TV advertising consistently outperformed digital in ROI, and provided a higher return on investment than print or radio, according to a study from Neustar that covered 2010-2016. In 2017, consumer electronics marketers report almost 4 times the business lift for a 1$ TV spend; for movie marketers, it’s over 3 times. “Dollar for dollar, TV provides the most scale and delivers the highest return on ad spend from both a sales and awareness perspective,” said the report, commissioned by Turner and Horizon Media. “It’s important to note that even TV will reach a saturation point, and the next marketing dollar should be spent elsewhere. To ensure an optimized marketing mix, advertisers should adopt a data-driven approach that can inform the ideal media allocation across all channels based on all internal and external market conditions to meet their performance goals.”
