Introducing Singular’s New & Improved Creative Reporting

We’re excited to announce the release of Singular’s new and improved Creative Reporting, the most advanced creative analytics tool on the market.

We launched the first version of Creative Reporting two years ago and from the start the goal has been to give marketers the best possible tool for analyzing the performance of their ad creatives. Marketing teams shouldn’t have to manually piece together creative data from their ad sources. When you use Creative Reporting, you get easy access to deep performance metrics on all your creatives, across each of your ad channels, in one flexible view. Top marketers and designers at companies like Yelp, Postmates and Ibotta use the tool to make smarter and faster creative optimizations. And today, we’ve released a new version of Creative Reporting.

You should really play around with a demo to get a feel for the UI and to see how easy it is to plug in your sources and immediately get actionable insights on your image and video assets. But, briefly, the new parts are:

Flexible Queries

We’ve brought Creative Reporting up to parity with our main reporting module. Now you can analyze your key creative metrics against any dimension of data — including location, source and custom dimensions — and filter results on the fly to pinpoint top-performing creatives. Example use-cases include:

  • Filter by country to compare creative performance by location
  • Build custom dimensions based on campaign strategy to view performance of incentive vs. non-incentive copy in creatives
  • Compare performance of different video lengths (e.g., 15-second vs. 30-second) to see which lengths perform best in a given ad channel or ad channel type

Creative Clustering

In the previous version of Creative Reporting, Singular grouped exact copies of image and video creatives used in multiple campaigns. But in many cases, marketers and their ad partners introduce minor changes to creatives. These changes are both intentional (e.g., slight variations in color scheme or text) and unintentional (e.g., changes to the encoding of a creative due to resizing, compressions and arbitrary file changes).

Now, using advanced image recognition, Singular users can cluster creatives even if they’re not perfect matches. For example, a user can group an image creative that has an English call-to-action with the same image creative with a Spanish call-to-action. This allows the user to see the performance of creatives independent of the copy. More broadly, users can isolate the effect various creative elements have on performance and aggregate data for similar creatives to better understand the types of images or videos that resonate with their audiences.

Creative Tags

A request we kept hearing from users was to provide a way to measure creative performance by defined “themes.” So we’ve added the ability for marketers to “tag” their creatives with relevant keywords and run reports on these tags. Now, for instance, you can compare how “car-themed” images perform against “human-themed” images.

Expanded Coverage

Singular now integrates with over 85 different ad networks at the creative level. We are constantly working with our ad partners to enable our users to pass more creative data to unlock the most granular reporting possible.
