Connected TV Media
Teads, the global end-to-end platform, today announces the next step in its evolution, adding connected TV to its suite of media to expand audience reach and better deliver business outcomes for brands. Known for its inRead video and display formats, Teads’ addition of CTV gives advertisers and their agencies the ability to seamlessly buy a new array of high-attention, quality media to deliver and quantify better business outcomes. After running a successful one year beta program, Teads is adding CTV as the latest channel in Teads’ mission to future proof partner success by enabling quality at scale and building an optimal ad experience for brands and consumers.

With new access to high quality environments across every screen, Teads’ CTV expansion aligns closely with the platform’s legacy of creating ad experiences that are high-value for brands and publishers while respecting the end consumer. Unique to Teads’ new CTV offering, brands will have access to creative optimization, driving action with the use of interactivity, omnichannel frequency capping and remarketing, as well as omnichannel attention measurement. The CTV offering mirrors Teads’ current solutions, guaranteeing a curated marketplace of premium content for brands to advertise within, and ensuring immersive ad experiences that are relevant for consumers.

By adding TV inventory to the mix, brands are now able to buy across TV, mobile and desktop through the Teads platform, fully leveraging access to nearly 2 billion monthly unique users. Teads tapped into their existing premium publisher relationships, like Scripps, to unlock access to cross-screen audiences for brands. Tom Sly, vice president of programmatic revenue for The E.W. Scripps Company said:  “We have found great value in our collaboration with Teads on its expanded omnichannel offering to provide advertisers with unique reach for Scripps’ premium CTV audiences. Our Teads CTV relationship has resulted in impressive revenue growth, and we’re enthused about what the future of this partnership offers.”

This access to premium, brand safe media allows brands to reach consumers throughout the customer journey at different moments of the day for more contextualized targeting, as well as strengthening advertisers’ capabilities at the top of the marketing funnel through the Teads platform. Teads is initially launching its CTV solution in the US with additional territories to begin rolling out later this year.

Mediahub US CEO, Sean Corcoran said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Teads on an expanded cross-screen campaign that leverages the importance and value of CTV. We saw positive results in a recent campaign leveraging Teads’ new omnichannel offering yielding high attention and a favorable lift in viewership for a leading entertainment client.”

During its beta run, Teads successfully partnered with brands across every major category and saw positive outcomes across the funnel, from garnering high attention to brand awareness, purchase intent and tune-in conversion.

We saw positive results in a recent campaign leveraging Teads’ new omnichannel offering yielding high attention and a favorable lift in viewership for a leading entertainment client.”  

Teads’ CTV offering debuts on the heels of its recently launched Teads Attention Program, which advances omnichannel attention measurement for brands, and also complements Teads Studio, its creative arm to help brands resonate with ideal audiences. Teads Studio’s team of designers and creative strategists are able to enhance and reimagine existing assets in order to drive better outcomes across all of Teads’ high-attention, premium inventory – now across digital and TV.

Jeremy Arditi, co-CEO, Teads, said: “For Teads, CTV was a natural extension of our media suite as we look to innovate and continue to offer new advertising solutions for our clients that are focused on quality, immersive experiences that drive attention, and ultimately business outcomes. We are really excited to work with a new host of publisher partners and connect them with our outstanding, existing base of advertisers and their agencies.”

