Based on more than 20 years' of tracking study experience, a database designed and developed since 2005, a Master Coding List of over 5000 pre-coded advertisers and a range of tailor-made reporting mechanisms, the DMA JOTS has provided the infrastructure for various Print & Online Media Tracking & Monitoring reports, at an extremely high level of detail and accuracy.


Reporting on the content of various advertisements appearing in a range of print and online media provides an understanding of overall market share of advertising within various sectors by medium. Analyzing the data further provides valuable insight into which print titles and websites enjoy what percentage of market share by:


  • Various Government & Private sectors, tailored to meet client reporting needs

  • Names of Advertisers, showing who the biggest advertisers are and which titles are being used

  • Rand Value of Print Media Advertising, reporting on market share in terms of Rand value, based on Advertising Format


Monthly and quarterly reports provide insights to advertising trends, helping leaders in media and related sectors make informed strategic decisions, based on advertising volumes.

Print and Online editorial content analysis can provide subscribers with an entire range of strategic insights, such as the percentage of editorial appearing in a particular range of titles dedicated to any particular company or government body.  Of that, the "level of mention" and "level of sentiment" can also be gauged, with reports designed to meet client requirements and a useful measure of perceptions related to CSI, Sustainability and more.
