DoubleVerify and Attain launch DV Authentic Attention


DV and Attain’s partnership proves the connection between attention data and real-time sales, enhancing measurement accuracy, campaign optimization, and sales growth.

DoubleVerify, a software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics, and Attain, a commerce data platform that powers sales transaction measurement and purchase-based data activation for brands, introduced an industry-leading innovation that enables brands to directly connect attention data to real-time sales, at scale. The joint innovation will empower global advertisers to optimize for attention in order to improve campaign performance and drive measurable business outcomes.

“In a digital landscape where attention correlates to campaign performance, connecting DV’s impression-level attention data with Attain’s real-time sales insights marks a significant innovation,” said Daniel Slotwiner, Senior Vice President of Attention at DoubleVerify. “Advertisers are not just looking for views; they are seeking tangible business outcomes. This partnership provides them with actionable insights to optimize campaigns in real-time, driving enhanced engagement and, ultimately, sales.”

DV Authentic Attention® is a privacy-friendly measurement solution – independent of third-party cookies – that provides advertisers with actionable MRC-accredited metrics. It analyzes more than 50 data points at the impression level, assessing the exposure of a digital ad and consumer engagement with a digital ad and device, in real time. For exposure, DV measures an ad’s entire presentation, quantifying its intensity and prominence through metrics that include viewable time, share of the screen, video presentation, audibility, and more. For engagement, DV examines key user-initiated events that occur during ad exposure, such as user touches, screen orientation, video playback, and audio control interactions. These measures of exposure and engagement contribute to the DV Attention Index – an overarching gauge of attention offering critical insights into campaign performance.

Attain’s platform analyzes over half a billion dollars of purchase data in real-time, daily. Its first-party, permission-based panel of over 6 million engaged users offers deep insights into how, what, when, and where consumers currently spend, and are expected to spend, their money – down to the product level.

“We are at the cusp of a new era in digital advertising analytics,” said Brian Mandelbaum, CEO of Attain. “The fusion of DV’s attention metrics and Attain’s real-time purchase data delivers unparalleled insights. Advertisers can now close the loop, connecting campaigns to real-time purchases and sales, ensuring not just reach and engagement, but measurable business impact.”

The partnership between DV and Attain promises to bridge the gap between ad attention and consumer purchasing behavior. Advertisers working with both companies will now have the unique advantage of connecting attention metrics with sales outcomes, enabling a more comprehensive understanding of the consumer’s path from ad exposure and engagement to purchase.
