Session 3: The Five Reasons Why Now is the Time to Advertise (on Multiscreen TV)

Thu, Nov 12, 2020 12:00 PM - 12:20 PM EDT 

With the economic uncertainty brought on by the pandemic, many advertisers are asking “Should I continue to advertise? Should I continue to advertise on TV” and, importantly, “How do I prove the ROI to my CFO and other stakeholders?”  What we’ll cover:

  • The importance of “brand.” Why it’s important to build connections and stay top of mind with consumers.
  • When it comes to advertising options, why video has the advantage that builds brands and drives action.
  • Why advertising during a downturn can be a catalyst for growth. Clear data that shows that brands that advertise during a downturn reap both short- and long-term benefits.
  • The heightened appetite for content driving increased trial of AVOD platforms.
  • See the clear correlation of TV spend to impact (website traffic, sales, revenue). Over the last 6 years, we’ve done 17 attribution analyses looking at hundreds of brands and we can prove that TV works.
