Nationally syndicated sources of media spending data provide limited and inconsistent coverage of local media. VMS' VoiceTrak Report was developed to help market-focused advertisers get a better view of local competitive conditions through an exhaustive survey of every significant media vehicle in every local market.
While syndicated monitoring may cover 9 media vehicles in a market like Atlanta, VoiceTrak surveys cover almost 100. In small and mid-sized markets the major syndicated sources monitor only television activity. VoiceTrak provides coverage of 6 local media types in all markets. VMS became a major provider of local media spending information with our acquisition of VoiceTrak in 2001.
