Ad Effectiveness Council

The Ad Effectiveness Council, was established in March 2017 to help industry identify and refine the best methods to assess the impact of advertising across different activities.  This Council explores how digital measurement data can be combined with other forms of media data to enhance cross media planning and buying.

The Council includes representatives from publishers, data agencies, media agencies, research companies and advertisers. The Council’s first piece of work was glossary on common ad effectiveness related terms and was followed by a comprehensive Digital Ad Effectiveness Playbook looking at different ways of measuring effectiveness and guidance on their usage.

In the first quarter of 2018 the Council will be investigating the role of creative in driving effective and efficient marketing outcomes. The Council will also help set the agenda for the IAB’s annual measurement conference MeasureUp along with the Audience Measurement Council.
