The OMD I-Score was born out of a desire to create a system that uses A.I. and machine learning to find the most authentic matches between Influencer talent and brands.
It was conceived as a variation of the Q Score, a system that rates celebrities, brands or entertainment properties based on familiarity, popularity and likability. The I-Score is different in that it factors demographic, contextual, and psychographic analysis to determine the authenticity of the match between social media Influencers and brands. In addition, the system can detect paid vs. organic brand mentions, bot followers, and it also measures brand safety by way of MPAA-style ratings, similar to the way that movies receive their ratings.
Influencer marketing is becoming a key facilitator in reaching consumers and presenting a brand through a positive and solution-oriented lens.
At OMD, we recognize the benefits Influencers can provide and are committed to creating an educated and transparent identification, and evaluation approach for our clients, utilizing our exclusive OMD I-Score™.
