Platform provides media and entertainment marketers with the most complete view of fans' shared affinities across any show, movie, music, artist or celebrity
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Affinity Answers, the leader in social-powered audience insights and activation, announced it has rebranded its all-in-one, tune-in marketing solution, AudiencePlanner, to FanFinder360° in recognition of its growing market leadership in media and entertainment.
FanFinder360° provides an unprecedented view into the shared, positive affinities between the true fans of shows, movies, or music artists, and everything else they love across the world of social media. The FanFinder360° advantage is in the potent combination of its social-powered recommender engine and brand-level data. All insights are real-time and relevant with affinities refreshed based on the last 13 weeks of social engagements.
The newly updated and branded FanFinder360° platform identifies the most passionate fans across TV, movies, and music through billions of social engagements and supplies actionable insights about fan interests and behaviors — what they are watching, where they are browsing, favorite YouTube channels, favorite sports teams, apps, celebrities and more — so marketers know where to find and activate them.
"It's harder than ever for media and entertainment marketers to find and target new fans in today's landscape of massively fragmented audiences and channels," said Josh Raper, Vice President of Marketing at Affinity Answers. "What if however, you could instantly uncover that there's a shared affinity for actress Kaley Cuoco across readers of both Playboy and Shape Magazines, and viewers of both Two Chicks and a Hammer and Star Trek: Discovery? That's the power of billions of social engagements from the most passionate fans. FanFinder360° delivers the most reliable view of behavior and intent to turn those engagements into actionable insights for fan targeting and marketing campaigns."
