Big-Picture Planning – Understanding Value in a Multi-Screen World
Video advertising was once easily defined as a 15-second, 30-second or 60-second TV spot. Today, people’s changing viewing behaviors across devices can make the definition of video advertising unclear, and the number of formats that advertisers need to create for has expanded. Where do 6-second TV ads, digital gifs and cinemagraphs fall in the spectrum of advertising across people’s screens? And what does that mean for marketers today and tomorrow who are trying to plan video campaigns that cut across platforms? This session will discuss how marketers can achieve real business value across screens through insights on the complexity of consumer attention, the impact of digital advertising platforms on TV campaigns and best practices for cross-media planning and measurement.
