How It Works

Our Foot Traffic Impact Study precisely matches test and control groups based on real-world visits

1 Create test groups
We first establish a test group of ad-exposed individuals, or those who receive an ad on any of their devices (desktop or mobile).
2 Select matched control group
We select a closely matched control group from the advertised markets, applying stringent criteria that includes geography, demographics, and device activity.
3 Connect mobile devices with visits
Our cross-device technology connects desktop ad viewers with the mobile devices that visit in-store.
4 Measure incremental visitors
We then measure incremental visitors, or those who viewed an ad and visited the store above the baseline of expected visits.
