How the Online Video Market will Impact Advertising

The evolution of online digital video will significantly impact the development of U.S. television advertising -- hopefully, for the better. comScore released a report entitled "Surviving the Upfronts in a Cross-Media World," an actionable guide for success in navigating the crossmedia landscape during this year's TV and digital upfronts.

The report examines the maturation of the online video market as a supplement to traditional television advertising and the effectiveness of cross-media campaigns in television programming.

Also featured in the report are actionable insights for advertisers, agencies and media buyers who are considering incorporating digital video formats into their media mix.

"With the digital upfronts in their second year, more advertisers are considering adding digital video to their media mix in long-form TV programming and short-form video," said Judy Bahary, SVP, Marketing Solutions at comScore.

According to the latest market study by comScore, there's an incredible synergy between TV and digital video formats when used together in cross-media campaigns, driving effectiveness levels higher than either medium used on its own.

As the online video market continues to develop, we should see it evolve from its current supporting role to an essential part of media planning in the annual upfronts for major advertisers.

Key findings from the market study include:
  • The online video audience has reached a point of near saturation at approximately 180 million monthly unique viewers, but average engagement levels are rising as it continues to play a more prominent role in the online experience.
  • Adding a digital video component to a TV media plan can increase the effective reach of the campaign in a very efficient manner.
  • Digital video ad formats are just as effective as TV ads. But TV and digital video have a synergistic effect when used together, making this media mix more effective than either one on its own.
  • Multi-Screen consumers are a fast-growing segment and need to be marketed to on multiple screens in order for campaigns to achieve optimal reach and frequency levels.
  • Younger age segments are generally more receptive to digital advertising than TV, highlighting the importance of incorporating digital video into the media buying and planning process.

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards.

Why a Distributed Workforce will Raise Productivity

While most senior executives at progressive organizations have already evolved their human resource policies to accommodate employee desire for flexible working models, others still resist change. Unfortunately, many of the laggards are now experiencing the "Great Resignation" phenomenon. The global pandemic required business leaders to rethink when, where, and how their knowledge workers and front-line employees perform their work. Yet even with the ongoing pandemic recovery slowly underway, some organizations are still trying to determine their workforce approach. According to the latest worldwide market study and recent survey data from International Data Corporation (IDC), stability and geography will likely define the balance of future work strategies. Distributed Workforce Market Development On a global basis, physical office sites are expected to be the dominant location for work as legacy organizations eventually find themselves in a more stable environment.
