As we approach the start of 2022, it’s important for advertisers to focus on the massive opportunity that will exist in the programmatic space in the new year. One of the foremost of these is OTT/CTV advertising and the continuing shift from linear to CTV. OTT/CTV represents a quantum leap in targeting and attribution capability from linear; in essence, it combines the impact of traditional TV with the precision and scale of digital.
So, what does OTT/CTV advertising look like today and beyond? What is in store for advertisers in 2022, and how can Simpli.fi help marketers drive performance in the new year with advanced OTT/CTV offerings?
Today, we see people consuming streaming media across various devices more than ever before. The proof is in the compelling infographic below, and it is a clear indication to advertisers that reaching this audience should be a key component of their ad strategy in 2022.
The state of OTT/CTV advertising today and beyond is being driven by change in consumer behavior, and with Simpli.fi, advertisers can tap into our advanced solutions to drive performance across their ad campaigns resulting in higher ROI. Let’s take a look.
OTT/CTV Targeting at the Household-Level
Simpli.fi brings the most granular household-level targeting solution available in the form of Addressable Programmatic to OTT/CTV advertising. Addressable OTT/CTV with Simpli.fi is the most effective and impactful way to target tens of millions of CTV households. We use GPS and plat line data to target physical addresses so that only the right households and devices get targeted. This means significantly better ROI and less wasted impressions, since each household can be targeted individually and distinctly based on different factors.
And with Simpli.fi’s Addressable Audience Curation tool, advertisers can curate addressable audiences in real-time based on location data and over 700+ demographic variables that fit their ideal target market of viewers and serve them OTT/CTV ads on the big screen in the living room and/or across other small screen devices within the household. Similar to how linear advertisers rely on demographics for linear buys, advertisers can use Simpli.fi’s AAC to tap into this same information with OTT/CTV advertising and effectively target the same audience, all while reaching those that are no longer viewing traditional television.
Additionally, Simpli.fi’s advertisers have access to our massive reach and can successfully reach 90% of all AVOD homes in the U.S., allowing you to build and execute campaigns using a single source for any market. Add to that the ability to target each household with ease via all 210 designated TV markets/sub-markets across the U.S. regardless of the local MVPD. Say goodbye to having to work with multiple suppliers to find the designated TV market scale and targeting that you require. Simpli.fi’s OTT/CTV targeting has the reach and execution that you need to be successful in your ad campaigns.
What’s more, since we can target your audience all the way down to the household-level, we guarantee in-market delivery. Gone are the days where advertising dollars are wasted by being served in the wrong DMA. With Simpli.fi, we serve 100% in market—guaranteed.
