Available at the presidential, senate, house and gubernatorial level, Proximic by Comscore is building on its commitment to providing marketers with precise and scalable ways to reach their intended audiences.

“As more political advertisers look for ways for greater reach with right audiences, digital advertising becomes a critically important component to media campaigns. The open internet provides opportunities for political advertisers to apply more data to better understand what messages resonate with audiences,” said Kevin Fisher, GM, Business Development, The Trade Desk. “In working with Proximic by Comscore, we’re presenting an innovative and privacy-centric offering to marketers across connected TV.”

“With the 2024 election season on the horizon and record-breaking spending anticipated, Proximic is excited to integrate our Political Ad Exposure segments into The Trade Desk to empower advertisers to reach political audiences in a privacy-centric manner,” said Rachel Gantz, Managing Director of Proximic by Comscore. “Media buyers will now have the ability to extend reach and drive incrementality over linear, to effectively compete in this hyper-competitive race.”

Primary use cases include:

  • Reach extension: Marketers can suppress viewers of a candidate’s linear TV ads to achieve digital and CTV incrementality
  • Amplify frequency: Marketers can reach viewers of a candidate’s linear TV ads to increase or reduce frequency across other channels
  • Increase share of voice: Marketers can target audiences who have been exposed to competitor candidates’ ads, to increase their own share of voice
