Getting Started

What is attentionPLAN™?

It is the world’s first attention media planning tool to use real human attention data across digital, social and television. It provides a universal measure fitting of the category, cross-platform comparison transparency and a relative quality layer of data to inform high quality media planning and campaign choices.

How do I sign up for a FREE Demo?

Head on over to our attentionPLAN page for more information and to register.

Can anyone use attentionPLAN™?

attentionPLAN was created for media planners and media strategists to add a quality layer of information that can account for performance differences between platforms. Basically, people who will use it most are in the media buying game.

Will it work on my phone/tablet/iPad?

attentionPLAN is built and tested exclusively for desktop computers and laptops at this stage. While you may have some success accessing the App from a tablet, this is not a device we can support at this time.

Will attentionPLAN™ run on any browser?

attentionPLAN has been designed to run on most modern internet browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge or Safari. It has not been built for Internet Explorer.

We strongly recommend your browser is completely up-to-date prior to your first attentionPLAN Login.

Can I integrate attentionPLAN™ into my own media planning tool?

Talk to us about API integration.

What happens at the end of my Demo?

You will receive a deck explaining this and more, straight after your personal onboarding.

Who sees the data I put in? Can I keep it confidential?

Data Collection + Privacy

How do you collect your attention data?

Each participant downloads our attentionTRACE Collection App onto their device. The App ensures the following process takes place (in chronological order):

(a) It exposes the right viewer to the right viewing session (ie. directs them to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TV channels or others). The participant logs in using their own login details (which we don’t scrape in case you’re wondering), so that the platform experience appears completely natural. The viewing session time is aligned with the typical experience on the platform, but importantly we consider impact by average second, to remove any biases.

(b) When the participant is experiencing the platform, the App activates the user-facing camera when an ad is displayed on their screen. This collects facial footage at five frames per second, which is then converted to attention data using one of our attention models.

(c) The App tags all ads the participant is exposed to. This is how we track the pixels of ads that are on screen, their duration on screen, the proportion of the screen that the ad covers as the viewer scrolls (we call this coverage), whether the sound is on or off and the volume level.

(d) Once the participant has finished their session, the App becomes redundant on their device.

(e) Television collection varies slightly from online platforms. A second phone is set up in the home (using hardware we send them) which streams content to their TV and provides a user-facing camera. Participants can freely get up and leave the room as they would normally in a natural TV experience. This technology includes Adaptive Bitrate Streaming (like Netflix) to ensure people with sub-optimal wi-fi can fulfil completion.

How do you track people’s gaze?

For mobile, our attentionTRACE Collection App uses the front-facing camera on the participant’s phone. For TV, we use the back-facing camera on an iPhone/iPod, which sits on a tripod under the participant’s TV. It’s worth noting that a minimum double opt-in process is used for all data collection participants. No footage is collected without express permission.

Does attentionPLAN™ use live data?

No, it’s not live. Because we are not a ratings business we don’t need to use live data. Our collection intervals suit the purposes of media planning. We collect often enough to capture platform format changes, which is an important component in attention to advertising.

How many countries have you collected data in?

So far, we have collected data in 10 countries: Australia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Canada, Mexico, France, UK, Ireland and US. attentionPLAN uses data from Germany, US, UK and Australia. 

Which platforms do you have data for?

We currently have data for TV, BVOD, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

How many individual ad views are we talking about here?

The data in attentionPLAN is currently supported by a sample of 211,420 ad views (at May 2022) from around 30,000 humans.

Are you GDPR compliant?

Yes we are, and we are also compliant with the Australian Privacy Principles contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth). We comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (GDPR) to the extent that we receive information regarding persons in the European Union about their behaviour as it occurs in the European Union. Basically, we respect people’s privacy and the law. We are grateful that there are people willing to participate in our research. We take custodianship of this data very seriously. We don’t sell your personal data to any other party.

Can research participants opt out of data collection if they feel uncomfortable?

Absolutely, they can. Research participants can (a) stop the viewing session, (b) delete the attentionTRACE Collection App, and (c) email us, so that we dispose of any data collected. We DO NOT scrape any personal platform login details.

Does attentionTRACE Collection App stay on people’s phones?

If collection participants forget to remove the App, it remains dormant. The App does not engage for any further activity after they have completed the final task in the collection process. In effect, the App becomes redundant. Through the App, we do ask participants to log in to various platforms (eg, Facebook & Instagram), but we DO NOT scrape any personal login details.

Could my data be sold?

No way! We just don’t do that. We respect our collection participants and do not onsell any of their data.
