Target Your Preferred Demographic with Connected TV Advertising in Johnstown

Quantifi Digital is the only name you need to know if you're interested in connecting with an audience in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. If you're familiar with the phrase "cord-cutting," you won't be surprised to learn that the number of pay-TV households in the United States is expected to drop by three percent in 2020. Many cord-cutters continue to watch TV through Over-The-Top (OTT) platforms such as Hulu or CBS All-Access, and we can help you place ads that resonate with this audience.

What is CTV?

OTT content can be accessed on a plethora of different devices, including the common ones below:

  • Streaming players such as:
    • Amazon Fire TV
    • Google Chromecast
  • Gaming consoles including:
    • The Nintendo Switch family of systems
    • Nintendo Wii U
  • Smart TV manufactured by companies like:
    • Sony
    • LG
    • Samsung
  • Smartphones, tablets, and other devices

That said, many viewers choose to access OTT content on a television screen. We call this Connected TV, or CTV for short. CTV is both cheaper and more flexible than a traditional TV subscription, so it's no surprise that CTV viewership is expected to increase by 20 percent this year.

CTV offers several advantages for advertisers looking to make the most of their marketing spend. Please fill in this form to learn more about local TV advertising in Johnstown.

What are some of the benefits associated with Connected TV advertising?

We can place OTT ads in front of an audience that's more likely to engage with them by leveraging demographic data such as household income, gender, and age. For instance, we can serve your ad exclusively to the 17 percent of CTV viewers between the ages of 45-54 if that's the market that makes sense for your product. In contrast, you won't really know who watches a traditional TV spot until it airs, potentially wasting your ad spend on a disinterested audience. Therefore, Connected TV advertising in Johnstown is a more efficient means of using your marketing budget.

Addressable TV advertising can also target the geographic area that makes the most sense for your campaign: individual ZIP codes, Designated Metropolitan Areas, or the entire state of Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, cable ads must be served to a DMA that may or may not suit your needs. Digital ads can also be interactive, encouraging viewers to actively engage with your product or service as opposed to passively listening to a TV commercial.

Video-on-demand ads are generally unskippable, leading to completion rates of 95 percent and up, while cable customers fast-forward every ad they can. We also offer retargeting capabilities, meaning that prospective customers who see one of your ads can be served online follow-ups to encourage them to make a purchase. Best of all, we can provide transparent reporting to help you make smart decisions regarding your OTT advertising in Johnstown. Sadly, there is much more guesswork when it comes to traditional TV ad buys.
