Magid presenting on ad effectiveness at The Media Insights & Engagement Conference

Magid’s Mike Bloxham and Warner Bros. Entertainment’s Theresa Pepe will present session on ad effectiveness

LOS ANGELES – January 7, 2019 – The Media Insights & Engagement Conference has announced its sponsors and agenda for this year’s conference to be held January 29-31, 2019 at The Omni Hotel, Los Angeles.

Magid is pleased to announce it will sponsor the annual conference and that its own Mike Bloxham, SVP, Global Media & Entertainment will present alongside Warner Bros. Entertainment’s Theresa Pepe, VP, Ad Sales & Innovations.

About the session
Getting emotional about ad effectiveness:
Why ads work harder in some shows than others

We watch what we watch because it moves us. Whether a show makes us laugh or cry, thrills us, shocks us, or simply makes us feel that all is well in the world, it must engage the emotions of its audience. After extended research, we can now quantify the extent to which the unique emotional environment created by every single show delivers measurably different results for advertisers and their specific creative executions. The same ad aired in different – even very similar – shows with similar audiences will deliver different results in terms of purchase intent, brand affinity and other measures of ad receptivity.

Warner Bros. will be actively leveraging emotional context and ad optimization as part of its Upfront proposition this year and its service model for advertisers going forward. Long-time conference advisory board members Theresa Pepe (Warner Bros.) and Mike Bloxham (Magid) team up to reveal what this kind of approach means for advertisers and media owners alike.
