  37. 37. AdTraction methodology
  38. 38. MethodologyAdTraction methodology AdTraction is a methodology developed by Cimigo to assess the performance of TVCs (TV commercials) on a set of standard metrics. AdTraction is based on the idea of benchmarking: instead of only looking at your TVC in isolation, AdTraction compares how each TVC performs against a benchmark. Usually, the benchmark is defined as all TVCs that have been tested so far with the AdTraction methodology. Respondents for AdTraction surveys are recruited online, either from Vietnamese websites or from Cimigo panel databases. Respondents fill in an online survey where they provide their demographic profile, watch a TVC and then complete a questionnaire about the TVC. Each TVC is filtered according to its target group. The survey is only conducted in Vietnamese.AdTraction database At the date of this report (April 2011), Cimigo has tested 216 TVCs aired in Vietnam after May 2009 using the AdTraction methodology.

AdTraction scores show the difference between one specific TVC and all TVCs that constitute the AdTraction benchmark. A positive AdTraction score means that this specific TVC was rated above the benchmark, a negative score means that the TVC was rated below the benchmark. An AdTraction score of +5 means that this TVC was rated 0.5 points higher than the benchmark on the original 1-10 polarity profile rating scale. Most AdTraction scores lie between -10 and +10, however they can also be higher or lower (up to 25 in extreme cases). AdTraction scores higher than 3 or lower than -3 are usually statistically significant at the 95% confidence level. AdTraction scores give you an indication about the position of a TVC within the AdTraction database. Use the following indicative table to find out how your TVC is ranked: AdTraction Score Approximate interpretation +7 or higher TVC is within top 10% of all tested TVCs +3 or higher TVC is within top 30% of all tested TVCs -2 to +2 TVC is in the middle range -3 or lower TVC is within bottom 30% of all tested TVCs -7 or lower TVC is within bottom 10% of all tested TVCs 39
