GroundTruth Expands Location-Based Targeting To Optimize Online Advertising Strategies

GroundTruth | June 11, 2020

  • GroundTruth, the leading global location technology company, announced the launch of several new capabilities that will expand the reach of location-based marketing through cross-device channels.

  • With the introduction of its new Connected TV (CTV) solution and Desktop offering, coupled with its existing mobile capabilities, GroundTruth is providing marketers broader access to cross-device channels in order to drive consumers to physical points of interest or convert them online.

  • The convergence of Connected TV, Desktop, and mobile enable advanced audience targeting and cross-device measurement for location-based advertising.

Campaign insights can then be used to optimize omnichannel messaging or targeting in real-time to increase performance.

CTV and Desktop ads make addressable targeting highly effective at reaching audiences especially among the increasing number of cord-cutters in the U.S. With the launch of its CTV and Desktop solutions, GroundTruth will offer agencies, brands and local businesses the opportunity to access and deploy CTV and Desktop ad inventory the same way they execute their mobile campaigns. They will also be able to leverage GroundTruth's location-based audiences and targeting capabilities to reach specific audiences and understand incremental foot traffic driven to their locations by each advertising campaign and channel. Using cohesive sequential messaging, the convergence of the expanded offering opens up brands to maximize effectiveness while telling their brand or campaign story.

GroundTruth builds audiences based on consumers' past visitation behaviors through its global collection of over 30 billion annual visits to places of business and points of interest. The new capabilities will help to extend the reach of local targeting to customers in various places with varied interests with customized ads. By leveraging digital identity resolution delivered by cross-device graph, digital ad IDs are mapped to GroundTruth's location-based audiences across mobile, desktop and connected TV devices.

We are excited to expand our offerings to new channels to better unify advertising vehicles and help deliver more comprehensive results for our customers. By developing a solution for Connected TV and Desktop we are strengthening capabilities for omnichannel location-based advertising strategies and offering the ability to effectively market to audiences and drive ROI through various online and offline elements. Advertisers who integrate audience targeting on Connected TV and other devices with location targeting on mobile can execute an incredibly powerful cross-channel marketing plan.

Accuracy has long been a core focus of GroundTruth, who's technology platform is powered by GroundTruth's Blueprints™, which precisely captures millions of businesses and points of interest, the offering will reach users that are associated with audience segment groups based on their real-world visitation history and demographics.

Marketron Pitch Introduces a Robust New Social Media Feature for Pitch, One of the Company’s Digital Advertising Platform

Marketron | October 13, 2020

Marketron, the leading provider of enterprise revenue management and digital software solutions, today introduced a robust new social media feature for Pitch, one of the company’s digital advertising platforms. Pitch offers a powerful set of tools and resources for broadcast sales teams to create, execute and manage digital campaigns that maximize their clients’ online advertising reach. Now, Pitch makes it easy and seamless to build proposals integrating Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads into the overall blend of third-party digital tactics based on advertisers’ campaign objectives. By 2023, social media users in the U.S. are expected to top 250 million. Roughly two-thirds of U.S. adults report that they are Facebook users, and a large majority of Instagram users say they have made purchases as a result of social media advertising. “Clearly, social media offers tremendous opportunities for our radio customers and their advertisers to reach engaged and highly targeted audiences — but working directly with social platforms to purchase ads can be complicated, time-consuming and counterproductive,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, Senior Vice President of Product at Marketron. “Adding social to the third-party digital tactics in Pitch is the latest example of how we are constantly evolving our products based on customers’ needs. By removing these complexities, it is easier than ever for radio stations to create, deliver and manage highly integrated and customized digital ad campaigns.” With the new Pitch social tactic, sales teams are able to include Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads in a fully integrated campaign alongside other digital elements such as display and video ads, geofencing, connected TV/OTT and search engine marketing.

Colorado Companies Bounce Back Amid Pandemic by Leveraging the Power of Digital Advertising

AdCellerant | October 07, 2020

While many businesses have closed their doors or continue to struggle, some Colorado companies have been able to thrive during the economic downturn by leveraging the power of digital advertising, technology, and education. Several local media companies were able to educate and advise their advertising clients on strategy and execution, by leveraging support from their technology and service provider AdCellerant. These media companies helped their advertisers regain lost revenue from the COVID pandemic, and in some cases, generate more business than pre-COVID. Their efforts included hosting free educational webinars showcasing the power of digital advertising during a pandemic, providing targeted plans and guides for specific industries focused on recovery, and research focused on industry shifts/changes to stay in front of local customers when it mattered most. In-person events have essentially become extinct in Colorado due to COVID. The dramatic end caused by Social Distancing guidelines have left many event related businesses without a clear path forward. Unframed Digital, leveraging AdCellerant Digital Services, helped a local arts festival shift their event completely online. Unframed Digital helped by targeting over 200,000 people's mobile devices, promoting the now "online" event, leading to a huge boost in website traffic as well as generating a new online revenue stream for everyone involved. The festival was able to recoup business that would have otherwise been completely lost due to the pandemic.

Streaming TV reached a record high in April-Nielsen

Nielsen | May 23, 2022

Nielsen's monthly total TV viewing snapshot, The Guage, reported April as another month of high records for streaming. Streaming captured 30.4% of full TV viewing and surpassed its previous record of 29.7% set in March 2022. While overall TV viewership fell by 2.1% in March, streaming volume remained nearly unchanged, helping to boost its share by over 0.6%. Even though Netflix said it lost 200,000 subscribers in the first quarter, which sent its shares into a tailspin, its share price stayed at 6.6%. YouTube had a 6.1 %, which is up from a 6.0 %. Hulu had a 3.3 %, which stayed the same. Amazon Prime Video had a 2.5 %, up from 2.3%, and Disney Plus had a 1.7 %, which is down from 1.8 %. Other streamers had 9.2% of the market, less than the 9.8% they had before. Nielsen said that a significant drop in sports viewing and the end of seasons and series of dramas hurt the share of broadcast. With the NBA playoffs and the final games of the Final Four, people were watching sports on cable. However, 16.9% fewer people watched cable news. The Gauge also showed that HBO Max reached a 1% share of streaming for the first time. This achievement allowed it to move out of the "Other Streaming" category and join other streaming services that have already passed the 1% share mark. The "Other Streaming" category, which includes all high-bandwidth video streaming on TV that isn't broken out separately, has grown by more than two share points since The Gauge was first released in May 2021. According to Nielsen's State of Play report, this category's steady growth shows that audiences are becoming more interested in the growing number of streaming platforms.
