Life Insurance Selling Announces Top-Performing Ads of March 2011 Issue
Denver, CO, June 14, 2011 – Life Insurance Selling, a Summit Business Media publication, announces the top-performing print advertisements highlighted in a Baxter Research Center, Inc. advertising effectiveness survey of the March 2011 issue.
The Baxter Research ad study measures the overall effectiveness of ads among readers, then reports an ad’s performance in the context of three essential steps to the brand building experience: exposure, engagement, and involvement. The research tracks ad effectiveness in two ways: “recall seeing” and “read some.” (Links to the actual ads of the top performers are linked to their names below.)
An ad’s “recall seeing” score shows the ability of an ad to attract the reader’s attention and indicates that the reader had been exposed to an item by either seeing it or reading it. The following companies received the highest recall “seeing” scores:
An ad’s “read some” score indicates the percentage of “recall seeing” readers, who after seeing the item, were engaged enough to be led into the copy by the headline, layout or subject material. These ads effectively engaged Life Insurance Selling readers after capturing their initial attention. The following companies received the highest recall “starting to read” scores:
