Target Customers with Connected TV Advertising in Minneapolis

Consumers' television viewing habits are changing, and Quantifi Digital is here to help your Minneapolis business change with them. Over-the-Top (OTT) methods like Hulu, network apps, and websites have made it easier for viewers to ditch their traditional cable subscriptions. By 2021, over 81 million U.S. consumers will have cut the cord or never signed up for a cable subscription. When viewers use OTT methods to deliver content to a television, it's called Connected TV (CTV). Below, you'll learn more about how this kind of local TV advertising in Minneapolis can help your company get more out of its marketing budget.

What is CTV advertising in Minneapolis?

Minneapolis is an exciting city with plenty to do. In their free time, residents can visit Minnehaha Falls, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, or go check out a Timberwolves game. They don't want to have to wait in front of the TV for their favorite show to air live. CTV makes it possible for consumers to do the things that they love and still watch their favorite shows, movies, and sports. This change in the marketplace is also beneficial to your business. Other companies are taking notice. By the year 2023, CTV ad spending is expected to reach $14.12 billion annually.

CTV ads are non-skippable. This leads to a completion rate of over 90 percent and an in-view rate of 100 percent. Additionally, viewers are shown fewer ads, so they're more likely to remain in front of the television during a commercial break. You'll also get access to more data and analytics than you would from traditional TV spots. This enables you to target potential customers based on factors like age, income level, and even lifestyle factors like diet and activity level.

What are some of the benefits of Connected TV advertising?

CTV advertising in Minneapolis can provide your company with a number of benefits that aren't available through traditional TV. For example, CTV ads allow you geographically target customers down to the zip code level. Comparatively, TV spots must adhere to DMAs and cable zones.

Additionally, OTT ads provide you with data from top providers. You can use this data to make more informed decisions about who you target your product or service to. Taking advantage of this feature is an excellent way to drive more engagement to your business.

Addressable advertising also gives you more comprehensive reporting information. Traditional TV ads only tell you what time your spot ran. With CTV, you'll get detailed information on unique reach, daypart, device delivery, completion rate, and more. This provides your business with even more information that can be leveraged in your company's favor.

Traditional TV spots offer no direct way to retarget viewers who have already seen your ads. CTV does. You can use web-based display ads to keep your message at the top of your customers' minds. It's another example of how much your company can benefit from Connected TV advertising in Minneapolis.
