Whip Media, leading enterprise software platform and data provider to the world’s largest entertainment organizations,and, entertainment company Free Turn join forces to deliver Hollywood studio predictive insights to brand-funded entertainment.
Whip Media’s proprietary global data and worldwide audience panel of 16+ million viewers will allow brands to uncover micro-trends before they become mainstream, fine tune content during production, engage more deeply with audiences, and, micro-measure with confidence. Predictive analytics currently are accessed purely byHollywood studios and broadcasters including Warner Bros, NBC Universal, Paramount, BBC and Disney.
This newly announced partnership promises to transform how brands create, develop, test and produce TV and film content through real time global audience data, consumption habits and distribution intelligence.
“It’s clear that brand-funded entertainment has immense power to engage audiences and grow business” said Free Turn’s Co-Founder and Managing Director Gemma Batterby. “But, how can we make the development process smarter? Until now, advertisers have been forced to create entertainment with little insight into what audiences consume and crave. There has been no way to test ideas with audiences before investing significant amounts of marketing capital,”
As viewers worldwide increasingly watch more TV shows and movies across multiple streaming platforms, brands will be able to anticipate audience and cultural trends to produce world-class entertainment to grab audience attention, contribute to culture and deliver competitive edge.
Whip Media’s real-time viewing and engagement data, covering more than 4+ million television episodes and movies across 80 countries and 1,200+ platforms, will provide unique advantages to marketers looking to connect their branded content to more consumers and drive growth opportunities.
Whip Media has been accurately predicting the global audience and entertainment trends during the Covid-19 pandemic, including the success of Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit and Hulu’s Love, Victor. Last year, Free Turn’s Nick Hamm directed White Lines which reached Netflix’s #1 spot in over 20 countries.
