Congratulations to The Wendy's Company for having the top TV in-market ad of the week measured by ABX for ad effectiveness. I loved how they had a “Wendy’s Morning Break” interview format! Advertising Benchmark Index - ABX measures thousands of in-market ads a week across all media types globally for their ad effectiveness.  An average ad measured would have an ABX Score of 100.  Wendy's had a score of 133.  Wendy's Gender Equality Index for both Female and Male were also above average.  #wendys n#thewendyscompany #abx #adxadbenchmark #adeffectiveness #topadsoftheweek #advertising #advertisinginsights #marketing #marketinginsights #restaurantmarketing #restaurantadvertising #advertisingstrategy #ROAS

Mr. Clean - Top US TV Ad Of The Week 8-23-22

Posted by Diane Light Waight on Aug 23, 2022 4:32:08 PM

Procter & Gamble's Mr. Clean MagicEraser had the top US TV ad of the week measured by Advertising Benchmark Index - ABX for ad effectiveness, with an overall ABX Index Score of 129. The ABX Index was high for a number of KPIs, including Reputation = 152, Purchase = 235, Look For = 189, Recommend = 164. An ABX Index of 100 is an average ad. Mr. Clean's jingle was created in 1958. All I needed to hear was the sonic branding from that jingle to take me back to my childhood! Since watching the commercial I find myself singing "Mr. Clean, Mr. Clean"!  #procterandgamble #abx #adbenchmarkindex #mrclean #adeffectiveness #integratedmarketing #ROAS #ROI #advertising #marketing #integratedmarketing #multimedia #multichannel #sonicbranding

Wayfair - A Top US Online Video Ad Of The Week 7-18-22

Posted by Diane Light Waight on Jul 20, 2022 10:51:40 PM

 Wayfair's  “Looking for furniture prices you won't believe?” ad was one of the Top U.S. In-Market Online Video Ads Of The Week measured for advertising effectiveness by ABX Advertising Benchmark Index the week of 7-18-22.  The ad had an ABX score of 130, that was an above average score for GenPop, Category, and Medium.  ABX's Gender Equality Index (GEI) for the Male Character was 111 and the Girl Character 108, both above average.  This ad was visually pleasing, upbeat, and had a clear message. 

I liked how Wayfair showed different products that were on sale in each room of the house with different characters.   The character, who stole the show, in my opinion, and what made me want to view the ad multiple times was the dog!  I believe dog lovers like me would agree!

Duracell - A Top Video Ad Of The Week 7-11-22

Posted by Diane Light Waight on Jul 11, 2022 7:30:54 PM

Duracell had one of the Top Online In-Market Video Ads Of The Week measured in the U.S. for advertising effectiveness by ABX Advertising Benchmark Index the week of 7-11-22 .  I loved watching this Duracell ad.  You watch two RC trucks racing side-by-side up the Duracell battery, with the Duracell Coppertop Powerboost winning.  What a fun visual!  It reminded me of playing the water gun games at the carnival, where you aimed at the bullseye and the one who moved their character to the very top first won.

We all know Chipotle fell from grace in 2015 with an e-coli scandal that cost them billions of dollars over many years.  Today, they are more successful than ever.  Many stories have been written about Chipotle's multi-pronged strategy to recover, one of which was its dramatically improved ad creative and messaging. ABX tested 100's of Chipotle ads from 2015 through YTD and found powerful correlations to revenue.  The story below is a teaser of those findings, which will be presented in full to students at Pennsylvania State University soon.

In a study of 145 COVID-related Radio ads measured by ABX since March 4th, advertising effectiveness scores were amazingly high.  Radio spots featuring thanks to first-responders, helpful advice to listeners regarding resisting the virus, and conveying a serious tone in their announcements all did well.  Of course there are always those that don't work, as well.  Below are a sample of each and some tips for using radio effectively in crisis times.
