CTV & OTT
What is CTV and OTT and why should I care?
These acronyms mean "Connected Television" and "over-the-top," as in, "to watch connected tv, the internet must stream over-the-top of my television."
Basically, any time you hear about those Millenials "cutting the cord," they are switching from a traditional cable provider to streaming content.
Netflix. Hulu. YouTube TV. Amazon Prime. You've probably heard of them. You probably have a tv that connects to the internet, or at least a Roku which allows you to stream from dozens of apps. Ever wonder where these apps get their commercials from? Connected TV Agencies like Gameplan Digital can buy commercial space, allowing you to reach a wider array of your customer base.
Unlike traditional TV ads, CTV & OTT allow you to granularly target your customer base, layering multitudes of datapoints. If you buy Advertising space on traditional cable, you are stuck paying thousands of dollars to target people who may or may not be your target audience. With CTV & OTT, you ONLY pay for what you spend, and the targeting is performed BEFORE the ad is even run through #BigData.
Why choose Gameplan for CTV advertising?
Much like the TVs, we're connected.
If you pay some contractors, freelancers, or even boutique agencies for Connected TV advertising, there's a strong chance you're paying a middleman. They'll create a video to show you and then say they're running the ad, when in reality THEY are hiring someone.
We do everything in-house. We have connections with the world's largest streaming platforms which allows us to reach virtually anywhere TV is streamed. Our CTV talent comes from the largest agencies in Connected TV, so they know what you're doing.
This results in you getting CTV ads for a TENTH of the price you would pay elsewhere.
It's good to have connections.
You need to get a gameplan.
It's more than just our name. It's more than just our slogan. We fully buy into the concepts of preparation, experience, value, and transparency. When you achieve all four of those in unison you have a Gameplan.
