Digital Advertising Platforms:

Display Advertising is great for ads on computers and email

Digital Display Advertising

A cornerstone in the digital advertising landscape, digital display ads are prevalent on numerous websites. Whether they’re banners, sidebars, or interstitials, their dynamic and visual nature caters perfectly for brand awareness campaigns and direct response. By keeping your target audience in mind, you can design display campaigns that truly resonate.

CTV (Connected TV) Advertising

The evolution of television into the digital space brings us CTV advertising. These ads grace the screens of internet-connected TVs, allowing advertisers to engage with their target audience using the familiarity of the TV format, but with the precision of digital campaigns.

OTT (Over-The-Top) Advertising

OTT platforms represent a significant shift in content consumption, bypassing traditional cable or broadcast mediums. By placing ads on platforms like Netflix or Hulu, you’re not just engaging in OTT advertising; you’re connecting with an audience that’s actively chosen their content. Tailoring your ads to the audience’s preferences here can yield impressive engagement rates.

ZTV Advertising

ZTV delivers targeted CTV advertising at low CPMs and brings several additional benefits to multiple advertising use cases, including:

  • Local advertisers wanting to focus on delivery of TV ads on the ZIP codes in their service areas at a lower CPM than typically required for cable zone targeting.
  • Performance advertisers looking to minimize CPA and/or maximize ROAS measures.
  • Multi-location businesses such as retail, QSR, franchises, and dealerships that operate in specific trade zones and/or zips. ZTV provides more granular targeting than DMA and Cable Zone buys, while also providing enhanced attribution and reporting insights.
  • National advertisers wanting to compensate for under-delivery of linear TV by targeting specific ZIP codes that have a higher usage of CTV streaming compared to linear TV viewing.
Mobile Phone Advertising

Mobile Advertising

In a world that's rapidly pivoting to mobile, mobile advertising cannot be ignored. Whether they're display banners, video campaigns, or interactive elements optimized for touchscreens, mobile ads present a direct line to your target audience wherever they are.

Transitioning from Theory to Practice

With a clear grasp of these advertising platforms, the next challenge is crafting campaigns that stand out. Regardless of the platform - be it Digital Display, CTV, OTT, ZTV, or Mobile Advertising - the golden rule remains: always prioritize the needs and preferences of your target audience. This ensures that every digital campaign not only reaches but also deeply resonates.
