How to ensure you message is seen, understood, memorized?
Pre-testing your communication projects is ensuring the right creative choices are made, that they properly answer to objectives such as efficiency and Brand image you have set so your adverting messages generate the ROI that will justify your media and creative investments. That is what pre-testing is about!

The cognitive pre-test

Your ad must leave a powerful and useful trace in the mind of consumers, by activating key cognitive processes to ensure memorization and hope to generate a change in behavior.

Thanks to its unique approach, based on the knowledge acquired in Cognitive Sciences and its exclusive scientific program (outcome of 10 years of R&D), Impact Memoire assesses the quality of your ad’s memory trace through its ability to stimulate the key conscious and non-conscious processes of memorization. An approach without consumer interview.
