Exclusive insights: Skippable ads on Snapchat deliver higher active attention levels than repurposed non-skippable content, according to a new global attention study from OMD Worldwide, Snapchat, and Amplified Intelligence.
The study used Amplified Intelligence eye-tracking technology to track the attention levels of 2,962 participants across five countries. Each served 8,900 ads for products in eight verticals between June to August 2022.
It found a strong correlation between the performance of ads that are built for the Snapchat platform vs. repurposed content.
