CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree, the nation's leading online source for competitive home loan offers, today announced that an ad from its new campaign received third place in the Ace Metrix Most Effective Ads List for Q2, 2013.
The ad, titled "Boxers", outperformed competitors in the mortgage category by over 22%. The Ace Metrix qualification methodology is based on an ad's ability to distinguish itself from its peer set. The mortgage category is generally difficult to score well in due to lower incidence rates but the new LendingTree ad outperformed competition and scored well in the likeability, watchability and attention categories.
"This is a tremendous accomplishment for LendingTree," said Fred Saunders, SVP, Marketing at LendingTree. "The mortgage category has a history of very low-involvement from consumers, and just breaking through can be difficult. Having high engagement and effectiveness with our advertising is great to see. Given our spend levels relative to the others on this list, it's a testament to the power of a good idea."To read more about the most effective ads of Q2, please visit: http://www.acemetrix.com/spotlights/events/top-ads-of-q2-2013/ To view LendingTree's ad campaign, visit the company's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/lendingtree About Ace MetrixAce Metrix® is the new standard in television and video analytics, dedicated to delivering better, faster, and more cost-effective solutions for evaluating video advertising within competitive context.
