US – Television audience data company Samba TV has agreed a strategic partnership with Snapchat creator Snap Inc on advertising measurement.


The agreement will see Samba TV provide outcome measurement to Snap advertisers in the entertainment industry, with media and entertainment brands on Snapchat able to measure conversion outcomes using Samba TV’s VTR tool.

Snapchat advertisers will also be able to use Samba TV data to influence advertising spending decision-making.

Ashwin Navin, co-founder and chief executive at Samba TV, said: “As a world-renowned social platform with a devoted audience, Snapchat is a powerful medium for promoting new entertainment options and brands in general.

“Our measurement reveals the best practices for how to leverage Snap for discoverability and brand engagement with a unique demographic accessible on the platform.
