Ormax Media to measure effectiveness of cricket advertising

MUMBAI: In the lead-up to the two big cricketing events, World Cup 2011 and IPL 4, media research and consulting firm Ormax Media has launched its cricket advertising effectiveness research - Day After Cricket (DAC).

DAC is a syndicated cricket advertising effectiveness research, conducted across nine cities, with a sample size of over 15,000 respondents. The research includes two phases – “day-after” tracking during the events and “post-event ad effectiveness research”. 
Ormax Media co-founder and director Vispy Doctor said: “Cricket advertising is very cluttered, with more than 100 brands vying for limited consumer attention spans. With huge investments at stake, it becomes important for an advertiser to know if their brand has managed to make an impact, and whether this impact is short-term or long-standing. DAC allows an advertiser to understand if their campaign has delivered on the marketing objectives.”

DAC will take a brand’s performance on various parameters, including ad recall, ad likeability, innovations recall and a series of brand attributes defined as a part of research. 
Over 60 brands will be tracked during each of the two events. Data will be reported every alternate day, making the findings directly actionable during the two long events. Subscribers will also get access to post-event analysis, which can be used as inputs into planning for future cricket events.

Ormax Media co-founder and CEO Shailesh Kapoor added: “DAC aims to be the definitive cricket advertising research product in India. It handles every aspect of cricket advertising, including sponsorships and innovations. Very importantly, it isolates the impact of non-cricket advertising, allowing a brand to measure the specific benefits gained from cricket investments. Its model has been tested over several cricket events, including last year’s IPL and the current India-South Africa series. The large scale research aims to be the industry currency on cricket ad effectiveness this year, and the future.” 
The study will be available for subscription to advertisers, media planners and broadcasters.
