TV Network Increases App Downloads with New TV Ad Strategy

A TV Network Keeping Pace With Its Audience

Traditional TV broadcasters wake up every day to rapidly changing consumer preferences and breathless media predictions about falling ratings, even as overall viewership has shown resilience. (For more on why ratings are falling more precipitously than viewership, check out our whitepaper.)
A national TV Network therefore wanted to increase consumption of its content through a TV Everywhere app. They needed an efficient way to find viewers beyond those they were able to reach with on-network promotion.

The Simulmedia Solution

  • Custom Audience Creation

    The Network was easily able to create a decidedly unconventional target audience, compared to most advertisers. It combined multiple demographic attributes and specific viewing behaviors.

  • Find Them Where They’ll Be Watching

    Using powerful forecasting technology, they then were able to determine what on TV this audience was most likely to watch and which ads in those programs they were most likely to see.

  • Reach-Maximizing Campaign

    As a result of these insights, the TV Network activated a campaign running on 56 networks. They used TVSquared to track website visits and app installs.

The Results

  • 66%

    of total app installs delivered

  • 70%

  • 11M

Future Optimization

Simulmedia was also able to identify which networks and dayparts were best for driving conversions. Based on those results, the client was able to optimize future campaigns and increase digital engagement.

    Simulmedia listed the networks that were most and least effective at driving app installs and web visits. The client was also able to see the amount of installs and web visits per 1K people reached to easily identify what networks were most efficient.
