2022 midterms will be focused on federal, statewide and local elections, with competitive races up and down the ballot. For political campaigns, understanding audience screen preference and cost efficiencies is a critical component to optimizing budgets and reducing excess targeting. Through the partnership, advertisers will gain localized political campaign insights from Cross Screen Media as well as cost and reach analysis of Yahoo’s DSP’s inventory across CTV, digital and linear to more efficiently and effectively reach voters. The 2022 midterm elections are expected to be one of the first campaign cycles where CTV will take a more significant share; roughly $1.5 billion.1
The Cross Screen Media platform enables advertisers to plan, activate, and measure CTV, linear TV, and digital video down to the hyper-local level. Brands and agencies benefit from unified planning with high value inventory, and full visibility into how each campaign performed across all screens. Networks and inventory partners can quickly highlight the highest value inventory for their customers to effectively reach their custom audience.
ScreenImpact, Cross Screen Media’s new measurement solution, displays frequency and deduplicated reach at the total level and is split out by screen type and network. Users can seamlessly toggle between digital metrics like CPMs and linear TV metrics like GRPs for every output, empowering marketers with all levels of experience to leverage these insights. The measurement solution builds upon Yahoo’s robust suite of planning and measurement tools by amplifying Yahoo’s ability to provide zip code-level insights, which are critical to political campaigns.
Through the partnership, both Yahoo and Cross Screen Media advertisers benefit from the companies’ robust data insights, which can be activated across CTV and all digital channels within Yahoo’s omnichannel DSP. Advertisers will be able to effectively expand the on-target reach and measurement of each campaign through access to Yahoo’s premium inventory.
