Creative Report Card Case Study

When was the last time you were able to experience KPIs that accurately show how impactful and engaging your creative is for your audience? BLACK has developed proprietary methodology, utilizing BLACK’s facial recognition and eye hover data from cameras mounted on our displays, to accurately show clients how effective their ads are with the Billy Bishop audience.

Once collected, BLACK translates the data into a CRC or Creative Report Card, along with a best practices comparison and creative feedback—the goal being to optimize your campaign performance and get a better view of your brand’s engagement.

Take a look at this example—a case study with our client, NEO Exchange, who after receiving the CRC Report, re-briefed the agency to adjust the creative direction.
