Measuring effectiveness and ROI of branded content to be debated at BE Festival

BE FESTA session at next week’s Festival of Branded Content & Entertainment is to set out different approaches for measuring the effectiveness and return on investment for branded content projects. The panel includes Michael Byers, managing director of measurement agency Showbrands, Ayal Steiner, general manager of Outbrain Australia and New Zealand and Tony Chow, an international media consultant based in Singapore.

Byers’ company claims to be Australasia’s only branded entertainment measurement company, and has recently announced a partnership with leading US branded content research company, iTVX Rentrak. Byers is to share some of the company’s vision for the future of branded content measurement, based on new practices from the US market as well as insights derived from the company’s research from shows such as Masterchef in Australia.
