A new agreement gives Cambridge Analytica comScore's television information to achieve better television buying for political and commercial clients.
Cambridge Analytica Taps ComScore
ComScore has signed an agreement with Cambridge Analytica, which will use comScore’s television information as a component of TV campaign strategies for political and commercial advertising clients.
With the new agreement, Cambridge Analytica will merge its behavioral psychology and data analytics platform with comScore’s television measurement for media planning, buying and return on media investment research.
ComScore’s Advanced Demographics will provide Cambridge Analytica with data into which programs, stations and dayparts deliver the highest densities of the targeted audiences that the company’s clients seek to influence.
“For years, the television industry used advertising targets that comprised demographics instead of actual product purchase or voter registration information because it was not available, resulting in wasted advertising dollars and imprecise ad targeting,” said Cambridge Analytica’s Ed DeNicola, head of TV. “Our alliance with comScore takes television ad-targeting to a new level, which not only includes better targeting, but also messaging.”
