MEDIA RELEASE: Sydney, Australia – October 3 , 2023 – Advertisers will for the first time be able to measure the attention across their programmatic advertising buy following a major new partnership between Yahoo and Amplified Intelligence.
The market-first partnership will see Amplified Intelligence’s attentionPROVE® measurement solution become available to advertisers using Yahoo DSP in Australia, allowing them to measure the effectiveness of their attention planning within their programmatic buying.
Andrew Gilbert, Director of Platforms AUSEA at Yahoo, says: “Attention has rapidly become a vital component of the media planning ecosystem, and this partnership is a major milestone in advancing its use. All of the major holding groups in Australia use Amplified Intelligence’s data as part of their planning process. Adding programmatic measurement creates a significant opportunity for them to move past just high level planning and get deeper insights into their programmatic investment across desktop, mobile, tablet, and Connected TV.”
Amplified Intelligence, an Australian owned and operated company, is the global pioneer in attention measurement. Its attentionPROVE® solution enables agencies and brands to leverage active and passive human attention seconds to optimise impact, performance and cost effectiveness in real-time. The solution is built of the largest real-human dataset globally, comprising over 100,000 individual people and 400 million+ data points.
This new partnership is expected to dramatically enhance the effectiveness of attention planning for advertisers using the Yahoo DSP.
Dr Karen Nelson-Field, Founder and CEO of Amplified Intelligence, says: “Attention is now widely accepted as a crucial part of any media buy and this integration is going to be a huge boost for our partners. Now brands can get real-time human attention insights from their campaigns which in turn will help them optimise for better outcomes. Yahoo’s expertise in programmatic will help Amplified Intelligence’s partners to track attention effectively, which is very exciting for us.”
