According to Research.com Marketers are measuring the emotional engagement of consumers to better market their products.
How are they doing this ?
They add up the positive and negative words used by consumers in response to a particular ad. Each ad is given a score to aid advertisers in how well a particular ad engages emotionally with its intended audience.
“We are dedicated to developing new and better metrics that allow brands to effectively measure the ad creative as it relates to their specific objectives. For some campaigns the objective is rational, for others – emotional,” said Peter Daboll, Ace Metrix CEO.
