Arbitron PPM Analysis reports
If your market is beginning PPM service, you need to learn Arbitron's new terminology, new ratings time periods, what kinds of data are available, and most importantly how to collect the data that is most important to you then combine it into a report that answers your questions and can help you prepare for the future. This takes a lot of time, patience, and knack to concentrate on a lot of clerical work.
If you have been receiving PPM for any period of time, you already know what's available to analyze. But, most importantly, are you collecting the right data to make the best programming, marketing, sales decisions? Are you properly prepared for the future? PDs call us after months of working with PPM data because they have not one, two, but three stations to manage, and not enough time to prepare the month's report for management, let alone themselves. Every few months Arbitron introduces new types of data then the process starts all over again for the PDs to learn what's new, how to collect it, then incorporate it into the monthly report. Research Concepts is your data analysis "assistant."
