“You would not believe how many people are trying to sell me OTT”. I would, I hear it all the time.
What I don’t believe is what some sellers are saying to sell CTV|OTT. Clearly there is a lot of pressure from the top.
I learned long ago, I can develop and help more clients with my two ears than I can with my foot in my mouth.
The simple truth is that we all have access to fantastic inventory. It is not the inventory that takes a campaign from good to great. It starts with listening to your client, understanding their goals, needs, & challenges. Developing a strategy to deliver. CTV | OTT is more than audience extension
the data partners
cross-device planning and execution
insights & improvements made as a result of world-class reporting& follow up
knowledge, skill, & communication between the client salespeople & operations (they are typically not in the same city & the communication is run through a daisy chain before the campaign starts)
trust that the original campaign plan was run pure and as agreed
best practices established, articulated & explained
CTV | OTT is the gold rush, it should be, it’s fantastic for advertisers that want more than Age & Gender, like Purchase Intent, Lifestyle, Income, Interests, Geo.
