Target the Right Customers with Connected TV Advertising in Harlingen

It can be hard to keep up with changes in the advertising industry, but Quantifi Digital can help you stay up to date through Connected TV advertising in Harlingen. Less than 85 million households in the United States are still paying for traditional cable, but they're not abandoning television completely. Instead, they're consuming Over-the-Top (OTT) media that's streamed to various devices, like mobile phones and computers. When this content is delivered through a television, it's referred to as Connected TV (CTV). Once viewed as a trend, OTT television is now growing by approximately 40 percent every year.

What is Connected TV advertising?

There are nearly 200 million CTV users in the United States, and that number is expected to grow over the next few years. On top of that, there are more than 80 million Americans who're either cord cutters or cord nevers, meaning they've canceled their traditional subscription or never owned one in the first place. With CTV advertising in Harlingen, you can place advertisements in front of these subscribers while they're consuming CTV and OTT media. What's more, CTV advertising lets you target these demographics through an engaging streaming advertising campaign that speaks to them directly.

What's great about CTV ads is that they're non-skippable, which means you can enjoy 100 percent in-view rates and nearly perfect completion rates. Since the bulk of OTT content is video on demand, viewers aren't shown as many ads as they are with traditional TV, which can make it easier for them to remember your OTT advertisement.

How does OTT advertising work?

When compared to traditional TV, approximately 80 percent of cord cutters consume as much or more content after making the switch to OTT media. Traditional TV companies have lost as much as 1.75 million subscribers in a single quarter to streaming services, which is why digital advertising agencies in Harlingen are allocating more money to OTT advertising.

What are the benefits of using Connected TV advertising in Harlingen?

CTV programmatic ad spending is expected to account for 15 percent of all programmatic video spending. Companies across the US are devoting more money and resources to CTV advertising so they can engage with viewers who don't subscribe to traditional television. Along with helping you connect with this segment of the market, Connected TV advertising offers other benefits like:

  • Retargeting: Stay on your viewers' minds by bringing your advertisements to other platforms. Retargeting lets you send follow-up ads to viewers who completed your initial commercial, so they're more likely to think about your product or service.
  • Audience tracking: Make sure your CTV ads reach the segments of the market you're interested in. With the help of first- and third-party data, you can deliver your advertisement to people who're more likely to engage with your commercials.
  • Geographic targeting: This feature lets you narrow the focus of your campaign to a specific state, metropolitan area, or ZIP code. That way, you're able to deliver laser-focused commercials to people in specific areas.
  • Reporting: Monitor the progress of your advertising campaign by viewing important metrics like daypart, completion rate, and unique reach, then tweaking your campaign to make it more effective.
