Questionnaire flow and key metrics definitions

  • Story Recall. Respondents type in the brand they think the ad is for. The brand is then revealed, and respondents then rate how strongly they think the ad fits the brand. 
  • Music & Narrator affinity (optional). Using a 10 point scale, respondents are asked: "How much do you like or dislike the narrator’s voice in the advert?" and "How much do you like or dislike the music in the advert?". Both scales are anchored by endpoints of ‘hate’ and ‘love’. 
  • Emotions. Respondents are asked to select which emotions the ad made them feel, and how strongly (low, mid, or high intensity) they were impacted by them. 
  • Messaging. A list of messages or attributes is configured at setup. On this question, respondents select which of these they associate most closely with the ad they have just seen. This can be used to ensure that the correct benefits of the ad are cutting through to consumers
