Half-Day Attention Metrics Conference presented by Adelaide

Attention metrics calculate the likelihood of attention paid to an ad placement. Using various data points to model consumer attention – such as ad size, position, duration, and clutter – they are used to evaluate the performance of media, creative, and audience. These metrics range from loose proxies like viewability to direct measures like eye gaze using lab- or panel-based eye-tracking data.

Attention metrics solve one of the biggest challenges facing advertisers today – measuring the quality of media placements in a rapidly fragmenting landscape. The leading attention tools look to predict the likelihood of attention and subsequent outcomes.

In the past year, global brands and agencies have deployed attention strategies across their entire media stack, including planning, measurement, and optimization. As attention matures from a test-and-learn tactic, how can marketers ensure they are minding its nuances and leveraging best practices?

HOW ATTENTION IMPACTS BEHAVIORAL OUTCOMES, INCLUDING SEARCH

The connection between high-quality, attentive media and brand outcomes has been well-proven by Adelaide since its conception in 2019, and now, the same can be said of lower-funnel outcomes. This session explores why it’s important for marketers to understand the relationship between attention and consumer behavior and how to leverage those insights to improve lower-funnel outcomes. We’ll examine findings from brands currently working with DISQO and Adelaide to measure the impact of attention on mid-and bottom-funnel metrics like competitor site visits, search behavior, and purchase, as well as how post-ad view behavioral data can help improve advertising performance.

THE ROLE OF ATTENTION METRICS IN THE CHANGING TV MEASUREMENT ECOSYSTEM

As the television industry looks to alternative currencies to effectively value inventory across linear and CTV, attention has emerged as a viable metric. We know that ads are more effective when people are in the room to view the ad. A recent report by academics at Cornell University, the University of Delaware, and the University of California San Diego revealed a very strong correlation between TV ad attention and increased consumer online searches for the brand. Increases in attention lead to positive business outcomes — from increased store visits and web traffic to better brand recall. Marketers are increasingly seeking opportunities to leverage attention metrics to improve campaign performance. This discussion will look at:

  • How to use attention metrics as a quality measure to evaluate placements across networks, dayparts, and programs in the media planning process
  • How to maximize attentive CPM (aCPM) to ensure more value from investments
  • How to use attention metrics to track campaign performance in-flight and make adjustments as necessary

THE ARF’S PERSPECTIVE ON ATTENTION METRICS

The Advertising Research Foundation is the standard-bearer for unbiased quality in research on advertising, media and marketing. The importance of attention metrics has been widely debated. The ARF sees a role for attention metrics as well as a relationship between attention and effectiveness.  In this session the ARF will explore both sides of the debate covering issues including whether attention metrics can serve as a primary or secondary currency and connecting attention metrics to outcomes.
