Ipsos Launches New Campaign for Time-Pressed Marketers

Ipsos Minute Helps Stay On Top of Trends and Ideas

Monday, March 27, 2006

New York, NY – Global market research firm Ipsos today announced the launch of a new campaign to help time-pressed market researchers and marketers learn more about trends and developments in the fields of Technology & Communications, Health, Financial Services, and Consumer Products.

Ipsos Minute features one-minute streaming videos and two-page Q & A sessions with practice leaders and subject matter experts from Ipsos member companies in North America.

"The idea behind the Ipsos Minute is simple: We wanted to complement our extensive thought leadership library of White Papers, case studies and presentations with something pithy about market trends impacting various industries," said Julie Busch, VP of marketing for Ipsos Insight and Ipsos Loyalty in North America. "Ipsos Minute delivers useful information in bite- sized chunks. It's ideal for today's podcast nation."

The first Ipsos Minute is titled "New Technologies: The Move Toward Radical Personalization" and deals with the increasing control people want to have over their content.

Writes Cruikshank, Senior Vice President & Managing Director of the company's Technology & Communications practice: "Not only are individuals wanting to personalize their content – both in access, quantity, medium and actual information – they also want access to it anytime and from anyplace. While in the U.S. wireless access is growing and data activities on mobile devices are starting to grow, we are still somewhat tethered by wires and cables. Because people will move toward wanting their content anywhere, marketers will have more opportunities to reach consumers closer to the point of acquiring a product or service."

The Ipsos Minute can be viewed at: www.ipsosinsight.com/IpsosMinute/default.aspx

The Ipsos Knowledge Library, also free, is located at: www.ipsosinsight.com/knowledgecenter/
