Advertising Testing with Cubery Market Research
Performance Summary


The Cubery Rating is comprised of a number of dimensions which reflect the behavioural and psychological processes people go through when making a decision.


Cubery’s proprietary methodology uses 3 C’s to predict effectiveness: Captivate, Connect and Compel.



  • Cubery Rating
  • Captivating: Attraction, Interest, Likeability & Branding
  • Compelling: Feeling, Difference, Persuasion & Virality
Performance Summary | Innovation Testing
Attraction Diagnosis


Measure of whether the concept/idea will stand out and set itself apart from other brands. The more unique and distinctive the concept/idea is, the better chance it has of being noticed.



  • Unique / Distinctive
  • Annoying / Irritating
  • Nice / Pleasant
  • Dull / Boring
Attraction Diagnosis | Innovation Testing
Branding Diagnosis


Measure of how strongly the concept/idea leverages the established properties of the brand (or the parent brand/masterbrand). Distinctive Assets help to build familiarity, trust and credibility.



  • Fit
  • Cues
  • Uniqueness
Branding Diagnosis | Innovation Testing
Likes & Dislikes (Spontaneous)


An understanding of the aspects of the concept/idea that people were most positive and negative toward. This helps to diagnose what’s working and identify opportunities for improvement.



  • Likes
  • Dislikes
Likes & Dislikes | Innovation Testing
Associations (Spontaneous)


3 words people associate with the brand after seeing the concept/idea. This generally elicits an emotionally-charged response, complimenting the more rationally-geared nature of the prompted Impressions question.

Brand Associations | Innovation Testing
Impressions (Prompted)


Measure of how strongly the concept/idea conveys the intended impressions about the brand.



  • 5 x customised statements
Brand Impressions | Innovation Testing

Conveying information which taps into one – or preferably more – of these six levers, can help to motivate short-term behaviour.



  • New
  • Informative
  • Different
  • Believable
  • Relevant
  • Clarity
Rational Diagnosis | Innovation Testing
Emotion Diagnosis


The more a concept/idea makes people feel something the better chance it has of being noticed and the more likely it is to influence decision-making and behaviour. This question identifies the type and intensity of emotions elicited.



  • 20 emotions in total across positive/negative and high/low arousal continuums.
Emotion Diagnosis | Innovation Testing
Deep-dive (Spontaneous)


A qualitative deep-dive providing insights which can help to optimise performance.



  • Impressions: The impressions people were left with about the brand.
  • Standout: The most memorable and appealing elements of the concept/idea.
  • Feedback: Opportunities to improve the concept/idea or make it more appealing.
  • Assets: The branding properties (Distinctive Assets) which people recognised.
