Join us today, 16 November, to watch a live stream from Thinkbox, which will explore an evidence-based look at the business impact of advertising.

Amid mounting uncertainty about where best to invest in advertising after a chaotic year, Thinkbox is unveiling a new study by Ebiquity and Gain Theory: Profit Ability: the business case for advertising.

The research study takes an evidence-based look at the business impact of advertising. It looks at econometric data from 2,000 ad campaigns and, crucially, it examines the impact on profit in both the short- and long-term. It moves beyond often misleading and misused ROI ratios to show the volume of profit that different forms of advertising generate – so not just TV advertising.

Discussing the findings will be a panel of effectiveness experts chewing it over: Peter Field, consultant; Lorna Hawtin, disruption director, TBWA\Manchester; Natalie Cummins, managing director, Zenith; Mark Evans, marketing director, Direct Line. It will be chaired by Thinkbox's chair Tess Alps.
