TARGETING BASED ON CONSUMER ONLINE BEHAVIOUR CREATES MASSIVE LIFT IN AD RESPONSIVENESS
Redwood City, California (ots/PRNewswire) -
- Increases Click Rate Responses by up to 30 Fold
Online ads that are shown to consumers based on in-category behaviours have a substantial impact on responsiveness according to independent research conducted by Feedback Research (www.feedbackresearch.com), a division of Claria(SM) Corporation.
The recent study, utilizing BehaviourLink's behavioural insights platform, highlighted how behavioural targeting technology can dramatically increase the response rates of standard IAB banner ad units within publisher Web sites. The study examined run of site ads from sixteen Travel, Finance, Personals and Retail advertisers at a major portal. The ads were evaluated on initial click rate responses from consumers whose recent behaviour indicated an interest in these categories versus the response rates of consumers who hadn't showed any similar category interest in the past two weeks.
"This study is the first to conclusively show how targeting consumers' relevant commercial behaviour can drive a massive lift in the performance of ad campaigns," commented Jeff McFadden, president and CEO of Claria Corporation. "Given that we have the technology to produce results of this magnitude, we are in a unique position to use the BehaviourLink network to work with publishers to deliver these types of results for all advertisers."
Behaviourally Targeted Ads Provide up to 30 Times the Lift as Untargeted Ads
@@start.t1@@ -- Consumers who exhibited category behavviour and were shown an ad fo
that same category within one hour, were on average, 14 times more
likely to respond than consumers who had not exhibited a category
behaviour in the past two weeks.
-- The Retail category showed the greatest lift with consumers. Those
category consumers shown an ad within one hour of exhibiting a
category behaviour were 30 times more likely to respond than consumers
who had not exhibited a category behaviour in the past two weeks.
-- Even when relevant ads were shown days or weeks after observing a
related behaviour, response rates were up to 360% higher than run of
- Finance +360% lift (1.86% vs. .41%)
- Travel +210% lift (.74% vs. .24%)
- Personals +120% lift (.40% CTR vs. .14%)
- Retail +110% lift (2.3% CTR vs. 1.1%)
-- Consumers who exhibited a category behaviour, and then received a
category ad at a run of site (ROS) section within an hour of that
behaviour, responded more favorably than consumers who saw that same
ad contextually within the vertical section of the Web site:
- In the Travel category, ads that were shown in the travel section
achieved a 1.03% click rate versus a 2.02% response rate of the
behaviourally targeted ROS ads displayed outside the Travel category
within 1 hour.
-- In terms of the impact of frequency, there was no decline in response
rates for the first three impressions when the ads were behaviourally
"Results like these are not surprising given that our Institute's research shows that consumers are tired of the barrage of untargeted advertising and that they would respond more favorably to ads that were relevant to them," added Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman of Ponemon Institute. "This not only improves consumers' response to relevant ads but also enhances consumers' trust and confidence in publisher Web sites."
