Frequently Asked Questions

How does the revenue model work?
  • Agencies use the data segments to target programmatic ad campaigns.
  • emPower data is available through our Demand-Side Platform Partners - Google's DoubleClick, TradeDesk, and MediaMath.
  • When purchasing inventory in these platforms, agencies add emPower data to their campaign.
  • Publishers receive payment within 60 days from the end of each quarter.
How is publisher revenue shared?

We spent the last couple of months successfully testing Effective Measure's data. It's quite apparent that having access to this data not only improves the targeting and return on investment, but most importantly enables us to spend a lot more on local inventory. This is a win-win for the agencies, advertiser and publishers. We encourage our partners to get involved in the next phase of emPower and see the added value to their businesses.

What can be bought programmatically, will be. This has been the operating mantra. Essentially data and programmatic methodology offers the targeting required to reach the qualified audiences. We have started testing emPower data with different segments, and are beginning to see success in relevancy with emphasis on local reach.
