PDC has involved over half a million consumers in research provided to dozens of brand and agencies, including:
A global shampoo brand wanted to understand the impact of second-screening on advertising effectiveness in emerging markets. They believed recall and brand attribution would be lower with people who use their phones when ads come on TV, but they needed to know specifics.
They also wanted to see if there was a measurable difference in the purchase behaviour of both loyal and fickle buyers amongst those who second-screen and those who don’t.
We asked members of an existing PassivePanel questions about hair care product purchase and usage. We then uploaded audio fingerprints of ads from both the client and their competitors to each participant’s phone. Panellists who heard specific ads responded to surveys to measure recall, attribution and purchase intent.
Panellists also uploaded pictures of the hair care products they purchased during the study.
We also captured all of the websites they visited, apps they used, videos they streamed, and terms they searched.
The client could see a clear correlation between second-screening and both recall and attribution performance. They could also map the consumer's mobile journey from ad exposure to product purchase and confirm the correlation of ad exposure to product purchase conversions. The client reported that they had never before been able to access data like this. They are now planning longer-term studies in multiple countries.
