How Readex Ad Effectiveness Studies Work

All our studies measure ad effectiveness. To make things simple, Readex offers four standard studies for print ads and one study for online ads. But we’re no stranger to customizing studies to meet a publisher’s specific needs.

Although each standard study differs by a variety of factors: data collected, reports, price, etc., the method is similar.

4 Big Benefits

1. Bring new advertisers into your studied issue or onto your website.

2. Upgrade current advertisers by setting minimum frequencies, or size/color standards.

3. Reach out more: first to explain the study, then to deliver results.

4. Strengthen relationships with advertisers by offering sound, creative suggestions about the types of ads that seem to work in your market.
