New insights into Digital Ad Effectiveness from Kantar Millward Brown and the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.

The project comprises of two parts. Firstly, an analysis of Kantar Millward Brown MarketNorms data and secondly, an analysis of Kantar Millward Brown Facebook/ Instagram Norms.
