DULLES and ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A leading center-right data organization, Deep Root Analytics (DRA), announced today a partnership with FourthWall Media™, the largest independent source of cable set top box viewing data. Deep Root is the first Republican analytics firm to leverage FourthWall's TV viewing data to micro-target political campaign television advertising. FourthWall Media, through its MassiveData division, maintains a panel of 4.7 million individuals in over 1.8 million homes.
"Television continues to be campaigns' dominant communications medium, but it has typically been the least data-driven," said Alex Lundry, Co-founder of DRA. "Campaign resources are a precious commodity, so it is important that political television buying decisions be better informed by data. We need to approach big media with big data. Big data allows us to target our most important voting segments with messages that not only inform and influence, but create passion. Integrating FourthWall's exclusive data with Deep Root's unique blended media database will help campaigns target their paid media in a far more effective way than they had previously. What FourthWall's exclusive second-by- second viewership data gives us is the ability to spend our advertising dollars more effectively and to target our message into individual homes for maximum political impact."
In the upcoming election cycle, Republican candidates and conservative causes will be more successful if they can better target critical voters with the right message," said Sara Fagen, Co-founder of DRA. "When we combine our unique voter segmentation with FourthWall's second-by-second viewing data, we can dynamically match a voter's interest in issues with their viewing habits to build persuasion models that allow us to more effectively and cost-efficiently make our case to the American people. This is a critical advantage the GOP needs going forward and we look forward to working with FourthWall to employ their unique data."
"Our MassiveData panel is an amazing resource," said Patrick Peters, FourthWall Media GM of Programming. "We are able to work with campaigns to identify the specific programming their target voters are watching. This makes the campaign more efficient in its marketing and more effective in its messaging. It worked in the 2012 Obama re-election campaign and it will work again for Deep Root Analytics. Our goal is to put our data in the most capable hands, so the best and brightest will find creative uses for it. We're very excited about working with DRA."
