Forge a Connection with Your Audience Through Local TV Advertising in Des Moines

If you're looking for the best way to advertise online, Quantifi Digital can help you reach a customer base in Des Moines. If you're familiar with the phrase "cord-cutting," you already know that TV viewers are turning to OTT (or Over-The-Top) content providers instead of paying for pricey cable subscriptions. Life was simpler for marketers when everybody watched the same platform, but the new paradigm offers a tremendous opportunity for anybody willing to take advantage of it. Please keep reading to learn more about how we can help you do so.

What is Connected TV?

There are a variety of devices that are capable of accessing OTT content. The list below highlights some of the most popular ones:

  • Smart TVs including brand names such as:
    • LG
    • Samsung
    • Hisense
  • Gaming consoles including:
    • Nintendo Switch
    • Sony PS4
    • Microsoft Xbox One
  • Streaming players like:
    • Amazon Fire TV
    • Apple TV
    • Roku TV
  • Tablets, smartphones, and additional devices

That said, many viewers prefer to access OTT content on a traditional television screen. This is called Connected TV in the industry, or CTV for short. CTV offers numerous advantages for consumers, including greater flexibility and a more affordable price point. It can also make a marketer's job easier, though some digital advertising agencies in Des Moines are struggling to adapt to the new structure.

Have you ever left your seat during a commercial break? If yes, you know that doing so means that the companies behind any TV spots you missed essentially wasted their money. CTV ad breaks are shorter than those on traditional television, discouraging viewers from doing something else. OTT ads are also unskippable, so you don't have to worry about viewers reaching for the fast-forward button either.

How does OTT advertising in Des Moines work?

Streaming video content only requires two things: a stable internet connection and a compatible device. Studies suggest that more than half of all American households meet both criteria, so the OTT space is poised to get even more popular in the future. Of course, there are many different services in the OTT arena. Here is some more information on three of the most popular:

  • Hulu: Hulu provides a blend of on-demand and live content, including exclusive access to current-season TV shows from America's biggest networks and original programming. High monthly minimums can make it difficult to advertise on Hulu, but Quantifi Digital can access the platform's 28 million subscribers without such restrictions.
  • Tubi TV: Tubi is a free service that 20 million monthly active users watch TV programs and movies on monthly. New content is added on a monthly basis, so viewers always have an incentive to come back.
  • Sony Crackle: Crackle provides free, on-demand access to award-winning TV shows, movies, and original programming on a variety of devices. Ads on Crackle can reach up to 10 million users.

What are a few of the benefits associated with local TV advertising in Des Moines?

While TV spots are sold to a largely unknown audience, we can serve ads directly to consumers of the age, sex, and household income that you hope to reach. Similarly, digital ads can target a specific ZIP code or the entire state of Iowa depending on the size of your business. We also offer retargeting capabilities, meaning that we can serve online follow-ups to consumers who watched one of your ads to completion. Digital ads may not have the raw viewership numbers of traditional cable, but they promote more efficiency with your ad spend.

We also offer a live reporting dashboard that provides real-time access to important information about your campaign, including dayparts, network delivery rates, and overall reach. Armed with this knowledge, you can adjust your ads as necessary to work toward your goals. Sadly, the only "analytics" you can get with traditional TV spots is when they aired.
