Electronic Arts Inc. has announced EA Legend, a dynamic platform developed to provide marketers with campaign and audience insights across mobile, social, online and console games reaching over 300 million people worldwide, according to EA internal data. The insights suite aggregates metrics, brand impact, social buzz, ad effectiveness, and ROI across all of EA’s ad products and platforms. EA Legend is powered by nPario, an expert in providing data products and services that enable companies to deliver better and more relevant experiences to their audiences and marketers. EA Legend will be presented to conference attendees for the first time ever at this year’s Advertising Week in New York City, NY on October 4, 2011 at 4pm EST.
“EA increased its worldwide audience reach by 30% this year across its mobile, social, online and console products. Combining that major jump in reach with the launch of EA Legend puts us in perfect position to compete directly for ad dollars that have traditionally gone to TV,” said Dave Madden, Senior Vice President of Global Media Solutions at Electronic Arts. “EA Legend gives us an edge by providing marketers with actionable insights across all of our platforms and a complete view into how their campaigns are driving engagement with consumers.”
EA Legend presents many benefits for advertisers, such as:
- Key cross-platform campaign performance indicators such as impressions, clicks, unduplicated reach, demographic profiles, social media buzz, and ROI metrics.
- Segmented audience insights based on demographic, psychographic, and social data.
- Ability to drill down into the factors that impact campaign effectiveness including audience engagement, audience segmentation and type of creative all measured over time.
“EA and nPario’s collaboration around EA Legend revolutionizes how advertisers can leverage their data,” said Bassel Ojjeh, CEO of nPario. “EA has some of the most premium and engaged audiences in the world, and nPario’s Data Management Platform allows EA to deliver audience and performance insights across multiple platforms at an infinite scale.”
EA Legend aggregates multiple internal and 3rd party data sources, providing marketers a single view into consumer’s response to their campaign. With this cross platform insights capability, EA Legend sets new standards for measuring the effectiveness of advertising in interactive entertainment. For example, marketers running ads on SCRABBLE on the iPhone™, ad integrations in The Sims Social™ on Facebook®, and sponsored content within Madden NFL Football on the console would be able to easily login and generate accurate unduplicated reach and campaign metrics across the three platforms. EA Legend empowers marketers giving them the opportunity to understand their EA ad campaigns with unparalleled detail and clarity, through a dynamic and user friendly tool.
