How Agencies Thrive: Why Advertisers Are Gravitating From Linear TV to Connected TV with Jeremy Smith from Telaria

In this episode of How Agencies Thrive, Jeremy Smith from Telaria joins Meredith Henstchel of StackAdapt, to dig into all things TV, starting with all of the industry acronyms that tend to be befuddling—OTT, CTV and linear TV.

The advantages of advertising on connected TV (CTV) are endless but not everyone has made the leap. Contrary to linear TV, advertisers can access real-time data which allows instant performance evaluation and a strategy shift, if required.

“From a targeting perspective, CTV offers data-rich targeting that digital buyers are used to right on desktop and mobile,” says Jeremy Smith, Vice President, Sales Engineering, Telaria. “Whereas linear TV has typically been used to achieve top-of-the-funnel metrics, CTV can really kind of dive in on full funnel. So, not just bringing brand awareness, but also helping users engage with that brand beyond the ad exposure.”

Listen in as the differences of advertising on CTV compared to linear TV and traditional TV are revealed. Certainly, the audiences on CTV are far more engaged and receptive to the messaging.

Is it possible to mimic digital advertising strategies for CTV advertising as well? We take a closer look at the similarities, and dissimilarities, between advertising on CTV and linear TV.

Whether you have or haven’t gravitated to CTV, you will still take away some actionable insights from this episode!
