‘The Vizeum Way’

We work to a rigorous proprietary planning process to integrate communications around the consumer decision making journey which we customise to meet our clients specific requirements.

CCS – the Consumer Connection System

We have developed the world’s most robust media study enabling us to unravel consumer decision-making journeys and identify exactly which channel to use and when to engage your consumers.   Because we built this on behalf of our clients, we have ensured 3 crucial things:

  1. It works seamlessly with all existing client-owned consumer segmentations. We simply fuse our data with yours.
  2. It is highly media actionable. Most clients find their segmentations define their target audience, but never help them detail a media plan or weigh up alternative communications choices.
  3. It is built for the modern day consumer landscape, covering 60+ different forms of consumer touchpoints. We regularly update these to ensure we capture all developing digital media.

Unique understanding and knowledge

We have developed insight into consumer motivations and needs and how these translate into purchasing decisions and media choices with Synovate Censydiam.
