Publicis Media has partnered with ITV and InfoSum to launch the first UK campaign using Epsilon’s Core ID solution, which will allow brands to better target their desired audience within ITVX.
Leveraging Publicis Media’s PMX Lift, which launched in the UK in 2022, this new offering combines the scale and expertise of Publicis Media, with the data and technology of Epsilon (Publicis Groupe’s audience identity solution) to help clients navigate the increasingly complex AV landscape with ease. PMX Lift can deliver solutions to meet client challenges, like linear inflation, incremental reach, and access to more valuable audiences.
Launching with a campaign for Birds Eye, PMX Lift activates the data capabilities of Epsilon’s Core ID, to enable brands to deliver a unified approach to targeting, more defined audiences and less wastage.
In a UK first, via Planet V, Publicis Media clients can now activate the Epsilon identity solution, using *deterministic data at scale for campaigns running on ITVX. Epsilon’s individual data is matched with ITVX’s logged-in user data using InfoSum, providing a bespoke set of audiences for Publicis Media to target in Planet V.
Rachel Hall, head of PMX Lift, said: “This industry-first partnership with ITV will mean Publicis Media clients can use the data capabilities of Epsilon’s Core ID matched with ITVX’s logged-in users, to enable brands to deliver a consistent ID solution at scale. It allows us to better target beyond broad demographics and reduces wastage across AV campaigns. Epsilon audiences will now be available in Planet V for our agency teams to access and activate and we have campaigns running across Q2 / 3 for those clients keen to expand their use of Core ID audiences into ITVX.”
Michael Curtis, trading controller, ITV, said: “This partnership is a great example of the kind of innovative and progressive developments that we’re bringing to how we are iterating Planet V. By unlocking even more insights from data we’re creating unique audience segmentation for Publicis Media and we look forward to seeing the positive results for clients coming on-board to use this solution.”
Colin Buckingham, head of Media at Birds Eye, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with ITV and Publicis Media to carry out this industry first test. As our AV and media mix evolves, we want to continue to be working on ways that help future proof our advertising performance by finding new ways to reach our key audiences at scale.” LBB Online
