YuMe, Inc. (NYSE:YUME), a leading provider of digital video brand advertising solutions, in collaboration with Nielsen Catalina Solutions, will now offer CPG advertisers a way to leverage consumer purchase information within YuMe’s multi-screen video platform – allowing them to reach TV-like audiences, with the precision of digital. Nielsen Catalina Solutions (NCS), a leader in data-driven marketing, integrates actual retail sales with media exposure in a single-source dataset, enabling CPG marketers and agencies to optimize advertising performance to maximize their return on ad spend.

“For consumers, the ‘new normal’ is consuming content across screens, and our technology continues to stay one step ahead,” says Jayant Kadambi, CEO and Co-Founder, YuMe. “Now, our alliance with NCS positions us to help clients reach actual buyers across screens.”
Traditionally, CPG advertisers have had difficulty leveraging their robust point-of-sale and customer data to improve their TV branding campaign metrics. CPG brands can leverage 70 million households of offline shopper card data at the Universal Product Code level to identify and reach high potential consumers across YuMe’s multi-screen network of video properties.
“We’re constantly testing new targeting approaches to best reach our most important consumers,” says Heather Dumford, Global Marketing Director, Media at ConAgra Foods, Inc. “Bringing together the richness of video and the relevance of in-store purchase behavior is an exciting approach to drive our business.”
By taking advantage of YuMe’s proprietary Audience-Aware software development kit (SDK) integrated in video publisher ad inventory, CPG brands can utilize NCS purchase behavior data to reach entire households that are frequent, occasional, lapsed, or non-buyers of certain products. YuMe’s Audience-Aware SDK can detect when devices are used by members of the same household, so CPG brands can gain additional reach or increase the frequency of exposure with the same user on a different device.
“The best way to influence future purchases and drive the greatest return on ad spend is by relying on past-purchase history data,” said Mike Nazzaro, CEO, Nielsen Catalina Solutions. “As brand advertisers continue to explore digital video, it becomes more important than ever to be able to reach the right audience and measure the impact of this medium. It’s exciting to join forces with one of the leading digital video companies to make that happen in a meaningful, powerful way for CPG brands.”
