What is Matchmaker?

FMCG advertisers can now combine the scale and quality of the UK’s largest broadcaster with precise shopper audiences from the UK’s largest retailer, Tesco and largest Health & Beauty retailer, Boots.

Each partnership provides a unique opportunity to reach category shoppers at scale on ITVX and measure using real sales data.

How does it work?

Leveraging Tesco Clubcard or Boots Advantage Card insights, the most relevant shopper audiences are selected based on a brand’s objectives and measurement KPIs.
Using Infosum, shopper audiences are then matched by email with ITVX registered viewers. This matched audience is then sent to Planet V, enabling media buyers to set up ITVX campaigns quickly and simply.

Post-campaign, precise brand level sales uplift is measured among those who’ve seen an ad vs a similarly profiled non-exposed control group. The methodology is fully deterministic, again using Infosum to match store card attributed brand-level sales directly to the ITVX viewers who saw your ad.
