  • The research helped Sky News understand and quantify its highly influential audiences
  • The data formed the basis for presentations during a major roadshow to clients and media agency stakeholders
  • It directly led to additional revenue from a governing body who wanted to reach Sky News’ influential audience – based on the findings of the research.

“Pureprofile’s research gave us permission to talk to our clients about Sky News C-Suite audience in a knowledgeable and powerful way, stimulating additional revenue from clients who could now better understand Sky News audience. Not only did it help us hone our sales approach with quantifiable data, our sales teams have great feedback and the research has been used in various situations, from internal presentations to external events.”
