Political advertisers miss between 25% and 40% of potential voters through their existing strategies, according to a report from programmatic media company MiQ. “Not only do TV buys begin to reach a point of diminishing returns more quickly than in the past, but campaigns that dial up on GRPs in search of incremental reach points end up wreaking havoc on their overall costs,” said the report. Seventy-five percent of linear TV viewers in the US are above the age of 50, noted the report. Viewers ages 18-34 made up 9.8% of overall linear viewership, while accounting for 54% of the CTV audience.

Linear TV will account for 57% of US video advertising spend in 2022, projects eMarketer, down from 62% in 2021 and 71% in 2020. Meanwhile the market share of CTV advertising will increase 18% this year, up from 15% in 2021 and 11% in 2020.

Over 60% of marketers reported privacy and identity were bigger concerns than fraud and invalid traffic. “One year after Apple changed their device ID tracking model, we’re recognizing that once-promising identity alternatives such as universal IDs and first-party data collection are not providing enough scale,” said Jake Moskowitz?, Head of the Emodo Institute & VP of Data Strategy. “It’s paramount to equip brands and marketers with tools for addressability, as the concerns and negative effects of campaign effectiveness and scale are very real.”
