Targeted MNI media survey reveals importance of marketers
STAMFORD, Connecticut, October 7, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – MNI Targeted Media (INM), a targeted media planning and buying company and a division of Meredith Corporation, today announced the results of a survey of marketers regarding the sources they rely on for business purposes. The survey found that a majority preferred social media over traditional media and prominent people with established digital presence.
MNI’s goal with this survey was to learn which resources are influential and trustworthy among their clients and to leverage that information. This will help MNI to maximize the effectiveness of their campaigns while having a better understanding of their ideal target audience – which media is engaging and influencing them. The main findings include –
- Social networks for commercial purposes: – 50% (220 respondents out of 401) – rely first on Facebook, then on Instagram and YouTube (26%) in third position.
- Traditional media fare better against individuals: Adweek (11%), eMarketer (10%) and AdAge (8%) (120 total out of 401 respondents) were more likely to be viewed than social media or individual influencers when asked about their engagement with all sources together.
- Globally: Comparing all sources, Facebook (55%), YouTube (26%) and Twitter (25%) immediately followed LinkedIn (75%). The clubhouse has only accumulated 5% despite much attention at the start of the pandemic.
“Understanding what the leading marketers among MNI clients are using is very important to us and this information elevates campaigns while improving communication to speak more directly about the challenges our clients face and the solutions we offer,” said Klarn DePalma, executive vice president of MNI Targeted Media. “These results indicate a shift in the direction marketers are looking for information. We plan to revisit this issue in the not-so-distant future to ensure that we keep pace with changing behavior.
