Creative Strategy an Important Driver of Strong Creative Execution

The relationship between the creative strategy’s score and the resulting execution’s score helps to shed light on the value of a strong, upfront creative strategy. Study findings showed that of the six campaigns with an above-average creative strategy, five resulted in an above-average execution (83 percent). Similarly, among the three campaigns with a below-average creative strategy, each of them resulted in a below average execution. Additionally, none of the campaigns with a below-average creative strategy score performed above-average on creative execution.

"While it is easy to overlook, getting the creative strategy correct at the outset of a campaign is fundamental to creating campaigns that actually work," added Mr. Bernie. "There are several phases to a campaign that must go right, while getting any one of those phases wrong significantly increases the likelihood that the campaign will not perform well in market."

comScore ARS Consumer Choice Score Definition

The ARS Consumer Choice Score (formerly the ARS Persuasion Score), is the industry’s most well- documented and independently validated measure of advertising effectiveness. It quantifies changes in consumer preference through a simulated purchase exercise with and without exposure to the creative. It measures the ability of an ad to influence brand preference, and it has been shown to be predictive of advertising-induced sales with a correlation of 0.90 between ARS Consumer Choice Scores and in-market actual sales performance

comScore ARS Fair Share Benchmark Definition

The selling/value propositions and executions in the Fair Share Benchmark database are determined to be "below average," "average," or "above-average" based on their relationship to the Fair Share Degree-of-Difficulty norm (at the 90 percent confidence level). This benchmark takes into account category/brand loyalty, the number of brands competing in the category, and the advertised brand’s market share to determine the score expected, on average, given the current category and brand environment.
