasingly competitive, fragmented and complicated, it’s imperative that we continue to share insights which connect their most loyal fans to the linear TV, digital and social programs that drive their business outcomes. This partnership continues the vision to deliver the engaged consumers with the right messaging, right programing and right platform.”
Gary Reisman, CEO and Founder of LEAP, commented: “We are excited to work with Turner Ignite. LEAP’s unique approach is designed to help marketers leverage brand attachment, and our audiences are perfectly suited for brand oriented campaigns executed via linear and advanced TV solutions, high-end digital and social media.”
