Ad testing research.
Gain feedback in the early stages of creative development to improve ad effectiveness.
In a saturated media environment, developing ads that cut through is key. By engaging consumers in this process from the get-go, we can help you to develop adverts that really resonate with the people you want to reach.
We help businesses understand how consumers react to ads in the early stages of development so you can identify the best route to take forward and determine how to strengthen your creative.
Our approach is designed to uncover both subconscious (system 1) and rational (system 2) reactions to develop holistic recommendations for your brand. Using AI-powered facial coding tools we’re able to pull apart emotional responses to ads, identifying the moments that elicit a positive reaction from consumers as well as those that need to be refined to avoid confusion or distraction. We also dig into rational reactions to understand ad recall and impact, using a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods.
Using this dual approach, we’re able to identify opportunities to enhance your ads, helping you to better engage with your target audience and deliver greater value from your marketing.
The impact ad testing research can have on your business:
By refining your ad based on consumer feedback before you start final production, you can maximize the effectiveness of your ads and increase the impact of your marketing spend.
Create comms that resonate across different markets
By helping you understand the cultural nuances in responses to ads, we can advise you on how best to tailor your marketing to succeed in different markets.
Tap into new audiences
By testing how your ads performance across different segments and demographics, we can identify appeal beyond your target audience.
