A View Into Television Campaigns like no other

We know you work hard to optimize your client’s campaigns. Sometimes that entails using different 800 numbers or web based promotion codes to measure consumer response and resulting ROI down to the creative, network, and daypart level. With different air dubs going to different networks, things can sometimes go wrong. At your moment of need, you can turn to AdSphere™ to answer all of these critical questions:

  • 1 Did the spot, 5 min, or infomercial creative really run?
  • 2 Were there any audio or video problems with the airing?
  • 3 Was the 800 number or promotion code in the airing correct?
  • 4 Did a competitor’s spot run in close proximity?
  • 5 Did the spot clear in the correct break type?
  • 6 Was the program description correct? (for infomercials)

Creative & Media Research Redefined

In the direct response television industry, creative success is measured each and every day. Advertisers are constantly investing in new creative in hopes of increasing their television advertising ROI and KPIs. Many DR advertisers use creative variations (different 800 numbers and/or web promotion codes) to accurately track both creative and media performance. Adsphere™ is the first television research system that allows you to segment and study campaigns that use DR variations. Measured DR creatives and network/dayparts that don’t perform well are quickly discontinued to the favor of better performing ones. This intelligence is unlocked in AdSphere™ creating valuable insights as to both creative and media performance for 8,151 brands.

AdSphere™ is purpose built using advanced pattern recognition along with automated content recognition (ACR) technology to identify direct response (DR) attributes in television programming such as toll free numbers, price points, web addresses, and more. When a DR attribute is discovered, AdSphere™ compares the surrounding video & audio wave pattern against existing creatives in its expansive database. When no fingerprint match is found, this is how AdSphere™ knows it has discovered a new DR creative test. These new DR candidates are promptly assigned to an AdSphere™ researcher for registration.

DRMetrix created Adsphere™ as the first television research system designed to identify all new brand/direct and direct response creative tests. Once identified, all airings of these creatives are tracked using state-of-the-art automated content recognition (ACR) across 120 networks monitored by AdSphere™. The end result is the industry’s most comprehensive database of DR creative with complete airing detail.

As an agency creative and/or media professional, you have access to review all of these creative tests with insight into which have been successful and which have not. Imagine being able to research any industry category and quickly determine the most effective creative and media approaches used to date while also knowing which approaches to avoid. All of this and more is possible thanks to AdSphere™
