Marketer inclusion of connected television into their media mixes is a curious tale. Gone are the days when campaigns can afford to waste countless impressions on the wrong audiences. Strained by an ever-increasing demand to drive measurable results for the businesses they represent, most marketers have flocked to highly targeted and measurable channels.
Marketers deserve better. This is a guiding principle that has driven AUDIENCEX over the years, and it was the motivation behind an exclusive partnership we announced earlier this morning.
Every day, brands and agencies alike are looking for intelligent, intuitive, and impactful ways to engage their audiences. However, the mid-market is often underserved, lacking either the access to enterprise-class tools enjoyed by the Fortune 500 or the strategic guidance and support needed to succeed in an increasingly competitive landscape.
Historically, retail marketing has been viewed in two parts: online and in-store. However, the user journey is far more nuanced than this, as shopping has evolved into a true omnichannel experience. Now, marketers are scrambling to keep up.
When examining the customer journey, it is clear that cross device targeting is essential for any effective campaign. Indeed, a majority of senior marketers surveyed by the IAB earlier this year confirmed that cross-device audience recognition is an area that is getting considerable attention in 2018.
However, the targeting of those devices remains an area where advertisers are still seeking better solutions. In this pursuit, many advertisers are turning to a blended tactic, targeting both households and the consumers within.
As a seasoned marketer, by now you’re well aware of the value of relevant audiences. When it comes to quantifiable results, nothing is more important than putting the right offer in front of the right eyeballs. How do you know the audiences you’re targeting are indeed relevant?
In the realm of digital marketing, 2017 was nothing if not dramatic.
We saw programmatic become increasingly dominant. We saw newer innovations, such as Dynamic Creative Optimization and Programmatic Native, shake up the scene. We banded together to fight back, on behalf of our clients, against bot fraud and threats to brand safety. And we significantly expanded our partnership with Sizmek to help our clients stay strong, nimble, and competitive in a landscape defined by constant change.
