ANA Cross-Media Measurement Initiative

Delivering a complete and transparent view of ad exposure across all media.

New market developments and a highly fragmented media landscape have challenged traditional measurement approaches and created significant knowledge gaps for marketers. One of the biggest challenges facing marketers is the inability to assess how many people their ad campaigns reached and how often across all media.

The ANA Cross-Media Measurement Initiative is focused on creating a transparent, privacy-compliant measurement solution using a first-party data-based approach. Led by marketers, this industry-wide initiative unites stakeholders spanning the entire advertising ecosystem, including digital platforms, media companies, the VAB, 4A's, and their corresponding members. Strategic partners also include the MRC, serving as a key advisor, and industry vendors, operating as executing parties. See the full list of project partners (PDF).
