Persuasion Rating Point (PRP)


A persuasion rating point (PRP), or persuasive rating point, is a combination of the gross rating points (GRPs) placed behind an advertising execution and that execution’s persuasive power over a specific time period.

PRPs are used in media planning to increase marketing return by determining the optimal allocation of  GRPs for each advertisement based on their ability to deliver selling power.
