Teads unveils key learnings on attention measurement across 500+ global campaigns

Teads Attention Program, approaching its one-year anniversary, fostered insights that spanned 20 countries, 120 advertisers and 2.5B+ impressions measured

By exchange4media Staff | May 25, 2023 1:09 PM   |   4 min read


Teads has released the findings of its recent attention meta-analysis, which has further proven the practicality of attention as a new measurement metric, and underscored actionable ways for companies to leverage attention for improved brand lift and campaign outcomes across the funnel.


Through this research, Teads was able to validate the four drivers of attention – Quality of Media, Ad Experience, Relevance, and Creative – identified through joint research with major holding companies, and provide key insights into each, as measured by Lumen and Adelaide.


Teads found that quality premium publishers, such as Condé Nast and news publishers, outperform on attention metrics, with quality Teads content driving attention levels at least three times higher than Facebook, according to multiple measurement sources. Additionally, Teads' premium ad formats deliver attention comparable to YouTube, with a 15% higher APM (attentive seconds per 1,000 impressions) target compared to Lumen's December 2022 benchmark, while also being better perceived and more efficient.


Moreover, Teads extended outside of digital media by measuring CTV within an omnichannel campaign across its digital and CTV inventory. Teads identified +21% lift in omnichannel attention compared to the digital-only benchmark, according to Adelaide. In one campaign, by optimizing with high attention media across all channels, a brand drove 42% stronger lifts against Teads’ in store-visitation benchmarks.


Teads' research revealed that the four drivers of attention have a validated relationship between in-market attention measures and campaign outcomes – across different measurement partners, different verticals, and that maximizing attention can result in greater brand lift.


Jean-Paul Edwards, Managing Director, Product, OMD Worldwide said: “Attention has always been core to effective communication. At OMG, we have focused for several years on how we can effectively manage optimal delivery of the required attention for any given brief. Building on numerous attention testing programs, we have created a framework of attention parameters bespoke to each brief with tools to optimize decisions across planning, placement and creative execution. Our deep involvement with the Teads Attention Program supports that understanding, generating uplifts in attention to delivering stronger brand metrics and sales performance.”


Lastly, there is significant room for optimization on media and creative to increase attentive reach and dwell time, indicating that the adaptation of the creative to the platform and the relevance of the placement and context further enhance attention levels, with early studies showing a 20% uplift in attention across the flight of a campaign.


Srijoni Dutta Gupta, Consumer Marketing Manager, Estee Lauder EMEA said: “With the help of Teads’ team of experts, our Spring ’23 Supreme moisturizer campaign was a successful approach to strategically optimizing existing campaign assets while expressing our new consumer insights-driven storytelling in a much more impactful, measurable way. Teads understood our needs, providing valuable consumer testing data and fine-tuning turnkey deliverables for our markets.”


With increased focus on action driven by Attention Measurement, Teads is keenly focused on developing insight in three core areas: CTV and how to maximize attention on the TV screen, the intersection of context and attention as a component of measurement and planning in a cookieless world, and activation opportunities, particularly around product development to ensure highly attentive, efficient campaigns that deliver on outcomes across channels.


Liset Otten, Global Digital Activation Manager, JDE said: “The findings from our initial attention pilots with Teads conducted in the UK and Germany have inspired further roll out of attention measurement product to 10+ markets. We see significant opportunity to reduce wastage in digital buying and ensure that we are reaching people and not just devices. While we continue to move through the stages of our phased approach to testing and evaluating the attention metric, we strongly encourage markets to consider participating, as feasible.”


Caroline Hugonenc, Senior Vice President, Research & Insights, Teads adds: “What is truly unique with Teads Attention Program is that we are enabling clients to test, learn and measure outcomes related to attention on live campaigns. From these findings, we have seen clients embrace attention and build a competitive advantage as the industry aligns on a standard definition of attention as a metric. To support them in their journey, we will keep on innovating on the measurement solutions that we are proposing but also on the integration of attention metrics in the activation and planning stage."

