AAM and MPA Partner to Integrate the MPA Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report into AAM Brand View
The Alliance for Audited Media and MPA—The Association of Magazine Media have partnered to integrate the MPA Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report directly into AAM Brand View. The report data, which is featured on a new Brand View tab called MPA MM360°, is ready for activation in the profiles of all AAM clients who also participate in the MPA MM360° report. “Since MPA launched the Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report nearly five years ago, it has become the industry standard for measuring the total consumer audience, across formats and platforms,” said Linda Thomas Brooks, president and CEO of MPA—The Association of Magazine Media. “Magazine media is held accountable to the most stringent measurement from accredited, third-party sources which show it delivers better viewability, a more immersive user experience, a safer brand environment, and the highest return on advertising spend than any other medium. We are thrilled to make our data available alongside AAM’s metrics.”
