Amazing Lightning Deal from eMarketer


eMarketer has offered WiLS members an unprecedented deal! A single, flat price for as many WiLS members as we can gather. The bigger the group, the lower the price!

The Product: eMarketer aggregates a huge amount of data from audience measurement companies, industry associations, academic institutions, major online media platforms and other research firms. They then build statistical models, analyses, and reports on virtually every aspect of online/digital marketing. Some of the topics include: E/MCommerce, Internet of Things, Digital Ad Spend by Device Type, Attribution, Email Marketing, Social Media Stats and more! Data is easily accessible by channel, demographic, country, and much more. This great resource would be a real asset to academic libraries serving business, marketing, entrepreneurship and communications disciplines.

The Offer: The list price for a typical institutional license is $15,000. But, if WiLS can gather enough interest and close the deal before August 31st, we can provide 1-year access to as many of our member libraries as we like for a flat fee of $20,000.  We would divide that cost among member libraries according to FTE. That means, depending on the size of the group, WiLS member libraries could get access to this great resource for just a tiny fraction of the list price. This promotional price would be for the first year’s subscription only, but if we can show that this type of deal can work, it will be easier to make the case for a good deal in subsequent years.

The Process: So, if your institution has a real interest in this product, please fill out our interest survey. It’s just a quick survey to assess the initial interest in the deal. Filling out this survey does not commit your institution to purchasing. We’ll get commitments once we’ve assessed the real size of the group and calculated your price accordingly. Our target is to have a good sense of interest by August 1st, so please look over the product and fill in the survey by then.
