Marketers Can Now Measure GSTV Video Advertising Performance at a Granular Level
At the time of this announcement, Chandos Quill, VP of Global Data and Strategic Alliances at Acxiom, said, “The growth of non-traditional digital media channels has brought to light the need for more effective tools to measure campaign performance at the customer level.”
Analysis of billions of consumer purchases demonstrates that GSTV viewers spend significantly more across retailers, services, consumer goods and other sectors, following a fuel transaction.
Chandos added, “With this unique new offering from Acxiom and GSTV, marketers can now measure at a granular level how GSTV campaigns contribute to key performance indicators, such as customer acquisition, spending, and lifetime value.”

The Role of LiveRamp and Location Data-based Marketing
The new offering helps brands determine whether customers were exposed to GSTV ads through person-based location data available via the LiveRamp® IdentityLink™ Data Store. Leading identity resolution technologies are then used to unify anonymized location and transaction data for a complete customer view.
The novel measurement approach allows marketers to assess the impact of GSTV’s unique video platform and control for other media exposure, enabling marketers to demonstrate the value of their GSTV media spend. It will also improve targeting and optimization by leveraging measurement insights for subsequent campaigns.
