In this data-driven era, accountability for success has never been more important. We wrote the very first evaluation software for PSA campaigns in 1981, about the same time the personal computer came on the scene. Since then, we have produced literally thousands of evaluation reports for TV, radio, print and out-of-home media.
There are a variety of reasons why you should evaluate every aspect of your PSA campaign. It:
- Demonstrates if your message is getting through to the right audiences
- Shows where you are and are not getting exposure
- Provides basis for making corrections
- Helps to solidify media relations when you sending letters of appreciation to PSA users
- Provides Return On Investment data to justify your PSA budget
- Helps you keep your job

How Do We Evaluate?
We get raw data from a variety of sources including the A.C. Nielsen Company, Cision’s, outdoor companies, affidavits, telephone and direct mail surveys. For a more detailed explanation of our evaluation methodology, go to a Powerpoint presentation on the subject at: link
How Do We Present Data?
We create a password protected reporting portal for each of our clients where they can access their evaluation reports. They can select either current or archived reports; they can select by media title; or select by media type. The data is refreshed Thursday of every week.
What Do We Report?
Executive Summary Report
On the first of each month we send an Executive Summary report for each client campaign via email. The summary includes most of the key metrics to demonstrate campaign progress.
We provide more detailed reports for broadcast TV because it is the dominant medium, generating typically 75-80% of all exposure. These include usage by daypart, by DMA, by target audience and graphics to highlight key trends. All reports can be exported to Excel for customized formatting and analysis. For other media, we provide less detail, but enough to determine the effectiveness of your campaign.
