For years the Pureplays, especially Pandora, have made claims that they are bigger than radio stations in their market. The problem was Pandora was comparing their internal data manipulated to look like Nielsen, to the Nielsen data broadcasters use every day.

Quintile Analysis sounds like a phrase that you might hear on “The Big Bang Theory” or in some scientific paper. However, Quintile Analysis is a great way to promote the value of radio and highlight the value of heavy radio listeners.
The concept is simple; rank all radio listeners on the amount of time they spend with radio. The top 20%, or one-fifth (a quintile) are the heaviest radio listeners. While radio reaches just about everyone (90%+ weekly reach), these heavy listeners, known as quintile 1, are the ones who are most impacted by ad messages. You can build an effective frequency so that they react to the advertising message.
