The big daddy’s of audience measurement have put India on the map and have announced their online venture in India. TAM, Television Audience Measurement, is also a Nielsen Tool, and is used extensively by the Television folks to get meaningful business insights and innovate to better engagement. However, barring a few top online publishers, I haven’t seen any instances of such research being utilised to its fullest. I say this, because a an internet marketer, I never get to hear the comScore/Nielsen data as a support for for any media presentation.

But things may change soon.

Before we get more optimistic, one other entity associated with audience measurement is a usually an impartial industry-wide central body. They are important from the view of the authority, auditing and impartial validation and hence the universal usage of Data. These are bodies such as ABC (Audit Bureau of Circulation) for print media, IAB (Interactive Advertising Bureau) for US, IBS (India Broadcasting Society for television) is equally important to initiate the approach. I’m sure IAMAI (Internet & Mobile Association of India) is taking a note of this as they have a job at their hand in educating a number of us on this subject.

Cheers!
