Ebiquity is responding to the challenges of the digital world by focussing on data-driven systems and consultancy to maximise marketing effectiveness.
At the centre of this new direction is Billetts Marketing Investment Management, a new and unique service, which builds on the traditional strengths of the Billetts brand in media auditing and marketing sciences.
Founded on insights derived from the UK’s biggest media and marketing databases, Marketing Investment Management acts as an essential route to maximising effectiveness and efficiency throughout the communications cycle.
The programme incorporates a wide range of inter-linked services using Ebiquity’s unique proprietary techniques and tools.
At the same time, Ebiquity is launching a new generation of its reputation monitoring service Newslive, the most advanced offering of its kind in the market. It will deliver clients unrivalled desk-top access to news stories and analytics from press, TV, radio, internet, blogs, wires and web-based video.
The launch of Newslive represents a significant step for Ebiquity as it adds a state-of-the-art editorial monitoring service to complement its already leading market position in advertising monitoring through Billetts Media Monitoring.
