You Innovate. TV Elevates.
VAB Multiscreen TV Advertising Campaign

We’re passionate about identifying growth brands, which is why for the last six years we’ve been tracking the TV investment of data-focused, performance-driven, digital-native direct-to-consumer brands. Our latest analysis of this growing category, Direct Outcomes: Analyzing The ‘Big Bets’ That DTC Brands Are Making On TV, again demonstrates how TV has been instrumental in driving consumer action for a robust set of DTC brands.


As a natural extension to this Insights work, VAB just launched our 2nd annual founders campaign, You Innovate. TV Elevates. with Touch of Modern and Peloton, two digitally-native profitable brands for whom television quickly became an integral component of the marketing mix. Hear the authentic voice of company founders John Foley of Peloton and Jerry Hum of Touch of Modern describe how TV was a catalyst to their skyrocketing growth.

“As a digitally-native brand, when we started with television it was just an experiment and it ended up being the biggest portion of our marketing spend. If I were advising another company, I’d tell them to test TV out, but as a competitor, I’d tell them not to.”

-Jerry Hum
