Republican Analytics Group 0ptimus Partners With Fourthwall Media For TV Viewing Data

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

DULLES, Va. and WASHINGTON, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading Republican data management organization, 0ptimus, announced today an agreement with FourthWall Media™, the largest independent source of cable set top box viewing data. This viewership data can help political analytics firms like 0ptimus identify various voter segments and target different political messages into just the right homes for maximum efficiency and effectiveness. FourthWall Media, through its MassiveData division, maintains a panel of 4.7 million television viewers in over 1.8 million homes.

"If you look at campaigns and issue advocacy pushes, TV spend will generally represent 50-80% of budget, and yet the status quo is a surprising inability to ensure our TV creative is effective, and an inability to truly target our buys to segments in our vote file," said Brian Stobie, Partner at 0ptimus. "FourthWall data will allow us to talk to the different segments of voters we have always seen in our vote files, but unable to target effectively on TV. It will allow us to deliver specific messages to specific segments in the most efficient buy-pattern possible. Put simply, this will help us move TV spend away from "spray and pray" generic messages, to targeted niche messages to niche segments in the voting electorate."

"The most sophisticated marketers in the country are political analytics firms," saidPatrick Peters, FourthWall Media GM of Programming. "They are working to drive action and persuasion among very small targeted groups to win elections. Our viewer panel can provide any organization amazing insights into which groups of consumers are watching which programming, if they're viewing political ads and how they're reacting to those individual 30 second spots. Political data firms are ahead of the curve, and have already identified the local hot-button issues and the different voter groups who find them important. Using our data, they then find the specific programming those voters who care are watching. It worked for the 2012 Obama re-election campaign who were the first to utilize our panel and it will work again for 0ptimus. We look forward to working with them. This continues our Best and Brightest theme. We think the world of the 0ptimus team."
