Through thought leadership, innovative research and predictive tools, such as wargaming, Aimpoint Research can project trends and market shifts far ahead of traditional research firms.
“At our core, we believe leaders need superior intelligence and complete visibility of the current situation in order to make the most informed decisions and maintain a competitive advantage,” Sciotto said. “Our market research and intelligence capabilities, coupled with Farm Journal’s extensive behavioral data and marketing platforms, allow us to provide an unprecedented spectrum of insights to our clients.”
“We’ve worked seamlessly with Aimpoint Research on several cutting-edge research projects over the past year,” said Andy Weber, CEO of Farm Journal. “Aimpoint Research is best-in-class, and this formalizes an existing strategic relationship and completes our Data-Driven Performance Marketing offering. Aimpoint Research can answer the tough questions that set the strategy. Farm Journal has the audience and engagement to activate. Together we can move the market.”
Farm Journal is the industry leader in multi-brand platforms that engage audiences, boasting the largest first-party data available to ag-marketers. This alliance also comes as Farm Journal nears completion of a multimillion-dollar investment in its data platform, Farm Reach Vision, which will be unveiled to the market in 2020, paired with Aimpoint Research services.
“This alliance comes at a time when our industry is facing so many big questions. We look forward to working with Farm Journal to help answer those questions for the industry, and for our clients. Together, we can share intelligence with a much larger audience – both through media and client relationships,” Sciotto added.
