Attention Breakdown and Examples


When we test ads, one of our key measures is 'attention'. Attention scores help us find whether the media has been efficient, what the creative strengths/weakness' are, what the key drivers of cut-through are, whether the ad will wearout, etc. Using our add+impact methodology, we are able to get an accurate breakdown of what viewers are thinking and give the ad a score between 1-10 (6 being our benchmark for an effective ad).

We have eight key metrics that make up the 'attention' score... brands should consider all eight when making a campaign.

An example of the attention score breakdown:
