A large CPG brand has been investing in digital tactical media placement services through various online media trading exchanges as a large focus of their marketing campaigns. Brand’s buying decisions have been primarily based on Nielsen's Digital Ad Ratings (DAR) and standard media metrics such as cost per thousand impressions, cost per click and click through rate (CPM, CPC, CTR).

  2. Which metrics they ended up utilizing for overall buying efficiencies
  3. The outcome of focusing their KPIs across channels
