[ Media ]
The KN Media team guides providers, agencies and digital publishers to optimal audience value, advertising effectiveness, and delivery efficiency. We excel at delivering the action in the facts, drawing on a unique blend of expertise in measuring digital and traditional media alike. We provide the insights clients need to
- assess the size of an audience across multiple properties and platforms
- measure the effectiveness of advertising according to a variety of metrics
- understand consumer reaction to new media options to inform strategy and investments, and
- provide innovative, custom research to address strategic issues facing media stakeholders
Media audience measurement and planning
Marketers and agencies rely on our syndicated and custom single-source measurements of total media use, simultaneous use of multiple media, and true duplication of reach – without "fusion" models.
With MultiMedia Mentor®, you can allocate media dollars more efficiently by using a people-centric lens of how media time is spent, coupled with the ability to filter by demos and brand targets. All surveys are conducted on the representative KnowledgePanel®. You can learn:
- Time spent at the media level and within a medium
- Time spent across a customized set of branded media properties across media
Total Touch helps primary rights holders for big-ticket events demonstrate ROI to their sponsors. We measure total exposure to a major event and its primary sponsors across all media – a capability tapped by NBCU in measuring audiences to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, and by ESPN for its 2010 FIFA World Cup coverage across dozens of properties.
KN has also conducted hundreds of custom single-media studies, defining consumer use of everything from the Internet to newspapers.
Media & advertising effectiveness
Clients from both sides of the ad sales table come to KN to measure the value of their media and advertising. For both sides, we can provide accurate measures of campaign effectiveness that can be used to validate effectiveness of a current buy and inform negotiations for future buys.
In a more general sense, we help advertisers, agencies, and media companies understand the value of different platforms and ad models – as in our work on Vivaki’s The Pool. And KN serves sponsors of sporting and other events by defining the impact of these investments on consumer attitudes and behavior.
Our KN Dimestore platform allows you to place simple surveys in the same online footprint as a display or streaming video ad. With this unique technology and our "real-time" reporting, you can optimize online ad campaigns while they are still in flight – and get more for your online ad dollars.
Media technology insights
Our syndicated The Home Technology Monitor™ and How People Use® reports give media companies and marketers insights into technology penetration and usage trends, along with the public's attitudes toward advertising within these technologies. We also excel at designing custom studies of technology ownership and usage for new devices and interfaces.

Meeting the challenge of media company ad sales, KN's custom A&U capabilities can highlight the value of a media audience to help meet advertiser needs, among them:
- Showing the value of a youth audience in the face of a recession
- Profiling "moms" and their importance in family purchase decisions
- Demonstrating the value of the Latino audience to mainstream advertisers
We perform sophisticated customer-based brand equity measurement, segmentations, and modeling for established and new media brands, identifying the positioning that consumers are most likely to embrace.
Knowledge Networks also provides custom research to inform content development, programming, and scheduling decisions – each of which can have a major impact on ratings and ad revenues. KN brings expertise to research on talent evaluation (e.g. news anchors), content development, impact of scheduling changes, and promotion testing.
Knowledge Networks rigor and expertise
