  • Emotionally resonant and highly impactful advertising for Capital One successfully differentiated and built brand responses, as well as driving web traffic and applications.
  • TV and National Newspapers are the perfect partnership. They are processed in different but complementary ways: TV is more passive, whereas newspapers engage active processing. Both media are heavily consumed in the evening. Media profiles are complementary: newspapers compensate for the inherent weaknesses of commercial TV in London/South and among younger, more upmarket consumers. Together, the brand impact should be stronger than either medium separately.
  • The Capital One Identity Theft campaign gained high levels of recognition across all media, with 90% of the target recognising at least one element. The highly engaging newspaper ads achieved strong standout, helped by synergy with TV, excellent branding and divergence from the cluttered, overly rational ‘norm’ for financial ads.91% agreed the newspaper ads were eye–catching, compared with a category average of 44% in Finance and National Newspapers 2007 research.(For further insight into finance category and newspaper advertising go to nmauk.co.uk/finance).
  • Analysis of the data focuses on a comparison of:1) Those who recognise the TV advertising only (TV solus)2) Those who recognise both the TV and newspaper advertising (TV + NP)3) Those who recognise any of the newspaper advertising (Any NP)4) Those who recognise TV and online newspaper advertising (TV + Online NP)5) Those who recognise TV, newspapers and online newspaper advertising (TV + NP + Online NP)Research Details: Pre-post tracking by Millward Brown among the same respondents (brand/category interest disguised at pre-stage), to maintain changes among people seeing different media and account for any existing predispositions of any media group.Sample: 796 adults 25-60, credit card owners, decision makers, would not reject direct provider.
  • The TV and newspaper campaign successfully drove applications for Capital One’s new credit card with Identity Alert service. Applications data are confidential, however the chart shows that there was a continuing halo effect on application rates following the campaign.
  • Online – and particularly online newspapers, with their trusted specialist content and opinion in the finance category – is a common first step in seeking more information on finance products. Print newspapers are also ideal for driving online traffic – it’s easy to keep the web address handy and they usually prompt a more immediate response than TV. Sophus3 analysis of Capital One web traffic showed that the TV and newspaper campaign drove a 61% overall increase to the homepage. Newspaper ads carried unique URLs which took people straight to the Security landing page for more details of the Identity Theft product. Traffic to this landing page increased by 157% during the effectiveness campaign. Google Trends also noted clear peaks in search volume for Identity Theft coincidental with Capital One activity and reflecting current interest.*For further explanation of Sophus3 or Millward Brown methodology go to www.nmauk.co.uk
  • As a direct provider, without high street outlets, it is vital for Capital One’s advertising to generate saliency, understanding and trust. All media increased spontaneous awareness, leading to an uplift of 6% points among the total target. The strongest impact on brand familiarity was delivered by TV plus both formats of newspaper advertising – up 5% points compared with a small decrease of 2% points for TV solus. Shifts in familiarity were particularly marked among those claiming they don’t tend to take much notice of credit card advertising, suggesting that breaking through finance category advertising ‘norms’ paid off.
  • Brand commitment remained stable across the credit card category. Commitment to apply for new financial products is typically low level, and difficult to shift. However, amongst people with relatively high involvement in the credit card market there was a 2% point increase in brand commitment for Capital One.The campaign pushed Capital One higher up the consideration chain, as is demonstrated by the two ad response measures in the chart.
  • People have a strong emotional relationship with their newspaper, and both tracking and neuroscience have consistently shown that newspaper ads are more powerful than TV at delivering an emotional brand response.* Emotional affinity with Capital One was increased by 7% points among those exposed to print and online newspapers as well as TV. Whereas the TV solus group was less involved overall and only increased involvement by 3% points.
  • Millward Brown’s Brand Dynamics equity analysis, conducted at post-stage, also shows that the multi-media audience is more highly bonded with Capital One than TV solusrecognisers. Bonding correlates with market share. Therefore future scheduling of newspapers and online newspapers alongside TV can ensure that advertising addresses the most brand-positive target.
  • A key effect of adding newspapers is to make strong TV ads even stronger. This affects cut-through, memorability and motivational power, therefore making TV spend more efficient. For Capital One, branding of the TV ad when seen solus was around norm and enjoyment was high. Adding print and online newspapers significantly strengthened both branding and enjoyment.
  • Capital One TV advertising was considered involving, distinctive and interesting by those who only saw the TV. However, those who also saw newspaper ads found the TV ad even more actively engaging.
  • Response to the Capital One TV when seen solus was already very positive. The addition of newspapers – both print and online – significantly improved perceptions, appeal and motivating power of the TV ad.
  • Seeing newspaper ads added strength and depth to TV ad communication, particularly the reason to believe - people seeing the full campaign were twice as likely to think the TV communicated the credit rating alert service strongly.
  • The newspaper ads themselves communicated strongly, and in depth. The use of multiple executions is proven to deepen and broaden understanding, compared to repetition of a single ad.
  • Newspaper editorial – in both print and online formats – are an important source of advice for people considering financial products. This relevant context, where people are actively engaged, helps to enhance responses to ads.Emotional identification was 74% higher among people seeing all campaign elements versus those seeing TV alone.
  • The TV was considered informative in its own right, but print and online newspapers added to the depth of information conveyed.
  • Newspapers provide a context of both topicality and expertise, which helps stimulate re-appraisal for advertised brands. Capital One’s unique and timely Identity Theft Assistance, and the highly distinctive creative idea, ensured that re-appraisal was high among people seeing the TV ad on its own. Adding multiple print and online newspaper executions built re-appraisal by a further 26% points.
  • Newspapers – both print and online – provide a sense of immediacy that drives people onto the next stage in the process. Adding multiple newspaper executions to the Capital One campaign resulted in call to action more than doubling compared with TV solus.
