Attribution For TV Advertising 101

Mary Grace Scully

Content Specialist

Our first-ever ‘Simulmedia Live’ episode on Three Questions to Ask Your Attribution Provider generated plenty of buzz about the basics of attribution, inspiring us to dive deeper.

Last week, we held a live training course all about attribution in TV advertising, including how it’s measured, how advertisers can use it to optimize their campaigns, and examples of how real brands put it into practice.

The trainer, Steven Golus, led the session, which included a live studio audience and nearly 100 more who watched the livestream remotely.

Then, Matt Collins, SVP of Marketing at Simulmedia, hosted a panel discussion with Achim Spelten (VP of Marketing, Offline Channels, for Babbel) and growth marketing expert Greg Fitzgerald (founder of Belbrook Media) to share their experience and advice on how to put attribution for TV into practice.
