Neuro Ad Testing

Are your ads effective? Neuro Ad Testing predicts advertising effectiveness with fMRI and provides insights for improvement.




Advertising research with fMRI

Your ad is effective when it activates the right combination of emotions that will unlock desired consumer behaviour. Though ads are processed quickly and superficially, the emotions and associations activated are stored unconsciously. The efficacy of this process will predict consumer behaviour. 

Neuro Ad Testing uses fMRI to predict the effectiveness of your advertising. You discover features in your ads which work well and features with room for improvement. Everything you need to maximize ROI.

Why use Neuro Ad Testing?

Neuro Ad Testing can:

  • Predict the outcomes of your new ad.
    Use the predictions to tweak the ad before it goes live.

  • Reduce ad spending by cutting out unnecessary advertising time.
    Scenes which don't contribute to effectiveness can be shortened or adjusted. This can save up to 10 seconds of expensive advertising time.
  • Measure short and long term effects.
    Find out what the ad effect is on sales activation and whether it makes your brand more valuable.

  • Obtain learnings to make future ads more successful.
    You can test ads that have been running for a while or old (successful) ads. Find out what you can do better and what you should keep on doing.

fMRI Neuromarketing - Wat is fMRI?

How are advertising effects predicted?

  • fMRI
    This is the only technique that can measure unconscious emotions activated by the ad. The measurements are judged against established benchmarks for Effective, Likeable and Annoying ads.

  • Eye Tracking
    Displays where viewers are deploying attention within ad scenes informing us which scenes catch the eye. 

  • Brain Guided Interpretation
    The BGI is a follow-up study used after the fMRI scan to better understanding participants' activated emotions.
