NCS and Nielsen recently presented the most comprehensive analysis of what drives advertising effectiveness—creative, reach, targeting, recency and context—based on nearly 500 studies from 2016 and 2017 and over a decade of experience in linking advertising to sales results.


The report evaluates the sales contribution of these five key drivers—and how their roles have changed since the ambitious Project Apollo studies of 2006.  It also incorporates a separate study that examines the reach of TV & digital for nearly 900 cross-media campaigns.
