How It Works

Our Sales Impact Study precisely matches test and control store sales over the life of the campaign

1 Set up test and control stores
We carefully select and match exposed and control stores based on audience, geography, and the purchase history and retailer preference of nearby consumers.
2 Monitor each group
Consumers around the exposed group of stores will receive ads across all of their devices, and those around the control group will not.
3 Measure incremental sales lift
Incremental sales lift is determined by calculating the percent difference in exposed store sales compared to control store sales over the life of the campaign.
4 Gain greater insight
In addition to lift analysis, our location and neighborhood intelligence gives you purchaser profiles, distances traveled, and other retailers frequented.
