SMI Product Category Ad Spend Packages

The market’s most accurate and granular Product Category ad spend data is now available to access, either as a one-off data extract or by subscribing to SMI’s monthly or quarterly Category data sets.

Individual data extracts are provided directly to subscribers along with full graphical detail to illustrate the latest Category trends, while subscribers to the monthly and quarterly data can choose to access the insights through SMI’s Dataminer publishing tool. That option also ensures access to all Category ad
spend history.

Premium features are also availabe, including each Category’s ad spend/share across all media owners and Forward Demand insights. The latter shows the true level of future advertising demand for each category, giving marketers the ability to pace their marketing budgets to their Category trends.

Full details and examples of the base data package and premium inclusions are provided beneath the SMI Category Pricing Calculator. The Calculator provides a quick guide to SMI’s Category pricing, with the final data selection then able to be sent directly to SMI for confirmation.

SMI Premium Category Data Examples:

Category Ad Spend by Owner Spend/Shares:
Details each product category’s ad spend across all major owners, including all Digital media such as Google, Facebook and the Agency Trading Desks. Digital media owner data will also be shown by Digital sector so the Category’s spend on various services, such as ad serving or search, is also provided. The example below shows the changing Q1 Digital media shares of the Insurance Brand/Sponsorship category, but the same view is also available across all media ie including ad spend for TV and radio networks, outdoor businesses and companies in news media.

Category Forward Ad Demand:

SMI creates the forward ad demand data by collecting the confirmed ad spend already in the media agencies’ payment system. The value of this combined total is compared to the same data at the same point in time the previous year to show the overall level of increase/decrease in demand for each individual category and how that differs by major media.

Example: The SMI Forwards highlighted in May 2020 the huge growth in the Pet Food/Products Category’s future media investment through the COVID period, as shown below:
