{ANNOUNCEMENT} Nielsen’s Commspoint Influence Tool Now Available For Academia

We strongly believe that students need more access to industry tools.

Today, we have exciting news. We have teamed up with the Pointlogic Commspoint Influence tool, by Nielsen to help give students industry tools they need.

Reading about how to do something is not the same as having hands on experience. Pilots don’t fly without first practicing in simulators, doctors don’t do surgery without first practicing on cadavers, and media planning students should have access to the tools and training they will need before they enter the workforce.

Why Use the Commspoint Influence Tool, by Nielsen, for Your Media Planning Class?

Commspoint Influence is a strategic planning solution that helps brands and their agencies identify the optimal communication channel mix for their goods and services.

The Commspoint system uses extensive consumer and media expert surveys, as well as the latest data analytics techniques to isolate the best contact points for clients’ campaigns. Commspoint understands media capabilities, media usage probabilities, spot duplication patterns, reach and frequency, costs and more, which the software can translate into influence.

In other words, brands can see how communications are changing behavior, preference, and perceptions towards their product categories.

Here at Stukent, we believe in a perfect pedagogy that includes these three things:

  1. Academic text written by brilliant authors
  2. Video lectures by industry experts
  3. Hands-on learning through simulations, projects, and interactive assignments

Beth Donnelly EganWe suggest combining Commspoint Influence with the Media Planning Essentials textbook authored by Beth Egan from Syracuse. Beth is a long-time user of the tool and has organized textbook materials to go hand-in-hand with the tool.

When asked why she feels strongly about bundling both Commspoint Influence with Media Planning Essentials, Beth replied, “This the first ever digital-first communications planning textbook that teaches students how to think about planning from a multi-channel perspective through the use of the software tool actually used in the industry today.”
