Today, Go Addressable, an industry initiative to advance addressable advertising, and Advertiser Perceptions released new findings that capture the latest growth, adoption, usage and trajectory for this medium.
One noteworthy finding from this latest round of research was the marked growth in the industry’s adoption and usage of this medium. Presently, 73% (or nearly three in four marketers) are using addressable TV, compared to 63% (or nearly two in three marketers) when the study was fielded this same time last year. This is a 16% increase.
“The big story behind these findings is growth,” said Dan Rosenfeld, SVP, Data Analytics & Insights, DIRECTV Advertising. “Two years into Go Addressable’s launch, we are excited to see that the needle behind adoption, usage and awareness of this medium has continued to move consistently. We take these findings to heart and remain committed to finding ways to further enhance, innovate and pioneer addressable advertising’s future.”
The study revealed positive momentum in other key areas:
Among those polled, nearly half (49%) had a combined linear and digital team planning addressable TV strategies for marketers.
The percentage of respondents citing “better measurement/proof of ROI” as a factor to consider when increasing or initiating addressable TV investments dropped from 50% to 43% in this latest study, suggesting that there has been more industry-wide education and awareness of how the medium works and its benefits over the past year.
The findings also yielded important insights when it comes to areas that need more improvement or focus. One example is the industry’s perception versus what is currently being done around attribution. Respondents, in particular, noted that they felt there is currently “inadequate attribution to prove the ROI of addressable TV advertising.” (Contrast that with the fact that Go Addressable currently works with the top 20 attribution vendors in market.)
“Addressable advertising has evolved tremendously in recent years, and clients find that using this method adds immediate value to their media plans,” said Jen Soch, Executive Director, Channel Solutions, GroupM. “Our clients need to know they can reach and engage with consumers in a targeted and personalized way while in a premium advertising environment, and addressable advertising delivers in a way that not only reaches audiences, but resonates with them.”
The study is part of an ongoing research initiative between both parties. To view the full report, as well as past studies, click here.

Programmatic Advertising, Advertiser Platforms
Business Wire | June 28, 2023
StackAdapt (www.stackadapt.com), the leading self-serve programmatic advertising platform, today announced the launch of its in-platform footfall attribution solution. This new measurement capability allows US-based brick and mortar advertisers to quantify the influence of online advertising on offline visits. To ensure superior location data, unmatched coverage, and expertise, StackAdapt has expanded its strategic partnership with Precisely PlaceIQ.
Although there is a rise in online shopping, 85.5% of all US retail sales still occur offline. Marketers today face the challenge of connecting their programmatic campaigns with offline ROI. To bridge the gap, advertisers can now leverage StackAdapt Footfall Attribution to understand the impact their advertising has in driving people to visit their retail locations. This solution allows customers to analyze the impact of their ad campaign on visitation results for multi-channel campaigns including native, display, video, connected TV (CTV), audio, and in-game channels; offering a comprehensive view of offline ROI, including visits, visitation lift, average eCPV and more.
StackAdapt provides a one-stop shop solution for measuring multi-channel offline ROI by offering insights into what channels or messages are driving in-store visits. StackAdapt leverages premiere data sets from Precisely PlaceIQ, a top tier location data provider, to ensure measurement powered by verified third-party mobile SDK data. Movement data is always deterministic, and never modeled, delivering accurate visitation outcomes that represent your campaign's performance.
"The StackAdapt Footfall Attribution report has been an instrumental tool for our team," said Kyle Muzny, owner of Muze Growth Strategies. "From discovering key insights to demonstrating the value of our digital campaigns, this new product has given us an all-in-one view of our online and offline performance better than ever before. If you rely on more than just e-commerce, and people physically visiting your business is necessary for your businesses' success, footfall attribution will be one of your more enlightening KPIs."
StackAdapt Footfall Attribution introduces key features designed to enhance user experience and provide comprehensive insights, all available on a self-serve basis. These features include the ability for users to create a “'location set” comprising multiple locations for measurement, the functionality to attach these location sets directly to campaigns and access to near real-time reporting in the platform. These features collectively offer a robust toolset for advertisers to measure and optimize their campaign performance mid-flight.
“Brick and mortar retail is a huge piece of the market, and real-world consumer action, such as foot traffic, is a key measure of success for advertisers,” explains Jasmaan Panesar, Solutions Manager at StackAdapt. “At StackAdapt, we are excited to be able to offer a self-serve solution that empowers anyone leveraging the platform to measure return on ad spend (ROAS) in terms of the lift in foot traffic from their campaigns.”
