    As generally understood by enlightened media planners, buyers and researchers, without confirmation of exquisitetly measured target audience contact or eyes-on/ears-on metrics (e.g. TVision) at a mimimumm and preferably actual attention measures for that same target audience, there can be no outcomes or ROI generated however brilliant the creative message.  Perhaps in the digital and programmatic age, we especially need to be reminded that, delivery is not necessarily receipt.  Reciept is not necessarily Eyes-On/Ears-on.

    When advertisers better understand these basic media metrics requirement for all media, the leverage of their media budget on their creative executions and the latter's power to drive brand outcomes will increase significantly.   As the great Roger Baron, FCB, once opined on the value of generating actual audience engagement , "It's the creative, stupid!"
