Reaching people when they are in a relevant mindset is the driving force behind advertising effectiveness, according to a new study by MAGNA Media Trials in partnership with GumGum. The new report, “Mindset Matters: Deconstructing Contextual Video,” found that ads that are delivered within contextually relevant environments are more positive for people, and work harder for brands. Contextual video targeting drives metrics for brands, with brand favorability up +4%, recommendation intent up +5%, and search intent up +6%. Further, contextual improves ad experiences for people with 10% feeling the ad was relevant to them and 6% finding the ad entertaining.

“While we’ve seen the power of contextual in our research, it was fascinating to finally identify the strongest driver of contextual performance – mindset,” said Kara Manatt, SVP, Intelligence Solutions, MAGNA. “Reaching the right people is always important, but reaching people at the right time, when they are in the right mindset for the message, strongly contributes to impact on brand KPIs, such as brand favorability and purchase intent.”

SPO strategies are on the rise – 95% of ad buyers will boost their SPO efforts by working with third parties – yet brands and agencies don’t see eye to eye on who should take responsibility for SPO and media quality, notes the report.
