It’s time the legacy TV players and digital stakeholders got together to create shared value for the advertising ecosystem. Today, it’s possible to utilize TV data to leverage audience targeting and data-driven campaigns, just like you can for digital. It used to be that legacy television advertising was mostly done via traditional media planning, purchased for specific programming and based on a small number of audience demographics. That made it difficult to understand how it connected back to other campaigns, not to mention the impact on ROI. Yet, TV content offers an emotional connection to its audience far superior to other advertising platforms. It’s remained a big part of the marketing budget for many media buyers, who spend upwards of $178 billion annually, or 35% of all advertising revenue.

The Cybertruck Shows How Tesla Could Dominate the Auto Industry

Article | February 19, 2020

With a collective gasp and puzzled looks, the world was recently introduced to Tesla’s newest vehicle. The so-called Cybertruck is an angular, stainless steel, all-electric pickup truck that quickly became polarizing. The launch didn’t go very smoothly. The truck’s windows shattered when its lead designer smashed them with a metal ball, causing Tesla founder Elon Musk to curse under his breath. Regardless, pre-orders for the Cybertruck approached 250,000 within a week. Such an explosion of interest with no advertising, and an arguably disastrous grand opening event, is probably unprecedented. On a global scale, it’s clear that electric vehicles — known colloquially as EVs —have reached a new level of public acceptance. As of 2018, more than five million EVs were sold around the world. Canadians have been somewhat slower at adopting this technology, with all-electric vehicles representing 1.2 per cent of sales in 2018, or approximately 46,000 units. That said, Canadian sales of EVs grew 165 per cent year-over-year in 2018.
