TV Audience Strategies for Spring Buying Season

Spring is usually synonymous with cherry blossoms, barbeques and softball. But as the weather turns warmer, it also means that consumers are in the market for a wide variety of new products from home goods to vacation packages to a new wardrobe. Given the collective buying power during this season, marketers are rightfully vying for consumer attention.

As digital advertising has evolved, advertisers have found unique ways to uncover new audiences and reach them with a personalized message. However, one thing that has remained a challenge – and still works independently from digital – is TV.

Billions of dollars are spent on TV advertising each year and, while it remains effective to reach mass audiences, performance insights, best practices and TV viewership patterns still have little to no influence on digital strategies. Bridging this gap between TV and digital means that marketers have new, data-driven insights about consumers that will help them to better understand what drives a brand’s KPIs.
