Forge a Lasting Connection with Your Audience with CTV Advertising in Raleigh

Quantifi Digital can set you up with the best ways to advertise online in Raleigh. Experts believe that the number of people watching OTT content will increase to nearly 200,000,000 people in 2020. As TV viewers turn to Over-The-Top content providers like Hulu and CBS All-Access, traditional TV commercials no longer have the efficacy they once enjoyed. Thankfully, OTT advertising in Raleigh is a more-than-viable alternative for marketers looking to make a good impression on their audience. Please continue reading to learn more about how the experts at Quantifi Digital can help you connect with your demographic.

What is CTV?

If you're watching television without the aid of a set-top box, satellite dish, or comparable equipment, you are said to be watching Connected TV, often abbreviated as CTV. Viewers love CTV because it gives them much more freedom to watch video content on their terms. Some of our competitors aren't as fond of it because no individual CTV platform enjoys the viewership numbers traditional cable did in its prime, dramatically altering the marketing landscape.

At Quantifi Digital, we see the new advertising paradigm as an opportunity. While CTV ads may not reach the raw number of eyeballs cable can, we can serve ads directly to your target demographic to improve the efficiency of your ad spend. For example, a product aimed at women between the ages of 25-35 can be served exclusively to that audience.

OTT ads are also unskippable, so we regularly see in-view ad rates of 100 percent while traditional commercials are being fast-forwarded in record numbers. Ad breaks are also shorter on CTV than on traditional cable, discouraging viewers from doing something else out of fear of missing their program.

How much does it cost to advertise on TV in Raleigh?

If you're thinking that Connected TV advertising in Raleigh is unlikely to fit into your budget, think again. Quantifi Digital offers a diverse array of packages with a variety of price points to help as many companies as possible advertise more efficiently. For instance, we don't have any monthly minimums to make it easier to advertise on Hulu. We also work exclusively on the buy-side of our industry, allowing us to deliver more value to clients than competitors who place ads on their own CTV networks.

Raleigh is a growing city with over a million households that offers plenty of opportunities for advertisers to get their message heard. Whether your audience is streaming the Carolina Hurricanes, watching documentaries in preparation for a trip to the North Carolina Museum of Art, getting news updates before a performance at the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts, or simply relaxing on the couch, we can help you place ads in front of the right people.
