MarTech Video Interview with Travis Hockersmith – VIZIO
The rise of new-age digital advertising channels such as OTT, immersive video and social media have forced traditional/linear TV adtech firms to focus on improving their analytics and attribution techniques. Despite the fast rise of immersive ad tech models, including gaming and email channels, TV advertising is far from dead.
While cord-cutting remains the biggest trend-changer in the industry, we continue to see adult audience maintaining their love-hate relationship with the TV. Though Millennials and Gen Z are still lagging in TV ad consumption, technology gives advertisers with enough evidence why they should continue their investments in TV spend and correlate that success to website, and video channels such as YouTube or now, TikTok.
In an interview with Vizio’s Travis Hockersmith explains the new emerging challenges and opportunities for TV advertisers and why they should trust these channels for higher audience retention rate.
