Singapore, 30 September 2021 – In its latest effort to deliver more comprehensive and value-added advertising solutions, Mediacorp will for the first time offer its clients brand uplift studies powered by Brand Metrics, one of the world’s leading providers of brand uplift analytics. With this initiative, advertisers with Mediacorp can look forward to gaining deeper insights into their digital marketing campaigns and the impact these have on their brand.
As the advertising market starts to bounce back from the challenges brought about by the pandemic, marketers are increasing their focus on brand building for the long haul and relying less on short term metrics. Studies by Brand Metrics have shown that digital advertising on premium platforms continues to be effective in helping businesses achieve overall brand uplift.
Advertisers can measure the impact of a digital campaign, covering key metrics such as awareness, consideration, preference and action intent. A single-question survey measures consumers’ attitudes towards a brand, from which crucial qualitative insights into the success of a client’s campaign can be derived. The technology can be used regardless of campaign size and cost, and allows results to be compared against those of other campaigns in the competitive Singapore environment and in other parts of the world.
“As advertisers increase their digital ad spend, they look beyond impressions and clicks to the more important values of brand lift and action intent to measure the real impact of a campaign on their brand. We are pleased to partner Brand Metrics in offering this simple, cost-effective and comparable solution for our clients to measure brand uplift across the consumer purchase path. This, in turn, enables them to adjust their messaging, investment or strategy accordingly for the best possible ways to grow their brands,” said Jennifer Chase, Vice President, Digital Sales, Solutions and Operations, Mediacorp.
Brand Metrics’ independent measurement solution was created in Sweden and has already been adopted by many of the world’s leading publishers globally, including The Guardian, The Sun, The Washington Post, Bloomberg and The Telegraph.

Mediacorp reaches 27.3 million monthly unique visitors with over 309 million monthly page views across its digital properties including CNA, CNA Lifestyle, CNA Luxury, TODAY, meWATCH, 8World, meLISTEN and other related sites. This latest initiative builds on the media network’s preceding efforts to offer the most comprehensive set of transmedia solutions available to marketers in Singapore, such as: the introduction of the blended CPV (cost-per-view) model in 2018; the restructuring of its advertising rates in 2019; and in February this year, the launch of advertising platform Mediacorp AdDirect.
