How can doordrop attention transform your advertising game?

Did you know that in today's world, digital advertising methods are facing significant challenges? With the rise of ad-blocking, rampant ad fraud, and the scattering of consumer attention across multiple devices, it's no wonder that human exposure to ads cannot be taken for granted anymore. 

But here's something fascinating: when it comes to advertising effectiveness, “doordrop attention” has proven to hold immense potential.  

In this blog article, we will explore the power of door drop media in capturing attention and maximising the impact of your advertising efforts. 

How much attention does an average door drop attract

Ever wondered what’s the average interaction time with doordrops? Well, you will be amazed to know that doordrops outshine digital ads and TV spots, with an average interaction time of 55 seconds. 


But here's the best part: They achieve this remarkable attention-grabbing feat at half the cost of digital channels such as TV.  With door drop marketing, you can be the best in class without straining your budget. You can captivate your ideal audience, drive conversions and acquire customers, while maximising your resources.

How do doordrop attention metrics measure up

A study conducted by JICMAIL gained valuable insights into the effectiveness of door drops. JICMail uncovered how much attention and engagement consumers gave to door drops. To achieve this, they used video analytics and automatic coding to measure the time spent interacting with the media within the home .

Interestingly, the difference between the self-reported and observed data for doordrops was incredibly small, just a mere 7-second difference. But it doesn't end there.  

It turns out these potent marketing tools even leave their mark on the digital landscape as well. They spark online searches for more information, leading to increased usage of tablets and smartphones, and driving visits to advertiser websites, thus increasing your digital attention spans with more relevant traffic. 


This clearly indicates that door drops have the power to receive lasting impression, making them a reliable and effective advertising medium. 

An attention efficient channel
