We are delighted that the ISM team will be attending our Video Everywhere Summit  for the first time as members.”
Local broadcast TV trade association Television Bureau of Advertising is pushing the industry to convert local broadcast audience measurement from a ratings-based to an impressions-based measurement system. “As technology continues to weave its way into how and where we watch local broadcast television, it’s imperative for the industry to measure the entire audience, no matter where they watch,” said Steve Lanzano, president and CEO of TVB. “The use of Impressions simplifies how we evaluate media across platforms and makes it easier to include local TV in the cross-platform consideration set.”
Said Julio Marenghi, president, Sales, CBS Television Stations, “We welcome the switch from ratings to Impressions-based measurement here at the CBS Television Stations. We see this as the future currency and have already started working with clients using CPM modeling, giving us the ability to compete with other mediums. Spot TV has a history of CPM usage that went away and can now return to help keep local TV in the conversation with advertisers.” ABC Owned Television Stations are onboard, too. “The strength of our owned stations is in our commitment to serving our local communities across platforms,” said Wendy McMahon, President. “We see the transition from ratings to Impressions as aligned with the consumer shift to cross-platform viewing, a shift we have taken advantage of to grow total audience.”
Also heeding TVB’s call is Hearst Television, serving media markets across 39 states. Hearst TV announced its stations will immediately begin transacting advertising-sales agreements based on audience impressions, simplifying the collective buying of various video advertising offerings. “This is without question one of the most dynamic times in the history of our industry,” said Eric Meyrowitz, Hearst Television SVP, sales. “Helping facilitate a change that ultimately allows for easier transaction across multiple platforms is something we are excited and eager to be a part of.” 
As the search for work/life balance grows increasingly elusive, personal passions and interests often take a backseat to professional work. Lee Nadler, the new Chairman of the Board of Directors of The Advertising Club of New York, has found happiness by merging his passion for philanthropy with his career. He shares his story in Cynsiders.
Social media and video advertising is still a winning combination, according to a survey conducted by Twitter, Publicis Media, Firefish and The Numbers Lab. Consumers who saw in-feed video ads were more likely to consider taking brand actions, according to the research, and two weeks after seeing video ads, 89% of consumers who made purchases remembered seeing the ads.
Microsoft announced new audience targeting solutions in open beta, combining customer data with new Microsoft technology. Product Audiences helps connect customers to products by creating remarketing lists for specific products in shopping campaigns; unique product IDs track what a customer interacts with while an ad display matches that product ID, helping reach more customers who have a clear purchase intent. Microsoft reports customers using the Product Audiences feature  pilot study saw up to double the conversion rate and a 40% lower CPA. Similar Audiences automatically finds new customers who have similar interests to existing remarketing lists; in early pilot studies, customers saw 70% higher conversion rates from Similar Audiences when compared to non-targeted users for the same ads.
