The potential of addressable TV advertising


Are your rivals going to let viewers respond immediately to TV ads on their iPads, while your ads just hope to be remembered?

Second-screening, where consumers use mobile devices while watching TV, presents great opportunities for brands, retailers and financial services, and is on the increase.

Second screening: the stats

It has always been perfectly natural for people to flick through magazines, answer phone calls and decide on purchases in a mail order magazine while watching TV.

Transposing familiar behaviours to mobile devices drives successful second screen experiences and this is reflected in the high proportion (86%) of the audience using second screens while they watch television: surfing the web, answering mobile calls, texting, instant messaging, emailing and making purchases online.

The behaviour is even more pronounced in younger generations, with 46% of 18 to 24 year olds commenting on shows via the second screen compared to 14% of 55 to 64 year olds, and the trend is one of growth.

Second screen experiences can be monetised through commercial transactions or via non-transactional models and my previous blog illustrated some successful examples of both. Non-transactional models generally enhance the existing TV advertising model through a range of options:

  • Interactive advertising.
  • T-commerce.
