Want to independently measure the impact of your media spend on the most popular social platforms? Well then, you’ve come to the right place!

There’s no denying it – social media has changed the world. One-in-three people across the globe use social media and more than two-thirds of all internet users. As such, it’s no surprise it has become an increasingly important platform for brands to capitalise on. However, there’s no denying that it can still be a bit of a minefield when it comes to figuring out what’s really working for your brand.

That’s where the Social Media Brand Impact study from On Device Research can help.

Consumers browse their social news feed within our app environment

Step 1

Consumers log into the social media environment via our panel app. Browsing of the social news feed occurs as it normally would across social sites, but within our app environment.

Step 2

Using ad insertion technology, the client’s ad is placed within the social news feed or channel and ad exposure occurs in a natural, non-simulated way.

Using ad insertion technology
Survey panelists 24-48 hours after exposure

Step 3

Exposure to the ad is measured via our exposure engine, with panellists then asked to complete a survey 24-48 hours after exposure.

Step 4

Test and control survey groups are used to isolate brand impact, with additional ad viewability behavioural metrics layered in to the analysis alongside benchmarking against a norms database of 300+ studies.

We measure brand impact throughout the purchase funnel

What do we measure?

We measure brand impact throughout the purchase funnel: from awareness, to consideration to purchase intent

We also measure three key dimensions that speak to the power of social media: emotional engagement, message resonance, and consumer action

By applying campaign buy details to brand impact results we can also report on Cost Per Brand Uplift (CPBU), Cost Per Potential Purchaser (CPPP), Return on Brand Impact (ROBI), Total Potential Campaign Return (TPCR): applying a layer of bottom-line indicators to brand metric reporting.
