ANYBODY CAN COUNT ADS!

The science is getting beyond ad count…

  • Rather than simply giving you an arbitrary number that defines your success, we provide perspective.

  • In order to gain true insight you must go beyond a simple ad count YoY.

  • ECRM provides an intuitive way to not only get an accurate ad count, but in-depth metrics including:

  • Our True Ad Count metric takes into account multiple brands or manufacturers sharing space within a single ad block.

  • Exclusivity, are you sharing space with a competitor or Private Brand?

  • We measure and aggregate the percent of physical space your brand receives in a particular channel of trade or even at a specific retail chain.

GMO criticism dominates Kellogg’s wall, crippling the benefits of its social media efforts.

“How does it feel when you poison our children with GMOs? Label your products as to what they are....stop saying they are healthy for our children. A mom has the right to know what they are serving their children. It would be nice to make a healthy product. Kellogg’s is deceptive.”

“did u know almost every American suffers from the health defects of gmo food?”

“continuing my boycott of all Kellogg’s and affiliates. Spent $227.72 today at grocery store and no GMOs in my buggy!!”

“I have a right to know what is in my food. Label GMOs.”

“The $600,000.00 you donated in opposition of Prop 37 could've fed MANY MANY hungry people. You should be so ashamed of yourself. Absolutely disgusting that you would donate that much money just so you don't have to let people know you have GMO's in your products. I wonder how the hungry would feel about that. Maybe we need to let them know.”

WHAT CHANGES CONSUMER INTENT?

We measure, analyze and report on consumer behavior

  • When a user clicks into a promotion, they can access pertinent information regarding the specific promotion. Additionally, AdComparisons.com automatically populates similar promotions.

  • Find promotions on similar products or at other local retailers.

  • Users can add promotions directly to their shopping list and share promotions socially to help build awareness.

  • This helps us measure brand loyalty, consumer intent and the factors that influence a purchasing decision.

REACHING THE CONSUMER WHEN IT COUNTS

Why not interact with the consumer when they are in the decision making process?

  • Manufacturers and Retailers alike can benefit from traditional advertising as well as personalized advertising on the AdComparison.com website.

  • Interact with consumers at a critical point in the decision making process.

  • Advertisements can be as simple as increasing brand awareness or more proactive by offering the consumer incentives like digital FSI’s.

  • Retailers can drive traffic to the store by dynamically offering the consumer a personalized promotion based on their shopping habits.

Advertising opportunities provide brand owners as well as retailers a way to interact with consumers at a critical point in the decision making process. In this example Walgreens has chosen to offer this consumer a coupon for purchasing their Nice! Brand of products.

MANAGING PRODUCT DATA & IMAGES

Case Study: Rubbermaid

  • Rubbermaid had many product images prior to our involvement, but they were not organized in a central location. Sales associates weren’t able to provide retail chains with adequate product images for both planograms and promotional opportunities.

  • We are currently imaging all new products

  • We organized all legacy images by category, product family and type in the image library

  • All images are associated with the necessary product details (measurements, UPC numbers and dimensions) that buyers need.

“ECRM was not only able to deliver consistent, high quality images that met our specifications, but their Image Library made finding them so much easier…a real time saver.”
