Tapad Introduces New Cross-Device Optimization Metric, Viewable Exposure Time (VET)

Today Tapad proudly announces a new metric for cross-device marketers, Viewable Exposure Time (VET). Viewable Exposure Time measures across screens and ad formats, identifying the optimal amount of time a consumer spends with an ad before they take action.

Frequency caps are currently used to ensure that dollars aren’t wasted on redundant ads. Viewable Exposure Time evolves the frequency capping approach to include accelerating a consumer’s ad exposure rate up to the optimal time spent with the brand. VET is used in affinity, digital transaction and offline purchase models as a key indicator of marketing budget well-spent. Beta users of VET span every vertical, though interest is especially high from CPG, Automotive, Telecommunications and Retail.

Viewable Exposure Time unifies and upgrades marketers’ predictors of advertising success by leveraging cross-screen engagement across digital and television, with vendor-agnostic viewability scores for video, rich media and display. 

More than just a measurement tool, Tapad also provides clients with VET activation. Factoring in time spent with ads in viewable seconds and minutes, these analytics inform marketers about which audiences are underexposed, enabling them to adjust campaigns and deliver according to optimal viewable exposure time. This effectively increases conversion rates at the lowest cost.
