That is why some freelancers and smaller agencies cannot really list all of the clients they have worked for as it counts as ‘off the record’ services. This trend continues nowadays, and a new study shows that technical work is the most outsource component. The Digital Outsourcing Survey Report 2012, made by Econsultancy in partnership with United Studios, surveyed 132 senior... Read More >

GfK Launches New Tool for Advanced Ad Analyses

2012-07-02 by EPR Staff

GfK suggests that relying on ad impressions alone gives an incomplete understanding of online campaign performance. Impressions, click-through rates or even branding metrics do not indicate whether the advertisement was on the visible screen of the user, nor for how long. GfK is launching a new instrument, DeliveryControl.dx, to enhance ad performance analyses. DeliveryControl.dx tracks browser activity, the position of the advertisement on the website, the user's screen resolution, and any scrolling by the user. Advertisers can thus gage whether advertisements were fully displayed (100%) or if at least 90%, 75%, 50% or 1% were visible on the user's screen,... Read More >
