Campaign Online Briefing – TV 2021: Changing Channels

Campaign’s TV 2021 Online Briefing takes on a giant: television advertising. Until the advent of digital it formed the undisputed elder statesman of regional marketing communications. Now smart thinking and new technologies have taught this old medium some fresh tricks. At the free-to-attend virtual event, two panels of experts analyse the growth from yesterday’s to today’s best practices in television advertising, and chart that trajectory into the future.

2:00 – 2:45 pm – Panel 1: Getting results

Remember aerials? Remember cable? Satellite dishes? DVDs and VHS and Betamax? Today you are as likely to watch television using an OTT (over-the-top) or VOD (video on demand) service as through traditional ‘linear’ transmissions. And ‘TV’ can mean your laptop or mobile phone as often as the traditional black box in your living room.

This splintering of the viewing experience leads to new challenges when it comes to grabbing viewer attention and shifting consumer behaviours. But it also presents fresh opportunities, as there has never been so much data available about people’s viewing habits.

Our first panel looks at how an integrated approach to media planning based on solid measurement and data analytics can expand the role of TV beyond awareness campaigns, to have direct and measurable results on consumer purchase behaviour.
