DoubleVerify Launches Attention Measurement, Mondelez First To Use

DoubleVerify this morning unveiled the DV Attention Lab, a new attention-based measurement service its positioning as an alternative to third-party cookie-based targeting. The service, which uses in-depth attention data to measure ad exposure and engagement, has Mondelez International as its charter client.

“We are excited to see them launch the Attention Lab and support the industry as attention-based measurement and targeting becomes even more critical,” Mondelez Director of Global Media Strategy & Planning and Americas CX Lead jennifer Brain-Mennes stated.

Mondelez participated in a pilot using data to evaluate and optimize performance of a cross-platform display campaign for an undisclosed popular snack brand. The technology helped identify “high-exposure impressions” for the campaign.

Once an advertiser has established a foundation of media quality, DoubleVerify overlays privacy-friendly attention signals to help provide broader insights into the core drivers of media performance.

The technology evaluates more than 50 data signals across two attention-based data cohorts — exposure and engagement.

Exposure measures the prominence and intensity of the ad experience, and engagement measures user presence and the depth of user engagement within the ad experience.

The test for Mondelez produced a nine percentage point increase in brand favorability, an eight point lift in consideration, overall, and a five point rise in purchase intent among the brand’s primary target audience, the company said.

The two data sets power the index to helps marketers surface key performance signals at a granular level to help fuel in near real-time the insights required to target ads without cookies.

The lab features a team of data scientists, product experts, and marketing analysts — a group of more than 20 employees globally focused on providing advertisers with insights and recommendations on campaign performance. Insight will cover industry benchmark reports, best practice guides, illustrative case studies, and more. 

DoubleVerify Wednesday announced the launch of the DV Attention Lab with inaugural customers, Mondelez International. The measurement aims to provide an alternative to third-party cookies by optimizing campaign performance using in-depth attention data on ad engagement and ad exposure.