Cipla introduces ‘Tuffies’ to promote better respiratory care in children

The campaign has been supported by Sonali Bendre

By exchange4media Staff | May 24, 2023 12:15 PM   |   4 min read

Sonali Bendre

This World Asthma Awareness month, Cipla launched its general patient & public awareness initiative – ‘Tuffies’ – directing more targeted awareness on improving respiratory care amongst children, especially those living with asthma. Overcoming myths and stigma associated with chronic respiratory diseases like asthma and its treatment, the Tuffies campaign is targeted at engaging children between the ages 5 through 10 yrs of age and their caregivers. Sonali Bendre launched the campaign by unveiling the Tuffies Comic Book and introducing the Tuffies Team, a group of relatable, young, adventurous characters.

A widespread non-communicable disease, asthma is the most common chronic condition among children affecting nearly 7.9% of Indian children, with about 80% of asthmatics experiencing symptoms during the first 6 years of their life. Insufficient awareness about the disease, misconceptions and perceived myths associated with its cornerstone treatment i.e. inhalation therapy, have resulted in many cases of asthma going undiagnosed and even untreated. All this ultimately results in poor control of asthma, leading to a significantly impacted quality of life that includes frequent hospitalizations and missed school days.

The Tuffies Comic Book features - Vicky, an aspiring detective who lives with asthma but does not let it hold him back, along with his sister Mini, best friend Gullu and Vicky’s trusted companion Mr. Puffy. These characters will remain central to the Tuffies campaign. The comic book will showcase the Tuffies team as they tackle challenging situations and solve mysteries in their hometown with Mr. Puffy providing guidance and motivation through his mantra ‘Breathe in and count to ten, breathe out and let go of doubt’. Through their adventures, the campaign aims to spread the message that asthma should not limit a child's potential, as long as they take the right treatment and adhere to it. While the campaign launches with the comic book, an animated video series is to follow.

Speaking on the launch of the campaign, Dr. Vikas Gupta, India Rx Head, Cipla Ltd. said, “Patients are at the heart of everything we do at Cipla, and this ethos is reflected in the efforts we have made to transform the lives of those living with asthma. Through our public awareness campaigns, we have made significant strides in raising awareness about the condition and trying to set the record straight on one of its recommended treatments i.e. inhalation therapy. Broadening our focus and for the effective management of this condition in the country, we’re excited to launch the ‘Tuffies’ campaign. With this campaign we aim to inspire children to overcome limitations and help create more open channels of communication for caregivers to make informed decisions in consultation with their child’s physician. This further deepens our efforts to bring about a positive change in people’s perception towards asthma and its treatment”.

Adding her thoughts actor Sonali Bendre said, “Cipla’s work in the asthma awareness space has over the years sparked a social movement that has served as inspiration for asthmatics across the country. And now, with the Tuffies campaign, the company extends its focus toward helping children with asthma and their parents by; combating misinformation related to the condition, enabling informed decision-making, and encouraging children to overcome their limitations. Launching the campaign with a comic book, which can entertain and inform is truly a smart way of spreading awareness about a health condition, especially amongst little ones. And as a mother, it gives me immense delight to be able to lend my voice and platform to a campaign, that has such a strong message and cause.”

Prasad Ajgaonkar, CEO of animation studio iRealities who along with his team conceptualised the Tuffies campaign characters and storyline said, “We’re happy to have been able to contribute to Cipla's efforts to promote better respiratory care in the country. Our expertise in children's animation and engaging storytelling has allowed us to spread a message of positivity and hope to children living with asthma, through this campaign. Tuffies is a great example of how creative storytelling can be used to effectively reach out and connect to an audience.”

Over the years Cipla has championed awareness around asthma through its #BerokZindagi campaign, using a multitude of creative formats and platforms to spark social conversation, engage the public and inspire change for asthmatics across the country. With the Tuffies campaign, Cipla dives deeper into specific patient cohorts urging children with asthma to unlock their true potential and empowering their parents to help them do so.
