Advertising is a high-risk game. Done well, ads break through the noise, spark conversations about your brand, drive demand, and boost sales. Done poorly, ads bury your messages, damage your brand image, fail to generate revenue, and waste budget on expensive campaigns that fail to deliver.
With so much on the line, getting your ads right is crucial. How do you ensure success? Ad testing.
As the name implies, ad testing is validating your ad with your target audience prior to launch. You can test individual portions of your ad, like messaging, headlines, visuals or calls to action, or even initial reactions to early ad concepts.
Ad testing gives you the following benefits:
• Predict the effect on purchase intent
• Make informed go or no-go decisions on a specific ad launch
• Understand how your brand is perceived
• Get the highest ROI from your ad spend
Ad testing is one of the best ways to protect your advertising budget and maximize the chances of landing the right messaging with you

The concept and practice of stress testing has been around for many years. While traditional stress testing methodologies are still valid for firmwide scenario analysis and stress testing, special techniques and attentions are needed to successfully achieve the goal of firmwide capital adequacy in forwardlooking stress scenarios. During the 2007 financial crisis, many financial institutions were not sufficiently prepared for the ensuing liquidity crunch and capital drains. Perhaps if banks had worked through different economic scenarios prior to the crisis, they would have been in a better position to weather the storm. Inadequate preparation for crisis can lead to systemic risk and severe economic and political turmoil.
