Ad Recall – Volume Brands
Source: Roy Morgan Single Source (Australia) March 2009 –February 2010 n=5,688 & March 2011 – February 2012 n=6,043 (New car intenders next 4 years). *Ad Recall = “Which makes have you seen or heard advertised recently?” **Change from 2010.
Norman Morris, Industry Communications Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“With so many automotive brands available to choose from, multiple new or face lifted models hitting the market each month and budgets tightening – memorable, targeted communication is increasingly vital. When linked with a brands media spend, this advertising recall figure can be used to give an indication of the advertising effectiveness of each brands campaigns. If a brand is spending millions of dollars on media and creative, but unable to improve their ad recall figure amongst their target market, we can assume that the message is either having cut through issues, or is being ‘lost’ amongst the highly saturated advertising landscape.
“Brand leakage is an issue that many brands face when trying to create memorable ads. There is little or no point in spending dollars on creative and media, having the target market remember the ad, but associating the incorrect brand or model to the ad.
“Roy Morgan’s advertising recall metric is an effective top line indicator to alert brands to potential issues in creative message or media placement.”
