TV streaming drives down funnel actionthat’s the conclusion of a joint whitepaper from Roku and Microsoft, Reimagining Cross-Channel Measurement, which looked at actions consumers take after seeing a Microsoft ad or Roku TV streaming ad. Roku TV streaming ads lead to a 9% increase in brand searches per user and 11% increase in clicks per user, according to the report, and cross-channel exposure increases engagement – exposure to Roku ads lead to a nearly 18% increase overall in click-through rate on the Microsoft Audience Network. The findings are evidence that the advertising products work better together helping consumers discover, research and purchase products.
