Cynopsis Special Report:
With Uber-Local Messaging More Important than Ever, Gamut Gets Personal

Streaming may be replacing stamps, but the core tenet remains the same: If you want to engage consumers and drive ROI, you need to reach specific audiences with specific messaging.

While he characterized reports of Showtime’s streaming content moving to Paramount+ as “rumor,” Paramount Global CEO Bob Bakish acknowledged the subject has come up. Speaking at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia + Technology Conference, Bakish said, “If we weren’t having that conversation, you should fire all of us, because we should have that conversation. It’s not like we’ve made a decision that we’re going to do something on such-and-such a date. But I guarantee you that media will continue to evolve. I guarantee you that our product line will continue to evolve and get better. And I guarantee you that we will continue to work with distributors and provide value to them such that they benefit.”

According to the latest Beta Research cable subscriber study, the top ranked basic cable networks (based on percentage of total adults rating them important to their enjoyment of cable) were: ESPN, Food Network, and History (all 42%), and Discovery Channel (40%). Favorite basic networks among women were Food Network (24%), HGTV (17%), CNN (15%), Hallmark Channel (14%), and ID (13%). Men named ESPN (31%), History (20%), ESPN2 (18%), Fox News Channel (17%), CNN (16%), Discovery Channel (16%), and Fox Sports 1 (16%).

Consumers are watching more full video ads than ever, according to Integral Ad Science’s latest Media Quality Report. Both desktop video and mobile web video saw completion rates increase worldwide when compared to H1 2021, while drop-off rates decreased across both environments. In particular, ad completion rates for mobile web improved twice as much in absolute annual terms when compared to desktop. Other findings include:
· There is a point of diminishing return for viewability. The achievement of 100% viewability is not the optimal way for marketers to measure success. Targeting higher viewability with pre-bid segments may lead to increased quality impressions, but the report found that marketers pushing for total viewability KPIs can risk compromising scale and elevate cost, thus reducing ROI.
· Non-optimized-ad-fraud rates rose 10 times faster than optimized. The first half of 2022 saw invalid traffic increase across all formats and environments. Optimized against ad-fraud (with anti-fraud protection) averages rose worldwide between 0.1 and 0.4 percentage points annually. Campaigns without anti-fraud protection saw fraud rates increase 10-times faster.
· Contextual targeting offers the best cookieless-world solution. With third-party cookies being phased out, the latest MQR predicts that methods such as contextual targeting will be the most privacy-friendly and effective method for advertisers to reach the right audience at the right time to drive desired outcomes.
