Sky releases ad engagement report for AOP members

Sky Online Engagement ResearchSky has released its research report: ‘Online Engagement: Are we there yet?’ for AOP members.

The research is intended as a step towards resolving the debate about engagement as a useful metric, and how it impacts on online advertising campaigns.

Sky’s report seeks to make engagement a more provable measure, one which clearly enhances business value - the scale was developed in conjunction with the Cranfield School of Management.

The report also shows how higher engagement leads to higher ad recall, and also higher brand awareness.
