Excitement as P+ Measurement Services Clocks Five

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Five years ago, an independent public relations measurement and evaluation agency named P+ Measurement Services, was birthed.

At inception, the company was the first in that sector in Nigeria and some observers thought the firm may not survive because it was thought that the traditional PR organisations will likely frustrate its growth.

But five years after, P+ Measurement is standing tall, breaking new grounds because of its huge impact in the country and its qualitative offerings that surpass clients’ expectation.

The leading agency with expertise in Media Monitoring, PR Measurement and Audit, CEO Media Performance and Advisory, has offered services to over 45 brands and 15 Public Relations agencies in its five years of operation in the country.

As the only AMEC Member in Nigeria, P+ Measurement has strong partnerships with the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) and Reelforge Media Monitoring; the biggest media monitoring agency in the East African region covering more than five countries.

Speaking on its business portfolio, the Chief Insights Officer, Mr Philip Odiakose, said every client media data has a story to tell and it depends on how strategic you are in flogging the data to yield meaningful results.

He avowed that P+ services with state-of-the-art technology and highly skilled media analysts has greatly enhanced clients’ businesses to immeasurable heights, exceeding their expectations, thus making P+ unique in the industry it operates.

“Our measurement and evaluation report is in-depth, robust and flexible to accommodate valid metrics that brands desire to see reflected in their reports, and it is also based on the AMEC Standard in accordance with the Barcelona Principle 3.0.

“We deploy the P+MCA (media content analysis) methodology for media evaluation and analysis based on qualitative and quantitative metrics in analysing media exposure,” Mr Odiakose affirmed.

On the agency’s portfolio, the Chief Operating Officer, Ms Olufunke Mohammed, points out that P+ understands the value of valid PR metrics to its clients’ media performance audit report.

Since inception, the agency has been able to provide media monitoring, measurement, evaluation and performance audit services for brands, agencies and government bodies that operate in various industries and organisations ranging from banking, telecom, insurance, airlines, tourism, government, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), pensions, Health Management Organisations (HMOs), tobacco and lifestyle.

Attesting to P+ capabilities and unique offerings, the Regional Executive Head, Marketing and Corporate Communication, Standard Bank Group, Ms Nkiru Olumide-Ojo, said they are strategic in their input, futuristic in their outlook, and that the agency is an amazing partner on managing upheavals in the media management value chain. “I would recommend them easily,” she said.

Also, the Principal Lead/Chief Executive Officer, BudgIT Foundation, Mr Gabriel Okeowo, put forward that P+ has been of great support to the Foundation, as it serves as a media crawler and auditor for its PR activities.

He further stated that P+ is relevant for impact tracking and more importantly for quickly identifying negative vibes around the work of BudgIT, thus giving the foundation the opportunity of responding swiftly to issues. He, therefore, recommends the agency to other organisations for optimum efficiency.

At 80, What Should RCCG People Gift Adeboye?

By Nneka Okumazie There is the natural assumption that the best gift is something to buy, which in some situations could be appropriate. But overall, the best gift is something that cannot be seen – as given or that cannot be bought. Sincerity is better than the best of gold. Trust, genuine trust, is better than all of silver. There is the desire to give something and be seen, but the consideration that money from a source of horror could have been used to get the gift makes it less meaningful. This year, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian
