In Detail

Overall Summary

A simple, colour-coded snapshot of performance, showing you at a glance how each ad tested performed versus norms across key success metrics.

Engagement Summary

Measures to help you understand the creative impact of your ad: how well the ad will capture people’s attention and how strongly it links to your brand.

Engagement Diagnostics

Understand what is driving and holding back engagement via verbatim likes and dislikes.

Video Deep Dive

For video tests we provide a comprehensive emotional response diagnosis. We also evaluate distinctiveness and buzz potential which we know are key to a video being shared.

Observed Behavioural Metrics

Using ad-replacement technology we are able to show online video on a YouTube page and Facebook ads on a respondent’s Facebook page. We record how long respondents view the ads, did they like and share them, etc. to understand how much attention and engagement they can generate.

Brand Associations

Measure how strongly the associations you want your ad to build will stick in people’s minds.
Diagnose this with an assessment of how well the ad is understood.

Predisposition - Persuasion

If your ad is designed to drive short-term sales through persuasion, understand how the ad is performing among different user groups.
Then diagnose this performance by exploring how well the ad conveyed new, credible or believable information.

Predisposition - Equity

Brands that are meaningful, different and salient command a greater market share, are more likely to grow and are able to charge a premium. LinkExpress tells you if your ad is building meaningful and different associations for your brand.

Detailed Measure View

A detailed look at each data point, for every question asked, provides a granular comparison of scores across all the ads you’ve tested.

Summary measures

The summary report includes three validated summary metrics: the Impact score (for market cut through), a prediction of viral potential for videos and the full Power Contribution score (summary of the ad’s overall likely effectiveness).

Comprehensive And Customisable
