Digital Brand Effect Research | MeasureUp Videos & Presentations | Latest Podcasts

Dear IAB Community,

The year is almost at a close, but the pace hasn’t let up. In the past two weeks we have held two of the biggest events on our calendar – MeasureUp and our Sydney Ad Ops Conference – and the initial feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

MeasureUp saw us host over 240 people at PwC in Sydney for a day full of learning from brands, agencies and tech companies around digital ad effectiveness and measurement experiences. Much of the content from the day is available now for members and those who attended, so check it out and learn about some best practice and experience to help get the most from your ad investment. Thanks to all our members and to our sponsors IAS, Google, Nielsen, Facebook and supporting partners ARN, Ferrero and Verizon: It couldn’t happen without you.

At MeasureUp we launched an Australian-first study in conjunction with Kantar. The Digital Brand Effect report analysed the brand impact delivered by digital and other media based on over 145 Australian Kantar Cross Media Brand Effectiveness studies, over 1,300 Global Kantar Cross Media studies, and 14,500 Global Kantar Digital Brand Lift studies. The report is available to the public and can be downloaded here.

Ad Ops is always a highlight of the year. In fact, if you didn’t know, we run it in both Sydney and Melbourne annually, under the leadership of IAB Tech Lead Jonas Jaanimagi and Head of Membership Jenn Thomas. We’ll be back in Melbourne in mid-2020, so keep an eye out on LinkedIn for the dates and speakers in the new year. A special shoutout to our incredible sponsors Index Exchange, The Trade Desk, Pubmatic, OpenX, Google and Fox Sports.

But the year isn’t over just yet. We have our Q3 Online Advertising Expenditure Report due out before December, and we will have more amazing research and playbooks to get to you before the end of the year, so stay tuned.

The Digital Brand Effect

Digital Advertising Glossary of Terms - 2019
It is essential for our industry to create common language across the different platforms, so we have tasked our Ad Effectiveness Council and Video Advertising Council with updating a series of glossaries originally published in August 2017. These interactive Glossaries are available to the public, and aim to standardise and explain the common terminology used by digital advertising experts.  (We also have Outdoor and Audio in the works.)
Future of Measurement Report
The Australian online advertising market has grown significantly in size and complexity, and hence audience and advertising measurement needs to continue to evolve to ensure diverse commercial opportunities and monetization of digital audiences. The Future of Measurement review, presented at a town hall event in March this year, has been conducted to understand the priorities of the market (including advertisers, ad agencies, media owners, tech providers and research/data vendors) to drive confidence in digital advertising into the future. The scope of our review has defined the digital measurement landscape to include content ratings, ad ratings, ad verification and ad impact.
MeasureUp 2019 Content
Video content and presentations from the sessions and panels from MeasureUp 2019 is now available to IAB members and those who attended the conference. It's all about ad effectiveness and using the right metrics, so settle in and prepare to learn a few things.
