OneFootball Taps NPAW’s Advertising Analytics To Optimize Its Ad Strategy and Experience

OneFootball, the world’s largest football media platform, has announced it has chosen video business intelligence leader NPAW as its advertising analytics provider to monitor and optimize its ad strategy and experience.

The football media platform is leveraging the advanced analytics capabilities of the NPAW Suite’s Ads module to track ad performance and consumption at the end-user level. In contrast with demand-side analytics solutions, which only offer limited ad insertion and impression insights, NPAW Ads provides full visibility into user behavior and perceived playback quality — a critical advantage when designing a superior ad experience centered around the viewer.

Equipped with a solid understanding of how its users consume ads and how these are reproduced across devices, regions, and service providers, OneFootball can fine-tune its ad strategy and delivery to maximize engagement and monetization. Its teams — from marketing and product to IT — have one source of truth regarding ads and can collaborate more effectively and make cohesive, data-based decisions.    

Ad frequency, placement, and length can be adjusted for effectiveness and tailored to each viewer segment’s tolerance to ads, maximizing impressions from high-affinity users while avoiding unnecessary pressure on ad-averse ones. Ad playback can be monitored in real time to quickly identify any quality-related issues and their root cause, mitigating errors according to their importance and before they impact a larger part of the user base.

NPAW’s vendor-agnostic ad insertion data also allow OneFootball to ensure all its available ad slots are being effectively monetized at all times. Furthermore, the NPAW Suite serves as an independent validation point with which to audit ad server performance and negotiate partner agreements based on demonstrable facts.   

“The true value of NPAW’s advertising analytics starts where that of demand-side solutions stop,” assured Patrick Fischer, CBO of OneFootball. “By having a clear, in-depth picture of what happens before, during, and after ad playback, we can optimize our ad experience to increase both ad revenue and user satisfaction.”

“We are thrilled to be working with such a big a name in the football media space as OneFootball,” said Till Sudworth, CMO of NPAW. “We look forward to helping the platform make the most of its ad inventory while continuing to deliver the first-class viewing experience it is known for.”
