Does a campaign need to be a certain length of time?

We have provided our service for campaigns as short as 10 days and for as long as 12 weeks. The average length of a campaign where Ansa has been included is 4.8 weeks. In general, we see relatively similar campaign performance (i.e. lift) for campaigns running 2-7 weeks.

Are there campaign budget minimums?

No. That said, we recommend:

  • Campaigns that use Ansa to target between 20% and 40% of your top-selling retailer stores. This range of stores typically allows you to maximize the % of sales you activated, while maintaining a high campaign spending efficiency (i.e. the % of sales your campaign activates / % of stores your campaign targets)
  • Campaigns that deliver 5,000 to 6,000 impressions per store per week, when those campaigns are targeted to larger format stores (like Mass Merchants and Clubs)
  • Campaigns that deliver lower ranges of impressions per store per week, when those campaigns are targeted to smaller format stores.

If you want a specific recommendation, or proposal for your next campaign, simply contact one of our ad partners and ask for a proposal with “Ansa inside”.

How different is Ansa from Nielsen, Datalogix or other campaign measurement services?

Our service is automatically integrated into all of your media campaigns at an incredibly reasonable price. We are designed for scale and our mission is to help marketers, agencies and ad networks continually learn and improve before, during and after every campaign. Ansa is not a periodic, or costly study that is received 6-8 weeks after a campaign has ended. With Ansa you will receive the most cost effective solution using the freshest, fastest and most granular analytics for maximizing performance at America’s largest retailers.
