There’s a reason the ABX advertising measurement normative database is the largest and most accurate in the business. ABX management applies proprietary technology and best-practice methodology to each phase of the research process. ABX has also tested more ads than anyone on the planet, 150,000 to date.
Ads are collected each day and are chosen for evaluation using an automated random selection algorithm. This algorithm assures a mix of ads by media type in the same proportion as the universe of all ads, and then groups them for testing. Ad order is randomized to avoid position order bias.
A representative and balanced sample of consumers are randomly selected from among those qualified. A general population stratified random probability sampling design uses a blended sample. Participants double opt-in and are balanced by age within gender, and by geography. Additional demographic, segmentation, product use, social media and media consumption are collected. Standardization across all advertising measurement sampling enables the most accurate normative database of advertising measurement in the world.
The sample consists of:
The ABX survey uses a proprietary “ocular” communications survey system that provides improved accuracy, higher interview satisfaction and better compliance. It generates 40% more data than traditional “text based” surveys. This single-solution, highly repeatable methodology ensures that every respondent is presented with the same interviewing experience and is identical in all markets and for all languages.
