Tune in to watch 'Demand Generation', Thursday 21st November

Watch the event live online where we will be unveiling brand-new research, that will provide practical guidance on how advertisers can have the best of both worlds: substantial short-term sales and sustained base sales growth.

Two years ago our Profit Ability study with Ebiquity and Gain Theory provided the hard data to support the need for a more evidence-based approach to marketing effectiveness. This year, we have taken this landmark research further.

We’ve pulled together a data science supergroup of Gain Theory, MediaCom, and Wavemaker to show us the way to even more effective media planning.  They have pooled their extensive databanks of client data and drawn on their huge expertise to provide practical guidance for medium-to-large advertisers on how to maximise their media-driven returns.

This event will launch that new study. It will offer the most comprehensive understanding to date of the planning and measurement decisions that need to be made, alongside the resulting trade-offs in terms of speed of return, base sales growth and risk.
