Drawbridge and TiVo Research Partner to Link TV and Digital for Cross-Channel Reach and Attribution

Influence of TV Ads on Online and Offline Consumer Shopping Behavior Now Quantifiable with Placed

San Mateo, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

Drawbridge, the leading cross-device technology company, and TiVo Research, a subsidiary of TiVo Inc., today announced a new relationship that extends Drawbridge’s cross-device capabilities to include TV viewership data as targetable attributes across digital devices. Brands can now use the Drawbridge Cross-Device Platform to reach segments of consumers based on TV shows or commercials watched, as modeled based on anonymized single-source TV viewership data reported by TiVo Research, enabling marketers to reach consumers in a truly cross-device and cross-channel manner. In addition, the partnership enables brands to leverage the Drawbridge Connected Consumer Graph™ to understand how reach on TV influences offline actions, such as store visits and purchases.
“Understanding the full view of a consumer across digital devices and into offline channels is critical to optimizing and maximizing a brand’s return on marketing investment,” said Drawbridge VP of Product Management and Partnerships, Rahul Bafna. “By adding TV viewership data into the Connected Consumer Graph, Drawbridge provides marketers with a scalable and accurate cross-channel solution for reaching consumers and understanding cross-channel purchase paths.”
The two companies also announced that they will be able to measure lift in visits to retail stores after exposure to TV advertisements thanks to Drawbridge’s partnership with Placed, the leader in connecting ads to store visits. The three companies conducted a test that was able to measure lift in visits to retail stores after consumers were exposed to brand messaging on TV. This capability represents a significant addition to the applications of the Drawbridge Connected Consumer Graph, as the company is now able to connect ad exposure on linear TV, via data modeling based on anonymized single-source TV viewership data, to other devices owned by consumers in order to measure the impact of TV on digital and offline sales.
“As consumers increasingly adopt multi-channel purchase paths, it is becoming a necessity for marketers to measure the impact of advertising across all channels on visits to physical points of purchase,” said David Shim, Founder and CEO at Placed. “With the world’s largest opt-in location audience, measuring over half a billion first party locations every day, Placed is the currency for actionable offline metrics for marketers. We are excited to partner with Drawbridge to help show the value of connecting the digital and physical worlds with TiVo Research and Drawbridge.”
