Canvs & Ampsy Partner To Bring Audience Emotion Measurement To Live Events
Partnership Unlocks Granular Location-Centric Audience Emotion Insights for Biggest Brands in Music, Sports, Retail, Travel and Conferences
While Digital can’t compete with the physical magic of live events, that doesn’t stop people from live-sharing their real-world experiences across social platforms. Enter the emotion measurement leader Canvs who has partnered with the hyperlocal live events analytics company Ampsy to deliver location-centric audience emotion insights at events for the biggest brands in music, sports, retail, travel and conferences.
The Ampsy platform combines proprietary geofencing technology with real-time experience analytics to deliver a live event media aggregation service with insights about attendees who take to social during games, concerts, conferences and more. Ampsy helps identify and compartmentalize this digitally-engaged live audience, uncovering people with influence over their followers. These influencers are important ongoing sales targets, in addition to serving as candidates to be activated for future marketing campaigns.
By plugging into the Canvs API, Ampsy can now further qualify live audiences with an understanding of the event moments which most emotionally resonate with attendees. These emotion insights can be used for marketing — for example, taking the most “loved” play in the game or moment in the concert and using it as video snippet for social media marketing. Further, Canvs insights can be used to identify themes, songs and programming that most resonate with people, subsequently informing companies about where to make iterative marketing and programming changes moving forward.
“Sentiment analysis isn’t enough, and with Canvs we have a true view into how event attendees feel about the live content they’re experiencing. Emotion measurement data gives us a more granular understanding into the specific moments that people love, and with these insights we can prescribe to our partners marketing and programming initiatives, in addition to signaling specific ways to improve and elicit more emotions at future events,” said Jeremy Gocke, CEO at Ampsy.
Ampsy creates a virtual fence around a physical location, uncovering real-time posts from geo-enabled social media accounts — with no need for beacons, hashtags or third party app data.
