Robots, 'facial coding' and instant focus groups: Unilever wants better metrics faster and cheaper
Ad Age
If there was anything to take from Unilever's message at the Advertising Research Foundation Re:Think 2015, it's this: the world's second-biggest ad spender wants to move from standard ad-industry metrics as recall and persuasion toward measuring how well people engage with marketing. Stan Sthanunathan, senior VP consumer and market insights, said the company already has around 15 pilots for innovative research methods, looking largely at non-traditional providers. Related to this we can let you know that Unilever has standardized on Affectiva to emotion test all their ads — more than 3,800 ads around the world in the past 18 months.
