Delivering results

In addition to our commitment to quality and effectiveness, another principle we take very seriously is accountability. Regardless of the size of your campaign, we can create a tracking program to help monitor and quantify the effectiveness of your advertising in ways other media measurement simply can’t match.

To help you spend and track your Digital advertising dollars more effectively, The Globe is now the first Canadian publisher to offer Moat Analytics across our online properties.



Traditionally, campaign success hinges on simple measures, such as impressions and clicks. MOAT Analytics provides 25 additional measurements into the effectiveness of your creative, including In-View Rate, In-View Time, Attention Quality, Time to Touch. Importantly, MOAT allows optimization of brand tactics and creative by clearly highlighting what’s working and what’s not, allowing you to make refinements during your campaign.

We’ve seen some amazing insights. Ads running on Globe sites receive an average of 37.4 seconds of in-view time. That’s 19 seconds more than MOAT’s benchmark average. In fact, yesterday across, ads were viewed for a cumulative time of 1,292 hours. That’s equivalent to delivering over 155,000 30-second TV spots in one day.
MOAT Analytics are included as part of sponsorship campaigns across our sites and Alliance properties – including Forbes, Reuters, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and ABC News.
