Description of the method

Ad recall surveys evaluate what people remember after seeing an advertisement. They should be sent after an audience has been exposed to an advertisement to evaluate the effectiveness (typically within 2 days). Ad recall surveys are generally used in conjunction with data analytics to build a deep understanding of the advert performance. They are also often used where data analytics are indicating an issue with the advertisement and you need to find out what is causing the problem.
