National Underwriter Life & Health Announces Top Performing Advertisements
Erlanger, KY, May 9, 2011 – National Underwriter Life & Health, a Summit Business Media publication, announced the top performing print advertisements highlighted in a Baxter Research Center, Inc. advertising effectiveness survey of the February 21, 2011 issue.
The Baxter Research ad study measures the overall effectiveness of advertisements as it relates to a reader and then reports on the ad performance in the context of the three steps recognized as essential to the brand building experience: exposure, engagement, and involvement. An advertisements “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 “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 National Underwriter Life & Health readers after capturing their initial attention.
The following companies received the highest recall “seeing” scores:
