Additional Magid Media Labs Survey Proves Advertisers Experience Increased Brand Lift and Intent to Purchase
CBS Interactive's leadership position among its network peers mirrors the success at the CBS Television Network, which has opened the 2008/09 broadcast season as the number one network in total viewers and the key adult 18-49 and 25-54 demographics.
Additionally, in an ongoing customer survey commissioned by CBS and conducted by Magid Media Labs, 83% of more than 71,000 people polled across the CBS Audience Network said they were very satisfied with their online experience on the CBS Audience Network. In addition, the Magid Study also shows that CBS reaches a younger demographic online than on air, with an average age of 36 vs. 53 years old. The study also measured key advertiser metrics which found a typical advertisement on the CBS Audience Network receives a 33% brand lift and viewers indicate a 26% lift in intent to purchase.
"Our recent success in key months validates our strategy of being early to adopt an open, multi partner syndication model," said
