NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 31, 2018–AdTheorent, Inc., a digital advertising leader using advanced machine learning technology and solutions to deliver impactful advertising campaigns for marketers, today announced campaign results from the Ad Council’s Type 2 Diabetes Prevention digital advertising campaign sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

AdTheorent used custom machine learning models and predictive targeting to drive consumers to complete the online prediabetes risk assessment.

The Situation:

More than one in three American adults has prediabetes and are at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a serious health condition that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Nearly 90 percent of people with prediabetes do not know they have it, and early detection is key because prediabetes can be reversed through weight loss, diet changes and increased physical activity.

The Approach:

The Type 2 Diabetes Prevention campaign is premised on the reality that no one is excused from the risk of prediabetes. The campaign features video PSAs – which run in donated time and space – that encourage people to find out if they have prediabetes, learn how it can be reversed, and take action to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes. The PSAs also featured a strong call-to-action guiding viewers to take an online prediabetes risk test.

The primary campaign target was adults, ages 40-60. To engage with this audience, AdTheorent developed custom machine learning models across mobile and desktop devices and used predictive targeting to reach consumers within that demographic with the highest likelihood of completing the online assessment. To track consumer actions after exposure to the brand campaign, AdTheorent placed pixels on the target website ( Using pixel data, predictive models optimized toward consumers most likely to take key actions on the brand site.

Campaign Results:

The campaign, which ran entirely on donated media support from AdTheorent, was successful both in terms of driving awareness and driving online assessment completes. The Video Completion Rate was 78%, surpassing the client’s benchmark by 160%.

The Cost-Per-Action (CPA) results were also outstanding:

The campaign ended with a CPA of $19.33, with the “action” being consumers who visited the Risk Test landing page.
The completion of the Diabetes quiz KPI yielded a CPA of $24, beating the client benchmark ($100) by 76%.

“Diabetes is such a prevalent health issue across America, and there is so much that can be done to prevent this disease, so it’s crucial to reach and educate consumers about the risk factors and changes they can make to stop diabetes in its tracks,” said Katherine Pastre, Senior Vice President, Media Strategy and Outreach of Ad Council. “We were absolutely thrilled with the results of this campaign – while awareness is essential, we’re also looking for Americans to learn their risk for prediabetes by taking the site’s risk assessment test. AdTheorent’s machine learning system helped us identify the viewers within our target audience who would be most likely to take the risk test.”
