How INFO•CHECK works
Beta prints and delivers low denomination checks to its client. The client inserts the checks in selected product packages.
Questions are printed on the check stub and the answers are recorded on the back of the check. Approximately 15 questions can be accommodated. After the checks are completed and deposited, they are returned to Beta Research for tabulation and processing.

To demonstrate high advertising page exposure, a check is affixed to an ad page in test copies of the magazine or newspaper, mailed to that publication’s recipients. A canceled check is proof that the recipient is exposed to the particular page in the issue.
APX studies are executed as independent projects by Beta Research, whose staff observes and supervises each operation.
APX scores are compared to normative data.
