Lumen will supply its LAMP tag on Teads’ campaigns, which will allow the global media platform’s clients to measure attention and to link this to outcomes such as performance metrics and brand and sales lift studies. Meanwhile, Lumen is also providing Teads with creative development tests to help its clients further when it comes to optimising the impact of their campaigns, says the company.

Mike Follett, Lumen’s managing director, explains: “We're really excited to extend our relationship with the Teads team. Teads and Lumen have been leading the debate around the Attention Economy, and it's great to see how initial research projects have turned into ground-breaking business tools.

“As a leader in attention measurement, offering both eye-tracking technology and campaign and planning integration tools, we help brands to make media choices across platforms in a soon-to-be cookieless world; one in which a wealth of communications have created a poverty of attention. Measuring attention has the power to reshape and turbocharge the way media, creative and data work together.”

Caroline Hugonenc, SVP research & insights at Teads, adds: “We know the differentiated impact attention has on campaign outcomes and we are proud to be stewarding the evolution of attention measurement with the launch of our attention programme. This represents a huge step forward for the industry, and we’ll continue to work with all our publisher, agency and advertiser partners to guide them on how to work with this new metric and align it to their business goals.”

By connecting Lumen’s attention data with its in-house brand lift solution, Brand Pulse, Teads will also be able to help clients further when it comes to driving media effectiveness and business results, says the company.

The program will be available in beta mode in July, and released later in 2022.
