PlaceIQ and IRI Team Up to Analyze Lift Measurement of Elusive Out-Of-Home Sponsorship Marketing, Linking Visitation Back to Offline Sales

PlaceIQ, the company building a new model of consumer behavior with location data and insights, and IRI®, the global leader in innovative solutions and services for consumer, retail and media companies, today announced they are collaborating to measure the value of location-based marketing efforts, linking offline sales back to out-of-home sponsorships, so marketers can finally understand the true effect of these difficult-to-measure campaigns.

A leading consumer products company turned to PlaceIQ and IRI to find out if its sports stadium sponsorship drives sales among stadium visitors for its flagship brand and entire product portfolio at retailers. The lift in product purchases by visitors to the sponsored stadium was twice that of a control group. For an entire sports season, the brand attributed more than $3 million in off-premise sales to visitors of its sponsored stadiums.

“Relevance Is Everything” is a new joint PlaceIQ and IRI white paper that details the results of this study and offers best practices for layering purchase and location data. This valuable case study will be featured onstage at the 2018 IRI Growth Summit, a leading industry gathering of CPG, retail and technology brands taking place April 16-18 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The case study explains how PlaceIQ and IRI measured the return for sponsorship on the brand’s sales and also provided insight into the affinities of its audience (stadium visitors), including which dining establishments, airports, hotels and retailers they frequent. Other key insights include the average distance travelled by sports fans to the stadiums and the effect of fans’ attendance at multiple sporting events over the season on off-premise purchases.

PlaceIQ and IRI data set integrations enable the ability to assess the path to purchase, serve ads at the right time and close the loop to in-store sales. These insights inform marketing decisions, from media channel investments, messaging and creative development to partnerships with new retailers and field marketing activations.

“Layering IRI’s purchase data and PlaceIQ’s advanced location data provides a holistic view of customers, from initial awareness to in-store purchases,” said Duncan McCall, chief executive officer and co-founder of PlaceIQ. “While it is a key part of building brand awareness among sports audiences, quantifying the value of stadium sponsorships is complex. These are substantial marketing investments that require a true understanding of sports audiences as a starting point to justify spending. We’ve worked with large brands for years to help them understand audiences, such as stadium visitors, their affinities outside the sports realm, and the effect marketing has on driving real-world visitation — and the solutions we offer are made even stronger today through this partnership.”

“Our joint work is focused on giving brands peace of mind that their marketing dollars are being used effectively,” said Jennifer Pelino, senior vice president, IRI Media Center of Excellence. “The ability to measure uplift in purchases from the unique audience for an event such as a stadium visitation provides much needed visibility into the return on investment. This, in turn, provides valuable insight into how different products within a brand’s portfolio are benefitting from sponsorship. These critical insights can be used by brands to optimize marketing decisions across the board.”

Beyond targeting, purchase and location data can be integrated for use cases such as:

  • Path to Purchase Assessment: Understand travel routes for consumer audiences before they purchase products in store
  • Events and Sponsorships: Quantify the impact of event sponsorship on future in-store sales
  • Store or Pop-Up Placement: Place stores or pop-up shops in locations that are most convenient to your target shoppers
  • Household Profiling: Understand how your consumers engage across the retail landscape and outside of your industry

The collaboration between PlaceIQ and IRI empowers brand and agency clients by providing a more holistic view of customer journeys. PlaceIQ’s location-based insights consist of 190 million unique, anonymous device signals across the United States, and IRI’s purchase data is representative of more than 100 million households and 80 percent of the U.S. market.
