Measuring contextual vs. non contextual video
vi worked with research company Lumen and a leading coffee brand to determine the impact of contextual environments on ad effectiveness. Known coffee machine owners were divided into three groups:
One group received an ad for the coffee brand out of context, where only the ad was related to coffee.
Another group received a pre-roll where the article was about coffee but the following video content was unrelated to coffee.
The third group received a completely contextual experience where the article, pre-roll and video were all coffee related.
The results clearly demonstrate the importance of context when it comes to delivering effective advertising.
- Brand recall was 62% in the completely contextual environment group
- It was 56% in second group
- Brand recall stood at only 42% in the first group
- 52% more people recalled seeing the pre-roll when matched contextually
