The Future of TV and Digital Video

Digital media and the Internet are rapidly transforming the television industry. From connected TV to multi-channel networks, the lines are blurring between traditional television and content delivered online. As the digital video landscape matures, the linear TV platform is evolving in lockstep, adopting new data and targeting vehicles, with addressable television advertising becoming more prevalent, and programmatic TV on the horizon. Television is still the most powerful and effective form of media and advertising ever created. So, rather than running away from it, how can brands embrace and benefit from the evolution of television? Where should they be investing in video? Stay tuned; and get ready for the golden age of television, all over again, albeit in the digital age.

Mass Media vs Personalization: Striking The Right Balance

From traditional linear TV to individual influencers, to niche social networks, there is no shortage of viable media outlets to serve as your brand’s platform in the constant battle to connect with consumers, some with vast audiences and wide reach, others with small, highly curated users. What it often comes down is Awareness vs Relevance, understanding which platform will achieve which objective, and striking the right balance between the two. This session will dive into the oft-conflicting goals of generating wide scale Brand Awareness with personalization and building one-on-one consumer relationships. What are the media and digital tool sets needed to make the most out of your budget? What are the data strategies that will ensure you’re taking the right approach and messaging to the appropriate platforms with the customers you actually want to target? And how close are we to achieving the ever-elusive holy grail of “personalization at scale?”
