Marketing Effectiveness Intelligence™

Measure advertising’s influence on online consumer behavior

Marketing Effectiveness Intelligence (MEI) quantifies consumers’ online behavior across multiple websites and gives marketers an overall view of their market share versus their competitors. MEI allows marketers to understand the impact of their marketing efforts and other market forces that affect the demand for their own products and services versus their rivals. MEI can also reveal a more accurate measure of market-wide demand and the potential for sales.
