Insights & Optimizations: reporting and insights available directly within DCO vendor UI.

While brand impact is essential, the key to our Integrated Ads is the seamless incorporation into shows with minimal intrusion. To evaluate DCO’s ability to do just that, TripleLift conducted a series of closed-environment tests to measure Dynamic Overlays' impact on the content they serve.


Dynamic Overlays were incorporated into two shows of different genres with a mix of branding to control for favorability bias. Viewers watched an episode, answered brand-related questions, and expressed their sentiments toward this new ad format.


The results of these tests were very encouraging and indicate that DCO has a strong potential as a format in a rapidly evolving digital landscape. According to the participants, integrations were eye-catching without removing the content in which they were viewed. Dynamic Overlays were thoughtfully placed during moments of lower action when a viewer is more likely to accept additional messaging, improving brand metrics such as purchase intent and favorability. With five of seven viewers claiming the integrations were not distracting and an increase in purchase intent to 66%, it is clear that DCO should be a major consideration for advertisers moving forward.
