Adnami OMD Study Release - Business Express

Eye tracking findings emphasise the importance of measuring attention in digital advertising

Data from Userneeds and OMD Denmark shines a light on the importance of high impact formats when it comes to grabbing audience attention 

Tech company Adnami has hailed new findings by research company Userneeds and OMD Denmark that lays bare the attention-grabbing power of high impact formats, some of which proved to deliver 45 times more attention than standard display ads.

The data, collected over a 6 month period across a selected range of advertisers, pointed to the difference between viewability and attention generated by various formats – from standard display ads of various sizes to Adnami’s high-impact top scroll and interscroll formats. 

The study revealed that Adnami’s formats generated an average ten-fold uplift in attention, and in some (extreme) cases up to 45 times more attention per 1000 impressions when compared to standard display, according to Userneeds’ eye-tracking panel. What’s more, a standard display format (160×600) with the highest viewability was in fact the format with the lowest ability to drive user attention. ​​ 

The Data also links attention to effectiveness, measured on brand preference and ad recall. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the longer the ad is viewed for, the more likely it is to make an impact on brand perception, with the findings supporting the inclusion of high impact formats in campaigns by default.

“Viewability is not the same as attention and this study shows that existing metrics don’t go far enough when it comes to understanding what ‘good’ looks like in digital media,” says Adnami’s CEO, Simon Kvist Gaulshøj. “The winners will be those who understand if their audiences connect with their creative and media, and if this connection delivers an outcome. This study highlights the importance of considering metrics in a deeper and more qualitative way. Viewability is meaningless if an audience is paying little attention.”

OMD Denmark’s Director, Peter Loell, comments: “With the industry still grappling with the most appropriate metrics to assess the efficiency of campaigns, this data shows that well-designed, high impact ads aren’t just viewable, but they capture attention, too. It’s important to remember that no metric in isolation will give us the whole picture. Advertisers must seek a balance between reach, attention and action in the media mix and not focus solely on price, nor on viewability.”
