Memberships and cooperations

Like every industry, the media industry thrives on mutual exchange, which we cultivate in particular through numerous cooperations and memberships. In cooperation with some partners we are constantly working on the development of innovative, exclusive analysis products such as FirstSignals®. Our memberships in important industry associations also provide important impulses, synergy effects and joint projects.

Handelsblatt Media Group

In cooperation with the Handelsblatt Media Group, we have developed the innovative analysis tool FirstSignals®, which identifies emerging, socially relevant trends and topics at an early stage. While the Handelsblatt Media Group already uses the tool to analyze its own themes, other companies also use it to draw conclusions for their marketing and communication strategies, such as content marketing, theme placement and product orientation.


In cooperation with prmagazin, we carry out an analysis of a current and socially relevant topic every month. Past analyses dealt with the connection between artificial intelligence and digitization, the media image of the DAX30 supervisory boards and the social media content of global mobile phone giants. Further concrete examples can be found in our blog.
