If creative drives nearly 50% of ad effectiveness, then ensuring you leverage the best possible creative is obviously paramount. In-flight campaign optimization is, of course, fundamental. But if you’re a marketer looking to truly maximize your spend, why wouldn’t you ensure that your ad creative is optimized before it even goes out the door?
One of the longstanding industry challenges is to provide marketers the ability to run advertising effectiveness measurement at will, on demand. Instead, there is a material lag from when you commission the study to when you can read the campaign. Why is this material? Because, if your objective is to maximize return on ad spend then in-flight optimization (IFO) is critical and on-demand measurement is key to timely IFO.
IRI, Google, Sam’s Club, Nestle-Starbucks and Annalect will discuss the merits of such a solution that will meet this need through a completely automated on-demand measurement for offline sales lift and matched market studies.

The line between traditional media channels and more accountable digital channels is finally fading. Marketers have long used correlation rather than causation to measure the impact of TV media investments - totaling over $64 billion in 2018 - but the landscape is rapidly changing. Cross-platform activation and measurement is the next step to proving every dollar performed. The best marketers will be able to prove effectiveness at scale across every channel, including linear TV, addressable TV, streaming services and digital video. This seminar will highlight how to navigate the next generation of TV and measure real-world outcomes.
