Leap® Media Investments uses patented technology to develop audiences that can be used for more strategic based targeting. Marketers and Advertisers can plan, buy and distribute highly relevant advertising messages to individuals based on their Emotional Attachment to products. The LEAP® tech Platform – Leveraging Emotional Attachment for Profit – allows marketers to select Brand Enthusiasts, Brand Conquests or Brand Expansion Audiences to target with relevant advertising.

Marketers can both target individuals through our online, social and mobile through DMP/DSP relationships and target highly effective campaigns for Linear TV or Advanced programmatic TV offerings. LMI also creates and scales audiences based on their attachment to Media Networks, Sports/Sports Events (e.g March Madness), Entertainment Events (e.g., The Academy Awards) and likely viewers of specific TV shows and theatrical releases.
