trueAnthem and FOX Broadcasting Company Honored With 2012 Next Gen Market Research Innovation Award

trueAnthem, the industry leader in earned media intelligence for advertisers, content publishers and digital marketers, and Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) today announced they have received the 2012 Next Gen Market Research (NGMR) Innovation Award for their collaboration in social media measurement. Next Gen Market Research (NGMR), the premier online networking group for market research, information services and insights professionals, honored trueAnthem and FOX with the award at IIR USA’s 2012 The Market Research Event (TMRE) in Boca Raton, Fla. earlier this week.

The NGMR Innovation Award recognizes companies and individuals that have demonstrated outstanding leadership as change agents and made significant contributions to harnessing disruptive innovation to drive research industry progress. The Innovation Award for social media measurement was given to trueAnthem and FOX for their joint efforts in developing and testing new social media key performance indicators (KPIs) that can potentially serve as industry standard measurement metrics.

“While the concept of earned media and influencers are not new to our industry, instantaneous measurement of social interactions and the ‘right’ way to define social KPIs have largely been in a pioneering phase,” said Melva Benoit, senior vice president of audience innovation, research and strategy at Fox Broadcasting Company. “Together, FOX and trueAnthem are proud to offer a proven method for measuring earned media that the industry can consider as we move into the future.”

“Our goal has always been to provide the intelligence inside the share button within social media experiences,” said Chris Hart, CEO of trueAnthem. “Partnering with FOX gave us the opportunity to prove the value of that patent-pending technology. We’re excited to be receiving recognition for our collaboration with FOX and to help the industry move forward with a meaningful way to measure the impact of social media marketing.”

FOX partnered with trueAnthem to track social sharing, quantify the value of earned media and identify social influencers for several of its television series this year. trueAnthem upgraded FOX’s existing share functionality with its patent-pending technology to identify social influencers and track multi-generational sharing of paid, owned and earned media as well as other metrics to help FOX evaluate content creation efforts and better monetize advertising. Through earned media measurement and tracking, FOX was able to show that viewers are actively sharing content, and that these shares generated value beyond that which traditional online metrics report. Through trueAnthem’s technology, FOX learned that the content engagement rate was significantly higher (by 15%) amongst its new earned audience and that on average a share resulted in 15X new video impressions. As a result, the social distribution of content and advocacy generated amongst all of FOXs viewers not only drove earned media impressions, but aided in the acquisition of valuable new viewers.

“I believe the whole industry should be rethinking the marketing and advertising models as these channels evolve and our knowledge of how people think and feel grows,” said Mike Gadd, NGMR Board of Advisors and President of Gadd Research, Canada. “Companies are starting to sit up and recognize the need to partner with market research firms to help define the most relevant KPIs. Innovators like trueAnthem and companies like FOX are helping us set the best standards for the rest of the industry.”
