On average* only 15% of all desktop ads served are actually seen by human eyes*. In other words, 87% of all impressions are worthless, as they have no possibility of creating any effect whatsoever for their brand. Pulse can help you improve this, as it helps you optimize your digital media investments against key attention metrics, which in turn will increase your advertising effects. Quickly and with granularity.

Attention data also helps you understand how your messages work in different channels. If you only have 1.5 seconds of attention you can't tell a full story, or introduce a new product. And if your video ad gets an average of 2.8 seconds of attention, people must be able to understand whom the ad is for in that time. If they don't, the impact your ad could generate will still be lost on your brand.

Viewability is an important baseline metric, but it only represents the possibility for someone to see the ad. It says nothing about whether they actually saw it. But with attention data, that uncertainty no longer exists. And as only ads that are seen can have any effects, attention is the metric you want to focus your attention on, too. Both to understand the quality of your advertising, and the quality of the media you buy.

Does your online advertising get the attention it needs?

green arrow right

And do you adapt your online advertising to the attention it receives?

For online advertising, the choice of media channels and ad platforms determines your ability to create attention. The creative execution and your targeting will of course play a role too, but only within the confines and possibilities determined by the choice of media. So the trick is to first capture as much attention as you can with the available budget by selecting the relevant media platforms. And then secondly to align your creative and message strategy to the attention you receive to impact people's minds. Only then do you get the full impact of your online advertising.

Online advertising efficiency

How well does your brand's online advertising capture people's attention? Or in more formal terms, what precentage of your delivered impressions result in viewed ads? Equating viewable impressions to views is highly misleading - but unfortunately also only too common - and means we risk making the wrong conclusions about our online advertising performance and efficiency.

Instead, track the attention your ads, and your competitors', receive and benchmark your performance. And move from share of voice based on spend to a more relevant share of voice based on attention received.

Align your creative message with the attention you receive

How much attention does your brand retain?

How long do people actually look at your ad? The attention you receive differs significantly between platforms. This affects your creative executions, both what you can say and how you say it. Choose digital platforms and formats based on what you want to achieve, and tailor your creative executions accordingly.
