Data dump: takeaways from the TNS Marketing Monitor study

TNS recently conducted a study into how Kiwi marketers are using social media, and the findings showed that marketers were increasingly relying on social media to reach their audiences. This should come as no surprise to anyone who has had to quickly scroll by an ad fed onto a Facebook newsfeed, but what's interesting is that marketers aren't only using social media services to distribute their ads. They are also using the services to glean better insights on what consumers want and what they are doing in their daily lives.   

"Social media and search data provide an instant, real-time view of what consumers are saying, thinking and doing and the increasing use of social media provides great opportunities for brands to leverage this data to further understand their customers," says Bindi Norwell, executive director for TNS New Zealand. "The really exciting area is fusing social media data with other sources of data to gain a deeper level of insights with greater focus.”

Here are some of the key takeaways from the TNS study:

Follow the money, part four: Where New Zealand's news media is finding pots of funding gold

Follow the money. It’s an axiom that journalists have believed in for years and a guiding light when it comes to holding the powerful to account. But that phrase is increasingly pertinent to those who run media businesses. As advertising money flows away from traditional channels towards large tech firms, the old business model of selling space around the news is creaking. And that has led to a range of experiments from publishers and broadcasters hoping to keep the lights on – and to keep shining those lights into dark places. Erin McKenzie dives into the local news media feed and finds plenty of experiments, but no simple answer to the funding conundrum.