Uber Launches Dedicated Advertising Division To Serve The World’s Biggest Brands

Uber | October 20, 2022

Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) has formally launched its advertising division and unveiled Uber Journey Ads, an engaging way for brands to connect with consumers throughout the entire ride process. Journey Ads are the latest initiative from a dedicated team formed at Uber this year under advertising veteran Dr. Mark Grether, previously with Amazon Advertising, CEO of Sizmek, and Co-Founder of Xaxis. Leveraging Uber’s first-party data and insights across its mobility and delivery businesses presents the world’s biggest companies with compelling new surfaces and closed-loop attribution to reach Uber’s audience of 122 million monthly active users. With the addition of Journey Ads, Uber has created an engaging model that enables brands to share strategic campaigns across Uber’s mobility and delivery businesses, while connecting with consumers in brand-safe and captivating ways. Journey Ads place relevant brand content and offers in front of purchase-minded audiences as they transact throughout their journey – while waiting for their driver and during their trip. Over 40 marquee brands have already partnered with Uber to run Journey Ads including NBCUniversal, Heineken, and United Artists Releasing. With one-hundred percent share of voice during the entire trip, early results show that consumers were exposed to the ad content for approximately two minutes, resulting in two to six times the brand-performance lift compared to other benchmarks. Brands and advertisers can now partner with Uber on a variety of advertising options on the Uber and Uber Eats apps, and beyond: Journey Ads that capture consumers’ attention during their trip with ad units that drive purchases and brand awareness as they move with purpose. Prominently placed Sponsored Listings across Uber Eats to get brands ahead of the competition and capture the attention of ready-to-purchase consumers, with clients such as Shake Shack already seeing increased engagement, ROI and customer acquisition. Sponsored Emails that enable brands to promote exclusive offers to Uber and Uber Eats consumers through email delivery directly into their inboxes. Homepage Billboards that give brands the ability to prominently display messaging on the homepage of Uber Eats, the world’s most-downloaded food delivery app. Post-checkout Ads which allow brands to promote to purchase-minded consumers as they await updates on their order. Storefront Ads where CPG brands can enjoy prominent placement of their products at the top of a digital storefront. PepsiCo has been a pilot partner of storefront ad offerings. In Menu Ads that enable restaurants to feature their seasonal or specially priced menu item to entice consumers to take advantage of the promotional offer. Chipotle has been a pilot partner on this effort. Highly visible digital out-of-home Car Top Ads which enable brands to reach consumers based on location and time of day across top U.S. cities. Tablet Advertising pilot which will see strategic partners pilot in-car tablets in LA and SF. ”We have a global audience of valuable, purchase-minded consumers who, as part of our core business, tell us where they want to go and what they want to get,” said Dr. Grether, General Manager, for Uber’s advertising division. “While these consumers are making purchase decisions and waiting for their destination or delivery we can engage them with messages from brands that are relevant to their purchase journeys. And with 1.87 billion trips last quarter, that means we can connect advertisers to consumers on average five times per month across rides and delivery. ”We have a global audience of valuable, purchase-minded consumers who, as part of our core business, tell us where they want to go and what they want to get,” said Dr. Grether, General Manager, for Uber’s advertising division. “Through our advertising division, we can help leading brands grow their relationships with consumers by connecting them at a moment when a customer is uniquely attentive. By tapping into our mobility media network, our pilot campaigns have surpassed expectations in terms of brand lift, engagement, and other campaign goals. We’re eager to continue working with our partners to identify best-in-class offerings – such as in-car tablet advertising – that will ensure they’re engaging with captive and engaged audiences.” In addition to Uber’s unique ability to help brands connect with consumers at relevant points throughout their journeys or transactions, the company provides comprehensive reporting and analysis. By offering this unique view into consumer behavior, brands are able to fine-tune their understanding of their consumers and create more impactful campaigns. About Uber Uber’s mission is to create opportunity through movement. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 34 billion trips later, we’re building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.

Ipsos MMA and Adform Partner to Leverage First-Party Data for Unified Marketing Measurement and Optimization

Ipsos MMA, Adform | September 20, 2022

Ipsos MMA, a recognized leader in measuring and optimizing advertiser marketing investments, has partnered with Adform, a global, independent, and fully integrated advertising platform, to bolster its Unified Marketing Measurement and Optimization, leveraging Adform's ID Fusion solution. This approach integrates first-party data signals across the digital media ecosystem to build consumer journeys without the need for third-party cookies. This unique partnership will help advertisers futureproof ad measurement while platforms are shifting their data sharing policies and privacy regulations are becoming more rigorous. The announcement comes as various ad platforms deprecate the third-party IDs within their log-level data, preventing brands from determining the effectiveness of their media campaigns in real-time at highly granular levels – such as audience, creative, or placement. Many browsers and operating systems today do not allow for the generation of third-party cookies – and third-party cookies will eventually be phased out entirely. Advertisers and agency partners will not be permitted access to third-party cookie IDs. Without first or third-party measurement signals, advertisers cannot attribute specific media types to back-end key performance indicators like conversions. Adform uses a bespoke approach to track and stitch together first-party data to provide vital information for analytics and targeting. "Incorporating Adform's ID Fusion into our analytics data stack enables us to provide advertisers with quick, always-on, analytics on their digital and addressable buys. This data coupled with our unified marketing measurement approach, ensures that maximum coverage is achievable reducing data sparsity, a common issue impacting real-time marketing measurement today," said Doug Brooks, EVP of Strategic Accounts at Ipsos MMA. "The implications are clear; if you want true attribution, you need to work with transparent partners and provide true insight into media performance," said John Piccone, Adform's Regional President, Americas. "The implications are clear; if you want true attribution, you need to work with transparent partners and provide true insight into media performance," said John Piccone, Adform's Regional President, Americas. "This groundbreaking partnership allows advertisers to see how their hard-earned media budgets are performing and allows them to reallocate budget to increase return on ad spend." The partnership leverages Adform's "ID Fusion" pioneering solution, allowing advertisers to solve for a third-party "cookie-less" future. ID Fusion has been implemented since 2020 and is used across many of Adform's 25,000 clients. Earlier this year, the solution was also recognized by the industry as a powerful response to change after being awarded both The Drum and Campaign Tech Awards. The data from ID Fusion feeds into Ipsos MMA's Unified Marketing Measurement & Optimization platform, enabling marketers to cut through the noise that often dilutes effective media touchpoint and customer-level measurement. With this integration, advertisers can leverage Unified Marketing Measurement to continue to attribute touchpoints along the consumer journey and drive tactical changes to plans while in-flight to prioritize media channels, targeting tactics, creative versions, and audiences.
