At Nielsen, division Media Planning, we develop creative analytical solutions to support companies in the optimization of their marketing and communications budgets. Analytical and econometric approaches form the backbone of these solutions, answering questions like "What media mix works best to communicate my brand message?”, “What budget should I invest in media and marketing?".

Our solutions help these companies in making decisions around their marketing communication budgets.

What media mix contributes the most to the revenue?"
