From attention metrics, third party cookies, first party data, last touch attribution to cross-media measurement; the relative merits and drawbacks of different methodologies is a hot topic.
But what is the most important way for advertisers to gauge effectiveness of a campaign?

“The battle to better define how we should measure real Human Attention accurately, to drive better brand and business outcomes, is upon us.

It’s critical to make sure the quality of your Attention data is up to scratch.”
