After two years of refining its technology, building its team and
delivering insights for early customers, Measured
has officially exited stealth to launch its cross-channel incrementality
measurement and decisioning platform.

“The promise of marketing measurement beyond last-click has failed to
deliver for marketers. Multi-touch attribution has been plagued by
severe data reconciliation issues, walled garden blind spots, the
collapse of third-party tracking, challenges of identity and GDPR, and
painful on-boarding,” said Trevor Testwuide, co-founder and CEO at
Measured. “Media mix modeling is not granular enough for tactical
decision-making and too expensive for mid-market brands. Cross-channel
marketing measurement has failed marketers.”

Measured has developed a new approach anchored on innovative
experimental design to inform cross-channel media investment decisions.

Fresh Approach

Measured solves for the difficult challenges of operationalizing
steady-state test-and-control experimentation at scale across channels.

“We went back to the drawing board to innovate cross-channel measurement
for the realities of today’s marketers,” said Madan Bharadwaj,
co-founder and CTO at Measured. “We are excited to bring to market a new
transparent, practical and scalable approach to marketing measurement.”

Measured empowers its customers to focus on the high-value media mix
decisions that drive customer acquisition based on incremental metrics.
The Measured platform handles the complex heavy lifting of cross-channel
data management and continuous data quality validation to inform
accurate and trusted measurement.

“We take the pain out of sophisticated cross-channel media
incrementality testing,” Testwuide said.

The world’s most successful brands, such as Amazon, Google and Facebook,
have adopted a company-wide experimentation approach for testing ideas
and making decisions. Similarly, Measured conducts media-buying
experiments by segmenting the advertiser’s unique prospecting,
remarketing and house file audiences into test and control groups.

“Our experimentation technology that executes holdouts for prospecting
audiences affordably is truly a breakthrough,” Bharadwaj said. “The
results of each experiment empower marketers to make investment
decisions informed by actual audience-level incremental performance

Early Success

Measured has already contributed to the success of multiple
high-growth brands
by delivering ongoing cross-channel media
investment insights to companies like FabFitFun, Johnny Was, Hint, AB
InBev, J. Jill, AARP and Soft Surroundings.

Johnny Was, a fast growing high-fashion retailer and early customer, has
more than doubled its direct-to-consumer business within the first two
years of working with Measured.

“Measured is a critical partner enabling us to tune in to media’s
contribution to our growth,” said Rob Trauber, CEO of Johnny Was. “We
now have a laser focus on the incremental contribution of paid media,
providing us the data to make smarter investment decisions.”

“We are seeing customers use our product to right-size retargeting
budgets, scale customer acquisition on Facebook and Catalog, and really
build out a practice around cross-channel investment decisioning,”
Testwuide said.

Proven Leaders

Measured’s leadership has a proven track record in cross-channel
marketing measurement and attribution. Testwuide was previously
co-founder and CEO of Conversion Logic, a leader in multi-touch
attribution. Prior to that, he was an early leader at Visual IQ
(acquired by Nielson in 2017).

Bharadwaj, also a Visual IQ alum, is a leading expert in advanced
marketing measurement systems with a decade of experience applying big
data and machine learning technologies.

COO Nick Stoltz was most recently a senior vice president at
MarketShare, a Neustar Solution, and has spent the last 10 years working
with brands across multiple industries to build analytics programs that
drive incremental revenue and profit.
