ATLANTA, GA, July 17, 2018 – Today, predictive analytics and consumer marketing data innovator, AnalyticsIQ, and PeerLogix (OTCQB:LOGX), the established standard for tracking non-subscription based Over-the-Top (“OTT”) engagement data, announce today the launch of new SHARK WEEK digital audiences. Check out our infographic below!
Premiering Sunday, July 22, Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK event celebrates its 30th anniversary. And with many brands, including Swedish Fish candy by Mondelez International, Build-a-Bear, Walmart and vineyard vines, getting in on one of television’s biggest events, the new audiences created by AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix help advertisers reach these valuable SHARK WEEK fans beyond traditional linear TV advertising.
“At PeerLogix, we are focused on capturing and making sense of consumer streaming behavior – from movies to music – and even exciting television events like SHARK WEEK,” states Ray Colwell, Chief Executive Officer of PeerLogix. “By identifying and enriching what we know about these streaming audiences, together PeerLogix and AnalyticsIQ offer brands a unique opportunity to get in on the excitement and marketing opportunity a cultural phenomenon like SHARK WEEK delivers.”
Linear TV advertising during Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK event is an extremely powerful marketing tactic. This partnership’s new addressable audiences, however, make it possible for brands of all sizes and budgets to reach these viewers across digital and OTT channels, especially when they aren’t tuned into the live cable event. And for those brands already investing big in SHARK WEEK, these audiences also provide them the opportunity to extend their messaging across channels for a complete 360o consumer experience.
“By combining our powerful data, we have the opportunity to help advertisers not only reach, but also understand who those SHARK WEEK streamers are behind the screen,” stated Anna Brantley, Chief Revenue Officer of AnalyticsIQ. “We just launched a new infographic that tells a fantastic story about the types of audiences who are streaming SHARK WEEK content over-the-top – when and where works best for them. For example, our data highlights that over 78% of SHARK WEEK streamers are moderate to avid exercisers. That means an athletic apparel or fitness wearables company may find targeting these viewers to be incredibly valuable, even if they aren’t planning to reach them with a traditional TV ad during the shark-filled programming.”
The full infographic detailing the “jawsome” insights about these streaming audiences is available from AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix for download here.
Starting today, advertisers, agencies and even programmers can connect with AnalyticsIQ and PeerLogix to learn more about targeting the SHARK WEEK audiences, and how the companies can provide additional program specific audiences and insights.
