This panel would highlight how (and why) brands need to obtain a three-dimensional view of a target audience and how, by having deeper insights into their habits and likes, they can predict customer behavior with greater accuracy and ultimately power more effective campaigns.

If creative drives nearly 50% of ad effectiveness, then ensuring you leverage the best possible creative is obviously paramount. In-flight campaign optimization is, of course, fundamental. But if you’re a marketer looking to truly maximize your spend, why wouldn’t you ensure that your ad creative is optimized before it even goes out the door?
In the audio world, arguably the hottest market right now, leaders from Pandora to Visa to Megaphone are making pre-market creative analysis a staple of how they buy and sell. Why? Because they know how starting every campaign with evidence of the most resonant creative -- and how a platform-based solution brings that evidence quickly -- means the smartest possible spending across the entire flight.
One of the longstanding industry challenges is to provide marketers the ability to run advertising effectiveness measurement at will, on demand. Instead, there is a material lag from when you commission the study to when you can read the campaign. Why is this material? Because, if your objective is to maximize return on ad spend then in-flight optimization (IFO) is critical and on-demand measurement is key to timely IFO.
IRI, Google, Sam’s Club, Nestle-Starbucks and Annalect will discuss the merits of such a solution that will meet this need through a completely automated on-demand measurement for offline sales lift and matched market studies.
