In our ninth year of Christmas TV ad research, we have continued to delve into the secrets of crafting unforgettable Christmas ads while uncovering the factors that drive ad effectiveness and positive long-term brand growth.
We asked 3,750 UK consumers to share their thoughts on festive ads a veritable feast of opinions on holiday cheer and advertising flair. We compared their insights to the world's largest advertising database, a treasured collection of advertising wisdom. The goal? To uncover the secret ingredients that make Christmas ads truly shine: impact, enjoyment, and differentiation. Think of it as a festive quest to discover the magic formula for creating ads that capture the hearts and minds of the nation during the golden quarter.
This year, we've harnessed the power of LINK+ and BrandDynamics on Kantar Marketplace to put 2023’s Christmas ads to the test, building the industry’s most comprehensive view of creative, brand and campaign effectiveness.
